Ducati desmo - one of the most evocative phrases in modern motorcycling - was first applied to the singles of the Sixties. For the Seventies, there came the V-twins in the same mould with a bevel-driven overhead camshaft for each cylinder. A desmo version followed, as day follows night, and became the dominant type in the later part of the 15-year life-span of the design. Its history and the machine variations are described here in words and pictures.
