Description

Introduced in 1985 the Ducati 750 F1 was a street version of the TT1 race bike that had run so successfully in the ‘Battle of the Twins’ class of formula 1 bike racing in the early 1980’s. The most ‘track’ focused road Ducati to have come out of the Bologna factory for some time it combined a light weight frame with a punchy 748cc V twin Pantah Desmo engine.

While it’s performance was not perhaps as great as its japanese rivals, the handling was absolutely sublime, combined with beautiful Italian styling and the glorious sound of the engine Ducati had produced an instant classic. This later F1B has the benefit of the later upgrades the most important being the 40mm adjustable Ceriani Forcella Italia front forks and the engine improvements of larger valves and carburettors.

Having been originally registered new in Italy this immaculate example has recently been imported to the UK and re registered with UK road documents. The original log book indicates that it has had just 3 owners in total, the last a lady owner from Modena. Showing a genuine 11,121 kms the bike has been recently been serviced and is good running order. An absolutely superb and totally original example, it comes with a UK V5C and a new MoT.
