The six-month period was up 12 percent over the same period of 2014.

”This record is the result of the hard work and dedication of the entire Ducati organization and our network of dealer partners who strive to deliver the most premium motorcycle ownership experience imaginable to our customers,” said Dominique Cheraki, CEO of Ducati North America.

“This commitment is reflected in the world-class design, technology, performance and quality of our products as well as the premium level of customer service.”
