Ciao Ragazzi!

I had the pleasure to know Mr. Mario Sakamoto, he is a very polite and kind person, since he had phoned to say me about the publication on my website of DUCATI TT2, which was in the Italian championship in 1983.

Mr. Sakamoto honored me with his visit at my house and gently he brought me a lot photographic documentation.

I saw the emotion in his eyes when I showed him the motorbike.

He saw by great care all the components, and naturally he tried to remember the details that he had many years ago under his eyes.
Then he opened an album with all his photos of that time!!

This one made me very happy, 'cause the documentation of that particular moment in the history of motorcycling is very rare.

We get to wath the pictures, and together we found some details that corresponded perfectly to the concerned DUCATI TT2.

I had a great satisfaction.

I have let see already the motorbike to Rino Caracchi (NCR), and immediately he had recognized the originality of the DUCATI TT2.
I confirmed by the famous Japanese pilot too.
I am attaching some photos of what I have said, and I anticipate that I will create a publication on my website, where you can 'see many pictures of those great battles of the Italian league TT2.

Absolutely original tape!


I want to let you see the tank to refuel quickly in endurance races of the Italian championship TT2.

In the picture you will see Moretti Domenico, Livorno frame builder, Ugo Becchetti behind the bike, and Ferdinand De Cecco driving.

Ugo Becchetti and Ferdinando De Cecco won the Italian TT2 1983. speed and endurance.

In this photo, they have had a problem with the rear wheel, and for this reason Mario Sakamoto finished first in its class, with Massimo Brutti.

Ciao Carlo Leoncini

Hello Carlo,
Is Mr Livorno from Verlicchi? Or another frame builder?
Wish I could read Italian, some I can understand from reading factory manuals over the years, your english is far better than my Italian.

And your bike still has its battle scars, with pictures to prove it !!!

Hello Graeme, Domenico Moretti is a frame builder in Livorno, he has nothing to do with Verlicchi.



Hi, guys,
this is what I know (sorry for my english..):

I spoke a lot with Rino Caracchi about TT2's history.
He told me that in 1982, the Engineer Taglioni commissioned Verlicchi 20 frames , which were assembled in the workshop of the NCR because , at the time, Ducati wasn't going to do racing bike but only road bike.
The first 20 frames and the engine case, haven't serial number because they were obtained from the assembly of PANTHA DUCATI 600 then relieved, and deliverables

In 1983, the Ducati has done new production of 25 bikes TT2, with 16-inch front wheel.
The new production was given the serial number of the frames, with Ducati's invoice, there was mounting the engine Ducati and they have been referred (italian "moto clienti") customers bike.
This has to do with the TT2 history.

In 1983, the frame builder of Livorno (city of Italy in Tuscany)Domenico Moretti designed a chassis with the rear shock, removing the annoyng problem of chattering , wich manifested itself on the official Ducati TT2.

In 1983, Becchetti Ugo, Ferdinando De Cecco won with a frame Moretti.
At the end of the bike championchip, the Becchetti's bike has been tested in the Mugello by the great Walter Villa, always surprise by the chassis frame of the Ducati TT2Moretti.
Then, the Ducati asked to Ugo Bechetti if he could bring the bike in the Ducati factory: from there came the basis for Ducati 851 superbike.
You can see the likeness of my frame, with a frame Moretti Ducati 851. It was released in 1982 with all the features of a modern motorcycle ( I think).

I know Rino Caracchi very well, and Ugo Becchetti married my sister, so I know him better.
and when I bought my TT2 Sakamoto , I went along Ugo Becchetti to Bologna from Caracchi because we wanted to see my bike to him,and on this occasion, he told me the story and I believe him.

Thank you for your attention.

Carlo Leoncini
