STRAIGHT UP

The Ducati 860 GTS, introduced in 1976, was the first indication that the factory was able to offer a machine finished to the same level as the Japanese. And as far as their objective of fine handling and usable road performance are concerned, Ducati have always had their priorities right. Few manufacturers have been able to equal the combination of flexibility and smoothness offered by Ducati’s V-twin engines. Their record in such demanding races as the Barcelona 24-hours at the round-the-houses Montjuich Park is testimony enough to the quality of the Ducati’s steering and road holding. This example runs well and has been well maintained.
