    Now that Ducati is building off road motorcycle, is the Elefant ever coming back?

    Not sure what engine is in this bike looks like a Vtwin not a Ltwin?

    That is obviously a V-twin. Nice design.

    Yeah someone did a very good job here, but look close and that engine just can't be right. The crankshaft is right where the two cylinders meet, right? Still a nice photoshop.

    Cagiva is a Castiglioni holding company, they currently own MV Agusta and the Mito, Aermacchi and Moto Morini brands. At various times they've also owned Ducati and Husqvarna.

    If they ever did a new Elefant I'd imagine it would make use of one of the modern MV triples

    The funny thing is Cagiva bought Ducati in 1985 but kept the Ducati brand that was better recognized outside Italy. The more I read the more confuse I get! Seems like Lamborghini has it now or is it Audi?:dirtdog

    Audi through Lambroghini. It's all under the VW Auto Group (VAG), anyway.
