The Ducati brand is named after three brothers, who originally produced radio parts, and moved into motorcycle production in 1950 using an engine originally developed by small Turin firm SIATA called the Cucciolo. From the first 60cc Ducati with a top speed of 40mph, the company started to produce larger bikes in the early 1950s, followed by the motorcycle side of the company splitting to become Ducati Meccanica SPA.
The Ducati name is most associated by four-stroke desmodromic v-twins, and trellis steel frames. The most iconic of these in recent years has been the range started by the Ducati 851 in 1987, which then evolved through the Ducati 888, and into the Ducati 916,996 and 998 before eventually being replaced by the Ducati 999.
In addition to the sportsbikes, which have been closely linked to sporting success, the Ducati range has expanded beyond sports and touring bikes, starting with the immensely popular naked Monster range, and now including the Hypermotard, Streetfighter and the new Ducati Diavel musclebike.
Sporting success has always been important to Ducati, with a long and distinguished record in Word Superbikes since 1990, and British Superbikes since 1988. The popularity of the 916 in the UK was helped by three WSB titles for Cal Fogarty, and was followed by WSB championships for Neil Hodgson and James Toseland on the Ducati 999. The 996 and 998 also delivered five successive BSB championships from 1999 to 2003.
In 2007 the brand also claimed its first MotoGP championship with Casey Stoner and the Ducati Desmosedici GP7. And if that wasn’t enough, 2011 saw the pairing of Italian GP legend Valentino Rossi with Ducati for the first time.
