Overview[edit]

Ducati 750F1 Santamonica

















By 1987, the racing days of the Fl were almost over for the air-cooled two-valve engine. However, one of the most astounding victories late in its racing life was at Misano at the Autodromo Santamonica in April 1986. Lucchinelli won the opening round of the World TT Formula 1 Championship, prompting Ducati to name their final limited edition 750 Fl, the Santamonica. Built primarily for the Japanese market (at that time most important to Ducati), the engine was identical to the Laguna Seca, but there were some changes to the chassis components.

Everything was similar to the Laguna Seca, except for the wheels and brakes. The Marvic/Akront wheels of the Montjuich returned, along with fully floating cast-iron brake calipers. The front brake calipers were the new black P4 type, and the brake lines braided steel. All Santamonicas had a dual seat. While the Santamonicas were offered as a 1988 model, they were very much relics of past under the new Cagiva regime. This certainly doesn't detract from their desirability, and all members of the limited edition series of the 750 Fl are among the most classic production Ducatis of the 1980s.
