The leading Ducati motorcycle garage London

Situated in the historic town of Greenwich, south east London, Ray Petty Meccanica is a leading Ducati motorcycle service and repair specialist.

Our business is built on our 35 years’ experience of servicing Ducati motorcycles. Although we are predominantly Ducati specialists we have expertise in other early Italian marques from the 1970’s and 80’s.

Our new purpose-built workshop which is just a stone’s throw away from the O2 arena and the Canary Wharf financial district, is designed around the requirements of our clients. From here we will fulfil all of your Ducati maintenance, repair and restoration requirements.

We are the London dealer for Rizoma, a high-end accessories manufacturer for Italian motorcycles and represent the producers of the other high quality parts that we use in our work.

So what do you get when you come to Ray Petty Meccanica? You join a small band of discerning Ducati owners who trust us to cater for all of their requirements in a clean, safe and tidy working environment. As a cherished customer, we work with you in a trusting one-to-one relationship to deliver a customer service you may not find anywhere else.

Routine maintenance

of your Ducati

The routine maintenance or service of your motorcycle is all about prevention rather than cure. We see our clients mostly once a year, depending of level of use, for a scheduled service. If you use your Ducati for commuting or frequently for other purpose, we recommend that you bring it in at least twice per year.

Excellent
knowledge

With knowledge and experience going back more than 35 years we know where to look and what needs to be checked before a breakdown or mishap occurs with your bike. Most of the time this means taking preventative measures on the known troublesome areas of your motorcycle.

The way we
work

When a client comes in for a routine service of their Ducati we start at one end and work our way through to the other. Once we ascertain what needs doing we contact you and discuss your requirements. From our experience this is the best approach in servicing your highly prized machine. Your Ducati needs a great deal of care and expertise to maintain it in its optimal condition.

A bit about Ray Petty

Ray has a long pedigree of working with motorcycles. In his more than 30 years’ experience of dealing with Italian marques, Ray has developed an in-depth knowledge and a unique perspective of the motorcycle industry.

Over the years looking after London’s motorcycle community, Ray has developed a reputation for honesty, mechanical excellence and integrity.

His attention to detail and requirement for precision have made him the go-to mechanic for thousands of enthusiasts riding an astonishing variety of machines from Moto Guzzi vintage classics to state-of-the-art present day Ducati’s.

Ray’s simple and timeless philosophy continues to guide RPM’s pursuit of engineering and aesthetic perfection: “A machine can only look beautiful if it performs beautifully.” and “If it looks good…it’s got to go good.”

Customising
your Ducati

Part of owning a Ducati or other iconic motorcycle is to express your individuality. It is difficult to do this with a stock motorcycle. Most customers want to put their “mark” on their bikes through various ideas and accessories:

  • High bars
  • Low bars
  • Clip-ons
  • Spokes wheels
  • Cast wheels
  • Different paint works
  • And so on

Small changes
big impact

You can change the whole character of a motorcycle by just changing the handlebars and mirrors. Even other subtler changes can often make a big difference.

We know that manufacturers spend huge resources in research and development when bringing a new motorcycle to market therefore not all customisation ideas are good ones. Chopping and changing parts because you can does not always make a better motorcycle. It can become an unpleasant or even a dangerous machine.

When a client comes to us with their customisation ideas we give them the benefit of our experience. We can usually tell straight away whether an idea is going to work and can steer you in a direction where at the end of the process you will still have a functioning motorcycle.

We only fit
quality parts

When it comes to following through with your customisation ideas we only use parts of the highest specification. Your Ducati is a quality product so we only use top quality parts when we personalise your machine. For example, when we fit a new drive chain, we only sell top of the range DID chains. They are safe, reliable and last twice as long. This is of the utmost consideration when we work on your motorcycle.

We supply parts and accessories from Brembo, Rizoma and every other high-end Italian manufacture. Ray’s philosophy is, “I will only sell it if I would buy it for my own motorcycle, and I’m fussy”.

We’d love to hear
from you
