Based in Bologna, Italy, Ducati was a radio manufacturer before entering motorcycle production after the end of the Second World War. Known at first for its sporty line of lightweight single-cylinder bikes, Ducati hit its stride in the early 1970s with its V-Twin sportbikes that were the pinnacle in their era. Following some financial instability in the 1990s, Ducati currently produces several desirable racing-inspired motorcycles. All current Ducatis are built with signature steel trellis frames and 90-degree V-Twin motors. It also has a rich racing history with particular dominance in World Superbike competition. Ducati offers sophisticated bikes in various distinct market segments: Superbike, Supersport, Monster, Multistrada, SportClassic and Hypermotard.
