I believe in many cases it is a similar ownership target profile. It would allow for expanded uses of Ferrari technology. You could also sell them through the same network of dealers and the sales would be completely incremental.

P.S. If they did I might even learn how to ride a bike.

they shouldn't build one, they don't have the experience with it, or the production capacity
and buying Ducati is the only option then, besides they are already nicknamed the Ferrari's amongst bikes, they are close-by (Bologna)
but i can't really see the point of adding that to their portfolio

Maybe a joint venture on the next limited car...an F60 (whatever they decide to name her) and a matching Ducati bike to go with it.

*****WARNING...SARCASM FOLLOWS*****
Or...Ferrari could build a Sport Utility Vehicle to haul a matching Ducati.
*****Sarcasm over*****

I think Ferrari shouldn't buy Ducati, They MUST do this !!!! Ducati is good enought but with Ferrari Xperience in Engine building and Engine lighting, Ducati can become a Ferrari on 2 wheels... I think this will expand Ferrari's bussines & ducati's reputation and performance...

I think they should think about this...

Sorry to say this but...Ducati is already concidered the Ferrari of Motorcycles. And, bike engines are different than car engines buy a long shot so Ferrari's 8 and 12-cylinder experience would not mean much for a 2-cylinder motor.

Still though, a co-op between the two could be an excelent venture for both sides.

It would be interesting to find out how many Ferrari owners also own Ducati bikes.
Not this one - no way would I buy a Ducati.

I mean that Ferrari has a big xperience in building high fiability and rotations (rpm) engines. In Motocycles world it is vital.... and also the VVT (Or how it is named) tech will be also a good novatory... I think... Maybe I'm wrong... :-?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Ferrari helped Cagiva engineer the new motors in the revived MV Agusta motorcycles...

Kinda like Porsche helping Harley-Davidson refine the V-Rod.

That being said, I don't think that Ferrari should to buy Ducati or that there is any need for Ferrari to build its own superbike.

Between the Ducati 999r and the MV Agusta F4 1000, Italy is well covered in the superbike arena.

Interesting question but I have to say Ferrari souldn't build a superbike or buy Ducati. But it would be interesting to see what it would look like.
