• 'The most starling 750 Yet!' Cycle Magazine
• Kept in climate-controlled evnironment
• Well preserved condition

Designed by the legendary Fabio Taglioni, Ducati's first road-going v-twin - the 750 GT - arrived in 1971. Lacking the resources of larger Far Eastern rivals, Ducati had made the most of what it already possessed to create one of the all-time great post-war motorcycles. A 90-degree vee, the engine looked like two of the Bologna firm's bevel-drive overhead-cam singles on a common crankcase (which in essence it was) though the coil valve springs represented a departure from Ducati's traditional hairpins. The 90-degree layout made for exceptional smoothness and a lengthy wheelbase, a handicap more apparent than real that failed to stop the fine-handling Ducatis notching up a succession of wins in Formula 750 events, commencing with Paul Smart's famous victory at Imola in 1972. The October of the same year, the GT750 made a great impression to the Cycle magazine writers, considering the GT as "The Most Startling 750 Yet!".
This Ducati has been kept in a climate controlled garage for a number of years and appears to be in a well preserved condition.
