This is Ducati’s very first racing motorcycle to be powered by its now legendary 90-degree L-layout V-Twin. The example shown won the non-championship Yugoslavian Grand Prix in 1971 piloted by Gilberto Parlotti. Another 500 GP Bicilindrica was raced in 1971 by Phil Read, but his only classified result in a World Championship round on it was a 4th place at the ’71 Italian Grand Prix. In the face of an onslaught from MV Agusta and the two-stroke Japanese machines, perhaps the 500 GP Bicilindrica’s greatest contribution was that it became the base for Ducati’s legendary 750 GT streetbike.
