Always seems to be someone that wants to buy Ducati. 1st H-D and now KTM. It would be nice if they just stayed with VW group.

I agree. I just don't think KTM is big enough to help Ducati grow. I think VW/Audi has been good for Ducati.

KTM not big enough??

They sold this year the most motorcycles of all, bigger than BMW!
Yes, they play the card of being the crazy little Austrian company, but that's image.
With Indian company Bajaj being the biggest shareholder of KTM, they have a strong financial backbone and possess 30% of the motorcycle market.

I think this is a great idea! I miss the RC-8R...
KTM has more finesse with motorcycles than VW.
The good thing of VW is: they brought structure and financial planning to Ducati. But I am sure KTM will do the same. You know, Germans, Austrians, all the same, discipline (gründlichkeit)

Just because someone "wants" to buy it doesnt mean that will happen so let's see if actually happens. Until then it's just rumor and maybe even fake news.

I want to buy V4R, but that aint happening for a while. lol
