In 1996, Alstare debuted in the Supersport Championship and World Superbike Championship in a partnership with Ducati. Fabrizio Pirovano rode a Ducati 748SP in the Open Supersport Championship (now the World Supersport Championship) and Michael Paquay, a Ducati 916. Pirovano had a great year; finishing first with 9 podiums and six race wins.
Almost 20 years later, Ducati and Alstare have reunited as the official Ducati factory team and are running the new Panigale R. Alstare's new riders for the Panigale R at this year's World Superbike Championship are Ayrton Badovini and former World Superbike Champion Carlos Checa.
Alstare has been in the superbike racing business for over 20 years and are marking this milestone with their first concept bike.

"This machine combines a wise blend of innovating architecture and cutting-hedge aesthetics : revolutionary suspended chassis, enhanced mechanic parts, front suspension integrated in the global artwork, sculpted deflectors."

It took 2 years of work but Alstare is "proud to present today the outcome of their fruitful cooperation. We hope that you will appreciate our creation to the extent of the passion and energy that we have dedicated to this project!"
