Ducati 160 Monza Junior. At the request of East Coast motorcycle importers Berliner Corporation, Ducati produced a smaller-capacity version of its successful 250 Monza for the U.S. market. To do this, Ducati simply dropped a smaller, 156cc engine into essentially a 250 Monza frame, fitted 16-inch wheels instead of 18-inchers (although with the same front fender), together with a standard Monza gas tank and side panels. Over a four year production run, the Monza and Monza Junior were mildly restyled with more angular gas tank and headlight, but the basic specifications remained unchanged.
