About Ducati

Ducati was actually founded by three Ducati brothers Adriano, Marcello and Bruno Ducati in Bologna Italy. Initially they made vacuum tubes, condensers and radio components. They launched a full-fledged factory in Bologna in 1935. The World War II began and the factory became its target several times, but Ducati brothers continued the production.

In 1946, Aldo Farinelli created an engine called Cucciolo in Italy. It was attached to a simple bicycle. Ducati decided to revamp it to make it a 125cc motor. In the meantime Ducati factory was ruined in the World War. Despite the loss, they continued the production with the financial help from the Italy government. After noticing the superb success of Cucciolos, Ducati introduced its Cucciolo based motorcycle in 1950. This was a 60cc lightweight motorcycle, which had its top speed of 65 kmph.
