Ducati introduced the 600TL Pantah at the Milan show in 1981 to complement the 500 and 600SL sports models. It is a roadster with a square headlight, tank and seat and different instruments, including a fuel gauge. Cagiva took over Ducati in 1984 and replaced the Pantahs with their own Alazurra design, making this model a rare find for any Ducati collector.
As far as power is concerned the Ducati 600TL Pantahis is equipped with a 583 cc SOHC Desmo V-twin engine. The engine’s power is kept in check by a five speeds transmission. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the Pantah was the first of the belt-driven camshaft Ducati motors, the first generation of the current Ducati V twins.

In sound condition, this bike was presented at an auction. The motorcycle has an estimated price of €3.000-€4.000.

A MV Agusta Brutale 910R was sold at a price of €6.435 to an auction. The Brutale 910R was powered by 909 hp inline-four cylinder DOHC 16 valve engine paired with a six-speed cassette type transmission.

In term of suspensions, the bike was fitted with a front 50 mm Marzocchi R.A.C fork and a rear Single Sachs shock absorber.

The Brutale was offered as both the 910S and 910R, of which the 910R was the more desirable of the two, featuring a number of upgrades. The Brutale offered here is one such “R” models, equipped with the requisite Brembo brakes, competition grade suspension and a special paint scheme. Minor engine modifications have also contributed to a better response and throttle sensitivity. With only 1,140 km showing on its odometer, this bike is virtually new and is presented in superior condition, commensurate with its low mileage. Equally at home on a country road or a city street, this is undoubtedly one of the finest such motorcycles in the world.

A unique 1968 Ducati 350 Corsa Replica was auctioned with an estimated price of €14.000-€18.000. The motorcycle is in good condition and is finished in a classy red paint. Power comes from a 340 cc SOHC single engine which is combined with a five speeds transmission.

Initially displayed at the 1967 Cologne show, the wide-case Ducati singles were launched in 1968 in 250-cc and 350-cc models and Scrambler and Mark 3 sport bike designations. The 350 engine shared the same specifications as the 350 Sebring and Mach 1/S racer and a 10-to-1 compression ratio. The range would soon boast Taglioni’s Desmo engine, and the two models are hard to distinguish, both proving solid, competent race bikes, with excellent brakes and handling.

The bike on offer was rebuilt in 1995 in its present configuration as an historic racer. The engine has twin spark plugs and twin distributors, alloy rims, twin rear shock absorbers, special clutch, single Dell’Orto 36-mm pumper carburettor, competition exhaust, twin leading shoe front brake and Veglia competition tachometer.

A vintage Ducati 900 Mike Hailwood Replica was auctioned with an estimated price of €8.000-€12.000. The motorcycle was launched in 1979 and is powered by a 973 cc Desmo SOHC V-Twin engine mated on a five speeds transmission. The MHR S2 model on offer was in good unrestored condition, and its eye-catching red and green fairing combined with its gold Campagnolo alloy rims will ensure that it continues to stand out.

When Mike Hailwood returned from New Zealand to the Isle of Man TT in 1978 on a privateer Ducati 900 SS, he was 38 years old and had not raced there in 11 years. His runaway win set the stage for the most popular version of the 900 SS, the MHR.

The red, white and green Mike Hailwood Replica 900 SS was introduced in 1979 and was an immediate success. Ducati tweaked the model several times to make it more user-friendly. The fairing became a two-piece in 1981, making service matters easier, and side panels were added to cover the battery and rear carburettor. In 1983, the Series 2 MHR included an electric start, an improved three-dog gearbox, Oscam wheels to take tubeless tyres, a narrower two-piece fairing, new alternator and a hydraulic dry clutch. Some bikes had Silentium mufflers, while others retained Contis.

A classic 1993 Ducati Troll Supertwin was auctioned with an estimated price of €10.000-€15.000. After it was launched on the market, the motorcycle managed to gain pretty fast the “icon” status and conquered the heart of many riders. It is powered by a 904 cc SOHC Desmo V-twin unit mated on a six speeds transmission.

Built for the Sound of Singles series in Europe, only 67 were constructed from 1993-97, and Robert Holden placed 2nd in the Isle of Man TT on one. The “look” was so striking that Dutch company Troll offered a Supertwin Troll kit for your 900 SS—you provided the engine, and Troll came up with a rolling chassis, stylish body work and frame. However, it was very expensive, and only 13 were built. The bike on offer is No. 1 and the only one constructed with Ohlins suspension. In bright yellow, it is as new and an unrepeatable opportunity for the serious collector.

The Ducati 500L Pantah Desmo was auctioned with an estimated price of €3.000-€4.000. At the heart of the motorcycle lies a 499 cc SOHC Desmo V-twin engine which is mated on a five speeds transmission. The motorcycle has a pretty interesting history behind it and is one of Ducati’s iconic models.

