2007 Ducati Sport 1000 Monoposto
THE CAFÃ‰ RACER STYLE OF THE ORIGINAL DUCATI SPORT 750
In the 1970s, sport riders were modifying their street bikes with some of what they saw being used on the racetrack, including clip-on handlebars, rear set footpegs, and ‘fast’ colours. This was done just as much for the look as for increased performance. The CafÃ© Racer style was born.
A CLASSIC FOR TODAY
The Sport 1000 monoposto elegantly captures the bold style of the early bikes with its clip-on handlebars and monoposto single seat. The Sport 1000 is built with quality throughout: it mounts high performance Marzocchi front forks with classic brushed aluminium surfaces and a massive 60mm swingarm with a fully adjustable single Sachs shock. The unique suspension layout of the Sport 1000 ensures that its look matches the classic appeal of the bike, while still delivering the superior road holding and performance you expect from Ducati.
Features and Benefits:
CLASSIC STYLE AND MODERN SPORT PERFORMANCE
Welcome to the Ducati SportClassic family: motorcycles that capture the essential beauty, timeless style and emotion of Engineer Fabio Taglioni’s original Ducati sport bikes of the 1970s. While retaining the best of the past, they have been developed using the latest technology and engineering, creating a range of thoroughly modern motorcycles that live up to today’s standards of road-going performance.
The Sport and GT models are all powered by the outstanding Desmo 1000 Dual Spark engine.
The torquey air-cooled 90º L-Twin is the perfect match to power bikes with a sporting soul. The cylinders, with their traditional cooling fins and classic ‘L’ configuration, are direct descendents of the original Taglioni design. Slim and exposed for all to see, the latest 2 valve Desmo system, fuel-injection and computer controlled engine management ensure that the 1000 Dual Spark engine is powerful, dependable and thrilling to ride.
TRELLIS FRAME AND WIRE-SPOKE WHEELS
The SportClassic design takes advantage of the beauty of the signature Ducati tubular Trellis frame. The renowned strength and rigidity of the ALS 450 tubing has been further improved with complex triangulation and using the engine as a ‘stressed member.’
The beauty of wire-spoke wheels grace Ducati road bikes once again. Starting with an alloy hub, the new wheels use 36 chromed stainless steel spokes. 17” alloy Excel rims, famous in racing circles for their lightweight performance and durability, are used on the Sport 1000 and Sport 1000 S, while the GT 1000 is fitted with classic 17” chrome rims. Mounted to the rims are modern interpretations of classic sport tyres, replicating the original patterns, but with modern radial construction techniques and rubber compounds. The alloy hubs mount dual 320mm brake discs up front and a 245mm disc in the rear, both using lightweight black Brembo floating callipers to provide extra stopping power. Braking performance is further enhanced by classic black, steel-braided brake lines.
Ducati sponsors the Motogiro d’Italia, a historical re-enactment of one of the original long-distance road races in Italy. Motogiro, and its parade of hundreds of motorcycles old and new criss-crossing unforgettable Italian countryside, has become a point of reference for those passionate about vintage motorcycles and historic motorcycle events.
