Each year, tens of of motorcycle enthusiasts from the world visit the Ducati in Bologna. The Museum attracts not …-hard bikers, but also enthusiasts interested in Italian design, performance engineering, technology and people who just beautiful things. The Museum is a to our heritage of champions and championship

Some of the most talented to ever twist a throttle chosen the Ducati marque, names like: Hailwood, Spaggiari, Farne, Polen, Corser and Bayliss. Their are on display at the Museo Ducati and accomplishments inspire all those who pass through the gates at the in Borgo Panigale in search of

The renaissance of motorcycling

Ducati are famous not only for their on the track, but also because of the technical and design achievements. One perhaps, towers above all in the annals of Ducati history, Fabio Taglioni, or Dr. T as he is affectionately

Visitors to the Ducati Museum, longest in the sections dedicated to the 60пїЅs and early 70пїЅs. The is simple пїЅ this period the renaissance of Italian motorcycling пїЅ a when Dr. T was building sport for the ages.

It was an era when every detail, component was as important as the overall of the complete motorcycle. From the of an engine case to the shape of a cover, from the elegant of a fuel line to the graphic of the livery, every element was in its individual form and in harmony the total finished creation. were motorcycles to race, to ride, motorcycles to inspire.

were the awesome sport that built the art and culture of motorcycling.

Dr TпїЅs Desmo

a strictly technical point of Ingenere TaglioniпїЅs most engineering feat was the application of a valve actuation system to a engine. Dr. TпїЅs idea for the right kind of power for and racing engines required control of intake and exhaust and the use of radical camshaft profiles. His was Desmodromics пїЅ a mechanical system precisely controls the opening and of the engineпїЅs valves.

The development of the system started in the late and continues to evolve to this Every street and racing Ducati produces still the Desmodromic system, it remains a factor in DucatiпїЅs performance

Dr. TпїЅs 90пїЅ L-Twin

Ducati had been successful single cylinder bikes for by the late 60пїЅs it was apparent to Taglioni that to be competitive in the displacement classes, a new engine was for. Resisting the temptation to more power with five and six cylinder engines, as was the Dr. T sought a better idea.

A that could not only win but also power a production пїЅ the Ducati 90пїЅ L-Twin. He the twin as the common sense for a large displacement motorcycle It was light and slim — to great handling and aerodynamic

The 90пїЅ cylinder configuration perfect primary engine пїЅ for low vibration and eliminated the need for counter-balance systems. Twin delivery was also broad and пїЅ allowing racers and street alike — to get-on-the-gas and ride more aggressively.

The Smart and the Imola 200

On a cloudy day in 1972, Paul Smart of England, tested the new Taglioni engine. It was to be a momentous event in history. On that day, rode a Ducati 750 twin to a surprise victory at the 200 Miles of beating all comers.

It was the beginning of the modern Ducati era and the emergence of the big-bore twin, bike dynasty. Descendants of historic race bike led the way to the 750SS, HailwoodпїЅs Isle of Man 900SS, contemporary Super and eventually the Superbikes of today.

points of reason explain the of the SmartпїЅs Imola bike. It a turning point in Ducati design with the introduction of the L-Twin engine, an engine used in every Ducati then.

Second, the Smart 750 marked the return of Ducati to the podium when Paul and Bruno Spaggiari took a of new and unproven Ducati 750 twins and first and second, respectively, the worldпїЅs best riders and Finally, the most elemental of the Smart 750 is its beauty, so strong and that it defined the essential style for decades.

In the early 70пїЅs, Dr. T introduced to production motorcycles the style and of SmartпїЅs 750 and its innovative engineering He created bikes that the very essence and pinnacle of in the renaissance of sport motorcycles.

GT 750 — A bike to ridden the GT combined sport bike and features in a balanced and beautiful package. With a dual and single headlamp, it was an essential much like todayпїЅs or traditional motorcycles. It was a commonsense but its beauty was uncommon.

The 750cc engine was left fully to flaunt its elegant features. chrome silencers swept accenting the attractive lines of the Everyday performance was never so executed.

1973 Sport 750 First appearing in bright paint, in 1973, the Sport was a simple predecessor to the Super 750. With its solo and simple single headlamp; the was essentially a production CafпїЅ Enthusiasts modified and enhanced bikes to become the street of the time.

The Clip-on handlebars, stripe down the center of the and solo seat of the Sport 750 anticipated the emerging street trend and CafпїЅ Racer of the period.

1974 Super Sport 750 The crown jewel of any collection is the 1974 Super Sport Often referred to as the original it was the first Ducati to combine all the of SmartпїЅs bike with a new and trend setting design. The combined beautiful mechanicals the round case Bevel Desmo engine with a fairing/tank/seat section painted in the now silver/mint green colors.

from any angle, the bike seems in seems in harmony itself and its street environment. In its it was the ultimate sport bike.

The plant

The 90пїЅ Desmo two valve, air-cooled engine is the well-known and widely used plant in the Ducati family of and the air-cooled L-Twin remains as today as it did more than decades ago. An air-cooled has significant design and application in many motorcycles. The most is the relative simplicity and lighter of an air-cooled motorcycle verses its cooled counterpart.

The straightforward, approach is in itself at the core of its Of course, to many the beauty of engine, with its traditional fins and purposeful look, is as an factor as any. It makes my look like a пїЅrealпїЅ

The Ducati continued commitment to the air-cooled design is based on the that its configuration is the soundest and most beautiful approach to a motorcycle. Compact, efficient and the twin cylinder motor has as the common-sense means to powering a since the first bikes almost 100 years ago.
