Yesterday morning, inside the park of the general command of the Carabinieri, the Ducati motorcycles were presented and officially entered the world of the weapon.
The event took place in the presence of the general commander Tullio Del Sette, of the managing director, Ducati Motor Holding ing. Claudio Domenicali and the heads of the carabinieri general staff.
The Ducati supplied to the Arma are the Multistrada 1200 S and the Multistrada 1200 Enduro.
The new motto of the Casa di Borgo Panigale is to strengthen the service of prompt intervention and control of the territory of the Radiomobili Nuclei of the main Italian cities, for now Rome and Messina, and will already be employed at the G7 of Taormina.
The new models are equipped with an institutional livery and a specific set-up, characterized by a greater power (160 cv) and by a sophisticated on-board electronics (braking management, traction and suspension), while maintaining the traditional touring line / enduro-road.
The new version of the Multibike "Arm version", equipped with state-of-the-art technology solutions, is equipped with special sound and light equipment, with the DC car radio and the Reparto armor.
"Ducati is particularly proud to be able to provide the technology, style and quality of its bikes to the Carabinieri ", commented Claudio Domenicali, managing director of Ducati Motor Holding. "L'Arma will be able to count on the best of advanced two-wheeled Made in Italy technology for the dual touring segment. With its 160 CV the Multistrada is an exceptional vehicle as a combination of performance, essential for the particular uses to which the Arma uses these vehicles, comfort, driveability and load capacity. I really believe that the typical Ducati sportiness, combined with the quality and reliability of our brand, represent an excellent combination for this use. On behalf of the company I represent, and of all the workers, I thank the Carabinieri for the trust and the opportunity to offer our contribution to their precious work, combining two Italian excellences".
"It is reason for great satisfaction and pride", said General Del Sette, "That the Ducati has made available to Arma these jewels of the Italian two-wheeler industry. Both the bike and the House represent Italian excellences internationally recognized, where even the Arma, especially in the recent past, expresses its distinctive character. Tying the name of the Arma dei Carabinieri to the prestigious Ducati brand, with its glorious past of tradition and success, is an event of great historical importance that, I am sure, will give important results already from the next days on the occasion of the G7 Taormina ".
