The history of this DUCATI 750 Sport Special Endurance has been fully documented since its first registration. The motorbike was modified for `Vintage Endurance races, however, it has never participated in one.
Chief engineer Fabio Taglioni developed the Ducati 750 SS upright shaft especially for long distance races. It was produced in 1973 and 1974. The British race driver Paul Smart (born in 1943) entered a race on this bike for the first time in 1972 and won the Imola 200 mile race right away. After this victory Ducati decided to produce a street version in small series. The racing mechanics made around 411 units by hand in 1973-74. It had an engine based on the 750GT with round case cover. Production was continued with a squared engine based on the 860GT, however, with a cubic capacity of 750 ccm. The bike had a low-vibration V-90° two-cylinder engine and a performance of 53 kW (72 hp) at 9500 rpm. The steel tube frame encases a DellOrto carburetor and needle bearings. Up until today the Ducati 750 SS offers an unrivaled experience.
