Ducati India was finally incorporated as a wholly owned subsidiary of Ducati Motor Holdings in June last year. The long wait continued for nearly a year when AMP Superbikes opened its doors for the public on March 15, 2015 in Gurgaon and Delhi. The Mumbai dealership was then added to the family on March 31, 2015. The company however waited till 19th June to finally hold its first official press conference.
