Over the five-month voyage dedicated to Ducati’s 90th anniversary, Indian globetrotter Vir Nakai, Frenchman Laurent Cochet, Belgian rider Jessica Leyne, Brazilian Eduardo Generali, Australian Steve Fraser and Brit Hugo Wilson all played a leading role. Each one an expert motorcyclist, passionate traveller and, above all, skilled storyteller.

Day after day on the blog, they kept an on-board diary, telling the many Ducati fans exactly what was happening during their exciting adventure. Stage after stage, the seven globetrotters passed on the special torch, the symbolic baton created by the Ducati Design Center and equipped with an inbuilt camera to allow for every emotion experienced during the trip to be filmed and shared.

From Bologna to Scandinavia, then to Russia and across the legendary Trans-Siberian Highway, to Japan, the USA and back across Europe, before the torch and Multistrada 1200 Enduro finally returned home, having visited all those symbolic places that have played a part in Ducati history.

The seventh and final globetrotter was German Timo Schafer, a mechanical engineering student who left from the Isle of Man on December 2nd. He traveled on the Multistrada 1200 Adventure first to Maidstone, then crossed to channel to France from where he continued through Belgium and a good part of Germany, with temperatures that were constantly below zero.

Timo then reached Bavaria, where he attended the “More Than Red - Passione Ducati” exhibition after which he crossed the Alps back to Italy reaching the Monza racetrack. The Multistrada then reached Florence to meet with living legend Giuliano Maoggi after which he crossed the Futa pass and finally reached Borgo Panigale, concluding the Globetrotter 90th.
