Description: 1971 DUCATI 250 MARK 3 - no reserve
Carte grise française
Cadre n° 108811
Moteur n° 101781

- Technique brillante et raffinée
- Machine élégante et attachante
- Bonne présentation
- sans réserve

L'arrivée en 1954 chez Ducati de Fabio Taglioni comme ingénieur en chef va marquer de façon indélébile la personnalité de la marque italienne. En 1968, les monocylindres de la marque vont connaître une évolution marquante, avec les versions dites "à carter large".

La 250 Mark 3 que nous présentons est dotée de la distribution classique par arbre à cames en tête commandé par arbre et couple conique. Achetée en 1992 par son actuel propriétaire, elle a bénéficié par la suite d'une restauration par un spécialiste Ducati et n'a, depuis, que peu roulé. Elle porte une plaque d'importation française de 1971 et, selon elle, la moto est équipée de son moteur d'origine. Le compteur de cette attachante moto affiche 2 653 km. Avec ses compteurs sur le T de fourche, son réservoir bicolore effilé, son élégant monocylindre et son pot chromé de marque Silentium, elle correspond à l'archétype de la petite moto italienne brillante, dont la technique raffinée lui permet des performances stupéfiantes.

- Technically outstanding
- Elegant, charming machine
- Good presentation
- No reserve

Fabio Taglione's arrival at Ducati in 1954 as chief engineer had a big impact on the character of the Italian marque. In 1968 the single cylinder models of the marque underwent a dramatic evolution, with versions known as 'wide case'.

The 250 Mark 3 on offer has the traditional set up with overhead cam driven by vertical shaft and bevel drive. It was bought in 1992 by its current owner, who subsequently had the car restored by a Ducati specialist and has ridden it little since. According to its French import plaque from 1971, it retains the original engine. The odometer of this appealing motorcycle reads 2,653 km. With dials on the T of the fork, slender two-tone fuel tank, elegant single cylinder and chrome Silentium exhaust, this machine is a perfect example of the stunning little Italian bike, with sophisticated engineering that gives it an outstanding performance.
