Ducati has successfully concluded its Dream Tour to Spiti Valley, in association with Shell Advance, GoPro and Pirelli. The seven-day riding excursion took place from 26th August – 2nd September and saw participation from over 16 Ducatisti from across the world. The Dream Tour consisted of the entire Multistrada range which included the Multistrada 950 Spoked Wheels, Multistrada 1260S, Pikes Peak and the all-new 1260 Enduro. The ride was flagged off from Ducati North Star in Gurgaon with stops in Shimla, Sangla, Tabo, Kaza, Nako and Theog.
Ducati had also partnered with Oberoi Hotels & Resorts for the accommodation of the Dream Tour participants. As per Ducati, the difference between the DRE Dream Tour and any other ride is the exclusively designed experiences at the end of each riding day, making it a riding vacation.
The Ducatisti on this ride got a chance to explore Buddhist monasteries, hidden meditation caves, relaxed around the scenic riverside and immersed themselves in the local culture of the Spiti. The trip also included a guided tour of the monasteries, camping under the glittery stars, amidst the snowcapped mountains along with specially designed food experiences each night.
Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “This Dream Tour to Spiti Valley was truly an incredible one and enabled the riders to enhance their skills while riding on world’s most adventurous route. Riding with the Ducatisti through uneven mountain terrains to some of the highest peaks was one of the most spectacular experiences of my life. With every new Dream Tour, we strive to take the Ducati riding culture to the next level and provide a unique experience to our customers which goes beyond just riding.”
Amit Sadh, Bollywood celebrity and Ducati owner, “This tour to Spiti Valley was full of adventure and adrenaline and I could not think of a better travel companion than the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak. Its an extremely versatile motorcycle which made this journey even more special. This was my first Dream tour with Ducati and I can’t wait to ride again with the Ducati family.”
Nicola Antonelli, Riding Experience Manager of Ducati Motor Holding, “It’s a proud feeling for us at Ducati to witness the growing interest of Ducatisti in India towards experiential rides like the DRE Dream Tour. These rides are specially designed by a team of skilled professional riders to ensure a safe riding experience and environment for all riders. India has always been on the top of my bucket-list, it’s a beautiful country with truly diverse landscapes and I’m glad to have witnessed it with a whole bunch of Ducati lovers in the most unique way possible.”
