Pre-Purchase inspections welcome, we describe these vehicles to the best of our ability. There are NO returns on vehicles purchased. Please do your due diligence prior to purchase, to ensure this vehicle is to your standards of quality.

The TL was the first attempt to make a touring bike from the Pantah. Although the Pan-tah was launched as a “sport touring” bike to be ridden two up, it certainly wasn't and the need for a more sedate and comfortable bike was felt. So a more comfortable rid-ing position and milder cams were designed for the “Touring L model”. Unfortunately, also a new bodywork was designed. The most positive definition that comes to my mind for this bike's cosmetics is “perplexing”. The seat and tank are ordinary looking at best, the little nose fairing is something already seen on some Japanese bike of the time. But the long sidepanels that hide the top cylinder are a designer's bad dream. They hide the vertical cylinder so that motor looks like a horizontal single, Aermacchi style, and the whole bodywork looks heavy and tall. The whole bike reminds of a large semi-bodied scooter. Removing the sidepanels, or hiding them under a proper fairing made things a little better.

It's a real pity that the TL was so ugly, because it was a good bike. Despite being tuned down from the SL 600, it was fast enough to compete in its class (which included the Guzzi V65, the BMW R60 and the Yamaha XZ 550) and had all the stability and handling virtues of the SL600. The TL was built in 350 and 600 cc versions and was the starting base for the Alazzurra with which it shares more than one can imagine. For example the whole footpegs and pedal compartment are identical.

Pantah Technical Data:

Pantah 600: intake 54°-84°, exhaust 82°-48°.
(the Ducati workshop manual gives same values for 500 and 600: intake 50°-80°, ex-haust 75°-45°)

TL 600: intake 53° - 82°; exhaust 82°-50° valve lift unknown but closing rockers have profile that doesn't allow the same lift as Pantah's.

F1 standard: intake 31°-88°, valve lift 10.5 mm; exhaust 72°-46°
[if !supportEmptyParas] [endif]
F1 Montjuich: intake 67°-99°, valve lift 11.3 mm; exhaust 93°-70°, valve lift 10.3 mm.

Pantah Carburation:

All Pantahs use Dellorto carbs, with the exception of the Indiana (Bing constant vacu-um carbs) and the Paso and Sport 750 (Weber car-type carb). The change was done because the Dellortos were felt “too rough” for a bike of touristic inclination.
