Ducati, a name long synonymous with motorcycle racing, actually started out manufacturing electronic components. Founded in 1926 by the Ducati family, and officially named “The Societa Radio Brevetti Ducati“, they soon became a world leader in the manufacture of radios, electronic components, and even cameras! The company grew by leaps and bounds, employing over 11,000 workers before allied bombing campaigns during the Second World War destroyed the Borgo Panigale factory in 1944.
As if an all-new Supersport and the new Monster lineup weren’t enough, Ducati decided to corner the market with a new sport-touring bike. The ST2, first introduced in 1997 (Europe), carried a new fuel-injected, liquid cooled 944cc two-valve motor. While limited in ground clearance, the new sport tourer was well capable of handling twisty mountain roads with a 24.5 degree steering head, rising rate rear suspension, and short wheelbase.
