Description

The 750 Sport's arrival coincided with the 'café racer movement catching on in the USA, and the 750 Sport gained an instant following. Designed by the legendary Fabio Taglioni, the 750 Sport underwent minor changes to its front fork and disc brake but otherwise changed little, and was only ever sold in the classic yellow/black livery shared with the Desmo singles. First of a noble line of sporting Ducati v-twins, the 750 Sport is a true landmark machine and it is one of the most sought-after of all Ducatis. Only 1,625 were made – the majority between 1973 and 1974, with a handful built for Australia in 1978 – of which only 200 were officially imported into the USA in 1974. The 750 Sport's arrival coincided with the 'café racer movement catching on in the USA, and the 750 Sport gained an instant following. This example is in superb condition, having been fully restored in 2006. The bike is accompanied by a large binder of receipts and restoration documentation.
