His finishing position wasn't too much better than it was in Qatar, 9th instead of 10th, but Valentino Rossi seemed completely different after the race in Jerez. His disappointment and criticism for Ducati had completely disappeared. "It happens when I can't ride the bike properly, and I start to feel discouraged, but today was different."

Carly Dumps Her Pink Dresses as T-Mobile Aims For an Image Makeover | allthingsD | Duc | Scoop.it
T-Mobile’s Carly is trading in her pink dresses for leather and a Ducati motorcycle.
In new commercials debuting later on, the carrier’s spokeswoman throws her trademark dress on the ground and takes to the open road with the tagline “No More Mr. Nice Girl.”

Likewise, the No. 4 U.S. carrier is looking to change its image. T-Mobile has been losing customers and seen its effort to sell itself to AT&T fall short. With no similar deal on the horizon—and no iPhone on its shelves—T-Mobile is working on its Plan B.
The company plans a broader effort to re-brand itself for the second half of the year....more here: http://allthingsd.com/20120415/carly-dumps-her-pink-dresses-as-t-mobile-aims-for-an-image-makeover/?mod=googlenews

Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden took the chance to put in some demo laps of of Misano on the Ducati 1199 Panigale this weekend, resulting in some fairly epic wheelies. Fittingly, an Audi R8 was also in attendance and Rossi donned his Monster Energy nomex to cruise around in his new parent company’s flagship too.

Preziosi: New Ducati engine set for Laguna Seca | motogp.com | Duc | Scoop.it

In a press conference held at the cancelled Estoril test, Filippo Preziosi, General and Technical Director of Ducati Corse, outlined the team’s testing plans in the quest for improved engine driveability and stated that Laguna Seca could see some big changes to the Desmosedici.

Speaking about Valentino Rossi’s seventh place at last weekend’s Grande Prémio de Portugal Circuito Estoril, he said: "I think the result yesterday is based mainly on the small steps taken between one practice session and the next, keeping the same basic bike set-up and just trying to solve the small problems that you have practice by practice. Of course the result is better than before, but it is not at the level we are expecting, so we know we have to close the gap."...more on the headline link above

AMG officially disavows partnership with Ducati autoblog.com | Duc | Scoop.it
Can't say we didn't see this one coming.

 Hot on the heels of Audi's official announcement that it had acquired the Ducati brand from Investindustrial Group, AMG, the in-house performance arm of German automaker Mercedes-Benz, has ended its "marketing cooperation" with the storied Italian motorcycle brand.

Naturally, Mercedes-Benz doesn't want to sponsor Ducati now that it's been taken over by, in its own words, "a rival car manufacturer." While there had been some speculation that Mercedes or its AMG division might make a bid for Ducati, the automaker claims that was never its intention:
"Our focus lies clearly in developing and producing premium performance cars and we will be concentrating all our energy on this."

Seems pretty cut and dry to us, but if you want to read more, feel free to scroll down for the brief announcement. We have to wonder, though, what will be come of the special-edition Ducati Diavel AMG?

Ducati to be Sold to Audi | Cycle News

Ducati to be Sold to Audi | Cycle News | Duc | Scoop.it

Italian bike maker being acquired by German carmaker.

Ducati, the legendary maker of Italian sport bikes with an unparalleled record of success in World Superbike, will be sold to Volkswagen's Audi unit in a deal valued at about 860 million euros ($1.12 billion), according to various reports in the financial press.

The company, whose majority owner is Investindustrial, a privately held Italian investment firm chaired by Andrea Bonomi, has been on the market for some time. Ducati company principals have said they needed the financial clout of a large industrial concern to remain competitive.

In 2010, Investindustrial listed Ducati's earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization at 71 million euros on revenue of just more than 390 million, a pittance for Germany's most profitable manufacturer with reported revenue of 159 billion euros in 2011. Rather than propping up the bottom line, Ducati is a sexy addition to the now 11-strong automotive group which already includes Porsche, Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Bentley. As a bonus, it gives Volkswagen a company to rival BMW's Motorrad division.

Ducati is one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal motorcycle market. The Italian brand has rebounded more quickly that most from the depths of the financial crisis, hitting new year-over-year sales numbers, especially in the U.S., which has surpassed Italy as the company's largest market....More here: http://www.cyclenews.com/articles/industry-news/2012/04/17/ducati-to-be-sold-to-audi/
