Not a Ducati, but a general idea of what works. This bike is based on a Yamaha XT 600 and modified by Radical Ducati from Spain. The tank is from a '65 Ducati 250 Scrambler.
It shows what a little imagination and work can do.

No, I mean more of a new, modern, road-worthy incarnation of the SuperMono but with a half fairing this time. A small, light, and SIMPLE, single cyl, sport bike to honor Paul Smart and his past victories for Ducati.

Or maybe even one thats retro styled...think single cyl 750SS (70's model)


Beyond a sport bike though, the scrambler idea is a good one...Ducati should bite. Just make it cool, affordable, simple, light, tough, and capable. Then make available every conceivable farkle...to heavy it up again.

If they (we) really want to keep it simple, why does it have to be a Desmo? Thinking outside the Ducati Tradition, it would be nice to have a competent design that an owner could service without having to remove the cams. It doesn't need to be a bevel drive either. This is not outside of Ducati's tradition, valve springs are well proven these days and Ducati could consider going all the way if it's going to be a clean sheet design. It can still look and have all the flair of a Ducati without having the attendant complications.

If it's going to be the basis of a world bike, make it service ready for the average owner.

They have already shown that a bike doesn't need a dry clutch or be a superbike to be a Ducati. I find nothing wrong with making something more dirt oriented fully accessible to the home wrench or having features outside of the Ducati "tradition". If it's a true dual sport, it already steps outside of the usual Ducati boundary.

Ducati hasn't made a bevel since the 80's. The cams do not need to be removed from a 2 valve for maintenance. In fact they're pretty simple to work on. I'd much rather maintain a desmodue than most any 4 cylinder Japanese motor, and that includes valve adjustment. It's a simple, torquey, robust, reliable motor.

The problem is that Desmodromics and Ducati are joined at the hip as far as most consumers are concerned. I'm not sure if the current market would tollerate a non Desmo Duc.

That said, I'd like to see one though. I agree there is nothing wrong with a shim under bucket arrangement. Especially if it has gear driven cams.

If they built my earlier suggestion of a Paul Smart edition, it would have to have a desmo head. Not sure if the expense would be justified with different arrangements on different models though.

When I was a kid, a guy across the street had a 450 thumper Ducati. We called him Ducati John. I guess this was around 1972.

Wish I had a picture.....

This is the best Ducati I've seen, I could be tempted by something along these lines.
