Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. (Italian pronunciation: [duˈkaːti]) is the motorcycle production division of the Italian company Ducati, based in Bologna, Italy. The company is owned by the German automaker Audi through its Italian subsidiary Lamborghini, and Audi itself is owned by the Volkswagen Group.

In 1926, Antonio Cavalieri Ducati and his three sons Adriano, Marcello, and Bruno Cavalieri Ducati founded Società Scientifica Radio Brevetti Ducati in Bologna to manufacture vacuum tubes, capacitors, and other radio components. In 1935 they became successful enough to build a new factory in the Borgo Panigale area. Production continued during World War II, although the Ducati plant was repeatedly target of Allied bombing. On Thursday, October 12, 1944, it was finally destroyed by about 40 consolidated B-24 fighters as part of the US Air Force combat. About 700 planes take off from the airports in the province of Foggia.


Meanwhile, in a small Turinese company SIATA (Societa Italiana per Applicazioni Tecniche Auto-Aviatorie), Aldo Farinelli began developing a small piston engine for mounting bicycles. Just a month after the official liberation of Italy in 1944, SIATA announced its intention to sell to the public this engine, named “Cucciolo” (Italian for “puppy” in terms of its characteristic exhaust sound). The first Cucciolos were offered independently by the buyer to fit standard bicycles; however, businessmen soon purchased large quantities of small engines and offered whole motorcycles for sale.

In 1950, after having sold over 200,000 Cucciolos in collaboration with SIATA, Ducati finally offered its own motorcycle based on the Cucciolo. This first Ducati motorcycle was a 48 cc motorcycle, weighed 44 kilograms, had a top speed of 40 mph (64 km / h), and had a 15 mm (0.59 in) carburetor giving just under 200 mpg. – US (1.2 l / 100 km; 240 mpg imp). Ducati soon dropped the Cucciolo name in favor of the 55M and 65TL models.

When the market turned to larger bikes, Ducati executives responded by impressing at the Milan Show in early 1952 by introducing the 65TS cycle and the Cruiser (four-stroke scooter). Although the Cruiser was named the most interesting new vehicle on display in the 1952 show, the Cruiser was not very successful, and only a few thousand were produced two years before the model ceased production.

In 1953, management split the company into two separate divisions, Ducati Meccanica SpA and Ducati Elettronica, in recognition of their different motorcycle and electronics product lines.
