Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli has been presented with Ducati's 2010 Best Product Innovation Award.
Members of the motorcycle manufacturer's purchasing, technical, quality and logistics departments all analyse the performance of its suppliers to determine the winner of the award.
Pirelli was recognised for the excellent development of the Scorpion Trail tyres for the Ducati Multistrada motorbike and the Diablo Rosso II compound for the Ducati Diavel bike.
Senior vice president of Pirelli Moto Uberto Thun expressed his pride at receiving the award at the ceremony.
"This award makes us proud of our ability to support the partners with innovative solutions that contribute to the success of both their bikes and our products," he said.
