A new company is organizing tours in France using various Ducatis. Columbus International has a garage full of Streetfighters, Monster S2R 1000s, Hypermotards and 848s.
You can rent the bikes by the day for anything between £165 (Monster) and £210 (Streetfighter), or go for one of their uber-exclusive packages – there’s a Gourmet Tour (eating at starred Michelin restaurants), a High Octane Tour (drive a F1 car on a race track), Offshore Ride Tour (riding, luxury yachting, barracuda fishing) and Nature Tour (riding through the natural parks, private yacht, restaurants).
They also offer special MotoGP and Formula One packages. Two days of riding a Ducati, transferred by helicopter to the circuit, VIP treatment… you get the picture.
There are winter packages available as well, because, being the South of France, you can ride in the morning and ski in the afternoon.
And the price? The week-long packages vary from £4800 to £10,000. Well, you knew it wasn’t going to be cheap…
