Businessweek.com has just reported:

Audi AG (NSU) is in talks to buy Ducati Motor Holding SpA (DMH), the maker of luxury motorbikes ridden by celebrities such as Brad Pitt, from owner Investindustrial SpA, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The Milan-based private equity company may hold an initial public offering of Ducati in Hong Kong this year or sell it to a rival, two people familiar with the plans said last month. Investindustrial is still considering both an IPO and the sale of the company and no final decision has been taken on the matter, a person familiar with the plan said today. The Bologna based-company was delisted from the Milan exchange in 2008.
