Do you have a Ducati Superbike you’d like to show off? Has that 1979 900SS you keep in perfect shape not been out on the road in awhile? Pull it out, polish it up and enter it in the Ducati Superbike Concorso, just like Chris Brown of New Mexico, owner of the beautiful 900SS you see here did last year.

 

900-3 

 

Ducati North America is pleased to announce the return of the Superbike Concorso, a competition celebrating over 30 years of the Bologna manufacturer's Superbikes.

Now in its second year, the Superbike Concorso is a Ducatisti-driven competition showcasing exceptional Superbikes. Competing bikes span from the era of the original 1970's Supersports to the modern age of Desmodromic domination, including Casey Stoner's World Championship victory on the Desmosedici Grand Prix machine.

This year's Concorso is open to all privately-owned 1972-2008 Ducati Superbikes, including the revolutionary Desmosedici RR and the new Ducati 848 Superbike. The Concorso recognizes performance, history, beauty, and craftsmanship, all carefully judged by a panel of esteemed motorcycle authorities.

The 2008 Superbike Concorso is a five round competition, four rounds of which will coincide with major American motorcycle races. The fifth round will be a virtual showdown held at www.ducatisuperbikeconcorso.com.

A Grand Prize will be awarded to the "Overall Best Superbike" at each of the five rounds with the winners receiving an once-in-a-lifetime trip to Ducati's Bologna factory. Winners in other categories will receive $500 Ducati Performance gift certificates redeemable at over 160 authorized Ducati Dealerships.

The Superbike Concorso kicks off March 5th - 8th at Daytona Bike Week and will continue through the inaugural Indianapolis Grand Prix in September. Get more details and sign up now at www.ducatisuperbikeconcorso.com.
