Companies Attending and Bikes to Test Ride

Ducati


Ducati will be on site with over 35 bikes for you to try out both off-road and on road. The company are also sending over a crack riding and instruction team from Italy for the event. That’s a big commitment and undertaking.

Ducati will be setting up their own off-road circuit at the festival site and the road rides will explore the excellent tarmac to be found in the surrounding Oxford/Warwickshire/Northants countryside.

You can book your off-road and on road test rides at the Ducati stand.

Test bikes include the Multistrada Enduro for the off-road course, and the Multistrada 950 and Multistrada 1260 for on road.

Ducati are also bringing a coffee stand all the way from Italy.
