1987 Cagiva Alazzurra for

1987 Cagiva Alazzurra is a bit than most bikes we try to feature here. Bikes the 80’s, while not quite yet classic . are definitely old … And they’re very close: 1987 was 27 ago! I’d bet that 80′s will be the next big thing in of classic bike trends, and you know it, early “slingshot” that haven’t been and stretched into cruise-night will be getting gobbled up for prices.

The Cagiva Alazzurra was a badge-engineering job from the period Ducati was owned by Cagiva, a Ducati Pantah with the version of Ducati’s famous desmodromic v-twin cloaked in chunky 1980’s styling. It was as a sports-tourer with the emphasis on

The smaller Ducati twins just like their siblings with the right on them, so if you’re worried being seen on a “learner no one has to know. And even if they do, just make passing on the outside at a trackday that sweeter.

This bike a bit from original, but I’ll let the tell you about it. After so bikes recently featuring little information, it’s refreshing to see something as seemingly as this.

There is no ignition and so there is no key, the on off of the ignition is controlled by a toggle switch inside the headlight fairing I can be seen pointing out in the photos.

front brake calipers, brake caliper, front rear axle, and oil filter are using safety wire. Has a unique APE steering damper The front and rear brake are all steel braided.

I have receipts and old parts. starts and runs extremely Has Bridgestone Battlax tires and rear that are about 1 old with less than 300 on them.  I have had the motorcycle indoors however the paint is around 20 years old and has many and cracks.

The fuel tank has a few dents and the frame also has a few The seat is starting to come on the left side as can be seen in the

The tachometer is original, but the speedometer, [?!], and … lights been removed and replaced a single bracket for the remaining It looks like the bike is used, but also well and updated. Learn to do the valve and belt changes yourself and engines aren’t nearly as to run as their exotic reputation

Ducati’s two-valve twin can be reliable when properly care of, and they seem to it much better when they’re ridden regularly. when they sit idle they seem to fall

No danger of that with one! It’s especially that the bike has been wired for the track. On one hand, may be an indicator of a hard life. On the hand: track bike!

The paint isn’t original, but if you can the garish design, I think could be a really unusual, way into Ducati ownership and you net a bike in the bargain.
