When designing the Monster 696 Ducati’s engineers have spent a lot of time to carefully refine the bike’s ergonomics. Thereby elements like the fuel tank, seat height and the steering lock were especially designed to maximize comfort.

The 20th Anniversary edition is offered with a series of distinctive features such as the 1986 Ducati logo, the same colors as the 1992 Monster 900 and 90s style wing mirrors.

Ducati has revealed its new 2013 Hypermotard at the EICMA Motor Show. The new bike is powered by a 821 cc Testastretta 11° DS v-twin engine which features a longer stroke and a smaller bore than what you’d usually find among the 848 cc bikes. The unit cranks out 110 hp and 65.8 lbs.ft of torque at 7750 rpm and needs to deal with a weight of only 436.5 lbs, so you can expect to a mind-blowing speed and a groundbreaking acceleration.

The new Ducati Hypermotard is available in two trim levels, namely the base model and the SP. The standard version features Kayaba 43 mm USD forks with 6.7 inches of travel and Sachs rear shock with preload and rebound adjustments with 5.9 inches of travel.

On the other hand, the SP model comes with fully adjustable 50mm Marzocchi forks with 7.3 inches of travel, and an Öhlins rear shock with 6.9 inches of travel. The SP also comes with forged Marchesini wheels, aluminum handlebars and a special paint job.

Ducati has built so many bikes in its history, it’s hard to keep track of all the models that have been produced. In this case, the Ducati 175 Sprint is easy to remember because it offers a unique look with an engine that was built to be a certified road runner.

The 175 Spring was rebuilt for hill climbing between 1970-75, at which time it became a fixture in a lot of local Italian racing events. The bike was powered by a 249 cc SOHC single engine that was mated to a four-speed transmission. The minimalist construction of the bike made it an appropriate candidate for hill-climbs and sprints. It also came with clip-on bars, rear-set foot-pegs, a Veglia competition tachometer, Marzocchi forks, and and a single Dell’Orto VHB 29AD carburetor. Last but not least, the bike rides on Borrani alloy rims with a racing twin leading-shoe drum brake fitted to the front.

The Ducati 175 Sprint was auctioned off at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco for a price of €3,510 ($4,500 at the current rates), well below the estimated price tag of €8,000 - €12,000 ($10,300 - $15,400 at the current rates).

The Ducati 98 was one of a number of OHV pushrod bikes built to capture the entry-level market. To a certain extent, that’s why the 98 became such a popular bike back in the day. It wasn’t a weakling by any stretch of the imagination, and it didn’t cost buyers a whole lot of money.

The 98 was powered by, predictably, a 98 cc OHV single cylinder engine that produces 5.5 horsepower at 7,500 rpm with a maximum top speed of 54 mph. Not too shabby for a bike of its stature.

As one of the earliest versions of the 98 model, the bike was more than capable of bringing joy to riders the only way Ducati knows how. The example that was auctioned off at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco comes in a pale gray and blue paint finish to go with plenty of chrome details.

The Ducati 98 was bought at a price of just €2,048 ($2,600 at the current rates), just below the estimated auction price of €3,000 - €4,000 ($3,800 - $5,200 at the current rates).

Despite what we know of Ducati these days, the Italian bike maker was, at one point in a time, a developer of small variation motorcycles. One of those models was the Ducati 50 Sport, a machine that featured a 48 cc single-cylinder, two-stroke engine mated to a three-speed transmission.

The 50 Sport was one of the bikes that carried this powertrain and in doing so, it became one of the most popular bikes not just for pleasure riders, but also for competition too.

This particular 50 Sport is an example of an older restoration that remains remarkably attractive despite its age. Its silver and blue paint makes for a perfect pit bike for vintage races, or if that’s not your thing, joy rides on the open countryside.

The 50 Sport was sold at a price of €3,510 ($4,500), right around the estimated price - €2,500 - €3,500 ($3,200 - $4,500) - before it was auctioned off at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco.

The Ducati Paso first came to life in 1984 after the Cagiva brothers officially took over Ducati . Concerned that the company lacked enough product models, the new owners approached Massimo Tamburini, recently the “ta” of Bimota. They asked him to build a bike that came with a revised square-tube frame that was developed for Yamaha’s FJ1100. And so, the Ducati Paso was born.

The Paso was designed to carry a rear cylinder that was rotated so that a single Weber 44DCNF 107 carburetor could control both cylinders. In 1991, Mikuni carburettors were substituted and finally replaced by a Weber Marelli fuel injection from the 851. Unlike some of the Italian bike maker’s enduring models, the Paso line didn’t last very long as the model was discontinued in 1992.

This particular model, a 1991 907IE Desmo, is the final version of the Paso. It has a 904 cc fuel-injected SOHC Desmo V-twin engine mated to a six-speed transmission and 17" wheels replacing the undesirable 16" size, which turned in too sharply. The bike is in good original condition and with an aftermarket exhaust, it’s got some life left.

The bike was auctioned off at the 2012 RM Auction in Monaco. Estimated bid price for the bike was at €2,800 - €3,800 ($3,400 - $4,700 at the current rates), although it was only sold for €2,048 ($2,500 at the current rates).
