The Ducati Indiana was a motorcycle made by Ducati from 1986 to 1988. It was presented at the 1985 EICMA Show in Milan and was created with several engine displacements. Also, it was intended to compete with Harley-Davidson on its territory.

In 1986, the Italian motorcycle maker released the Ducati 650 Indiana, the bigger brother of the 350cc model. The bike was marketed only in 1986 and replaced by the 750cc version in 1987.

The naked bike had standard features, like a round headlight on the front with instruments mounted on top, a two-piece dual seat with a passenger grab rail, a small luggage rack on the rear, side-mounted rear shocks, a dual exhaust system with a silencer on each side, and three-spoke wheels.

Suspension-wise, the bike packed a 40 mm Marzocchi fork on the front and twin Marzocchi shocks on the rear, delivering optimum handling capabilities.

As for the braking power, the bike was fitted with a 260 mm brake disc on the 18-inch front wheel and a 280 mm disc on the 15-inch rear wheel, providing optimum braking performance.

As for the power, the 1987 Ducati 650 Indiana had its heartbeat set by a 649cc four-stroke L-twin air-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 53 hp with maximum strength at 7,000 rpm and 45 Nm (33 lb-ft) torque at 6,000 rpm.
