5-11 Update: After not meeting reserve at $6,900, this beautiful Ducati Diana 250 is back up for sale

The sport model of Ducati’s bevel-drive singles, the Ducati Diana 250 was an absolute beauty that was able to “hunt down” the competition – this was the Italian of choice for most younger riders that couldn’t afford a big bike. MSRP back in the day? $719.

Again, this was the sportier sister to the Monza, and as such, these bikes were commonly raced. The clipons, lovely styling, and just 265 pounds of weight combined with a 249cc single that was good for 24 horsepower, propelling the Diana up to 85 miles per hour. In ’65, this bike evolved into the Mark 3 Super Sport, which got some more power and an exciting five-speed transmission.

This specific Ducati Diana 250 was restored in 2004 and has had a 5-speed transmission upgrade (original 4-speed comes with it). Other upgrades include the Mark 3 cam, SSI 27 carb, high compression piston, and more. Per original specs, it comes with Borrani wheels, Ferodo brakes, and more. Aaron K, a new reader here at Bike-urious, recently taught me about the Rockerbox show – where this bike once won best European bike.
