The history of the Ducati motorcycle company dates back to 1926 in the Italian town of Bologna.
Initially, the company was created for the production of capacitors, speakers and other radio components needed at that time for the actively developing radio industry.
There were no thoughts about production and even more about the development of new models of motorcycles.
The originality of the development consisted of a ribbed crankcase, which contained a crankshaft and a two-stage gearbox and was cast with the cylinder in a single block.
The overhead valve engine was capable of developing 1 hp.
The first enterprise in a new capacity brought the company its first success.
Bicycle outboards became a bestseller: a four-stroke power unit equipped with two gears, for Italy with its mountainous landscape it was a precious find.
In the four years from 1946-50, Ducati produced and sold more than 200,000 engines, more than all competitors combined.
The first debut took place in 1950. It becomes a 65 cc Ducati 60 Sport motorcycle with an overhead valve engine, the power of which reached 2.5 hp.
The engine differed from the Cucciolo in its traditional valve timing, had a cast iron cylinder and was mated to a 3-speed gearbox. The engine was mounted on a classic backbone frame.
The total weight of the motorcycle was 48 kg. and was capable of accelerating to 70 km / h.
Unexpected news in 1985 amazed everyone - Ducati was taken over by the Italian concern Cagiva, and the production of motorcycles was discontinued, only the production of engines for Cagiva motorcycle models remained.
The result is the first joint motorcycle Cagiva Ala Azzurra with 349 and 583 cc Ducati engines.
But all the same, the Italian concern Cagiva, which faced serious financial difficulties in the 90s, was unable to retain the controlling stake in Ducati, and was acquired by the American financial group Texas Pacific Group.
