Ducati Video

Click video to re-live all the excitement and action from the 14th Annual Ducati Island event from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on July 23-25, 2010 at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.

This immense Ducati celebration attracted thousands of motorcyclists and MotoGP fans from all over world. Once again it was a great place to spend time and immerse in the Ducati experience.

Ducati Island at the US GP again featured special exhibits, partner vendors, autograph sessions, the legendary Ducati Fashion Show, Ducati Museum and much more.

As always, Ducati owners who provided current Ducati registration or proof of insurance received the special Ducati treatment, such as motorcycle parking, gear check and hospitality.

The Ducati Café was in full effect pumping out gallons of cappuccino and Americano coffee and a silent auction with official autographed Ducati MotoGP Team gear, actual Moto GP bike parts and many other unique items benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Ducati showed-off the latest motorcycles, including the new Multistrada 1200 S and the early release 2011 Monster 796. We parked our long-term Ultimate Motorcycling Multistrada 1200 (non-S) on the island and was the only example on hand.

Other technical partners such as NCR showed off the amazing $265,000 Ducati Desmosedici powered NCR M16 utilizing the latest carbon fiber and titanium to create a clean and flowing motorcycle packed with over 200 hp.

Nicky Hayden was again a hit with all Ducati race fans and Casey Stoner stopped by to also sign some autographs.
