Bianchi has announced the introduction of the 2016 range of Ducati branded bicycles. All of these bikes feature the common values and attributes of the Ducati and Bianchi brands – Italian design and style and advanced technological content.
The range now includes a number of new offerings including those from known segments like Mountain Bikes, Sport, Junior, Kids and E-bikes. Each segment has its own attributes and qualities. For instance, the Sport and E-bike models offer a good blend of innovation and tradition and are marked by modern and technological elements.
Junior and Kids models, meanwhile, take inspiration from the graphics of two distinct Ducati motorbikes – the Monster and the Hypermotard. Mountain Bikes, meanwhile, are laden with sporty features and elements.
This collaboration between Ducati and Bianchi has resulted to the creation of a line of bicycles that is not only modern and prepped to tackle any terrain, but also exudes distinctive Italian character.
Ducati bicycles engineered by Bianchi could be availed in in some selected Ducati Stores and in specialized bicycle stores around the world.
