Top gear for Ducati motorcycle fans

Privacy

Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati and Swiss watch company Tudor have collaborated to create a stunning watch any Ducatisti would be proud to wear.

The Fastrider Black Shield costs up to $5000 and is made as a single piece from high-tech injected ceramic. The solid black, monobloc case is scratchproof and the middle case and bezel use a complex manufacturing procedure to keep it waterproof at depths of up to 150m. The watch strap is available in rubber, leather with red stitching, or beige Alcantara with black stitching. It is one of several Ducati watches the two have partnered to create.

Ducati has also released its 2014 Spring/Summer collection including a Dark Armour jacket, now redesigned in a perforated leather version, Diavel Tex 14 jacket in Cordura and the new Thunder 14 helmet.

There is also a collection of official clothing worn in the garages by the engineers and mechanics of the Ducati MotoGP Team.
