Specifications: 65 cc, OHV single cylinder, three speeds.

Even as Cucciolo motors were powering bicycles across Italy, designer Giovanni Fiorio was developing Ducati’s first real motorcycle, the 60 of 1949. The second type 60 Sport was introduced in March 1950. The basic OHV, pushrod design would stay in production until the 125-cc Cadet of 1967. With square dimensions of 44x43 mm and a three-speed transmission, it produced 2.25 horsepower at 5,500 rpm. The touring 65 T was released in 1952. The bike on offer is a nice older restoration with very good paint and detail work and is very nicely presented.
