Moto Rapido Ducati was formed in 2002 by two Ducati enthusiasts, then we were just a small independant shop servicing, selling, tuning and racing Ducati.

After several years as an independent specialist, we were noticed and recognised by Ducati UK and in 2005 we were appointed as a fully authorised Ducati dealer and Ducati Performance specialist (we've even won a few awards!) We are very proud of our specialist workshop background and not just a regular Ducati dealer, we support many UK racers, track riders, and all of the main owners clubs.

Whilst we have remained a small personally owned dealership, we now enjoy a close relationship with Ducati UK and the racing division of Ducati italy, Ducati Corse.
Our race team has developed over the years from club level racing to British Superbike level. We are never going to be a huge main dealer, but we are proud to offer the best of both independent and enthusiastic specialists plus the backup of a fully authorised dealer. We only maintain, tune, race and sell Ducati motorcycles. If you do just one thing, as a true specialist, you can do it really well, so we don't get involved in other brands, you wont find anything other than a Ducati in our workshop!

Paul 'Barry' Hannaford

 

Race team No1 mechanic and Engine Builder

What Paul doesn't know about Ducati engines isn't worth knowing! He knows how to shim, rumble, squish and flow and port your engine plus he also builds the engines for our BSB bike!

Bikes owned:

Worryingly Paul tends to prefer the smell of two stroke for some reason!

Ray Eggleton

 

Senior Technician and Engine Builder.

Ray has been a factory trained Ducati senior tech since the 888 Superbike and has completed every course with the factory since. A wealth of experience on the Ducati range, not much he hasn't seen.
