DUCATI NORTH AMERICA DELIVERS THE FIRST 1299 SUPERLEGGERA IN DALLAS
The Company’s Flagship Superbike was Presented at a Gala Event Hosted at Advanced Motorsports (AMS) Ducati Dallas
Cupertino, Calif.

The 1299 Superleggerra is the most technologically advanced motorcycle in the company’s long history of performance motorcycle development and the first production motorcycle to have a full carbon fiber chassis. This special motorcycle was purchased by local Ducatisti, Michael Nadeau, of Dallas, Texas.
Key members of the Texas business community, along with local VIPs and motorcycle enthusiasts gathered for an intimate reception to witness the first North American customer-delivery of the 1299 Superleggera. Ducati North America also streamed the unveiling on Facebook Live with thousands of viewers.

You never lose confidence in a Ducati. Having spent countless track hours on the previous Superleggera, I can’t wait to experience the new 1299 Superleggera.”
Nadeau is an entrepreneur in Dallas, who founded the successful health management company, Viverae. He owns six Ducati superbikes…
