Hmmmm......
So what does this mean for the future of Ducati motorcycles and riders? Will Audi continue to build them? Will the fantastic quality and styling still be there?

This is really interesting.

The big question is will I be able to get a discount buying a duc. Since I work for VW I would hope so.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

I bet this will be great. Piech made a lot of good calls in the last few years. Audi will bring Ducati closer to the customer with the VW network.

Now I can yell at the Ducati Dealers in German and they will jump and do what I ask for... LOL

You are correct:



Audi is a brand established out of Auto Union, NSU,... NSU was at some point in History THE BRAND of Motorcyles to own...
