NCR Brand History
NCR was born in 1967, in Via Signorini, on the western suburbs of Bologna. The three founders, Rino Caracchi, Giorgio Nepoti and Rizzi, started building motorcycles based on the famous Ducati platforms. For approximately 30 years, until the early 90s, being helped by Franco Farnè, Recchia, Pedretti, Cavazzi and Taglioni, the company managed to create several unique bikes capable of winning world-class competitions. The most famous one is the Ducati 900NCR on which Mike Hailwood won the 1978 Formula 1 World Championship in the Isle of Man. The NCR team was the first official racing team of Ducati.
During the 70s, Ducati didn’t participate in racing competitions and because of this, engines and chassis were given to NCR in order to be improved. Since the beginning, the alliance between Ducati and NCR impressed everyone and besides Hailwood, other famous drivers raced with NCR, the most known being Cannellas, Grau, Perugini, Francini, Ricci, Gardner and Spencer.
