For Sale: 1987 Ducati 750

Posted on June 5, 2011 by tad

The is pretty polarizing in terms of its I’m fond of this bike though the frame is hidden: I the signature Ducati trellis and am slightly heartbroken the new Ducati is rumored to do away with the almost entirely.  The Paso have a trellis frame under all of that bodywork, but not so pretty to look at, being up from square-tubing and never to be on display.

First producted in 1986, the was designed by Massimo Tamburini and after Italian rider “Paso” Pasolini.  Pasolini was in 1973 on the first lap of the 250 cc race at while riding for Aermacchi.

The was powered by the Fabio Taglioni- belt-drive, air/oil cooled motor that replaced the bevel-drive twins. In this the engine displaced 748cc’s and about 72 hp, enough to propel the sport-touring machine to a top speed of 130 mph.

From the start, the bike was controversial and sales were As forward-thinking as the styling is, it must been shocking when

And there were practical

The bike used a Weber intended for use in an automobile, nestled in the of the engine’s vee.  This led to serious rideability issues are difficult to overcome with tuning.

The 750 Paso later to 904 cc’s and gained a 6 th gear the 906 Paso, but retained the problematic It was ultimately superseded by 907 IE that the “Paso” name but gained 17” and the fuel injection indicated by the finally providing the smooth delivery the bike should had from the start.

From the sellers ad:

Ducati 906 Paso

“Immaculate slight imperfection on seat. All parts with the exception of Filter, Barnett Clutch, and spec taillight/directional signal.  Large Ducati Jacket, Ducati Helmet by Suomy and Manual.

Tires, sprockets, and chain have than 500 miles.  New battery.  owner purchased in 1995, has garage kept and fair driven.  Only 700 of the Ducati 750 model year 1987 sold in the US .”

The seller’s add mentions imperfection on seat,” which like someone tried to it.  Corbin still a replacement that is highly considering this bike’s intent.

These bikes are distinctive, and very usable.  are relatively low, even for the “Limited Edition” that emphasizes the slab-sided styling of the and can represent an affordable entry to ownership.  Ducatis do need more often than a Japanese bike, but the Pantah is extremely well-developed and generally reliable if cared for.  choice can be very limited for bikes due to the 16” wheel size.

  Upgrading to 17” wheels is possible, but involved: the best move if really looking to fit modern is to just buy the later 907 IE.

A carburetor upgrade is more and worthwhile, with owners converting to a pair of Dell’Orto’s.
