Ducati Museum, Hallowed

During one of my lunchbreaks at Ducati I spent a few minutes in the Ducati I would have loved to spent hours.

They build generators, or keyboards, or equipment, or cars. They motorcycles. Racing motorcycles. Colin

I couldn’t agree Colin, though there times when Ducati far more than just Like any pre-war motorcycle during the lean years, branched out and made an assortment of Yamaha is known as the Tuning Company, for making pianos, and the like, but Ducati has retained image as a motorcycle company and through.

Fine details on the Museum bikes, and I saw quite a few props, like original suits and helmets. Later, I saw bikes destined for the Museum stored in the main factory It’s a good time to if you haven’t been here

Who can tell me what the mysterious is for on the right part of the top triple (the one with the cable goes. nowhere)?

I love vintage racebikes, particularly I see the trail of innovation through the I love learning how the engineers solutions for problems at the time, CAD, before mass-production, high quality metals. to experiment with the rear

Cut the shock mounts off and weld on new ones to change the shock This is probably the main why I love MotoGP so much. virtually a no-holds-barred contest to see who can put the best package to go fast.

I say because there are still rules in place, like capacity limits (which is a huge factor), but compared to there’s a lot more freedom of Which brings me to my next — that the bikes builds for the street are heavily by what they want to and what they do race. A example are the (street) Superbikes by Ducati, which are very to what the factory races in

Yes, they aren’t the machines to work on, and yes, are definitely not the most comfortable, but if you to buy the closest thing to a race you can get, there’s no better than one of the 999R’s. Or next the 1098 Tri-Colore!

I have felt that one of the true points of the Ducati was its chassis. traditional steel tube frame has lent itself to great racebikes, and it’s usage in a category as demanding as proves it’s value. The GP7 800cc frame has quite the beefiest neck of any motorcycle ever come across.

Many people don’t how strong the forces are that a chassis is subjected to, partially of the higher speeds, higher and most of all, the higher levels of race tires. I never realized before was how time and effort goes designing the race engines at While I will always Harley-Davidson to be The Motor Company, has some beautiful engines out on that could make me that.

Bottom line, is that HD builds engines, and builds racebikes.

The SuperMono above belongs to a bike like this. I have a appreciation for horizontal singles ( here or click here ), and the is the ultimate expression of a flat single. There’s a nice to this bike, also, in there was a spec racing for it here in Italy.

I emailed this photo to a boy I know, so his father could to explain to him how an engine works. I’ll be competing against him day, or maybe he’ll something even more The future is a beautiful place.

And here’s a nice Ice to stuff it into!

A rare cylinder Ducati engine, but notable here are the exhaust Like a modern day high single (think Motocross, or the exhaust flow is routed from each valve to the and then merged together later. This motore is 35 old.

Here is the Ducati the Catalunya race-winning machine by Loris Capirossi in 2003. The in the front fairing and long differentiate the bodywork from models, and also the swingarm and exhaust routing are quite from the later editions. blunt nosed masterpiece is one of my motorcycles of all time.

It is a shark, and it will bite.

isn’t Ducati’s first into building a high V4, either. Forty three ago, Fabio Taglioni this beautiful 1260cc V4, the in an attempt to take police business away from The world might be a very place today if we’d forced to contend with a like that on the streets then.

Speaking of HD, Ducati built a Cruiser. Here it is.

If going to visit the Ducati who better to speak with Pierre Terblanche, designer of the Multistrada, Sport Classic and the urban powerhouse, the Hyper-Motard! We some time discussing options for the Hyper-Motard, and while not holding my breath for a MotoLiam if things happen like I them to, I’ll definitely responsibility for my ideas!

There’s a small section some of Ducati’s victories are and the center of the Museum features a shaped room with the GP3 in it, with some inspirational playing on the back wall. If the new coming out are any indication, the trophy needs to get bigger — and
