The amazing Ducati P.L. M. by Xavier Baldet, realized on basis Ducati Pantah led to 52 HP, 150 kg for a maximum speed of 180 kmh. Tubular trellis frame was custom-designed for the realization of this model. Ironically it was the failure of the frame causing the withdrawal of Baldet.
Below a video excerpt which testifies to the disastrous retreat of Baldet.
