Ducati sells 33,265 motorcycles in H1 2022, turnover up 54% to 542 million euros

Ducati delivered a strong first half of CY2022, despite the challenges imposed by the current supply and logistics crisis. Between January and June 2022, the Italian bikemaker’s revenue increased by 5.4%, from 514 to 542 million euros (Rs 4,410 crore). This is the highest figure ever recorded by the motorcycle manufacturer in the first six months of the year.

Operating profit also improved and marked an increase of +14.8%, rising from 59 to 68 million euros (Rs 553 crore) compared to the same period in 2021.

The Bologna-based company delivered a total of 33,265 motorcycles to enthusiast customers, containing a loss of deliveries of -3.6% compared to the same period in 2021 (34,515). This result was achieved thanks to “great flexibility, constant dialogue with the partners and the union, despite the difficulties linked to the supply crisis”.

Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati, said: “2021 has been a record year for Ducati with the best result ever in terms of deliveries, revenue and operating profit. 2022 is proving to be a more difficult year: despite strong demand from enthusiasts, as evidenced by the order portfolio which at the end of the first half is up +86% compared to the same period of 2021, the strong discontinuity in the world of logistics and supply remains. However, we have managed to obtain satisfactory results given the context in which we are operating, particularly in terms of turnover, which is the best ever recorded during of the first six months of the year. Once again, I thank all the enthusiasts who continue to choose us, and I personally apologize to all those who have had or will have to wait longer than necessary to receive their bike.”
