Ducati UK sold 2,345 motorcycles in 2011, achieving its best-ever sales figure since 2003. Moreover, the company recorded its best-ever market share statistic in the United Kingdom. The company also became the fastest growing Motorcycle brand in the nation, with motorcycle sales increasing by 15.3 percent. Sales were evenly spread through its product lineup with Superbike, Monster, Diavel and Multistrada sharing equal slices.

Other noteworthy events include launch of the 848 Challenge to the British Superbike Championship and the "Ducati Days" track event at Silverstone, which showcases the first public use of the new Silverstone Wing.
