CUPERTINO, Calif. - Ducati North America has launched its retail financing program for new and used models in the United States.

The program is supported by VW Credit Inc. (VCI), a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group of America Inc. Ducati Financial Services (DFS) began operation Sept. 5.

DFS will provide customer financing through Ducati dealers across the U.S. In addition, DFS will also offer ancillary products for new and used motorcycles, including the Ever Red Motorcycle Protection Plan, Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) plan, and Road Hazard Tire and Wheel Protection plans.

“The introduction of Ducati Financial Services marks an historic time for Ducati North America. With specifically tailored, in-house programs, we are now able to effectively enhance and improve the customer buying and ownership experience,” said Dominique Cheraki, general manager of Ducati North America. “The implementation of a program of this magnitude represents a milestone in the development of Ducati and its growing dealer network in North America.”

The United States is Ducati’s largest market, with 9,258 units retailed in 2012. The first motorcycle financed through DFS was a new 2013 red Ducati 848 EVO (see press image, above).
