Ducati 900GTS

Ducati 900GTS

The Ducati 900GTS was produced only in 1977 and ‘78 and used Ducati’s 864cc bevel drive desmodronic V-twin. It revived Ducati’s fortunes with a winning combination of speed, handling and classic design with its chunky tank and ducktail seat and was succeeded by the Darmah. Ours is a 1977 model with an electric start (for the idle motorcyclist) alongside its kickstart lever. Prepared by Pietro Di Marino, it is in its original trim. The history file shows that it was the actual bike once offered as a prize in a competition in Motorcycle Sport magazine. It’s an exhilarating sport-tourer, responsive and good fun to ride.
