2007 Ducati Sport 1000 Biposto
READY FOR 2007, THE SPORT 1000 BIPOSTO, THE SPORT 1000 S AND A NEW TWO-TONE LIVERY FOR THE GT 1000
The SportClassic family, which has met with great success since its appearance in 2003, replicates the styling of the motorcycles built in Ducati’s workshops in the 1970s, characterised by a minimalist, sporting look, with an exposed frame and bodyparts in soft, rounded shapes. To emphasis the unique style of these bikes, Ducati has used top-level original components and finishes, featuring chrome and brightwork that provide the final touch, personalise the range and evoke the lines of the bikes from which they’re inspired.
The whole SportClassic family mates retro style with modern technology and mounts the brilliant Desmo 1000 DS engine: delivering impressive torque, this air-cooled 90° “L” twin-cylinder is the ideal engine for these new sports models. The cylinders, with their traditional cooling fins and classic L-configuration, harken to the original design by Taglioni. The 1000 DS engine is equipped with the Desmo twin-valve system, fuel injection and an electronic engine control to guarantee power, reliability, thrilling performance and ease of use.
As of 2007, the Sport 1000 will be available in two new versions: as well as the traditional single-seater, the Sport 1000 will be produced in an updated two-seater version for the new season, with a comfortable seat for both rider and pillion, complete with removable seat-cover so as to leave that perfect CafÃ© Racer style undiminished.
Another two-seater version is the new Sport 1000 S, with a seductive new colour scheme of red frame and swingarm with black wheel rims and engine covers, and featuring a classic upper fairing with a round central headlamp, to give it a more aggressive look in keeping with 1970’s tradition.
As well as its two traditional colours red and grey, the GT 1000 will be presented in an original new two-tone livery of metallic black and cream, which recalls the original designs of this Ducati grand tourer.
SPORT 1000 biposto
In the 1970s, the most sports-oriented motorcyclists used to modify their road bikes according to what they saw on the track, including clip-ons handlebars, rear set footrests and aggressive colours. The aim was not just to make your bike look better but to enhance its performance too. And that’s how the CafÃ© Racer style came into being. The Ducati Sport 1000 elegantly captures the audacious look of the motorcycles of that era.
This year, as well as the single-seat version, the SportClassic stable includes the new Sport 1000 biposto, a two-seater which features a comfortable double seat, raised clip-ons to make the riding position even more comfortable and retro style twin rear shocks.
The removable passenger seat-cover, colour-matched with the bike, keeps the Sport 1000 biposto true CafÃ© Racer looks intact, but take it off and you’ll find a comfortable pillion seat underneath.
The two-seater version of the Sport 1000 embodies the same high quality and advanced technology as its single-seat counterpart. Mounting high-performance Marzocchi 43 mm upside down forks up front, twin Sachs shock rear suspension which are fully adjustable for spring pre-load, and compression and rebound damping. The two rear shocks are fixed at the bottom to an oversize 60 mm diameter tubular steel swingarm, which features a simple, rational system (reminiscent of the one used on the 1970s bikes) for adjusting chain tension.
Lastly, there’s a new exhaust system (Euro 3) culminating in two symmetrical silencers on the right and left of the bike.
The special colour combinations put the distinctive finishing touches to this bike. The Sport 1000 two-seater is available in three different colours, featuring the characteristic longitudinal stripe down the middle of the fuel tank and tail section. The colours available for this model are: Burnt yellow with black stripe, Gloss black with white stripe and Ducati Red with white stripe, all three with a black frame.
