If you’re not in line with the news, Ducati is celebrating 90 years of passion and performance through a special project called “Globetrotter 90”, consisting of one new Multistrada 1200 Enduro and seven riders that will take it around the world. The trip is entering stage six now, taking it back to Europe.
Australian Steve Fraser has concluded his trip aboard the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro from America’s Deep South to New York. The “torch” and the bike have returned to Europe, in Lisbon, where they are now in the hands of Hugo Wilson, 54, who will ride to the renowned Isle of Man.

Passionate writer and photograph, Hugo has already traveled the length and breadth of Europe on two wheels. His passion for motorcycles started since he was 10 as he first saw his cousin’s Ducati.

“When I first saw my cousin’s Ducati, it was love at first sight,” recounts the globetrotter. “And when I finally bought my own bike, it was of course red… a Ducati is forever.”

Hugo Wilson will make various stops, each more exciting than the last. He will visit Silverstone, where legendary champion Mike Hailwood rode Ducati motorcycles to achieve two race wins in two different classes on the same day in 1960. The next destination for the globetrotter will be the Donington Park track in the UK, where, on 3 April 1988, the very first World Superbike race took place, won by Marco Lucchinelli on the brand new 851 SBK.

The Multistrada 1200 Enduro, on completing its round-the-world voyage, will be showcased at the Motorcycle Live show in Birmingham. The final destination during this sixth leg of Globetrotter 90th will be the Isle of Man, where Mike Hailwood achieved his greatest ever victory, winning the Tourist Trophy on 2 June 1978 with the Ducati 900 SS TT IOM to the joy of 300,000 spectators, a result that Ducati celebrated with the 900 Mike Hailwood Replica.
