Ducati 900SS

Ducati 900SS
Of all the 1970s SuperSports motorbikes, the Ducati 900SS is, arguably, the most pure of purpose.  Unburdened by luxuries like an electric start and pillion seat, the 900SS roars 'race-bred' as loudly as its Conti pipes.

Ducati's legendary desmodromic valves took pride of place within the 900's rorty V-twin engine, solidly piling on the revs - enough of them to produce a very respectable 132mph. 

And yet such technical prowess seems almost to fade into the shade, in the light of its visual virtues.  Achingly beautiful, styling-wise the Ducati 900SS is probably beyond compare.
