Frame no. 98448
Engine no. 103302
Designed by Fabio Taglioni, Ducati's first overhead-camshaft single - the 100 Gran Sport - appeared on the racetrack in 1954 and soon proved unbeatable in its class. A pair of 175cc roadsters was introduced for the 1956 season, the sports version of which was capable of more than 80mph, an astonishing achievement at the time and one that helped establish the 'giant killing' reputation long enjoyed by Ducati's miniature masterpieces. In 1959 the engine capacity was increased to 200cc (actually 204cc) for the Elite and 200SS models and then in 1961 came the first road-going 250s, the Monza tourer and Diana sports model, the latter being sold as the 'Daytona' in the UK. Mechanically the duo were virtually identical, though the Diana's 'hotter' cams gave it a slight performance edge with a top speed of 85mph to the Monza's 80.

An older restoration, this 250 Monza was purchased by the current vendor a few months ago from its first owner, and since then has undergone further partial restoration. Substantially original (with the obvious exception of the silencer) and said to run well, the machine is offered with Netherlands registration cards.
