Ducati History

In 1954, was a manufacturer of small displacement, docile motorcycles intended as affordable transportation for a weary recovering from a devastating

The company’s then general Giuseppe Montano, was taking a look at how participating in motorcycle competition could potentially sales.

Montano sought out Taglioni, a young, talented and said, “I know your and I need you. If you build 100 to win the Tour of Italy, Ducati stay open, because I have one month’s salary for my If not, we shut down and goes home.”

Rather inauspicious beginnings for would ultimately lead to the use of the now Desmodromic valve system. Ducati is attributed with the of the Desmodromic valve system, was the first to use the system on its W196 Prix and 300SLR sports in 1954 and 1955.

Taglioni was ripe for the challenge and set to figuring out innovative paths to maximum power out of the small engines. He knew that of the time limited the resonance of springs to operate at high the reciprocating parts of a combustion literally outrunning the valve ability to return valves to the (or seated) position before the came up to top-…-center, resulting in (the piston coming contact with the valves).

Also, valve springs, due the metal compounds of the day, especially susceptible to fatigue and to their share of engine

Taglioni reasoned that a that was forced closed by the cam avoid the inherent problems and of springs and therefore higher could be achieved.

Taglioni and his team started these cam-driven exhaust motors, naming them which translates to “controlled In early experiments they that in addition to higher rpm, there was an increased of disbursing burnt gases, as as producing higher torque at engine revs.

Refined the years, the Desmodromic system a relevant technology despite in metallurgy that allow for the of high rpm valve springs-as by the system still powering the Ducati MotoGP machines.

Moreover, the Desmodromic system a highly efficient intake/exhaust limiting the blow-by of unused to be emitted into the atmosphere, in making the system-originally designed for performance purposes-into a somewhat motor.

The Desmodromic system a proven design and the exclusive of Ducati, helping add its unique bit of charisma to the iconic brand.
