Ducati-1986-Montjuich-PA-135.jpg
The Montjuich was released in 1986 as a limited edition (200 made) version of the 750 F1. Differences included major engine tuning with hotter cams, bigger ports, larger carburettors, new crankcases to suit improved gearbox parts and a lightened & ventilated clutch. Aluminium was used for the swingarm and tank. Higher spec wheels & brakes were fitted. A competition Verlicchi exhaust was used. Unusually this bike has the tank breather on the RH side. Also later model master cylinders are fitted instead of the correct F-1 type. 95hp at 10,000rpm. 155kg. For 1987 the Montjuich was replaced by the Laguna Seca (200) and in 1988 the Santamonica (300). Photographed in New Zealand. 2012. Bill Irwin collection.
