Have you ever wondered why you chose to buy a Ducati ? What at first glance might seem like a banal question, actually hides some unexpected and interesting background.

In short, the Ducati style is unique and long-lived, the great classics of the past always keep up with the times and still make their mark, while the new models seem to be ahead of the times.
