All About Italy (USA) - - Italy On The Road | All About Italy -

An­other Du­cati cre­ation is the 750 SS model, with an en­gine de­rived from the GT 750: it also adopted the di­men­sions of the car­bu­re­tor valves. The crank­shaft had con­nect­ing rods worked with two re­in­force­ment ribs around the head. It readapted the pis­tons and slim frame of the 750 Sport, but us­ing a fork with a cen­tral pin. The 5.3-gal­lon fuel tank, the tail and the body panel were de­rived from the win­ning mo­tor­cy­cles in Imola. The cho­sen color scheme em­ployed con­trast­ing blue and sil­ver. Pro­duced in three se­ries from 1973 to 1977, the 750 SS weighed 412 lbs., had a pedal ig­ni­tion and was fed by two “Del­lorto PHM” car­bu­re­tors with a 1 ½-inch dif­fuser: it could reach a speed of 137 mph. The clutch had mul­ti­ple oil-bath discs and a five-speed trans­mis­sion.
