Ducati 851 Strada tricolor monoposto from 1988, only 300 units built with only 2398 kms since new !!
The 851 was officially presented at the Milan Motor Show in 1987 and inaugurated a brand new engine : the Desmoquattro. This pantah derivative uses four valves per cylinder and abandons air cooling in favour of liquid cooling and is grafted with a Weber electronic fuel injection system that produces 105 horsepower. As usual, braking is entrusted to Brembo and the suspensions come from the famous Marzocchi.
For its homologation in the Superbike championship, Ducati built five hundred motorcycles in 1988, two hundred 851 Pista and three hundred 851 Strada approved on the road, both series were proudly flanked by the colours of the transalpine nation.
