‘Tam­burini’s master­piece’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

“The 916 is Tam­burini’s master­piece and made Du­cati fa­mous world­wide. This bike was in the Guggen­heim Mu­seum in Amer­ica and af­ter be­ing re­turned I hid it for 17 years so that no one would sell it as it was so per­fect! Early 916s were built in Ca­giva’s Varese fac­tory as Du­cati’s Bologna fac­tory was dam­aged in a fire.” En­gine V-twin desmo, wa­ter-cooled 4-stroke, 4-valves, 916cc Power 114bhp @ 9000rpm Weight 198kg

23 years af­ter it was first shown, the 916’s styling is still an ab­so­lute knock­out
