Ms. Vicki is the perfect one to set up the Ducati area. They could have picked no one better than her. Congratulations Vicki! You'll do a wonderful job.

1973 Ducati 750 Sport | BikeEXIF

1973 Ducati 750 Sport | BikeEXIF | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
Every now and then, it’s good to go back to square one. To revisit the baseline, if you like. And for me, that’s an immaculate classic motorcycle captured by a skilled photographer. Like this matching-numbers 1973 Ducati 750 Sport.

Vincent’s Ducati | Shed built bikes

Vincent’s Ducati | Shed built bikes | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

A while back Vincent, the guy I built the Virago and the CX500 chopper with, bought a Ducati Cagiva Pantah 650. He sold his Yamaha R1 for it and that was a wise decission. The Ducatis isn’t even finished yet, but I’m pretty sure he’s already done more miles on it, than on the R1 in 3 seasons….

Although the bike is not finished yet, it is taking shape nicely. At this moment it has custom made exhaust pipes with modified mufflers, Emco air filters, air-supension at the back, a CX500 C gas tank, a seat made of a CX500 C gas tank, Tomasselli clipons, home made headlight and license plate brackets, after market headlight, Honda speedo and a seat made by the same guy (Raymond) that did the seat on my CB750....More photos and the rest of the story on the headline link above

Ducati Scrambler - Another Spy Picture

Ducati Scrambler - Another Spy Picture | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Translated by Google: 


Ducati motorcycles - the sightings continue the highly anticipated Ducati Scrambler, this time it was paparazzi with the colors and details that made immortal the original model of the years 60/70: superstructures yellow tank with chrome inserts, high handlebars, the line seems successful and as required by the decidedly retro fashion now -

Retrospective: Ducati Sport Desmo 500: 1977-1982

Retrospective: Ducati Sport Desmo 500: 1977-1982 | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

The moral of this story is simple: Do not let non-motorcycling bureaucrats run a motorcycle company.

Ducati had a pretty successful run from its inception in 1946, especially after it introduced the Diana 250 single to the American market in 1961. However, financial problems cropped up in the early ’70s and, in the typical Italian way, the government stepped in to save the company. The new board, a governing body made up of gentlemen in Brioni suits, knew little about the realities of motorized two wheelers.

1977 Ducati Sport Desmo 500.

Although Ducati had made its reputation on singles, the board decided to phase them out after 1974…and replace them with 350 and 500 parallel twins. The idea of a 350cc bike was sensible, as the government provided a huge tax break for motorcycles under that size. And building a 500 version would be inexpensive, as all the hard work would have gone into the 350.

Classic. The very definition  of Ducati Iconic.  But more like twice the price + they mention for real ones with correct numbers in good condition....

Bikers Classics 2012 | Spa Francorchamps Circuit |

Bikers Classics 2012 | Spa Francorchamps Circuit | | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

This year Ducati was the featured marque and the theme was F1's and the derivitives from the F1 - Montjuich, Laguna Seca, Santamonica and the TT2 and TT1. The text is in Dutch but the photos speak for the depth and quality of the event and the Ducati display. 

The Ducati museum in Bologna was also present with a large tent where a dozen bikes in the race history of the brand were exhibited. All V-twins, starting with a replica of the 750 racer (#16) which Paul Smart in 1972 the 200 miles from Imola won. Next up was the winner of the 24 Hours of Montjuich of 1975 (# 9) with its narrowed lower crankcase for extra ground clearance, and equipped with lights for night stages. The list of racers was closed by a team of 750SS Spaggiari and an NCR endurance racer. On the other side of the tent stood the TT1 and TT2 F1 which Marco Lucchinelli won the Battle Of The Twins race at Daytona in 1986. The four models were represented by 888, 916 and 999
