Mercedes-Benz: Partnering with Ducati for motorcycle production?


Street word has it that Mercedes-Benz is talking with Ducati about a possible motorcycle production.

A couple of months ago, a report surfaced that Volkswagen could team up with Suzuki to revive the old NSU motorcycle brand under its own umbrella. Now reports suggest that Mercedes-Benz could follow suit, potentially partnering with Ducati on a two-wheeled venture of its own.

The rumors are spurred by displays during Ducati events, where Mercedes unveiled a special edition SLK and marked the Italian debut of the SLS GT3, but don’t seem to have much more traction than that.
