After looking at BMW and Harley-Davidson print & billboard advertisements, it's time to have a look at the Italian prime motorcycle maker, Ducati. Often compared to Ferrari, Ducati have a way of showing off their motorcycles (there's even one ad where the comparison is direct).
Here are 17 ads I've found for Ducati. The country is not necessarily the country where the ad ran, but of the PR agency that made the ad.
NOTE: The photos below can be increased in size. If you see a small magnifying glass () at the bottom of the photo, click on it or on the photo, for a small window to open with the full size photo. I have not tested it on all browses with this software, so it might do some strange things..... (PS for some reason the Ducati Clock photo opens strangely, but you can resize the window).
You will also find, where possible, the ad copy text below the photo.
