the complicated bevel gear-driven made the bike uneconomical to thus the 1974 model is the round-case 90-degree v-twin desmodromic valve gear. the 1974 model bike is to be the most significant production in Ducati’s history, mostly it offered the highest standards of and performance available at that and essentially saved Ducati extinction.
