Post-Listing Update: This Desmo did not meet reserve, with bidding up to $11,408.
Presumably the next Ducati that will skyrocket in value (if it hasn’t already), the 450 Desmo is one of the best singles in history, thanks to the desmodromic system that allowed for 14,000 rpm engine speeds and lovely styling. For some details on what made this bike a “Memorable Motorcycle”, check out this article on Motorcycle USA.
This example was restored 20 years ago and has apparently been rarely used since. It comes with its original (Italian) paperwork and historic register.
