The Italian bike maker Ducati is on search for a partner in India for making small capacity engines for the global market which includes India. Ducati is on course to following the footsteps of other European manufacturers like KTM who have tied up with Bajaj and BMW who have TVS as their partner in India.
Ducati plans to do so as the smaller-sized engine segment is growing on a large scale all over the globe. Ducati is considering Hero MotoCorp and Royal Enfield for their partnership plans. These plans are just in the beginning phase and still a long way from being implemented.
Ducati currently sells bikes that use engines which range between 800cc to 1200cc. If Ducati plans to go ahead with this plan, we can very soon be able to see a smaller capacity Ducati bike which will be available under Rs 4 lakh. Soon the dream of owning a Ducati might just become a reality.
Ducati currently uses Thailand as its hub for exporting their bikes which range from Rs 7 lakh to Rs 1.12 crore. The automaker sold 580 units in India last year.
