Ducati has appointed Rodeo Drive as official South African importer for the iconic Italian motorcycles.

At this stage there is only one dealership in South Africa - at 190 Bram Fischer Drive in Randburg - but the company is planning to open a Cape Town branch later in 2014 and, in the meantime, is offering free delivery to Cape buyers, as well as a free pick-up and drop-off service for bikes being serviced.


The full range of Ducati motorcycles is now on display at Bram Fischer Drive, including the Monster, Multistrada, Streetfighter, Hypermotard, Diavel and the 899 and 1199 Panigale Superbikes.

Johnny Araujo, brand manager for the new Ducati venture in South Africa, offers a three-year or 90 000km warranty and full maintenance plan with each new bike, and there's a wide range of Ducati accessories and apparel also available.
