Specifications: 98 cc OHV single cylinder, four speeds.

In 1953, the 98 Sport joined the more conservative 98 N and 98 T OHV Ducati models at the Milan show and was an immediate success. The company had not yet dabbled with Fabio Taglioni’s bevel-drive Gran Sport, and the performance of the 98 was modest, with 6.8 horsepower and a top speed of 56 mph. But it had the look of something faster, with an oil cooler in front of the engine, and that’s what counted. This example is a nice older restoration in silver and black with good paint and chrome and alloy rims.
