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.

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).
