The first Edition of the Ducati Dream Tour was held in association with Helmet Stories in Himachal Pradesh. The ride took place from 26th April – 30th April 2018 and gave Ducati owners a chance to experience the four-day, one of a kind guided excursion where riders not only rode through the hidden backroads of Himachal Pradesh but also experienced different activities at the end of each riding day. Eleven Ducati owners from all over India saddled up on Ducatis which consisted of Multistrada Enduro, Multistrada 1200S and Scramblers and took off from Chandigarh with one-night stop overs at Narkanda, Jibhi and Bir-Billing which was the end point.
The Hidden Himachal Dream Tour took the Ducatisti through scenic twisties and country roads where they experienced everything, from trekking to the highest vantage point to enjoy a spectacular sunset, to riding on trails flocked on either side by breathtaking views, to having supper by the river side while indulging in fishing with the locals, and ending the last leg of the ride, by jumping off a cliff with a parachute at Bir which is regarded by international paragliding groups as the second best site in the world for paragliding.
Sergi Canovas, MD of Ducati India, speaking about the Dream Tour said, “We constantly strive to make the experience of owning a Ducati a special one. Whether it was with the Ducati Financial Services which simplifies the financing process or with the recent launch of Chennai dealership to expand our network, our goal is to keep the customer at the centre and give them an experience which a luxury brand like Ducati is revered for. With the Ducati Dream Tour, our goal is to make that experience even more experiential and rider focussed. We believe that every Ducati rider should experience the Dream Tour once as it’s specifically designed for riders, by riders and unlike other rides, it stands for more than just riding a motorcycle from point A to point B.”
“The Dream Tour organized by Ducati India was meticulously planned with the combination of excellent touring as well as off-road experience. The Multistrada Enduro and the Multistrada 1200 along with Scramblers performed exceptionally well on the ride and I’m sure that the confidence on the brand has scaled up in the eyes of Ducatisti and also the future Ducati owners.” said Dr. Ashutosh Palep, President DOC Mumbai & attendee of the first Ducati Dream Tour.
“Motorcycles can make your life an extraordinary one. For some of us, the most defining moments happen when we throw our leg over the seat of a motorcycle and embark on an extraordinary journey like a Ducati Dream Tour. There’s ample opportunity to connect man, machine and nature while riding on these little known roads of India that provide an indelible structure for the images, sensations and memories that only a motorcycle ride can conjure. We were very happy to plan and lead the first Ducati Dream Tour in India and cannot wait to add more such experiences in the future.” said Harsh Man Rai and Vir Nakai of Team Helmet Stories.
