1959 Ducati Elite 200

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: did not get any bids at the opening ask of $17,000.

The Ducati 200 Elite was the Italian firm’s largest-displacement bike when it was introduced – a whopping 204cc when they bored out the popular 175cc engine.

The bevel-driven single produced 18 horsepower, but because the bike weighed 230 pounds it could hit 85 miles per hour and return 70 miles per gallon. It had a four-speed transmission and 18 inch wheels front and rear.

This example (VIN: DM200*155720) is an AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America) Junior First Prize Winner that was once owned by Vicki Smith, the founder of Ducati.net. Vicki’s also a member of DesmoPro, who restored this machine. The seller acquired it in 2013 for $20,000 and has covered 100 miles with it since. “The bike was put into long term storage by Revival Cycles back in 2015 and has been in my house ever since.”
