Ducati is no longer for sale — will stay with VW

MILAN — Volkswagen Group halted the possible sale of its Ducati motorcycle unit amid persistent opposition from its powerful labor groups, according to an Italian union leader.

“Ducati’s CEO [Claudio Domenicali] told workers Friday that the VW supervisory board decided to halt the sale process,” Bruno Papignani, regional head of FIOM CIGL union, said. “IG Metall sustained and helped Ducati workers in their request to remain inside the VW Group, which should keep investing in our company.”

I’m glad its staying with VW’s Audi luxury division, which lends more assurance that Ducati will remain the Ferrari of motorcycles.
