From 2023 until 2026, Ducati will be the sole motorcycle supplier for the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Championship, which will officially begin on May 13, 2023 at the French Grand Prix.

In December 2022, Ducati inaugurated the new “Finitura e Delibera Estetica” factory which will host the last phase of the production cycle, i.e. the dressing of the motorcycles, a process that the Borgo Panigale company carries out with a sartorial approach and meticulous attention to details. The new building is the result of a major fully self-financed infrastructure investment. Investments in the infrastructure of the Company’s headquarters will also continue over the next few years.®
