2008 Ducati Sport Classic 1000 Biposto

THE CAFÉ 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 Café Racer style was born.


SINGLE AND DUAL SEAT IN ONE
The Sport 1000 biposto, features a comfortable dual seat, raised handlebars and classic twin shocks. A removable rear seat cover gives the Sport 1000 biposto the Café Racer look, but when removed reveals a seat for your favourite passenger.


DUCATI PERFORMANCE
The Sport 1000 is built with quality throughout. It uses high performance Marzocchi front forks with classic brushed aluminium surfaces and for rear suspension, it features a massive 60 mm swingarm, and twin fully adjustable Sachs shocks. 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.
