Until the launch of the 175-cc SOHC bikes in 1957, Ducati’s main business consisted of a range of OHV lightweight motorcycles, and the company continued to offer these until 1968. They shared styling cues with Taglioni’s sporting designs and had OHV 125-cc engines with 6.5 horsepower. The simple OHV models like this 125 TV can often be found in handsome colours, such as this traditional Rosso Corsa example, and make excellent runabouts or pit bikes for vintage racers.
