Ducati's unique desmodromic valve actuation system is driven by a single overhead camshaft. Unlike most OHC engines, which use a chain to spin the cam, Ducati uses a shaft and bevel gears.

The shaft and bevel gears can be seen through a small window.
The tachometer indicates a redline of 8000 rpm -- quite high for a large-displacement twin.
The Mike Hailwood Replica logo was proudly displayed on the Ducati's headlight fairing.
