Ducati plans to ‘Made In India’


Ducati recently were in talks with the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) for procuring 100 acres of land in the Greater Noida region for setting up of a plant.

TOI reported that Ducati India’s management met with senior officials of GNIDA to get 100 acres of land in the area for a manufacturing unit. GNIDA provided Ducati with the rate list and availability of land. Later this month, the Italian manufacturer will make a formal proposal. This probably being the first meeting, there will be some time before a decision will be arrived at.

This shows the interest that Ducati have in the Indian market. That they are ready to setup a manufacturing/ assembly plant in India. Last year Ducati had launched the Scrambler Sixty9, a 400cc Scrambler, though the company has shown no inclination of bringing that bike in India just yet. A move such as this, might make it possible for Ducati to manufacture and assemble bikes in India on the entry level of their range.
