The main automotive belt on Leng Kee Road in Singapore has just welcomed a new two-wheeled star to its ranks – that of fabled Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati. The new 280sqm space, comprising showroom and workshop areas, joins Wearnes Automotive’s other premium brand dealerships (Jaguar, Land Rover, Bentley, Aston Martin and Infiniti).
The opening of the showroom also marks the multi-brand dealer’s first step into motorcycle retail in Singapore as it takes over the reins from former dealer, Minerva Motor.
It will also afford Ducati some visibility on Singapore’s “car street", relocating from its previous home in Kaki Bukit.
Gracing the opening day was the Ducati racing team’s MotoGP rider, Jorge Lorenzo as the guest of honour alongside the manufacturer’s regional director, Marco Biondi. But of most interest to Ducati fans will be how Ducati’s new home will also be graced by the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, a thinly disguised race bike that packs 209bhp.
