1962 Ducati 200SS Elite

The 200 The 200 Élite 200 SS was introduced in 1959, and was very similar to the 175 Sport, using a bored version of the earlier machine's engine. Later models were based on the 250 and were sleeved down to 200cc.

From the Saltarelli Collection, Frano, Italy. Much of the collection was sold at auction in Monaco in 2012.
