Ducati A Long History of Design and Success

Ducati Motor S.p.A is the manufacturer of Ducati It is based in Bologna, Italy and is owned by Audi through its Lamborghini. The Ducati history way back in 1926 when Cavalieri Ducati and his three founded Societa Scientifca Brevetti Ducati. They condensers, radio components and tubes and by 1935 constructed a factory.

Originally Ducati was not motorcycles but after World War II, Farinelli’s small firm Turin called SIATA a small push-rod type that can be mounted to bicycles. SIATA wanted to sell the Ducati went into and so the first Ducati motorcycle into production. The first model the Cucciolo was a 98 kg bicycle a 48 cc engine.

The top speed was a mere 40 mph and the 15 mm gave the biker an amazing 240 The Cucciolo brand was later in favor of the model 55M and 65TL.

The of Its Motorcycle Design

As early as the motorcycle world has been by the design features of Ducati At the Milan show of that year, Ducati introduced the motorcycle and cruiser. It had a four engine and was described as the most new machine.

Through the years however, is known for the best high motorcycles. The motorcycles have capacity, 90 degree V-twins on four-…. The configuration is referred to by as the L-twin due to the fact that one is horizontal and one is vertical, forming the letter “L.” The main why Ducatis or “Ducs” as they are called have that advance is mainly the valve

All Ducatis use the desmodromic valve Unlike conventional valve used by other motorcycle the desmodromic valves are closed a separate cam lobe and lifter. The end is a more radical performance due to the opening and closing of the valves.

The of valve-float is eliminated at the high rpm and there is no loss of power as Although this patented is nearly 50 years in the Ducatis, still serve the purpose.

The and Current Production Models

The of Ducati motorcycles will not be without Fabio Taglioni who was the designer since the 1950s. The were very exceptional and from the single-cylinder machines won the street races to the bigger during the 1980s. In 1979 the was introduced with the engine in the 1990s and fitted in the Ducati or SS series.

Modern Ducati engines are all of the Pantah. The toothbed belt is to actuate the valves are the trademark. choose the emblem of courage and that we see in all Ducatis.

This was a sign of respect and admiration for Baracca, a fighter pilot and during World War I who died a raid into enemy in 1918.

The Ducati Engine

All the Ducati motorcycles produced the years 1950 onwards to any of the categories mentioned here. The configuration comes in single-cylinder, and the current four-cylinder models. The cylinder models started the 48 cc and 65 cc Cucciolo which was pullrod

The 98 cc and 125 cc models were pushrod while the two-… single engines in 50, 80, 90 and 125 cc configurations were actuated spring valved The next group the 239 cc, 250 cc, 350 cc and 450 cc were valved but bevel actuated. The cc was also desmodromic valved but actuated.

The two cyclinder engines were in configurations. For instance the V-twin 750 cc and 860 cc was bevel actuated. But there are 750 cc, 860cc and 973 cc that are desmo bevel actuated.

Since most of the engines come in desmo valved, belt A parallel twin engine was in 125 cc, 350 cc and 500 cc GTL which was spring valved, actuated. Another parallel engine in 500 cc and called 500SD was valved but chain actuated.

The cyclinder engines come in a configuration. The V4 Desmosedici is desmo and gear actuated. Another V4 where only two were made was called Apollo and was valved but pushrod activated. The engines have a mix of engine and have different names.

Desmodue Evoluzione, Testastretta 11, Evoluzione, and Superquadro. The current are all desmodromic but are a mix of air cooled and liquid engines. This is proof of innovation to achieve engine superiority.
