Introduced for 1989, the Paso 906 was a development of the preceding 750, one of the first models to emerge following Ducati's take-over by the Castiglioni family's Cagiva concern, and enjoyed a similarly improved level of equipment and build quality. The bigger 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. Like the 750, the 906 featured a square-tube frame, hidden beneath all-enveloping bodywork penned by Massimo Tamburini, late of Bimota, while another 750 carry-over was the twin-choke Weber carburettor, chosen for its emissions friendliness. Suspension on the 906 was by Marzocchi at both ends (the 750 had an Öhlins rear shock absorber) with brakes supplied by Brembo. Both Pasos were fitted with the then fashionable 16" wheels but only the 906 enjoyed the benefit of a sixth speed in the gearbox.
This original and un-restored 906 Paso has always been maintained by the well-known Ducati dealer Biggelaar in Oisterwijk, Holland. The machine was in use until its purchase by the vendor in 2013 and is described as in generally excellent condition. This charismatic and collectible Italian sports-tourer is offered with Netherlands registration document.
