Chris Pidcock, owner and Chairman of Pidcock Motorcycles and Ducati Nottingham has been involved in the Motorcycle trade for many years in the Nottingham area and commented, “It has been great to see many new faces into the dealership and we have even had people arranging ride-outs to see our new Ducati store. Ducati has a passion for its brand and that passion has rubbed off on all of us involved in this project. It has been an exciting project for me personally which is something I enjoy and it has been encouraging to see local motorcyclists so enthusiastic about Ducati Nottingham.”

Tim Maccabee, Managing Director of Ducati UK who attended the VIP opening and official launch was equally enthused about the new Ducati store. “Nottingham is my home town so I am particularly pleased to have such a high quality dealer here. Pidcocks share our passion for the brand and we look forward to working with Chris and his team and bringing the people of the East Midlands a premium Ducati experience.”

Just brought a Monster 821 from here, Brilliant Team which made it very easy to part with my money but looked after me on the price side

Just a question, what made you buy from Nottingham Ducati rather than Itali Moto in Lincoln, just curious?

Well I was looking for a 821 Stripe and sadly John @ Italia didn't have one around without getting it in from another branch.

The guys @ Italia Lincoln are really top blokes but on this occasion Mark and Curtis at Ducati Notts really looked after me Service wise and with a sweet deal for my first duke! (first bike infact)

Brraaaaaaap

I remember him as an apprentice at the now defunct Marcol Motorcycles

Happy times not that I could actually recall them all exactly as they happened...

I remember Marcol. they were the guys who said they could service my bike and have it back within the day. When I collected it they hadn't done what I'd asked them to do and when I asked why they said they didn't have time. I don't think they could have set the shims correctly anyway because the engine was still too warm and needs to stand overnight. I never went back there again anyway and they're not there anymore. I know why now.
