I bought a '75 Ducati in '79 and took it to Bike Week. I'd come out of a bar and see H-D guys shaking their heads. I heard coments such as ,"Fucking Polish Harley" and " One carb here and another way back there , that'll never work."
One guy at a campground who was the one the rest of his group looked to for mechanical advice was into the Ducati. He liked the 90 degree spread of the cylinders , the OHC and the seperate carbs.The rest of his "Bros" thought it was just funny looking.
The Motor Company knew it's buyers and chose not to alienate them.
