Of the 683 sold worldwide, this example is 1 of 40 sold in the United States. I spotted this at the International Motorcycle Show as the center display for the Nation's Capital Norton Owners Group. Check out the pictures below:

Back in 1980, I remember racing a guy on one of these thru a mountain range, we had some fun. I was on a 1976 Kawasaki 900 with drum brakes on the rear and he was on a 79 red and white one of these Darmahs. I was 19 and he was about 20. We travelled together for a while after that. He broke down a few times and we spent some time just fixing little things. Brings back a great memory though thanks for the pics.

Nice pictures and very nice bike.

The bike should be sent to a "detailer", to correct painting and chrome parts.... and then, should be put on the living room! Damn!

No. It needs to be ridden. Too many of the the older bikes become garage queens.
I'm guessing it sounds wonderful with the Contis and the bevel drive. Mechanical symphony.

Last year I picked up a never ridden 900 SS in Black and Gold . It has 3 km on the clock and never seen the road .
I'm a real fan of the bevel Ducati's .

Still had the factory delivery tag on it .
Thanks from duc
