1988 Ducati 748cc Paso
Registration no. E755 PFR
Frame no. ZDM750P 751879
Introduced for 1986, the 750 Paso was one of the first models to emerge following Ducati's take-over by the Castiglioni family's Cagiva concern. The Paso retained the same basic desmodromic v-twin engine architecture that had first appeared on the Pantah 500SL in 1979 but added water cooling to the package. Hidden beneath all-enveloping bodywork - designed by Massimo Tamburini, late of Bimota – was a new square-tube frame. Another unusual feature was the twin-choke Weber carburettor, chosen for its emissions friendliness, while 16" wheels reflected the current trend. Suspension was by Marzocchi at the front and Öhlins at the rear, with brakes supplied by Brembo. This example of an Italian sports-tourer that can only become increasingly collectible benefits from a new air filter and cam belts, and is described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition. The machine comes complete with handbook and tools, and is offered with MoT to October 2014 and Swansea V5C document.
