Nick Adderley – Assistant Chief Constable for Staffordshire Police and National Lead of the BikeSafe project joined Ducatisti at the annual Ducati UK track day at Silverstone to take delivery of a new Panigale V4 decaled in Police livery.
The Panigale V4 has been loaned to BikeSafe as part of Ducati UK’s commitment to the BikeSafe Project. Assistant Chief Constable Nick Adderley and members of the BikeSafe team took the opportunity to take the track alongside Ducati devotees and put the Panigale V4 through its paces.
BikeSafe is a police led motorcycle project that is run by most forces throughout the UK. The main aim is to reduce the number of bikers being hurt on the roads. The focus of BikeSafe is that riding should be fun, and by improving skills, knowledge and hazard awareness it will hopefully make riding safer and more enjoyable. Their workshop explores the main riding hazards that biker faces. By delivering theory presentations and observed rides, a BikeSafe workshop help riders discover their strengths and weakness and develop their riding.

“We are absolutely delighted with the relationship we have with Ducati, what’s really important is our mission as part of BikeSafe is to help bikers to become safer on the roads and better road users. The fact that we have a relationship with Ducati means that we have that engagement opportunity with bikers, because the V4 really peaks people’s interest. They want to come over to us and enjoy the bike with us and it gives us the opportunity to really speak to them and educate them about safe riding.”
Tim Maccabee – Managing Director of Ducati UK
“On behalf of all of us at Ducati UK, we are extremely proud to be able to bring awareness to the BikeSafe campaign. The Panigale V4 we have had designed with Police livery will certainly attract attention, and I hope it will help to engage riders with what BikeSafe do and essentially promote safer riding.”
