Ducati (Museum and Factory) is located in Via Antonio Cavalieri Ducati, 3 – Bologna.Ducati Superbikes are the most powerful twin-cylinder motorcycles ever built.They are the product of a team of designers and engineers who have combined their Ducati MotoGP and World Superbike technologies to create the finest sportbikes in the world.
The sizzling looks are important but are nothing without performance; underneath the sizzling body is an engine that is quoted by Ducati to be the The most powerful,lightest L-Twin in history and consequently the 1098 is also the fasted Ducati street bike ever made.
Contained in the kit is the complete inventory required to fit the less restrictive carbon silencers including an updated race ECU to adjust the fuelling to match the increased airflow, and also a high throughput performance air filter to balance out the additional fuelling.
It should Also look fantastic and have a great racing heritage. For me the bike that hits all the right buttons is the Ducati and inparticular the Ducati 1098 which I think is probablyThe most beautiful bike currently in production.KTM have also made it unnecessary for the rider to move his hand from the handlebars to operate the interestingly styled clocks. Instead, they are operated from a useful control on the left side switchgear.
The Ducati relies on an old power plant derived from Ducati’s old 907 Paso. Like most Ducati motorcycles it’s a 90 degree V-twin. It’s liquid cooled and while not unbelievably powerful is torquey with superb midrange.A 140 hp Testastretta engine, steering dampers and the new monobloc brakes mean that with the 848EVO even more exhilarating performance is guaranteed. 848EVO – the most exciting way to enter the world Ducati Superbikes.
