Get ready to pour peanut sauce on your as Bologna Bullets destined for the Asian markets will be produced in Ducati’s newly factory in Thailand. Being a “final assembly” plant, the is similar to the one that Harley-Davidson late last year, the Bar Shield brand setup an plant in India in order to the extremely high tariffs the puts on foreign-made motorcycles.

In addition to Harley-Davidson, Ducati be joining the likes of Honda. KTM. and Brembo , all of have increased their the Asian markets within the year to capitalize on the growing of India, China, and Southeast

It comes with little that Ducati’s union is worried about the move, could be a precursor for its jobs shipped overseas. Like the we saw from Harley-Davidson’s workforce certain media outlets), the by Ducati would incorrectly be as an outsourcing of Italian jobs to as Ducati has already made it that the bikes produced in will only be sold in the Asian markets.

The situation currently facing outside of these markets is fact that extremely tariffs (up to 40% in some cases) prevent a number of units, produced in case in Italy, to be sold in the Asian markets. To fix that and to serve these growing companies create local factories that meet standards, and are thus not taxed so The result is cheaper prices on the being sold in these purely from the tax break let alone expense being on the labor costs, which spurs more sales in countries (when you’re a price half of what it was, these extra boosts are often massive).

Going back to the union’s the only production that is taken away from the factory, is those bikes would have originally shipped to Southeast Asian Also since Ducati’s new is a final assembly plant, some of the manufacturing process for countries would still in Italy. However considering Ducati’s own Bologna factory is a final assembly plant (Ducati contracts most of its to other companies, and primarily builds the frame and motor it is not clear what differentiates final assembly plant the Bologna HQ (we’ve reached out to on this one, and are waiting for

a response).

While the sky might not be falling as have declared, there is at a moderately reasonable concern for Italian factory workforce, as it is not for Ducati to realize the advantages of motorcycles in Thailand down the especially once the Italian has established a stable and trained in its final assembly plant. Of this is an issue that always loom over a workforce that has high costs. Let us know in the comments if buy a Ducati made in Thailand?.
