ducati hopes skills on dirt will rub off on road

Ducati is repeating its dedicated off-road riding school initiative – the DRE Enduro Academy – to help students learn or improve the proper riding techniques and skills under poor grip conditions, thereby increasing their experience and sensitivity translating into safer riding on asphalt.

The academy, held in Tuscany, Italy, will take place over eight dates and the Multistrada 950 will join the fleet of Multistrada 1200 Enduro bikes.

The DRE Enduro Academy courses take place under the leadership of experienced riders and qualified instructors led by ex-Dakar rally rider Beppe Gualini, the technical director of the event.

All the bikes supplied to the DRE Enduro Academy participants are equipped with Ducati Performance components for more extreme use, from the Ducati Performance bull bars by Touratech, to Pirelli Scorpion Rally tyres as well as type-approved Termignoni silencers and more.

Students can hire technical clothing, in collaboration with Arai, Scott, UFO, Spidi and TCX. Technogym is again partner of the DRE Enduro Academy, supporting the physical preparation to react better while riding.

The course will be held in the impressive Nipozzano Castle and its surrounding lands.
