On having a glance over the graph of Ducati's retailings last year, it is estimated that around 54,800 units were being sold by the company, which enhanced up the sales figures by 21.5%. The Italian firm has disposed off 10000 more machines in 2015 as compared to that of 2014. By the introduction of three new segments this year in the category of below 500cc, cruiser and off-road motorcycles (Scrambler Sixty2, XDiavel and Multistrada), it seems like this subsidiary of Audi Group have some solid plans to grow its market rapidly. As of now, the manufacturer has got beyond 720 dealerships spread in over 90 countries.
Watching this drastic growth of the company, Claudio Domenicali, CEO Ducati, spoke, "In the course of this past financial year, Ducati demonstrated the effectiveness of the strategy followed in the past three years, based on investment in product, quality and customers. This growth is reflected not only by volumes but by all the main financial indicators and shows how the company today is solid and well prepared for future challenges." André Stoffels, CFO, Ducati, further added, "Key financials confirm that Ducati's growth is on a consistently upward curve. We maintain our high investment level and increase significantly our positive net cash flow."
Apart from this rapid growth worldwide, Ducati is emphasizing more towards the Indian two-wheeler market. Just a couple of days before at India Bike Week, the company has launched the 959 Panigale at INR 14.04 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). Besides, there was also a showcase of Hyperstrada, Scrambler, Multistrada and Diavel. Moreover, to boost up the craze of Ducati motorcycles in the minds of Indian bike enthusiasts, the manufacturer is also planning to initiate a riding school and owners' group in the country.
