Bring your clear visor as the Ducati Riding Experience will include floodlit riding sessions!
This month you could be riding one of the world’s best bikes at one of the world’s best circuits – Ducati’s 1199 Panigale S at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi – if you’ve got a spare £1272 ($2000US) plus flights and hotels laying around!

Okay, so it’s a hell of a lot of money, but if you’ve got that kind of cash, then this is one hell of an experience.

The Ducati Riding Experience returns to the circuit from February 24-25 this month and gives riders the chance to learn their craft on one of the best-handling bikes ever made. Not only that but you can also ride the bike under the floodlights, so pack a clear visor!

I’ve done the Ducati Riding Experience myself a few years ago at Mugello and it was one of the best riding experiences of my life, so I can only imagine what it would be like at Yas Marina, the same place Ducati chose to host the world press launch of the bike. 

For all booking details, including course price and special rates for the 5-star Yas Viceroy Hotel above the circuit, visit the “Experience” section of Ducati.com or write directly to info@ducati.ae .
