Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati has revealed dates for its innovative riding school, the Ducati Riding Experience (DRE). DRE 2011 that will be held at major circuits across Italy caters to riders of all experience levels, from absolute beginner to race-track specialist.
First time riders can opt for the Basic course to learn the essentials of motorcycle riding aboard Ducati Monster 796s. Â More experienced riders who want to further improve their bike control skills will benefit from the Intermediate course, which uses Monster 796, Hypermotard 796 and Hypermotard 1100EVO models in specially prepared course exercises
On the track, the Racing 1 course uses the brand new 848EVO to teach basic track riding-skills to those taking to the track for the first time or who have limited track experience. The course is held exclusively at the Adria Circuit, a perfect place for a track-riding debut.
The Racing 2 course is intended for those who already have some track-riding experience and want to improve their style, technique and speed through professional tuition from highly experienced and accomplished instructors.
The Master course uses the Ducati 1198 SP and is meant for expert riders who want to take their riding to the next level.
2011 also sees the inclusion of the Troy Bayliss Academy, an exclusive course designed to further extend opportunities for highly competent track-day riders aboard the new Ducati 1198 SP. Groups will be restricted to just four lucky riders per day, each riding with, and receiving direct tuition, from the legendary triple World Superbike Champion himself.
DRE course fees range from 350 Euro for the Basic course to 2000 Euro for the Troy Bayliss Academy and include use of motorcycle, tyres, instructor, fuel, lunch and welcome kit. Course registration, which opens on 20 January 2011, is available exclusively on www.ducatiridingexperience.com.
