Started in 1926, Ducati offered their first original motorcycle dubbed T2 in 1946. Driven by a 2-liter engine, the motorcycle reached the top speed of 60 km/h.

In 1952, the Ducati Cruiser showed up. Powered by an 8-liter engine, the motorcycle boasted a number of revolutionary features, including an automatic gearbox and an electric starter.

In 1956, the company developed a unique gas distribution mechanism dubbed Desmo. The very essence of it was controlling the process of raising and lowering the valves that ensures their timely opening and closing at all revolutions of the engine crankshaft. The Desmo system solved several important tasks at once. Well, it excluded the possibility of collision and destruction of the piston with the valve, their overheating and subsequent failure, and also neutralized the likelihood of premature ignition of the fuel-air mixture. The Desmo system greatly increased the reliability and efficiency of the powerplant but it also resulted in the final cost. The Desmo mechanism has become a real hallmark of the brand. It’s still utilized in their models.

In the 1970s, the company managed to design a camshaft with a timing belt. Secondly, in the manufacture of cylinders, ordinary iron was replaced by an aluminum alloy with a nickel-silicon coating. Thirdly, Ducati developed the famous tubular frame made of chrome-molybdenum steel.

In the 2010s, the company keeps expanding its product line, seizing new niches in the market, and introducing innovations in their products. If you are eager to learn more about their new motorcycles, look through this 2020 ducati review. Perhaps, it will help you to choose the best motorcycle from this company.

Ducati Diavel
(https://bike.net/Duca…iavel_2011)

Ducati Diavel is one of the first representatives of a new class of sport cruisers. The 2019 ducati motorcycle has a technical layout similar to the very powerful city bikes but with a longer base of 2230 mm. The 1.2-liter Testastretta 11 engine demonstrates the maximum output of up to162 hp at 9250 rpm.

The 2019 Ducati Diavel design is built around the tubular spatial steel frame into which the powerplant is mounted. Besides this, the bike features an electrically adjustable stiffener and damper suspension as well as Brembo's effective monoblock brakes with four calipers.

That’s a top-end version of street bikes from the company with a stunning design, high-tech frame, and an updated engine. The motorcycle comes with the most advanced proprietary DSP safety package, and three riding modes.

At 9250 rpm, the latest bike’s engine shows 147 hp. The motorcycle is equipped with the powerful Brembo M50 brakes and catch carbon details.

Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer
(https://bike.net/Duca…Racer_2017)

That’s a modern interpretation of the "old school" racing motorcycle conception. You’ll be delighted by its golden wheels, an elegant drop-shaped tank and a handlebar with round mirrors creating a special vintage impression.

The sufficient power is ensured by the L-shaped 73-hp motor that transmits its power via a 6-speed gearbox. A spectacular stainless steel silencer makes the heart of this motorcycle sound in a new way. Another distinctive feature of the 2020 ducati motorcycle is a saddle with an aerodynamic casing that covers the passenger seat when the driver rides alone.

The latest bike from Ducati demonstrates great maneuverability due to its rigid frame structure and reliable braking systems with semi-floating discs as well as Monobloc Brembo radial calipers.
