2008 Ducati Sport Classic 1000S

SPORT PERFORMANCE AND CLASSIC DETAIL
In a repeat of history, Ducati follows the 1970s trend of individualism and performance enhancement by mounting a period-style fairing on the Sport 1000 S. Boasting a dual seat and twin shocks, the Sport 1000 S lets you enjoy the Café Racer style two-up. The bold colour scheme features red bodywork and a red frame. Black wheels and a black exhaust system contrast strongly against the red bike and other black components complete the classic picture. A removable tailpiece cover gives the Sport 1000 S the Café Racer look, but when removed reveals a seat for your favourite passenger.


DUCATI ROAD HOLDING
The Sport 1000 S is built with quality throughout. Its confident road holding is thanks to its race-inspired Trellis frame and sport-tuned suspension. It uses high performance Marzocchi 43 mm upside-down front forks with classic brushed aluminium surfaces, while rear suspension is handled by twin high performance fully adjustable Sachs shocks. The Sport 1000 S bristles with classic Café Racer appeal, while still delivering the superior road holding and performance you expect from Ducati
