Ducati ANZ has launched two new action-packed experiences for 2023, once again offering riders a chance to take-in the latest motorcycle technology and get expert tuition from the brand’s adventure team.
This year, Ducati owners will be offered the two-day Ducati Riding Experience (DRE) Adventure Academy, which takes owners and their own Ducati adventure models into an intensive training camp with instructor Nick Selleck.
Designed to improve riding skills and off-road confidence, the all-inclusive event will test riders and help them discover the secrets of the adventuring world – from the right body position and most effective riding techniques, to how to load bags correctly.
Divided into two days, the first is dedicated to theoretical explanation and practice drills of technical exercises to gain the right confidence in off-road riding. The second day includes a tour on public roads with both on-road and off- road sections in real world-terrain.
This programme, which also includes main meals for guests, is for riders who want to get more out of touring and explore Australia off the beaten path. Priced at $845, you can choose from three dates.
These include 16-17 April in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria, the NSW Hunter Valley on May 14 and 15, or Byron Bay in Northern NSW on May 28 and 29.
For those riders who would like to test the complete Ducati adventure range, there’s the Adventure Experience Series. This is a test-ride event where riders can experience the Multistrada V2, Multistrada V4 and DesertX in their natural environment.
The two-hour test-ride programme includes an in-depth, expert talk on the features and benefits of each model followed by a ride experience of approximately 45 minutes duration. It’s offered on the same dates as the Adventure Academy.
Priced from $40 for up to two sessions per person, you can book online at https://www.ducati.com/au/en/adventure-experience-series
