8 gears, 14,000 rpm, just 20 horses - Ducati 125

I've just finished translating from the Italian a fascinating interview with Franco Farné that will be in the almost finished Issue Five, and it's amazing to read of some of the projects he and Taglioni worked on, in vain. This four cylinder 125 was built to compete with the Hondas but it didn't. It was packed off to Russia, broken up, and turned up in Estonia (motor) and frame (Yugoslavia) many years later.Nice pics by Phil Aynsley, see more here
