Ducati wants to enter the entry-level small-displacement car models, cooperation with India’s Hero will be a good choice. Hero is India’s largest motorcycle company, occupying 46% of India’s market share, and Hero has had long-term successful cooperation experience with Honda.

Hero Street Car
There are also rumors that Ducati will develop a 300cc single-cylinder engine. The power platform will be applied to the street car Monster and Rally Multistrada, to compete with BMW’s G310R and GS310R.
Ducati Multistrada 1200
Ducati’s development of small displacement cars will undoubtedly attract more people to become Ducati users. This is a very smart approach. If everything is true, will the 300cc Ducati be like KTM, setting off a frenzy of small displacement again?
