"Mission: Red Planet" is the travel story and photo reportage from Dubai to World Ducati Week 2012. This ride will see an Indian motorcycle photojournalist, Sundeep Gajjar (also called "the Motographer").
Sundeep is a talented photographer, founder and CEO of India's largest motorcycling community and portal at xBhp.com.
And, first of all, a Ducati lover: "Ducati has been more than a bike to me. It is like my family. It has treated me as part of its own. Never spoiling me, but always motivating to do better and achieve more with a motorcycle and a camera. They make bikes, which are a delight for both the motorcyclist and photographer in me. No two ways about that one" he says.
The route has been planned to pass through the countries of Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Slovenia and through Italy.
Along the way Sundeep will be visiting the various Ducati dealerships and will also try to meet local biker clubs, and will tell us his emotions through his amazing pictures that will shoot and publish along the way.
Sundeep has recorded a video message for all Ducatisti
