Ducatimalaysia.com started as a pet project between two malaysian ducatistas. We wanted to have a more personal approach to Ducati owners thus we created this website where owners can do a little shopping, organize trips and events and get news update on their favorite bike brand.
We also felt that what is currently up in Malaysia needs a more personalised touch so here we go. This attempt will take a while so please bear with us

Ducati Monster 821 First Look
11 November 2013 | By ducatinewstoday.com
Ducati adds another water-cooled Monster to its lineup with the debut of the Monster 821. The new Duc sources the 821cc Testastretta 11° Twin, which also powers the Italian marque’s Hypermotard models. Expected in dealers this July, U.S. pricing for the new Monster is set at $10,995.
The new Monster’s liquid-cooled 821 Testastretta 11° engine claims 112 horsepower and 65.9 lb-ft torque. The power stats correspond, roughly, with the 821-powered Hypermotard models (110 horsepower and identical torque) as tested during MotoUSA’s 2013 Hypermotard First Ride. The eight-valve, L-Twin sources Ducati’s desmodromic valve actuation, but if it holds true to the Hypermotard specs, service intervals are now extended to 18,500 miles.

Ducati Superbike Team duo on the podium in race two
7 July 2014 | WorldSBK
The Ducati Superbike Team celebrated its first ‘double podium’ of the season at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal yesterday, when factory riders Davide Giugliano and Chaz Davies crossed the line in second and third place respectively in the afternoon’s second Superbike race.
The last time two Ducati riders took to the podium together was in 2012, at Misano, when Giugliano closed third behind then teammate Carlos Checa, second.
As round 8 draws to a close, Davies is in sixth position in the general standings, with 159 points, while Giugliano follows, seventh, with 140 points. Ducati lies fourth in the manufacturer’s classification with 207 points.
Davide Giugliano: “I’m really pleased. After race one I was confident that I could make a strong second race, also if it were dry, inside the top five at least. After a few problems in warm-up this morning, in race 1 we worked out what we needed to do for race 2 and although that race then turned out to be wet, that turned out to be ok too. You always have to be a bit careful in the wet of course, so I took it easy through the opening laps, it was tough because visibility wasn’t great. Then I started to get into a rhythm and pass a couple of riders. In the final stages I eased off a little, as I didn’t want to make any mistakes. I’m really happy to have closed second, and also very pleased for Ducati, my technicians here at the track but also everyone working back in Borgo Panigale, thanks everyone!”
Chaz Davies:“It really means a lot to get a podium in the wet, something I’ve not achieved before, not in Superbike nor Supersport, and for Davide to be there too is really an important result for Ducati today. Race 1 wasn’t easy, I didn’t feel that the bike was quite right. Things were beginning to improve though, and got interesting right when the incident with Leon took place. It was simply a racing incident, I was slightly wider than usual and he saw the gap and went for it… We’d planned to make changes for race 2 if it had been dry, but in the end those changes worked in the wet. It was going ok in the early stages, I struggled a little before starting to build my pace. After the Aprilias went down, I just put my head down and went after the podium. I really enjoyed the final lap, though I was truly on the limit - it also turned out to be the fastest lap of the race. We will definitely go to Laguna Seca in high spirits now.”
