From a previously posted Ducati 450 on these pages Brian wrote, “Dr Fabilio Taglioni’s first work with Ducati was in 1954 and their small cc GP bikes. The basic design increased in displacement from 125cc to the 200cc Elite in 1959. The 250cc Monza/Diane/Daytona arrived in 1961, the 350 Sebring in 1965 and finally the 450cc in 1969. Even though the GP bikes offered from the Italian manufacture had been using Desmodromic valve gear, it wasn’t until 1967 that the first road going Single received the positive valve actuating system. The 450 offers those unique pair of opening cams and closing cams.”
