The official Desmo Owners Clubs have over 27,000 registered members around the world and represent the second biggest official motorcycle community linked to a brand. Active participation of its members is at the heart of a D.O.C. organization, with regard to both the management of the club and the assignment of roles. D.O.C.s unite a community of fans and are free from any ideology or conditioning of a political, racial, or religious nature. Members of D.O.C.s enjoy exclusive benefits as well as a worldwide network based on a unique passion for bikes and the Ducati brand.
The D.O.C.s’ mission is to offer all Ducati fans a meeting point, both real and virtual, where they can share, feed and promote their passion for the style, performance and glorious racing tradition of Borgo Panigale’s bikes. The official clubs organize activities for members as well as initiatives to attract new fans.
