Then this time we will discuss about the three-wheeled vehicles made by the Borgo Panigale based motorcycle manufacturer, one of which was named Ducati Muletto and was released in the 1950s.

At that time Ducati tried to compete with Piaggio, its compatriot manufacturer that had already produced the Piaggio Ape to fill the three-wheeled vehicle market.

And the three-wheeled vehicle was created by Ducati intended to a real-cargo vehicle with the rear-box that can be opened on all sides, as if there is no limit to the size of the goods it can carry.

As reported by Bikeexif.com, the Ducati Muletto has a carrying capacity of up to 350 kg. Then for performance, the three-wheeled Ducati carries a single-cylinder SOHC engine so able to make it to run up to 60 kph.

Hereafter, there are two types of engines from Ducati Muleto, namely 175 and 200 cc. The Italian motorcycle manufacturer built the Muletto with a 175 cc engine in 1957, and a year later, the same vehicle was built with an engine with a 200 cc capacity.
