SanDisk has announced that it is working closely with Ducati in a sponsorship deal that allows SanDisk to use the Ducati brand for its products. The Ducati Moto GP motorcycles will carry SanDisk branding as part of the agreement.
SanDisk launched three new SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition products, of which the first is the Ducati Edition USB flash drive. It's been designed to resemble the Duacti Moto GP motorcycle and it comes with 4GB of capacity. It has a read and write speed of 20MB/s according to SanDisk, which makes it their fastest USB flash drive.
The Ducati Edition flash drive has a retractable USB connector and a rear light that illuminates when the drive is accessed. It will cost around US$124.99 when it becomes available in August in the US and Europe, with the rest of the world following in September.
The other two products consist of a new Extreme Ducati Edition CompactFlash card and SD Plus card. The SD Plus card features an integrated USB connector so it can be used without a card reader. The CF card features write speeds of up to 45MB/s and the SD Plus card manages 20MB/s.
The SD Plus card will be available in a 4GB capacity for US$129.99 while the CF card will cost US$164.99 for the capacity and an insane US$314.99 for an 8GB version. All three cards will be available in the US and Europe in August.
