German firm AUDI--just concluded the purchase of Italian motorcycle maker, Ducati .
I was not aware of HD and Ducati, they did own MV Agusta. When HD had cash flow issues it was sold back to the family that it was purchased from for about 20% of what was paid 4 years earlier.K100Dennis said:So they (Audi - Auto Union) have taken ownership of Ducati from HD Curtis ? As I understood it, HD acquired Ducati about 4 years back, which was interesting at the time as in the '70's HD themselves were bailed out by Aermacchi, an Italian company. Remember some of those 2 stroke trail bikes that sported the Harley Davidson emblem ?
We may see a 5 cylinder all wheel drive HD in the furure.
