20th anniversary of the 916 :’)

by Arpit R


Twenty years ago, in 1994, a very special motorcycle made its debut, the Ducati 916. It was designed by Massimo Tamburini, Sergio Robbiano and his team at the Cagiva Research Centre. It was admired for its new design and outstanding technical features, and ultimately for its great racing record. It featured a more powerful motor, a chrome-moly trellis frame, striking new bodywork that featured aggressive lines, a single-sided swingarm, and underseat exhausts that improved aerodynamic performance and gave very clean lines. No doubt Ducati’s have moved on from the 916.
