The new showroom is spread across 12,000 sq ft and has been set up by EVM Motors at Maradu in Kochi. The dealership is state-of-the-art and has a team of highly qualified and trained service personnel.
Ravi Avalur, managing director of Ducati India, said, “Kerala already has a large number of Ducatisti and we look forward to seeing the community grow. We’ve seen very promising results in south India over the last two years and the opening of the Kochi dealership is strategically aligned to our goals in the region.”
The Italian bike maker has dealerships in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad and Bengaluru and the Kochi dealership is its sixth in India. Ducati has over 20 models on sale which include cruisers, naked motorcycles, superbikes, sports tourers, adventure enduros and the complete Scrambler range. It will also stock Ducati and Scrambler apparel collections and motorcycle accessories.
According to Sabu Johny, managing partner, EVM Motors, “Ducati is one of the most coveted premium motorcycle brands and we are extremely excited to partner with Ducati in India. I’m looking forward to starting the Desmo Owners Club in Kochi. Customers in Kochi can expect the same unprecedented levels of service and ownership experience that Ducati delivers around the world.”
Ducati has plans to launch five new motorcycles in India this year. The current range starts at ₹7,09,000 (ex-showroom, Kochi) for the Scrambler Icon.
