Ducati Australia and New Zealand has launched two action-packed customer experiences for 2023, once again offering riders a chance to experience the latest technology from Ducati and get expert tuition from the Ducati Adventure Team. For 2023, Ducatisti will be offered the two-day Ducati Riding Experience (DRE) Adventure Academy, which takes owners and their own Ducati adventure models into an intensive training camp with instructor Nick Selleck, designed to improve riding skills and off-road confidence.
For those riders who would like to test the complete Ducati adventure range, Ducati will once again make available the Ducati Adventure Experience Series. This is a test-ride event where riders can experience the Multistrada V2, Multistrada V4 and DesertX in their natural environment.
Both programmes will be available in both central and northern New South Wales as well as Victoria throughout the first half of the year.
+ About the DRE Adventure Academy (two days): An all-inclusive, intensive adventure ride and training camp, designed to test riders and discover the secrets of the adventuring world – from the right body position and most effective riding techniques, through to how to load bags correctly and repair a damaged tyre on the trail. Divided into two days, the first is dedicated to theoretical explanation and practice drills of technical exercises to gain the right confidence in off-road riding. The second day includes a tour on public roads with both on-road and off- road sections in real world-terrain. This programme, which also includes main meals for guests, is for riders who want to get more out of touring and explore Australia off the beaten path.
Dates and locations: April 16/17: Macedon Ranges, Vic; May 14/15: Hunter Valley, NSW; May 28/29: Byron bay, northern NSW — Priced from RRP$845 including GST
