Ducati’s only manufacturing facility in Asia is in Thailand.

Smashing the rumour mills, Ducati India has issued a statement that they are not planning to join hands with any Indian manufacturer. Ducati operates in India as a direct subsidiary of Ducati Motor Holdings.

The Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 is the smallest product (regarding engine displacement) in their global line-up.

Ducati India was incorporated back in 2014, but dealerships (Mumbai and Delhi) became operational only in March 2015. An official announcement for the same was made only in June 2015. At present, Ducati India has five dealerships in the country and plans to increase it to 10 by the end of this year.

In an official statement, Ducati India said:

We would like to clarify that Ducati currently has no plans to partner with any Indian two-wheeler manufacturers and/or to build small capacity engine motorcycles in India

Ducati India has announced that they will be launching five new motorcycles this year. The Italian motorcycle maker, which is a part of the Volkswagen Group, showcased several new motorcycles at EICMA in November 2016 like the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer, Ducati Monster 797 and Ducati Multistrada 950.
