The Indian arm of Italian bikemaker, Ducati successfully concluded its first Independence Day Ride in India organized in collaboration with Lotus Petal foundation. The motoring event witnessed over 350 Ducatisti come together from across the Ducati dealer network to celebrate the spirit of Independence and supported the cause of providing education and life of dignity for the children living in the slums.
It gave kids supported by the Lotus Petal foundation and its founding members a chance to speak to the Ducatisti. The kids interacted with the Ducatisti at the Ducati Gurgaon showroom and they also flagged off the ride which passed through one of India’s most iconic heritage buildings, India gate. They also rode through Delhi roads before culminating in Gurgaon.
Sergi Canovas, MD of Ducati India, said “It’s a proud moment for Ducati, to have organized a first-of-its-kind Independence Day ride in the country, in association with the Lotus Petal Foundation. The Ducati family came out in great numbers to show their support to the cause and help raise awareness to transform the lives of the underprivileged. The participation from Ducatistis was a testimony to the brand and the motorcycle community giving a perfect platform for riders to come together to pledge independence from everything that’s holding these children back from achieving their aspirations.”
The rides began early morning at 7 am from the Ducati dealerships across Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata & Chennai and the Independence Day ended on a positive note with the spirit of independence truly and aptly celebrated by Ducati India and its motorcycle community.
