Book a test ride on one of our demonstrator fleet now

We do encourage you to test ride a bike only if you are considering purchasing a new model within the next 12 months, this will give you the best insight into the performance and handling of the latest models, closer to your buying time, ensuring you find the best bike for you, at the right time. Spend an hour on our stunning new bikes, learning the controls and getting used to the power, handling and performance of a new model Ducati. 

Take our new models for a spin, we have a range of new bikes available for you to experience, see the list below or browse our new models here.

How a test ride works:

  • We recommend that you prebook to ensure the bike you are interested in is available
  • Arrive 20-30 minutes earlier than your allocated test ride time.
  • Our Team will go over the bike and the controls with you so you have the chance to get familiar with the bike and make sure you are aware of all the necessary components and riding modes before you head out. This will give you the best possible test ride experience.
  • With a full tank of fuel you can ride our demonstrator model for an hour, with no mileage limit, on any route you choose. We are only a few miles from the coast road to Ayrshire or a short journey onto the Loch Lomond sweeping roads. We kindly ask you to fill our bikes with fuel when returning them.
  • Arrive back at our showroom and give us your feedback. Tell us what you think of the bike and if you need any more information, please just ask. You can also put down a £500 deposit on a new bike at any time.
  • Our staff can even give you a part exchange quote on your current bike you have brought it in with you, or an estimated quote if you know all the information about it.
  • If you are interested in test riding another new demonstrator model, you are more than welcome to, as long as there is availability.
  • Enjoyed your test ride? Taken any photographs? Post them on our social media channels and we'll share and retweet. Just tag @DucatiGlasgow or #DucatiGlasgow
