Ducati Motor Holding

Redirected from Ducati

Ducati Motor Holding is an Italian motorcycle manufacturer.

Ducati are known for high performance motorcycles with large capacity four-stroke engines featuring a desmodromic valve design.

Desmodromic valves are those which are positively closed by a leverage system, rather than relying on the more conventional springs to close the valves.

The chief designer of Ducati motorcycles was the late Fabio Taglioni (1920-2001).

The company has enjoyed nine World Superbike championships[?] in recent years.
