It's just a stock 'ol coil from 1982 on the original Coupe (probably a 
Bosch). My thinking was based on the idea that the Ducati motors do 
make good power and obviously the coils were spec'd out to produce that 
power but when a beefier set of coils is put in place there is a slight 
but very noticeable improvement in running and power. It was a nice 
$150, 2 hour install on my bike and I was looking for a similar 
cheap&easy upgrade for my Coupe. Maybe the stocker is good enough.
