Ducati was established in 1926 by Antonio Ducati and his sons, initially producing electrical components. After WW2 they moved into motorcycles with the Cucciola, essentially a pushbike with a clip-on engine but by the 1960s had become associated with performance bikes selling a range of sporty 250 and 350 singles. In response to the demand for larger capacity bikes chief engineer Fabio Taglioni designed the classic V Twin bevel drive engine first used in the 1971 GT750. This proved to be an immediate success, helped considerably by Paul Smarts' win in the 1972 Imola 200 race. This started a long tradition of race-winning V twins that have gone on to dominate World Superbike racing over the years.

The 750 Sport is quite a rare model and was only manufactured for a couple of years. The bike is based on the trellis frame of the 750 F1, Ducati's definitive mid 1980s production superbike and the 750 Sport was aimed at reviving the glorious past of the bevel-twins of the early 1970s. The 748cc Desmodue engine was used as a stressed member and thanks to its 75 bhp gave excellent performance without having too extreme of a power delivery. The light weight and comfortable riding position made the 750 sport an easy to ride and intuitive motorcycle for all riders. This 1991 example, reading 34595 miles, has been part of a private collection for the last few years and was recommissioned by classic Ducati specialist Moto V, including a belt change. Run and ridden regularly by the vendor, he is only reluctantly selling to make room in his garage. Supplied with a current V5C.
