ANOTHER NEW MODEL FOR ’ 94
This would be the year that Ducati unleashed the 916. Designed by Massimo Tamburini it completely changed the way we looked at sportsbikes. It went well, too and handled like a dream. The 916 won four WSB titles and its successor, the 996 won another two. It is now highly collectable and used prices start from about £6k. The 916 was also voted MCN’S Bike of the Last 60 Years during a reader vote in 2015 as part of the paper’s 60th anniversary celebrations.
