A Daimler spokesman has put an end to rumors that his employer is trying to outbid Audi for an interest in motorcycle-builder Ducati.

Despite Daimler’s previous collaboration with the two-wheel wizards, it looks like Audi’s reported bid of $1.16 billion could be the only one. An Italian newspaper indicates the proposal from Audi is not a bid for the entire company, a strategy that Bloomberg suggests is more agreeable to Ducati.

We’ve also heard rumors of India’s Mahindra also being interested in the high-performance motorcycle marque, but there’s no mention of it in this report.
