Ducati North America opened its newest dealership in Newport Beach, California with a grand opening party.

Ducati North America celebrated the opening of its newest motorcycle dealership in Newport Beach, California, this weekend with a grand opening party Friday night. Open to all Ducati motorcycle enthusiasts, the soiree kicked off a weekend of activity at Ducati Newport Beach.
In typical Italian fashion appetizers and drinks were offered to all who turned out and a DJ mixed beats ensuring a fun vibe. Also in attendance was Ducati’s factory American Superbike racer, Larry Pegram, who competes on a Ducati 1098R in AMA Pro Road Racing’s American Superbike class. Fresh off a win in Topeka a few weeks ago, Pegram was all smiles, mingling with fans, posing for photos and signing autographs. Later on, models strutted around in some of Ducati’s newest 2010 riding and casual apparel.

“It’s really cool that Ducati does stuff like this,” said one area rider who showed up on his Ducati 1098 Superbike. “This is the kind of stuff that separates Ducati from the other guys. It’s like you’re part of the family.”

Area Ducati enthusiasts were treated to free food and drinks inside.

On Saturday, the dealership hosted a free suspension tuning clinic, demo rides on this year’s Ducati motorcycles, and offered a 25% discount on new Ducati branded apparel. L&L Motorsports rolled in their mobile dyno machine so riders could see how much power their motorcycles pump out. The Oakley Rolling O Lab was also parked out in front of the store and allowed customers to see first-hand how tough Oakley lenses really are.
