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
