Ducati has successfully concluded its Dream Tour to the Incredible Spiti Valley. The 7-day riding excursion took place from 26th August to September 2nd and attracted over 16 Ducatisti from across the world, who rode across the Himalayas aboard their Ducati Multistrada and Scrambler range of motorcycles. The ride was curated and led by Eaglerider India and was powered by Shell Advance, GoPro and Pirelli tyres.
The Dream Tour consisted of the entire Multistrada family which included the Multistrada 950 Spoked Wheels, Multistrada 1260S, Pikes Peak and the all-new 1260 Enduro. The ride was flagged off from Ducati North Star in Gurgaon with stops in Shimla, Sangla, Tabo, Kaza, Nako and Theog. The Dream Tour allowed Ducatisti to explore the heart of Himalayas and experience the rugged mountains and challenging riding terrain, rich cultural heritage and enchanting valleys through one of the most spectacular motorcycles routes in India.
Ducati had partnered with Oberoi Hotels & Resorts to offer the best in class exquisite luxury experience to the participants of the Dream Tour, with stays at Cecil by Oberoi and the Wildflower, Oberoi in Shimla. The tour also allowed Ducatisti to ride through the narrow stretches of off-road terrains while enjoying the scenic views meandering along the rivers. What differentiates the DRE Dream Tour from any other ride are the exclusively designed experiences at the end of each riding day.
The Ducatisti rode on the world’s most treacherous roads to explore old Buddhist monasteries, hidden meditation caves, relaxed around the scenic riverside and immersed themselves in the local culture of the Spiti. The trip also included a guided tour of the monasteries, camping under the glittery stars, amidst the snowcapped mountains along with specially designed food experiences each night.
Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “This Dream Tour to Spiti Valley was truly an incredible one and enabled the riders to enhance their skills while riding on world’s most adventurous route. Riding with the Ducatisti through uneven mountain terrains to some of the highest peaks was one of the most spectacular experiences of my life. With every new Dream Tour, we strive to take the Ducati riding culture to the next level and provide a unique experience to our customers which goes beyond just riding.”
