  • Rare cafe racer version of Ducatis 'Sport Classic' range
  • Fitted with alloy wire wheels and a Termignoni exhaust
  • In a private collection since 2017, supplied with a V5C

In 1971 Ducati’s chief engineer Fabio Taglioni designed the classic V-twin bevel-drive engine first used in the GT750. This proved to be an immediate success, helped considerably by Paul Smart’s win in the 1972 Imola 200 starting a tradition of race-winning V-twins that have gone on to dominate WSB racing over the years. The Sport Classics range of retro-styled Ducatis was the product of Ducati's renowned design chief Pierre Terblanche and was introduced to commemorate the famous victory that signalled the manufacturer's arrival as a big bike manufacturer. Three different 'Classic' models were produced in limited numbers, styled after Paul Smart’s race-winning bike and all based on similar frames powered by the Desmodue 992cc air-cooled 90° V-twin Ducati 1000 Dual Spark engine.

This rare cafe racer version of the Paul Smart tribute 'Sport Classic' range has been part of a small private collection for the last seven years, only being offered for sale now to make room in the garage. Finished in classic Ducati Red with spoked wheels with alloy rims and a Termignoni exhaust together with Marzocchi upside down forks, it's powered by a simple and easy to maintain air-cooled two-valve 1000 DS engine. A very useable future classic that's still appreciating in value, supplied with a current V5C.
