2004 Ducati Superbike 999R

Superbike world champion.

This is the link between standard production bikes and the racing world. With the best that technology can offer, it stands out thanks to even more advanced technical solutions, starting with a high performance big bore/short stroke Testastretta engine, producing even higher RPM limits and 139 Hp.

The carbon fibre is the result of extensive wind tunnel testing and the exclusive nature of the motorcycle is reinforced by the limited edition numbered plate affixed to the fork yoke.

The rear shock absorber and fork are by Öhlins, adjustable for pre-load, plus rebound and compression damping. The 43 millimetre diameter fork stanchions have undergone a titanium-nitride treatment for improved suspension response and the special front fork lowers allow the mounting of the radial callipers. The Brembo Marchesini wheels are made from an aluminium alloy that is forged in a process that is the same as used for the production of racing wheels, creating a wheel of higher torsional rigidity and lower weight.

The Testastretta engine fitted in the 999R chassis is especially designed for track use and makes 139 HP at 10.000 RPM with 11 kgm of torque at 8.000 RPM. The 999R is delivered to the customer complete with a kit for track use only. It includes a Termignoni 102 Db exhaust, with horizontal rear half-manifold without catalytic converter and a dedicated electronic control unit, which reduces weight by three kilos (6.6 lbs.) while improving performance.
