Ducati’s first big sportbikes – the superbikes of their era – date back to the early 1970’s. They raced and they won; they were the joy of the most sport-oriented and fanatical riders, and now they are sought-after collectors’ items. Now, as then, they are seen as fine examples of style and performance, but above all, they are magnificent motorcycles to look at and to ride.
These bikes were made with the heart and the head, so they were minimalist machines with few frills but plenty of thrills to ride.
It was an era when every detail and each component was as important as the overall impression of the complete motorcycle. From the lustre of an Engine: case to the shape of a valve cover, from the elegant routing of a fuel line to the graphic treatment of the livery, every element was important in its individual form and in harmony with the total finished creation. These were motorcycles to race, motorcycles to ride, motorcycles to inspire. They were the awesome sport motorcycles that built the art and culture of Italian motorcycling.
The 1970’s was a period when manufacturers were pouring-out a seemingly endless string of new models. One or two became classics; most went through life unnoticed, and then were forgotten; but no-one ever forgot the gorgeous Ducati big bore race bikes or their road-going counter parts which fuelled the fantasies of a whole generation.
