TEN jobs are set to be created with the opening of a Ducati motorcycle showroom.

Ducati UK has partnered with Breeze Motor Group to open the business at Bedrock Park on Ferndown Industrial Estate.

Ducati Bournemouth is due to open this autumn.

The 7,000sqft will provide the full range of Italian Ducati motorcycles and Scrambler Ducati as well as used bikes, official apparel, parts and accessories, as well as accommodating a workshop.

Fabrizio Cazzoli, managing director of Ducati UK said: “Ducati Strategy in the UK is very clear. We aim to fulfil our mission: ‘Enrich people’s lives through amazing experiences delivered by the highest quality, most beautiful and hi-tech power two-wheeler products’.

“To achieve this, we partner with organisations who share our same principle, values and performance.

“Breeze Motor Group has proved to be the perfect partner in the area. Together, with the opening of Ducati Bournemouth, we will reach amazing results for the benefit of all Ducati enthusiasts.“

The Ducati Bournemouth team will also host showroom events and a calendar of ride outs with routes designed to make the most of the Dorset scenery, with coffee and cake available at the showroom for refuelling.

Mark Langford, managing director of Breeze Motor Group said “We’re incredibly proud and excited to be bringing Ducati into Dorset.

“Our well-positioned, easily accessible dealership will offer an exceptional level of service to all customers and a great opportunity to enjoy the fantastic rides we have on our doorstep.”

The 10 new jobs will include specialist motorcycle technicians, sales executives and service advisers.

Breeze Motor Group, owned by John Corderoy, opened its first Volkswagen dealership in Poole in 2000, followed by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle van centres in Poole, Southampton and Portsmouth, the used car showroom Coastal Cars Sales in Poole, the Bournemouth Trade Parts Specialist franchise in Poole and most recently, Breeze Suzuki also in Poole.
