2014 Ducati Motorcycle News

Germany’s prestigious motorcycle magazine, Motorrad, held its 16th annual “Motorrad des Jahres” (Motorcycle of the Year) event this past Monday.

And at this year’s ceremony held in the Residenztheater in Stuttgart, Germany, Ducati took five awards, including two category wins.

The awards are decided by the magazine’s readers, who voted the Diavel as the “Motorcycle of the Year” in the Cruiser category, and the Multistrada in the All Rounder category.

The Bologna-based motorcycle manufacturer also took three other awards – the Ducati 1199 and 899 Panigale superbikes took second and third, respectively, in the Sportbike category, which was won by the BMW HP4. The Ducati Hypermotard also took third in the “Enduro/Supermoto” category.

Claudio Domenicali, Ducati Motor Holding CEO, accepted the awards at the event. Ducati reports that the awards underline the increasing strength of the famous Italian brand in the German market.

This years winners were decided by 45,707 readers – about 50-percent more than last year. Each year, readers vote on eight categories, and more than half a million have participated in the vote since 1999.
