The Ducati F1 is a motorcycle produced by Ducati in 1988.


The F1 was only ever imported to the US for off-road use and only a few hundred of the couple thousand made ever made it here. While many were in fact raced, some were registered by their owners for street use. All were European spec with speedometers in km/h. Regulators were often replaced with Ducati 916 unit (the original regulators on F1s were problematic). The F1 had a piece of heat resistant material glued to the inside of the fairing where it passes close to the exhaust pipe. This material tends to come loose and be lost and as a result most F1s either have no lower fairing fitted or have heat damage to the fairing.
