Rent a Ducati

11/15/14 - 899 Panigale and Monster 821! is very pleased to announce two new motorcycles to be added to our rental fleet. With its many excellent reviews and write-ups, we bring you the 899 Panigale (info page). The 'little brother' to the 1199, the 899 Panigale gives you the same fully adjustable electronic options as on the 1199: 3 engine modes (Race, Sport, and Wet), Traction Control, and ABS, and provides just the right balance of power, weight, handling, braking, and overall smoothness to make it perhaps the very best sport motorcycle available today.

We also have the 2015 Monster 821 (info page) awaiting you! This great Monster package takes the 821 motor used in the Hypermotard 821, and places it in a new Monster chassis with an adjustable seat offering up to 1 inch of seat-height movement. Also included is the full electronics and safety package providing you with 3 engine modes (Sport, Touring, and Urban), Traction Control, and ABS. If you have always like the Monster line up, you will love this bike!

5/15/14 - Another Monster 696, Upgrades to ST3, and More Motorcycles Soon!
Due to overwhelming popularity, is pleased to announce the addition of another Monster 696 (link) to our rental fleet! With a low seat height, easy-to-reach bars, and sporting character, the Monster continues to be one of our most popular rentals. If you have not had an opportunity to ride a Ducati Monster, we have just improved your chances to do so.

Due to our ST3's popularity, we have added some significant upgrades. The ST3 (link), Ducati's original (some say best!) Sport-Touring motorcycle, is a gentleman's sport-touring motorcycle with a potent but very smooth 1000cc 3-valve Desmo engine and Ducati panniers. To make it even better, we have added a Fast by Ferracci Forza exhaust and an Ohlins adjustable shock. So now, the ST3 has plenty of torque, power, handling, and comfort to get you and a passenger where you want to be in typical Ducati style, whether on the highway or on a twisty mountain road!

COMING SOON! The new fantastic Monster 1200 and the amazing 899 Panigale! To stay tuned for future announcements; To get notified quickly, please add your email address to the right and LIKE our Facebook page here:

8/13/11 - New Bikes!!! (Multi 1200 ABS)
We hope everyone has been having a great summer! We just returned from Laguna Seca Moto GP slightly sunburned but had a great time. The highlight being the Ducati sponsored track walk led by Jason DiSalvo! Check out our Facebook page for photos.

We highlighted last month our new rental location at Pro Italia in Los Angeles. In addition to the new Diavel we also have a brand new 2011 Multistrada 1200 ABS (with bags) available to rent! If you haven't ridden this amazing bike, you are in for a big surprise because it is as comfortable as any touring bike, but corners like a sport bike. With 150 bhp on tap, and 4 engine-mapped riding modes (Urban, Enduro, Touring, and Sport), adjustable traction control, and full ABS, this bike really does cover new technological grounds. If you didn't catch the Ducati Experience Tour you now have both a Diavel and a Multistrada 1200 ABS available in Los Angeles to spend a whole day or a whole weekend riding. Or, grab one for a week if you really want to get away. Enjoy!

7/9/11 - New Los Angeles Location!!!
Pro Italia Motorcycles, in Glendale, CA, is's newest rental location. As many of you know, we have wanted to have a Los Angeles area location for a long time and we are very happy to finally have that with an organization that has a great reputation like Pro Italia.

Our website is updated and we are now taking reservations for the Diavel with the first rental date scheduled for next Friday, July 15th! So, if you took a test ride, but still aren't convinced, this is your chance to spend a whole day, or better yet a weekend on it so you can see just how good this bike really is! Oh, and it's still available for Moto GP weekend... Better grab it fast, cause it's gonna go fast now that we've announced it!

5/18/11 - Diavel !!! And other bikes. is very pleased to announce that we have added the brand new Ducati Diavel to the stable! Here it is up at the Palomar Mountain General Store. Riding the Diavel is an initiation to the unexpected. The power is great and comes on smoothly, but strongly given the 162 bhp figure. What is entirely unexpected is how agile this bike really is and how composed even at significant lean angles. It goes, handles, is beautiful, and is a Ducati after all! And for all you lucky people reading this, it is available to rent!

Other bike news: we added another 848 Superbike to the line-up with carbon fiber Termi's, Ohlins TTX shock, Ohlins steering damper, smoked screen, and solo seat. Now, riders in Santa Barbara as well as San Diego have the opportunity to ride the amazing Ducati 848 Superbike (currently winning AMA & WSBK races regularly)!

12/11/08 - RiDE UK Magazine Review

The story is great, but it may be a tough for most of us to check out since they are based in the United Kingdom! Maybe you can check them out at your nearest enthusiasts magazine store.
