Condor Directory

Approximately 3000 Ducati-engined Condor 350s were built between 1973 and 1978, and some 1500 of these were still in use by the Swiss army as late as 2001 when they were replaced, it is believed, with BMW F650 Rotax-engined singles. Earlier model Condors used French AMC engines and Swiss MAG powerplants, among others.

Ignition coil needed
Ducati Condor
I have enjoyed riding my Swiss Condor A350 for over a decade. Now I need a new starter coil. Does anyone have a compatible replacement for a 1976 condenser and a coil with the stamp reading "Ducati Elettrotecnica 320106 6Vcc 2207" on the bottom? Thank you!

thank you for responding, i will get pictures this weekend! can you tell me if this 350 condor needs a key or is it just a kickstart, sometimes i wish i was a guy!!! i dont see an ignition switch.
thank you kindly,
lisa arthur

There must be some type of on/off switch or kill switch, Lisa, possibly on the handlebars. Ed.
I think the ignition key is in the headlight. The black plastic doover - you'd think I'd remember as I rode one for a couple of years back in the 60s. It's battery coil ignition with a 6v system, most likely, so check the battery has charge, put fresh fuel in it, prime the carbie and give the kick starter a few prods. If it still has compression, there's a good chance it will start. It may try to break your ankle first, tho. Ed.

Condor A580
I wish to sell my A580 Condor and would appreciate any advice on value etc. The machine is in original running condition and only aprox 20,000kms from new
I will attempt to send a photo of my Condor, but forgot to write down the engine and chassis nos which I remember are in the 7000s - possibly a clue to year of manufacture. I say attempt as I live in Bali and frequently our internet connection is not so good! Here goes and I will send the exact numbers for bike tomorrow.
Best regards,

Try this page for Classic Motorcycle Valuations. Ed Re my Condor A580, the engine number is 7339 and the frame number 94739. Is it possible to find the year of manufacture? Thanks for your assistance.

Condor Ducati on Ebay
Vendor's Description:
"In the early '70s, the Swiss Army tapped the venerable Italian motorcycle paragon, Ducati, to craft a military bike that could handle the rigors of the Alps. The solid frame and punchy 350 cc kick-start engine they engineered took on the twisting mountain roads of Switzerland like a champ. When we discovered a few of these well-maintained, but virtually forgotten "Condor" bikes nested away in a Cold War-era warehouse, we nearly popped a wheelie. Designed for solo dispatches and liaison duties, they feature dual saddlebags and even a rifle rack. Produced from 1973 to 1978, they're street-legal based on classic vehicle laws. (Even though we trust the Swiss maintenance guys, we hired a trusty American motorcycle mechanic to change the oil and filter, conduct compression tests and other diagnostics, and to give each bike an overall tune-up.) 84"x48". 600 lbs. "

I've attached a picture of the Condor for you. It was made in 1942 for the Swiss Army. As far as I know there are only two in New Zealand. One is at a Transport Museum and I have the other. Any information you can find on this would be greatly appreciated. I'm not even sure of its value. Once again thanks for you help. -- Ross De Thier -- mail-to:rossdt at
