It was 1985 when Ducati, galvanized by the fourth title in a row obtained in the F2 category of Formula TT, decided to enter the F1 class with the new specially made 750 TT1.

Entrusted to the British Tony Rutter, author of the 4 F2 victories between 1981 and 1984, the bike proved to be extremely performance but failed to beat the Honda RVF 750s which proved too performance for the Italian vehicle.

However, the TT1 thrilled the thousands of admirers of the Borgo Panigale company and this led Ducati management to build a road version that took the name of 750 F1.

Based on a tubular frame, the motorcycle implemented a twin-cylinder 750 engine powered by two Dell'Orto / Malossi PHM carburettors and managed by a five-speed gearbox.

Capable of delivering the power of 94 hp, the engine made the 750 F1 capable of reaching a top speed of 206 km / h.

Equipped with a 17-liter tank, the motorcycle was provided with a braking system consisting of two disc brakes while the suspensions consisted of a tele-hydraulic fork in the front section and a rectangular section swingarm in the rear section.

Built up to 1988 in more than 1800 specimens, the vehicle had a good commercial success thanks to good handling and ease of use.


Since I was a child I have always loved the tricolor livery of the 750 F1, and what do you think of it?

Thank you to Valentina Zanola for the cooperation
