About Us

As it always has done, the DOC GB welcomes ALL Ducati owners and enthusiasts in the Great Britain and abroad, regardless of model. We are just as welcoming to the Cucciolo or Diana owner as we are to the V4 or Hypermotard owner…

Founded in 1974 with over 2500 members in the UK and abroad.

We are the ONLY one of the recent proliferation of Ducati clubs in the UK that has an open door to all owners. We offer local branches, an active forum, 6 magazines a year, tool hire, DVLA machine dating, affiliation to other motorcycling organizations, Factory Desmo Owners Club affiliation and numerous events. Not only does this help you, it helps us to remain… one of the biggest Ducati Clubs IN THE WORLD! Official – ask the factory.
