After Cagiva took over Ducati they evolved the Ducati E900 and called it Elefant. This model was in a class of it´s own for several years in the great off-road runs. It ended with victory in Paris-Dakar rally in 1989 with Edi Oridi in the seat, he did it again in 1994. I 1996 Cagiva endedas number seven with Oscar Gallardo as driver.
