Ducati Rider Training launched in the UK

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 23, 2011

Ducati is offering a new rider training program in 13 locations across the country for individuals who want to learn how to ride on the company’s motorcycles. Each location will consist of a partnership between a dealer and training facility. These facilities were carefully selected for their capability to offer the high training standards of Ducati.

These training facilities will be linked to a franchised dealership of Ducati so that authorized dealers can provide full service support from training to purchase. At first, the training will be held in one of the authorized training centers on 125cc motorcycles before participants can proceed to the school’s bigger bikes.

Afterwards, participants will be transferred to the Ducati dealership where the participant can have training on the Ducati Monster 696. Each course will be custom-made to suit the participant’s ability as well as riding experience. Pricing will vary for each bespoke program too. In addition, riders who are over the 21 years old can take their full license on a motorcycle of 46.6bhp or above, such as the Ducati Monster 696.

Once the participant has obtained the required standard, all full license training will be conducted on the 696 and will cover all aspects of riding in country and town.

They will be guided by a fully qualified instructor with a bike-to-bike radio link. Upon completing practical motorcycle test successfully, participants can ride any size of Ducati without having to wait for the end of a two-year restriction. Individuals interested in joining the Ducati training can call either the participating Ducati training centre or the dealer that’s authorized for ‘Ducati Rider Training’.

Ducati UK is recognized as a company that is committed to building the greatest motor bikes in the industry but now, it wants to provide training as well as provide a chance for a lucky few to ride some of the most legendary bikes in history. In line with its goal of providing the riders with the latest technology and knowledge of bike riding and also of introducing new brands, Ducati has come up with a great project named “Ducati Rider Training.”

According to Debbie Wiggins, the marketing manager for Ducati UK , the whole team is committed to not only pave the way for the beginners to learn riding but also to introduce the new people and the technology behind the Ducati brand. Therefore anyone who is interested is welcome to join the Ducati Riding Training program. They’re asked to either call any of 13 participating Ducati dealers or training centres, quoting “Ducati Riding Training”. This program is expected to be expanded to more locations next year.

DUCATI UK LAUNCH DUCATI RIDER TRAINING

Ducati today announced a new rider training scheme that will give people a chance to learn to ride on a Ducati.

The ‘Ducati Rider Training’ scheme will see 13 locations across the country with each of these locations consisting of a dealer and training facility partnership.

Each training facility has been carefully chosen for their ability to provide high training standards expected from a Ducati supported scheme. All training facilities will be linked to a franchised Ducati dealership to enable Ducati dealers the ability to offer a full service from training to purchase.

Initially the training will take place at one of authorised training facilities on 125cc motorcycles before moving onto the training school's bigger bikes and then relocating to the Ducati dealership where the training company will progress the rider on to the Ducati Monster 696. All training will be tailor made to an individual’s ability and previous experience and the pricing of each course will reflect this.

Riders over the age of 21 may take their full licence on a bike of 46.6bhp or above (The Ducati Monster 696 is an ideal bike for this). Once they have reached the required standard, all full licence training will be conducted on the 696 and will cover all aspects of riding in both town and country. They will be under the guidance of a fully qualified instructor with a radio link using a bike-to-bike radio. Upon successful completion of the practical motorcycle test they will be able to ride any size Ducati without waiting for the end of a two-year restriction.

To sign up for Ducati rider training, potential riders can call either the participating Ducati dealer or the training centre quoting ‘Ducati Rider Training’.

The ‘Ducati Rider Training’ scheme gives potential motorcyclists a more accessible route not only to rider training but also to the Ducati brand and the chance to learn to ride one of the most iconic bikes of modern times.

Debbie Wiggins, Marketing Manager for Ducati UK commented on the new scheme, 'Ducati UK is committed to introducing new people to not only motorcycling but also the Ducati brand. For many people their ambition is to learn to ride and ride a Ducati. This scheme encompasses both these aspects and makes the dream come true with a simple call to one of the 13 dealer/training facility locations. We hope to expand the number of locations next year once the scheme has been established.’
