The Ducati 125 Bialbero: beautiful, with or without fairing

Here is a 1955 Ducati 125 Bialbero, manufactured by the Bologna-based company for a prototypes’ Grand Prix held that year. The model’s design was based on Fabio Taglioni’s Ducati 100 Gran Sport.

With this splendid motorcycle – in two versions, with or without fairing, due to the 1957 ban on the aerodynamic component that often caused dangerous lack of stability during races – Willi Scheidhauer won a number of races between 1956 and 1961, including Zandvoort and Tubbergen.

Today, it belongs to the Silverman Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
