The Ducati Superbike Concorso returns

Keith Hale’s lovely 100,000+ mile 1974 Ducati 750 Super Sport is just one of
many great Ducatis entered in the Online Round of the Ducati Superbike Concorso.

After a great showing in its’ first year, the Ducati’s Superbike Concorso is back for another year. Consisting of five rounds of shows, each has a Grand prize trip to Italy to visit the Ducati factory and the Milan Motorcycle show as VIP guests, along with six other runner up prizes, the Concorso is both a gorgeous showing of great Ducati machinery from the past and present, and a chance for Ducatisti to compete for the trip of a lifetime.

Round three is this coming weekend, August 1-3, at Mid-Ohio in Lexington, Ohio. Round four will be at the MotoGP races in Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 12-14.

The Online Round is ongoing, and you can visit and vote by going  here. If you have a Ducati superbike you’d like to enter, go here.

Ducati Superbike Concorso Returns for 2008

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.

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.
