Organisers of the third edition of the Imola 200 Revival event have held a press conference at the Ducati factory in Bologna, Italy, announcing this year’s exciting event at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari Circuit of Imola, 21-23 September. The famous race event of the 70s will not only be relived in an authentic gathering [...]
Putting a Ducati into a music video is always a good idea and choosing a 1974 Ducati 750SS is a great one. That’s what Australian quintet Dappled Cities chose for their music video for ‘Run with the Wind’, a single from their forthcoming fourth studio album. Pity about what happens at around the 3:52 mark.
One of these looks just like the other. This pair of 1975 Ducati bevel twins, the 750 and 900SS, are almost identical. Can you spot the differences?
The guy who used to own this 1973 Ducati 750 Sport decided to start making a ‘custom’ out of it. He should have been arrested. Luckily the folks at Back to Classics got hold of it and performed a full restoration.
As we race to the opening round of the DMG AMA Pro Racing championship at the iconic Daytona circuit this weekend lets remember the first ever Ducati victory.

Ian Gowanloch has legendary status in the Ducati community and not only in his home country of Australia. His farm in the foothills of the snowy mountains is home to 10, 40 foot shipping containers full of Ducati parts making it the Ducati Happy Farm.
We take for granted that every Ducati you can buy today has desmodromic valve actuation (yes even the otherwise icon breaking 1199 Panigale). For the longest time though, Ducati road bikes had valve spring actuation. This 1967 Sport Corsa Demo 350 was the turning point that led to desmodromics hitting the streets.
Back to Classics has a fully restored Ducati 900 Mike Hailwood Replica for sale.
Following the success of the Ducati 1955 Gran Sport, the very first design effort by one Ing. Fabio Taglioni, Ducati decided to enter the 125 Grand Prix World Championship with a double overhead cam version of the bevel single. This motorcycle is that first prototype GP racer, the Bialbero.
