I Ride: 2012 Ducati 1199 S
Wow!

Sounds like a car company is the potential buyer, and it's not Mercedes Benz. I wonder which one it is or would be?

Ducati already sells around 42K bikes a year (as stated in the article). How much bigger do they want to get?

Given the recent German car company purchases, I am going to guess that it's Porsche?????

That would be the best time to sell, when sales are up. You can get more money out of it.

superbikeplanet is reporting that it would be triple their investment from 2005 if they sold in 2012 for 1 Billion Euro. Pretty good return on investment to say the least.

I remember not being happy they changed the Ducati graphics, going from more intricate gold, to blocky white.

Guess it was the right move
