Motoexotica is pleased to offer one of the rarest Ducati variations on the planetThe 1981 Ducati Scuderia N.C.R was one of the preeminent motorcycle racing teams of all time. They were the defacto Ducati factory race team from the early 1970s until Ducati took it inhouse with Ducati Corsa in 2000. They continued as privateers and had success with rider Ben Bostrom. The company was then sold and continues as a specialist builder of very high end motorcycles.
NCRs wins on the world stage are almost too numerous to mention. But Imola 200 winners Paul Smart, Isle of Man TT winners Mike Hailwood were all on the bevel drive NCRs. The string of wins by Tony Rutter on the belt drive TT2 were all Nepoti and Caracchi machines that made NCR a household name with their distinctive logo of a speeding helmet clad dog.
Nepoti and Caracchi Racing designed their own frame for the belt drive Pantah based series. This was the 600TT. It differs from the more common TT2, which was more of a Ducati design. A total of nine frames were made by Verlicchi and a further two by DM. All but two were racing frames. Of these two street bikes produced, this is the only one built with an alloy gas tank. Imagine a genuine NCR with a steering lock.
This bike has spent most of its life unused in Germany. The owner tried to convert his Pantah to a NCR framed machine, but the TUV would not allow it, due to their ultrastrict type certification. Throughout 1980s, 90s and 2000s it was in hiding. It resurfaced in 2006 and was recommissioned. However the German owner was still not able to use it.
It came to America several years ago and has been in a private collection museum ever since. It has a US tile as the original donor Ducati Pantah.
Gas has been drained and battery removed for storage and display. We are selling this incredible machine for a client of ours and all technical questions will be answered as quickly as possible but may take time to get as he has limited access. Sold on a clean, mileage exempt US title.
