Ducati 250 Sprint
The Ducati 250 Sprint is a bike that
came with a minimalist design, as well as Ducati’s new 249 cc SOHC single
wide-case engine that was mated to a five-speed transmission.
The 250 Sprint was built for sprint
racing and hill climbing, with the latter being a popular form of racing back in
Italy during the 60’s and the 70’s. Back then, the Ducati single engines were a
popular choice amongst enthusiasts. The 250 Sprint not only came with that
powertrain, but they also had a significantly larger Dell’Orto PHF32AS
carburetor and twin spark plugs. To save weight, the seat and tailpiece were
made from fiber-glass, as was the fuel tank. In addition, the bike also came
with rear-set foot-pegs, clip-on bars, and a fly-screen with a Veglia tachometer
whereas the wheels came with Borrani rims.
