The Appeal

The Cagiva Ducati 650 Special Imola style is a unique blend of classic 1960s running gear and a robust 650cc SOHC cambelt desmo engine. This combination offers both aesthetic appeal and practical performance. Thius particular bike's frame, numbered 13, was supplied to Cagiva by Ducati - the vendor speculates it may have been to act as the prototype for the Cagiva Allazurra, which we're sure you'll agree is a highly tantalising prospect.

Over recent years, the bike has been meticulously maintained and upgraded with a host of high-quality components. From the custom-made aluminium tank, to the genuine Ducati Conti megaphone silencers and Marzocchi forks, every detail has been carefully considered.

The Ignitech programmable ignition system, recent Avon Roadrider tyres and a professionally overhauled starter motor, this bike is ready for both display and riding.
