Fabrizio Cazzoli, Managing Director, Ducati UK
“Ducati UK is delighted to see the expansion of Ducati in Scotland as this is an important market for us. To be able to announce the event which is being organised by our newest dealer Ducati Dundee is exciting. I will be there for the event and I am looking forward to seeing Ducati Dundee’s new store and also being able to meet and talk to our Scottish customers”

“Since acquiring Ducati Glasgow in 2021, it was apparent Scotland required a second store to serve the East of Scotland and provide the ability to supply further outstanding customer service and care we pride ourselves on. We quickly decided to invest in a second store and share our passion for Ducati to a wider audience in Scotland to make Ducati more accessible. I’m extremely proud of the team in Scotland for creating such a fantastic store.”
