Ducati_750GT (1973-74)

The Ducati 750GT motorcycle was introduced in 1973 as a replacement for the 750 Sport model. The design was the work of Giugiaro’s Italdesign, and featured a 748cc V-twin engine, 40mm Dell’Orto carbs, and Nippon Denso electrics. The engine produced 60 horsepower and could reach a top speed of 124 mph.

One of the most notable features of the 750GT was its desmodromic valve system, which was created by engineer Fabio Taglioni. This system eliminated the need for valve springs, resulting in more precise valve timing and better engine performance.

The 750GT also had a distinctive appearance, with its angular tank and square headlight. Its aluminum spoked wheels and Borrani rims were also unique, and added to the bike’s sporty look.

In 1974, Ducati released a “Sport” version of the 750GT, which featured a fairing, rear-set footpegs, and a sportier riding position. This model was only produced for one year, making it rare and highly sought-after by collectors.

Overall, the Ducati 750GT was a significant model in the company’s history, setting the foundation for future sport bikes and establishing Ducati as a premier manufacturer in the motorcycle world.
