We believe this is the only running 4 valve cylinder head bevel V twin in the world. The bike didn’t leave the factory like this but has been built up around the cylinder heads which were the original castings Ducati made in 1970 when Taglioni was designing the 750 engine and experimented with four valve cylinder heads. The castings are similar to but not the same as those displayed in the Ducati museum that they experimented with for the 500 at around the same time
