‘First cam belts and trel­lis frame’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

“The Pan­tah de­buted Du­cati’s cam belt sys­tem, which re­placed the bevel drive. The Pan­tah was not only the first bike to use this but also the first to have a trel­lis style of frame rather than a clas­sic steel one. But it wasn’t a true trel­lis; that ar­rived in 1980 with the 600 TT2 racer.” En­gine V-twin desmo, air-cooled 4-stroke, 2-valves, 497cc Power 45bhp @ 9050prm Weight 180kg
