Luckiest. Pope. Ever.
It was a big day for His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, as Ducati Holdings CEO Gabriele Del Torchio popped by the Pope’s residence at Castel Gandolfo to drop off two brand new Multistrada 1200s. Both bikes are nicely custom painted with the gold and white papal color scheme.
Il Papa himself won’t be riding the bikes, however, as they are slated for use by the Papal Gendarmerie. I just hope that they can manage to keep their speed down low enough not to leave the papal motorcade shrinking on the horizon behind them.
