I'm guessing my small town Iowa PD will NOT be using Ducatis for pursuit vehicles anytime soon.

the only yellow bike i'd ever own is a 900ss - i hate the color on every other bike- but on that bike, it looks f'ing gorgeous.

im still looking for my own 900ss- id say top 5 best looking sport bike, not top 10. Good job findng yours guys. local dealer has a 93 superlight for sale- . MAN do i want to buy that. yes, its yellow with the white frame. and MAN do i wish i had gone into finance instead of the arts so i I could afford it. anyone want to buy a kidney?

Ducati should bring back the 90's SS body with the 1100 Desmo motor, I'd trade my Monster for that.

Main reason it won't happen (at least until the origami look gets worn out): My gf's 10 year old daughter took one look at my '95 and said it looked old. Not enough sharp edges or bug-eye headlights for the younger crowd I guess. At least Ducati for the most part has never succumbed to the latest graphic craze. The SS was a class act in red or yellow when most Japanese bikes were sporting some pretty tragic graphics in the 90s. I had a ZX11 with purple wheels for God's sake.

Here is a controversial bike to stir things up. An Indian in the Italian Bike Thread you ask? Yes.

It turns out that when Indian went under in the US, they sold the rights to the name to a company that made little dirt bikes. That company manufactured bikes in Japan , Italy, and one other place I can't recall. This example, a 1973 Indian 75cc 2-stroke, was built in Italy. Some of the engine parts actually had the Ducati name on them!

I bought it, in very sad shape, from my brother for $100. Even though I had no use for a 4-speed 2-stroke bike with a top speed of 25mph, I though it deserved another lease on life. With an additional $200 investment, I returned it to the condition you see here. When I was done, I sold it to a collector for $600. I'm sure it was worth more, but I considered it a fun hobby.

So there is today's tidbit of Italian-American history.

That's about the eighth iteration of Indian. Hendee sold it to DuPont, who sold it to Ralph Rogers, then Brockhouse took it over, then Tite-Flex acquired it for awhile and it then went to Indian Sales Corp. By the time your bike came out, all that was left was the trademark.
