2007 Ducati Sport 1000 S
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 S
Following the 1970s trend for uncompromising individualism and enhanced performance, Ducati introduces the Sport 1000 S with a classic aerodynamic upper fairing which takes its styling cues directly from the “Race” models of the era.
It may be a two-seater, but the Sport 1000 S retains all the hallmark CafÃ© Racer styling, with the added benefit that you can enjoy its impressive performance either alone or two-up.
The new colour scheme retains the characteristic longitudinal white stripe, while offering red on red for the frame and fairing. The spoked wheels with aluminium rims, the hub and the exhaust pipes are black, along with a number of other engine parts, for a stark contrast with the red frame and fairing. This contrast gives the new Sport 1000 S an attractive and decidedly aggressive look, without compromising its retro form and charm. The removable rear seat cover contributes to the typical CafÃ© Racer look of the Sport 1000 S, but take it off and you’ll find a comfortable pillion seat underneath. What’s more, the bike features an unmistakeable 1970s style upper fairing with the pronounced, rounded shape that characterised the great competition bikes.
The Sport 1000 S was built with close attention to the quality of its components. The race-bred trellis frame and sports suspension give the bike outstanding road-holding. The Sport 1000 S mounts high-performance Marzocchi 43mm upside down forks with chromed forks caps, for a classic look, while rear suspension duties are handled by a high-performance Sachs twin shocks, which are fully adjustable for spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping.
The style of the Sport 1000 S is classic CafÃ© Racer and delivers both outstanding road-holding and the typical performance of a thoroughbred Ducati.
