Ducati has announced a record revenue for the company in 2022, as it surpassed one billion euros for the first time.

2022 was already confirmed as a record-breaking year for Ducati, as it made its own history with best-ever performances in terms of motorcycles sold globally, as well as on the race track, where it won the WorldSBK and MotoGP titles in the same year for the first time in its history.

Ducati’s latest record announcement is of the company achieving over €1 billion in revenue in 2022, which marks a first for the Italian manufacturer. Specifically, Ducati accrued €1,089 million in 2022. In comparison, in 2021 Ducati’s revenue was €878 million, so in 2022 the Bologna brand achieved a 24% increase in revenue.

In operating profits, Ducati also improved year-on-year in 2022, rising 77% from €61 million in 2021 to €109 million in 2022. 

Claudio Domenicali, CEO Ducati: "For the first time in our history, we passed the 60,000-bikes mark and we overtook 1 billion euros in revenue. This establishes 2022 as the best year ever for Ducati in several aspects, starting from the great sales and financial performance to the successes in MotoGP and WorldSBK. 

“We are on a positive trend that in the last years has seen Ducati grow and establish itself as an increasingly solid company. As a brand that is an expression of Made in Italy, innovation, design and technology, we keep our focus on delivering exciting experiences on and off motorcycles to passionate Ducatisti all over the world."

Henning Jens, CFO Ducati:  "I am glad that for the second year in a row we are able to announce a record financial performance and a growth in the profitability level for Ducati.

“Reaching such results despite the supply chain disruption that has heavily affected the automotive sector during the course of 2022 is a remarkable achievement of the whole Ducati Group. We were also able to pursue the self-financed investments plan in R&D, infrastructures and digitalization that was in our agenda for 2022."

Ducati’s strong 2022 comes as it is set to begin its transition towards zero-emission motorcycles in 2023, when it will take part in the MotoE World Championship for the first time as the sole motorcycle supplier. Ducati’s target with its MotoE project is to develop its electric technology so that it can eventually be placed into a road-going electric motorcycle.

Further, Ducati is expected to arrive in the world of motocross in the next two years, both in the US and in the World Championship. 

As for now, Ducati's 2023 range is complete with the kind of exclusive, high-performance motorcycles the brand has become known for, especially in more recent times, including the 2023 Ducati Monster SP, Ducati Streetfighter V4S, and the new-for-2023 Ducati Multistrada V4 Rally.
