Affordability** with TriOptions PCP








In association with Black Horse Ltd, Ducati UK are pleased to offer TriOptions PCP – an affordable** option to ride your new Ducati.

Ducati has constantly reacted to customer needs by not only producing market challenging products but also by making our motorcycles more affordable. This has been done by reducing service costs, extending service intervals and by offering a range of Ducati finance options that make the dream of riding a Ducati a reality – TriOptions, a Personal Contract Purchase Plan.What are the benefits of the TriOptions with Ducati Finance?A  Personal Contract Purchase agreement can offer you lower monthly repayments as a significant proportion of the total amount payable is deferred to the end of the agreement and is payable by an optional final repayment. You agree your Ducati, an initial deposit, how many miles you are likely to ride each year and how long you want the agreement to run for.

The final repayment is based on our predicted value of your Ducati based on this information and is often referred to as the GFV (Guaranteed Future Value).

The deposit and predicted value are deducted from the price of your Ducati and the remaining balance and interest provides you with low fixed monthly repayments.

Flexible choices at the end of the agreement.

  • Part exchange the bike for a new one*** – you can use any equity towards another motorcycle
  • Return the bike to Ducati Finance – If the motorcycle is in good condition and has not exceeded the allowed mileage you will have nothing further to pay.  If the motorcycle has exceeded the allowed mileage a charge for excess mileage will apply.
  • Pay the outstanding finance and own the bike outright.

For those motorcyclists that want to ride the newest Ducati, keep their options open and be able to budget to achieve their motorcycling dream, then TriOptions is a way to make the desirable affordable**.

** Your regular monthly payments are low because it is the nature of a PCP product that a significant proportion of the total amount payable is payable at the end of the contract by one large final repayment.

*** Subject to settlement of your existing agreement; new finance agreements are subject to status.

Credit is subject to status and is only available to UK applicants aged 18 or over. TriOptions PCP is only available through Ducati Finance which is a trading style of  Black Horse Ltd, St. William House, Tresillian Terrace, Cardiff, CF10 5BH.

Troy Bayliss to compete in the American Flat Track Grand National Series 2015

Borgo Panigale (Bologna), 30 April 2015 – Just a few days after Troy Bayliss officially announced he’ll be taking part in the AMA Pro Flat Track 2015 championship, the first picture of the Ducati on which the three-times World Superbike Champion will be returning to the track has been released.

The bike is built around a Ducati twin-cylinder twin-valve air-cooled motorcycle and is specifically set up for oval track racing, being exactly what inspired  the sportiest Ducati Scrambler, the Full Throttle. Like the bike that’ll be ridden by Bayliss, the Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle features low-slung wide bars, dual tailpipes on the right-hand side and race number holders, which on Troy’s bike will be displaying the Aussie’s trademark ‘21’.

Made by the Lloyd Brothers Motorsports team – thanks also to close support from Ducati and sponsorship from long-standing Ducati collector Jim Dillard – Troy Bayliss’ bike boasts a hand-made frame specially built for Flat Track races, a special oval race track suspension set-up, 19-inch wheels and, as per regulations, just one disc brake at the rear.

Flat Track races are a highly popular speciality in the USA. They were first organised at the start of the 20th century and although their popularity peaked in the 1920s they still draw big crowds in America and Australia. They’re held on various sorts of track but in the United States most races take place on 1-mile oval circuits where the speeds reached by the riders make the competitions truly spectacular.

That’s why Troy Bayliss has chosen to compete in the five races of the US Grand National Series that’ll be held on 1-mile tracks. His opening race is scheduled for next 24th May at the legendary Springfield oval in Illinois, where Troy will pair up with teammate Johnny Lewis, an oval track specialist.

Dirt and flat track racing are where I cut my teeth as a junior. Everything I’ve learned on the dirt helped me through my career in track racing and to find myself back where it all started makes me feel young again”, said Bayliss. “I’m really pleased to have this opportunity. I want to have fun; racing in the American Grand National Series will be one heck of a challenge, but I just couldn’t pass up the chance to race on a Ducati with Lloyd Brothers Racing, especially as it means flying the Ducati Scrambler colours. Flat Track racing is on the up and up here in Australia. We’ve run the Troy Bayliss Classic for three years now and mixing it up with Flat Track specialists Henry Wiles, Jared Mees and Sammy Halbert has been great. I’m really looking forward to my time in the US of A and I’m very grateful to Ducati, my Ducati Scrambler brand friends, Ducati North America, Lloyd Brothers Motorsport and Jim Dillard for this awesome opportunity.”

Troy Bayliss is one of the most successful track riders ever. He has notched up an incredible 52 wins in the World Superbike Championship, an unforgettable victory in the Valencia MotoGP in 2006, a pole position in the Daytona 200 in 2000 and a British National Superbike Championship title in 1999, every single success being achieved on a Ducati. Flat Track races are not new to Bayliss: in 2013 in Australia he established the Troy Bayliss Classic, an oval track competition in which participation is by invitation only; since then, in his native Australia, he’s gone up against a host of riders from the AMA Pro Flat Track championship. In 2014 he also won the national Flat Track and Supermoto championships in Australia. Moreover, Troy recently took part in the first two rounds of the SBK 2015 World Championship, replacing an injured Davide Giuliano on the Panigale R of the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team.
