Ducati says they will open dealerships with a program of special cleaning, customer distancing, masks and other precautions developed by a special task force, says Ducati spokesman Francesco Milicia.
“It is now clear to everyone that the virus won’t disappear from our lives any time soon,” Francesco says.
“We will have to learn to deal with it, putting in place all possible actions to protect ourselves, allowing us to return to live our lives again.
“It is in this context that, by capitalising on the experiences gathered by our internal Task Force as well as some of our Asian dealers, we have developed the Ducati Cares program to support our dealer network all over the world.
“It will allow our dealers to welcome our customers in the safest and most practical way.”
