    dayum!!!

    does it have to do anything with the EU regulations for emissions, summin' like 30% of vehicles manufactured should give better than 30mpg or summin' like that?

    No kidding. I can imagine the benefits of having a giant like M-B behind you. Maybe the Italians need this to stay alive...or pay for the yachts and mansions that they need.

    I think ducati is doing fine financially compared to other manufactureres.

    The 1098 series was a huge seller, hypermotard same and now dealers can't stock enough multis. Not to mention selling out on desmos in the middle. Id say compared to 5 years ago they are in a much better place.

    If Mercedes does for Duc what they did to Dodge, please let this be a hoax.

    This thread is like a game of broken telephone. The press release is for a marketing cooperation and the thread makes it seem like ducatis will now gave 4 wheels.

    At this point it's nothing more than a joint marketing agreement. I wouldn't place any bets today that Ducati will owned by Benz. These sort of plans fizzle as often as they flower...
