On behalf of the 80 million Italians worldwide, and myself too, all i can say it is a VERY SAD DAY for a Italian icon to be in foreign hands.

Have modern day Italians no respect and/or honour?

NOT just after a quick buck

Vale ..not the # 46 one.. Ducati, i will now support APRILIA and MVAGUSTA only

Audi deserves their own namesake line of motorcycles. I hope they sell off what ever physical assets Ducati has, cash out what little equity is left and shutter the doors. Use that technology to build their own "German" brand and let Ducati become the new Indian Motorcycles.

@ italian patriot
i agree with you about the sale but where was fiat why didnt there buy or at least bid for ducati , for if fiat had obtained ducati , then ducati would have had access to ferrari tech ,maybe we will see vale on an aprilia in either WSBK or MOTOGP but one think is for sure i just can't see ducati sorting out that bike this season ?

WTF dose VW need Ducati for,is this buying an Icon just because they have the spare cash to do so?
I not a big Ducati fan,but when sh?t like this happens you have to wonder if it will kill the soul and passion at Ducati.
With VW'S involvement,I can't see any benefit.
