Ducati UK has appointed fellow Silverstone Park business Spyder Motorcycles as its official ‘UK Ducati Rental and Travel Partner’.
Spyder Motorcycles will now be able to offer an extensive range of Ducati motorcycles for hire to ride in the UK and Europe.
The range will include the latest Diavel 1260, the Multistrada 1260 S and 950, Hypermotard 950 SP, Monster 797 and 1200S and Ducati’s eagerly awaited Streetfighter V4S. The Scrambler range will be represented with the Scrambler 1100 and the new Icon Dark model.
Spyder will also offer Ducati motorcycles for hire and a travel package for this year’s high profile World Ducati Week (17-19 July) at Misano Circuit in Italy.
In addition, motorcycles can be hired from Spyder’s Silverstone Park base, whether for British MotoGP weekend (28-30 August) on the neighbouring Silverstone Circuit or as a starting point for exploring the UK and Europe.
Spyder’s service also includes delivery of rental motorcycles to a chosen location. Furthermore, Ducati self-guided tours in Europe, whether to a MotoGP or a visit to the manufacturer’s global headquarters in Bologna, Italy can be organised.
Spyder Director Mark Smith-Young commented: “Spyder Motorcycles are hugely excited to be official Rental and Travel Partners with Ducati.
“We’ll be building the Ducati fleet over time to offer as many of the stunning range as possible.
“Our aim is to develop self-guide Ducati motorcycle tours around the UK, Ireland and the Isle of Man, to include the best riding roads and scenery we have on this beautiful island.
“We can also provide Ducati tailored fully guided and supported motorcycle tours…”
Silverstone Park is home to other major players in motorcycling, including KTM and its subsidiary Husqvarna whose UK headquarters are in 13,000 sq ft of accommodation in the estate’s Buckingham Road ‘avenue’ of high quality industrial units.
