After a challening time for the motorcycle industry, it seems like things are looking up as Ducati sells record numbers in Q3 2021.
The Italian manufacturer saw 3% growth on the third quarter of 2020, and a 25% increase on the same period in 2019, and it means that the sales of Ducati bikes in the first nine months of 2021 has already beaten the total for the whole of 2020. So far, 49,693 motorcycles have been delivered around the world, compared to 48,042 across all 12 months last year. Which is pretty impressive.
The biggest Ducati market is in Italy, with 7,954 bikes sold, followed by the U.S with 7,475 and Germany with 5,627. And the most popular bikes are the Mutistrada V4, followed by the Ducati Scrambler 800 range, the Streefighter V4 and the perennial Monster family.
Francesco Milicia, Ducati VP Global Sales and After Sales: “Ducati closed the first nine months of the year with sales volumes that are already higher than the full year 2020, both for the bikes and for after-sales products like clothing, accessories and spare parts. The growth we are experiencing is practically widespread on all the main markets in which Ducati is present and extends across the product families. We are very satisfied with the results obtained: the community of Ducatisti is growing all over the world and the most influential magazines in the motorcycling sector are awarding important prizes to Ducati bikes. This is a source of pride and satisfaction for us here in Borgo Panigale and in all Ducati subsidiaries worldwide. The brand is now more solid and appreciated than ever and we are already focusing on next year. In fact, in these weeks, we are presenting to the world the new products for the coming year, through the web series Ducati World Première 2022”.
