A range of Ducati motorcycles will again be on show at CRC Speedshow, with the hugely popular Italian brand taking a key position among the packed-out exhibition halls at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds.

CRC Speedshow promoter Keith Sharp says he’s delighted Ducati is returning to the show for the third consecutive year.

“We get such great feedback about Ducati – it’s one of those iconic motorcycle brands that CRC Speedshow fans really enjoy seeing and talking about.”

NF Importers, the New Zealand Ducati importer, hasn’t confirmed exact model line-up yet, but have plans well underway for a comprehensive display of the beautiful Italian machines at the 21-22 July show.

Warren Lee, CEO, says: “We’re very excited about returning to CRC Speedshow in 2012 and we look forward to meeting many current owners, fans and of course future owners during the show.

“Certainly the bikes everyone will want to see will be the incredible new 1199 Panigale at the high performance end of our range, while at the other, the Monster 659 ABS produced exclusively for Australia and New Zealand by Ducati for learner riders and the LAM Scheme. Ducati’s presence at CRC Speedshow is supported and made possible by our New Zealand dealer network; our thanks to Bayride Motorcycles, Casbolts, Haldane Motorcycles, Hamilton Motorcycles, Motomart and AB’s Motorcycle Service Centre.”

Lee also confirms that the Ducati team at CRC Speedshow will be run a competition, via iPad, offering CRC Speedshow attendees an opportunity to win fantastic Ducati gear.

Lee adds: “The Ducati brand is very popular and successful throughout New Zealand, so naturally we’re looking forward to being back at CRC Speedshow flying the red Ducati flag high. The show is a great opportunity for everyone to see our range or beautiful models and we’re looking forward to greeting, answering questions as well as providing purchasing information.”

Ducati has successfully exhibited at New Zealand’s CRC Speedshow events previously in 2010 and 2011.
