‘The first Du­cati mo­tor­cy­cle’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

“Three years af­ter the Cuc­ci­olo, Du­cati built its first mo­tor­cy­cle, the Du­cati 60. Be­fore the war, Du­cati had built elec­tronic items, but af­ter the war peo­ple didn’t need such lux­u­ries and in­stead wanted cheap trans­port as Italy’s travel in­fra­struc­ture was de­stroyed. Much like Honda with its Cub, Du­cati mo­bi­lized a gen­er­a­tion with the 60.” En­gine Sin­gle-cylin­der, air-cooled 4-stroke, 2-valves, 48cc Power 2.5bhp @ 5000rpm Weight 44kg
