The new team will be hoping that riders Carlos Checa and Aryton Badovini will be competitive once the season begins.

Putting a Ducati into a music video is always a good idea and choosing a 1974 Ducati 750SS is a great one.

Ducati’s massive World Ducati Week 2012 got under way yesterday with thousands of riders from all over the world arriving at the Italian manufacturer’s mega-event at the Misano World Circuit in Misano Adriatico. Carlos Checa got a chance to test the World Superbike spec Ducati 1199 Panigale.
