If you’re wondering what to get the rider who has everything for Christmas or a year-end gift, Ducati and its racing division Ducati Corse have got you covered with the Ducati Memorabilia Project. What this is means is you can purchase, for yourself or other significant person in your life, a piece of a Ducati racing motorcycle.

Items include crankshafts, camshafts, pistons and con-rods, all used inside a Desmosedici or Panigale from previous racing seasons. While the cynical might question why such a thing is available for purchase, for the Ducatisti, it represents a piece of racing history.

Cost, on the other hand, might be another issue but as they say, like motorcycle styles, one man’s meat is another man’s unjustifiable, absolute waste of money. Each piece of Ducati Memorabilia is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Ducati chief executive officer Claudio Domenicali and Ducati Corse general manager Gigi Dall’Igna.

Encased in a plexiglass box, each Ducati racing component has a serial number and is clearly marked “For Display Only.” Purchase of Ducati Memorabilia items can be made at the Ducati Store in Borgo Panigale, selected Ducati dealerships and via online purchase at the Ducati website from 2020.

In other news, French MotoGP rider Johann Zarco, who left KTM Red Bull Racing mid-season after dismal results, has signed with Ducati MotoGP satellite team Reale Avintia Racing. Replacing Czech Karel Abraham in the Spanish outfit, Zarco joins Spaniard Tito Rabat.
