750 F1 Montjuich
The 750 F1Montjuich is a sports version of the original 750 F1. The motorcycle was first announced after the Milan Show in 1985, on the heels of the great racing success Ducati achieved on the Montjuich Park circuit in Barcelona, Spain.
The 750 F1 Montjuich entered the market in 1986 and was known as the F1 "special" since it was a more costly rare model (each motorcycle had a numbered plaque on the fuel tank), different from the other 750 F1 on the market at the time. The Montjuich was a real step ahead of the stock 750 F1: it was faster, more effective and overall a real sports bike.
750 F1 Laguna Seca
Marco Lucchinelli's amazing success in the 1986 Battle of the Twins at Laguna Seca prompted Ducati to name this limited edition 750 F1 after the famous Californian track.
The 750 F1 Laguna Seca even came with a decal of Marco Lucchinelli's autograph on the gas tank. Although the engine and frame were similar to the Montjuich, some parts of the Laguna Seca were shared with the 750 Paso. A total of 200 750 F1 Laguna Seca motorcycles were produced, with both solo and dual posts.
750 F1 Santamonica
Lucchinelli's victory at the Santamonica circuit in Misano, Italy in 1986, prompted Ducati to produce a final limited edition 750 F1.
The 750 F1 Santamonica came out in 1987 and initially was only produced for the Japanese market, Ducati's most important market at the time. There were 200 motorcycles produced, all two-seaters with the possibility to cover the passenger saddle. The 750 FI Santamonica was a hybrid model that was based on the other limited edition 750 F1: the engine was the same as the engine on the Laguna Seca while the wheels and brakes were just like the Montjuich.
