Globally, the third quarter of 2021 was the best in Ducati’s history, with a growth of +3% over the same period of 2020 and +25% compared to 2019. It is commendable how Ducati has stood strong through thick and thin, especially in the last 2 years, and thanks to that, we are ready with yet another year of back-to-back launches.
