2012 World Ducati Week

The seventh edition of World Ducati Week once again attracted Ducatisti from around the world, the 2012 edition turning the Misano circuit in Italy into a “The Planet of Champions” June 21-24.

Many of the world’s most famed Ducati riders were at the event, including the current MotoGP duo of Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden, World Superbike riders Carlos Checa, Davide Giugliano, Sylvain Guintoli and Jakub Smrz, along with a Ducati icon, Troy Bayliss.

Around 60,000 people participated in the three-day event on the Adriatic Riviera, enjoying not only Ducati’s racing personalities, unique Ducati-based events and loads of Ducati machines on display, including the 1199 Panigale, but also music from the Ducati All Stars.

This band features many world-famous music stars, including Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) Franky Perez (Pusher Jones) Steve Stevens (Billy Idol band), Billy Morrison (The Cult) and Isaac Carpenter (Loaded).
