Winner of 'Join Ducati' gets Hypermotard 950 with custom livery

By CARSIFU | 8 April 2020

ROME: The winner of the recent "Join Ducati" competition has been named and the lucky guy will be taking delivery of a brand new Hypermotard 950 that bears a special custom livery straight from Borgo Panigale to the United States.

The winner, Jose Carlos Sagarminaga, is a 34-year-old Californian Ducatista who already owns a Hypermotard SP that he uses on the track and is also a member of the Ducati Owners Club of Sacramento.

The Hypermotard 950 is an exclusive replica of the concept that debuted during the 2019 Concours of Elegance to which Ducati decided to make it available to its community by transforming it from concept to prototype.

The bike features graphics created by the Ducati Design Centre and was inspired by the graffiti of the metropolitan area, created only for the contest and personalised with the autograph of Andrea Amato - designer of the livery.

The contest also offered three lucky individuals the chance to attend the Ducati MotoGP Experience with a partner at the next upcoming European race weekends (which will be updated once the 2020 calendar has been confirmed).

This includes accommodation, access to the most exclusive areas of the circuit and a meet-and-greet session with Ducati Team MotoGP riders.

Also up for grabs were fifteen 1:8 scale reproductions of the Hypermotard 950 Concept and 10 Redline B2 backpacks made by Ogio exclusively for Ducati.

To join, participants in the competition uploaded the registration document of each Ducati motorcycle currently owned to a dedicated 'Join Ducati' website.

The Italian bike builder announced that it may look to repeat its initiative over the coming months and that fans should register themselves, if they haven't already done so, with the MyDucati programme that already has over 155,000 members to receive upcoming news, events and promotions.

The programme has a reserved area in which customers can manage their garage by accessing all the information on their bikes, update their profile and personal preferences to take part in initiatives of their interest and receive exclusive content.
