Ducati elite Question.

Post by Paddy » Mon Jun 11, 2012 11:45 am

Hi
Can anyone tell me is there an definitive colour scheme for the Elite ? i have seen them with gold frames, red and silver , red and gold and red and chrome tanks
I have seen them with painted yokes and Red silver or gold headlamp shells.
Now i have bough a second Elite and this one has a Black frame and chrome headlamp ? and looks to be original
I have looked all over for colours but no one seems to agree ??
Can anyone help ?

As far as I know... we could start with the 175 sport that showed the same squeme (and famous fuel tank) that adopted late the Spanish 200 Élite: "flame", frame and front fork in gold, and garnet for ther rest.
For the Italian Élite 200 élite, the garnet was substitued for chrome, including rear dampers. I don´t know if there was little series in other colours, but this two are largely more common.
Good luck
