Ducati fans rejoice.  The Italian manufacturer is once again opening its factory to tours starting on October 11, 2021.  For €17, you can once again experience the Ducati motorcycle factory in Borgo Panigale.  Ducati calls the tour its “Borgo Panigale Experience.”

Fans of Ducati’s machines once again have the opportunity to tour the factory while it is working.  You won’t just see a shut down production line.  On the resurrected tour, you can experience the build of Ducati motorcycles from beginning to end.  In addition, an expert in the production of the Italian made bikes will accompany you on the tour.

You can experience both the Ducati factory in the museum during the Borgo Panigale Experience.

Borgo Panigale Experience

The Borgo Panigale factory hosts the production of its well-know series of machines.  Today, the Borgo Panigale production facility produces the Diavel, Hypermotard, Monster, Multistrada, Superbike and SuperSport machines.

According to the Ducati Borgo Panigale Experience webpage:

“You will be accompanied during the factory tour by one of our guides who will show you where and how our bikes are conceived; you will pass through the mechanical processing department (where the timing systems and crankshafts are prepared in continuous cycle), the engine assembly area (where the new V4 engine assembly line is located), and then on to the vehicle assembly lines up to the testing and shipping area.”

Tour requirements

If you are interested on taking a Ducati factory tour, you must book your reservations online via Ducati’s dedicated platform.  Tours are available on Monday and Friday at three different times.  You can choose from one morning time slot (09:15) and two timeslots in the afternoon (14:30 and 15:00).

Part of the factory tour includes the engine assembly unit.

To take a tour, you will also need a valid EU Digital COVID Certificate.  It’s not yet clear what the requirements are for people from outside the EU.  There are exceptions to the COVID certificate for children under 12 years of age and people whose health will not allow it.

If you’d like to combine your factory tour with entry into the Ducati museum, you can combine both for €32.  You can also book a solo museum ticket for €17.  Once again, to book, you should use Ducati’s dedicated online platform.