At the end of the 1970s, Ducati was in trouble. The vertical twins weren’t selling, so management went to designer Fabio Taglioni to see if he had any ideas. He handed them plans for another ground-breaking V-twin, based on his 1973 Armaroli DOHC Grand Prix racer.

The new bike was the belt-drive camshaft 500-cc V-twin Desmo Pantah, and its racing version, the TT2, would win four Formula 2 world championships between 1981-84. Taglioni’s new engine was smaller and quieter than the outgoing bevel-drive twins and was fitted in a trellis frame. The belt drive would be a feature of Ducati engines from that day forth. The Pantah’s electronics were by Nippon Denso, brakes were by Brembo, and its top speed was about 120 mph. The bike on offer is in good original condition with two-into-one exhaust, and many collectors prefer the early, smoother fairing.

An old Ducati 748 Biposto was auctioned with an estimated price of €3.000-€4.000 (the bike was sold at a final price of €2.925). The motorcycle’s specifications included a 748 cc DOHC liquid-cooled Desmo V-twin paired with a six speeds transmission. The bike on offer was an original example in red with gold wheels.

The Ducati 748 was launched in 1995 as the smaller sister to the 916 and eligible to compete in the 600 Supersport class against the 600-cc four-cylinder Japanese racers. It was available as an SP and a dual seat Biposto; the SP generated 104 horsepower at 11,000 rpm, while the Biposto used milder Strada cams and produced 98 horsepower. The SP topped out at 154 mph, the Biposto at 151 mph. A number of riders have observed that the 748 engine is actually sweeter and likes to rev more freely than the torquier 916, which probably accounted for the model’s popularity.

A classic Ducati 900 Super Sport was auctioned with an estimated price of €2.800-€3.800 and was sold with at a final price of €1.755.

In a series of strokes, Ducati had divided its liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, four-valve competition department from its two-valve, air-cooled street bike fans. The 900 SS was so well sorted that it changed very little until it was replaced in 1997. The 900 Super Sport remains a definitive Ducati experience, and many have been kept for lengthy periods by proud owners.

The troublesome Weber carburettor was replaced with Mikuni flat slides in 1990, and after this tweak performance almost matched the fuel injected 907 IE Paso. The rake was steepened to 25 degrees, a shorter swing-arm reduced the wheelbase, and longer rear shock quickened the steering. Showa adjustable front forks replaced the Marzocchis, and bigger Brembo disc brakes were fitted. The clip-on bars were raised and the foot-pegs lowered.

A classic Ducati 750 Super Sport was put on sale at an auction with an estimated price of €15.000-€20.000. This bike is in nice condition with good paint and chrome and alloy wheel rims.

When the 401 round-case 750 Ducati Super Sports were completed in 1974, two-strokes looked like they were going to dominate Formula 750, with the Yamaha TZ 700 leading the way. Ducati elected to contest endurance racing, which did not restrict engine size. They bumped up the 750 SS engine by using a pair of 450 racing pistons to create an 864-cc motor—the 900 SS.

In 1975, both the 900 SS and 750 SS used the square-case engine, with the 860 sleeved down to make the 750 SS. They were basically the same bare-bones production racers as the 1974 models, with right-side shift, a small CEV taillight, fibreglass gas tank, Conti pipes, open bellmouth carburettors and no turn signal provisions.

Only 246 ‘900 Super Sports’ and 249 ‘750 Super Sports’ were built, and an amazing 198 of the 500 went to Australia. The 1976 Super Sports would be civilised, with left-side shifting, steel gas tanks, carburettor air cleaners and quieter Lanfranconi mufflers (though Contis would usually be included in the crate).

Any 1975 750 Super Sport would be a rare find indeed these days, and this model is always sought after by serious Ducati collectors.

As the 1970s wound down for Ducati, designer Fabio Taglioni found himself back in favour and produced a rabbit out of the hat. It was the 500-cc belt-drive camshaft V-twin Desmo Pantah, whose racing sibling, the TT2, would hand Ducati four Formula 2 world championships between 1981-84. Taglioni’s design was significantly smaller and quieter than the outgoing bevel-drive twins, as well as much cheaper to build. When the engine was boosted to 600 cc in 1980, the few teething troubles were solved, and the 600SL gained a better fairing and a hydraulic clutch. Electronics were by Nippon Denso, brakes were by Brembo, and top speed was increased slightly from the 500SL, at around 124 mph.

One of these classic models was put on sale with an estimated price of €3.500-€5.000. The bike on offer is finished in the distinctive silver fairing with red inserts and gold Campagnolo alloy rims, presented in good original condition aside from its modified fairing. At the heart of the motorcycle lies a 583 cc SOHC Desmo V-twin engine which sends power to the rear wheel through a five speeds.
