Bajaj and KTM might buy Ducati from Volkswagen – KTM CEO
While Volkswagen AG continues to waver in its decision to sell the motorcycle brand, KTM has shown interest in owning the Italian motorcycle company.

KTM CEO, Stefan Pierer has expressed a desire in owning Ducati yet again. In an interview recently with Speed Week, he revealed that KTM’s Indian partners, Bajaj wants to add another motorcycle brand to the company portfolio. (Bajaj KTM also owns Husqvarna brand)

With Volkswagen AG contemplating selling the motorcycle brand, timing seems right for Bajaj KTM to purchase Ducati. There is rumor that acquisition talks have commenced with Pierer floating some ideas as to how Ducati would fit into the KTM strategy......
