Martin Rees commented, “The most important thing about our Spring Break Open Day was for staff and visitors to have a great time. We wanted to show we’re not just an exclusive Ducati store, we also like to have fun, get involved, show a bit of self-expression – a bit like the Scrambler brand itself.”

Ducati Glasgow also gave away a VIP Hospitality Ticket to BSB as part of a competition and offered test rides on their Scrambler model range which included: 

  • 1100 Sport
  • Desert Sled
  • 800 Icon 

Bikers interested in this new Scrambler 1100 model can also save up to 34% in-store on clothing and accessories when purchasing a new Scrambler 1100, an offer which was launched at this Spring Break Open Day and will run until 30th June 2018.
