Wednesday: Cagiva 650 Alazzurra

to Wallpaper Wednesday. Every I will post up something from the world of Ducati you just might like to grace your desktop. week we have one of the more machines that can nevertheless be thought of as a Ducati, the Cagiva 650 .

Although Cagiva purchased in 1985, it had already struck an for the supply of 650 Pantah engines 2 earlier for what would the Elefant trail bike and machine, the Cagiva Ala Azzurra or Wing. Delays meant the bike was finally launched after the take over. The Alazzurra name was used on the covers of what was practically a 650 Pantah powered sport

 The engines were in Bologna but the rest of the machine and assembly was carried out at the Cagiva in Varese.

Despite the obvious heritage, every cycle part bar the was different on the Alazzurra. Ducatisti ignored the machine which was in relatively small numbers 1,536 were made in and ’86) and riders of other had many more capable at the time.

The model showed how far Ducati had fallen behind in the stakes as its 2-valve, air-cooled 55 bhp competed with Japanese like the 75bhp, liquid Kawasaki GPZ600R Ninja on but was woefully outclassed in performance. 600 class comparisons of the time, the offered confidence inspiring and was the clear contrarians choice!

Today the Cagiva is an interestingly if blandly styled sport with that delightful engine.  This power remains a distant relative to all the 2-valve engines.  The itself is a precious link Ducati and suitor Cagiva who responsible for the 4-valve revolution ultimately propelled the factory to the it enjoys today.
