The Ducati 750 F1 Desmo was a road-oriented motorcycle produced by Ducati in 1985 as a replacement for the Ducati Pantah and continued production until 1988 when it was replaced by the Ducati 851.

In addition to the base model, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Ducati 750 F1 Santamonica, a special edition machine developed to celebrate Lucchinelli's victory in the 1986 TT F1 world championship in Misano. The bike was a hybrid version of the previous ones aimed at road use.

Visually, the bike was similar to the other two special edition machines, Montjuich and Laguna Seca, packing standard features, including a full fairing with a rectangular headlight, a small windscreen, a red-finished frame, a single seat with lumbar support, a single exhaust system on the left side, and three-spoke lightweight alloy wheels.

Underneath its fairing, the 1987 Ducati 750 F1 Santamonica had installed a 748cc four-stroke V-twin air-cooled engine with two Dell'Orto carburetors in charge, delivering an output power of 95 hp with a peak force at 9,000 rpm and 61 Nm (45 lb-ft) torque at 7,500 rpm.

The engine was married to a five-speed manual transmission inked to the rear wheel through a final chain drive, pushing the motorcycle to a maximum speed of 219 kph (136 mph).

The braking power was handled by two 280 mm discs on the front wheel tied to four-piston Brembo Gold Series calipers and a 270 mm disc on the rear wheel.
