Ducati has been giving opportunities to motorcycle enthusiasts to learn and hone their motorcycling skills ever since it established the Ducati Riding Academy back in 2003. Over the decade and more, this Academy has allowed more than 10,000 motorcyclists from all over the world to improve their riding abilities. For 2019, Ducati has tweaked the courses of the Academy a bit so that every kind of rider can join based on his/her riding expertise.
Ducati Riding Academy programs
DRE Road Academy
The big change for the 2019 season is DRE Road Academy. This DRE course is designed for novices and expert riders alike. The courses will be held at the Modena racetrack and will give participants the chance to put the new models in the Ducati range through their paces while ensuring they take their riding skills to the next level. DRE Racetrack offers a steep learning curve and plenty of fun and excitement on the most beautiful, highest-performing bikes in the Ducati Superbike range.
DRE Racetrack Courses
There are 4 courses which are further sub-divided according to participants’ abilities and requirements. Track warm-up is for those who have never ridden on a track yet but are eager to take the so-called “baptism of speed”. Then there are Track Evo and Track Master courses for those who already have a certain experience and want to improve their ride technique and lap times even further. And the last one is Champs Academy.
DRE Enduro Academy
If you are more into off-roading, then the DRE Enduro Academy will be the best program for you. You will be provided a Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro and Multistrada 950 and will be taught enduro riding. Participants will learn a swath of off-road techniques and tricks, all under controlled conditions and supervised by expert and qualified instructors.
DRE Travel Experiences
For 2019, Ducati Riding Academy has also revamped its DRE Travel Experiences program. There are new routes and activities which have been added to the courses thanks to a fresh partnership with world-renowned tour operator Boscolo. The Dream Tour is an electrifying 5-day ride on your favorite Ducati through the stunning switchbacks and hills of the Tuscany-Emilia Apennines. The Adventure Tour is pure enthusiasm and enjoyment, a unique 4-day fun-filled ride experience in the midst of nature on the new Multistrada 1260 Enduro and Multistrada 950.
Ducati Riding Academy is a great tool for a variety of people. It doesn’t matter whether you have been riding for years or are new or never ever have stepped on to a motorcycle. This Academy would spoon feed you with every basic technique that would make you a better rider as a whole irrespective of the course you pick.
