Ducati to ‘Fast Track’ Superbike

SBK Promo

Running through June 15, 2010, Ducati North America has announced its "Fast Track" Superbike promotion, which it calls "a celebration of the Ducati Superbike lineup as purpose-built motorcycles at home on the racetrack." Current racers competing on Ducatis include MotoGP champions Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden, as well as top World Superbike competitors Noriyuki Haga and Michel Fabrizio.

Ducati tells us "this promotion is designed to give new Superbike owners an experience unique to the Ducati brand. Built to the motto: ‘Engineered by the stopwatch, designed by the racetrack,’ Ducati Superbikes are bred to be ridden on the limit."

Ducati has teamed up with World Superbike Champion Doug Polen to include a once in a lifetime experience. With purchase of a new 2009 or 2010 Superbike, Ducati will include a day of racetrack instruction with the legendary champion at one of over a dozen venues.

In order to hit the track with style and comfort, Ducati will include the following to make up the ultimate pit lane setup: A set of tire warmers, a Ducati E-Z up, and two Ducati Quad Chairs.

Doug Polen speaks…

"I am beyond excited to be teaming up with Ducati for this excellent promotion. For the past few years I’ve been mastering the transition from racing bikes to teaching others my secrets, and now it’s time for a new generation of Ducs to start flying!"

Along with this exceptional trackside support, Ducati is also including a gift that can be worn every day–a watch in Ducati livery. The Swiss timepiece is influenced by elements of Ducati design, and will be given to select owners of a Ducati Superbike during the program period. However, the watch is not included with purchase of the 848 "Dark" Superbike and is available only while supplies last.
