Released in 1986 and named after racer Renzo Pasolini, the Ducati Paso was a bike created from odd beginnings. Built during the tumultuous years when Ducati was owned by Cagiva, this bike was designed to compete with the up and coming Japanese superbikes of the time.

Designed by the famous Massimo Tamburini, this bike is as enveloped in plastic as it gets.

This specific example has had a custom paint job and comes with a Corbin seat, Rennsport exhaust, and had the Weber carbs (not well matched for this engine) replaced with Mikunis.

The tire situation on this bike (pre-1991) was very interesting. For a while, the 16 inch front tires were NLA. Only a few months ago, a company starting making replacements and pretty much has a lock on the market. You can find info on that here.
