2006 Ducati 999S

Ducati 999S

Like the 749S, this machine is the link between the 999 in the road version and the R machine designed exclusively for the race circuit. Equipped with advanced and highly effective suspension systems and an engine that has all the raw power needed to handle any riding situation, this bike is in its element on the racetrack, despite the fact that it is fully homologated for road use. The twin cylinder engine can be given a further power boost by fitting the racing kit supplied with each bike (available in all countries except Japan).

Style;

Like all Ducati Superbikes, the 999S maintains the classic family appearance. The only visible differences are the brakes and suspension, which are aesthetically and structurally of a more professional class. In effect, the S is the link between the road versions and the primarily competition machines. As an alternative to the two-seater machine, there's also a solo version with specific rear fairing, stylistically very similar to the 999 Factory machines.

Chassis ;

Homologated for road use, but also perfectly equipped to excel on the race circuit, the 999S uses suspension systems that are rarely found on series production motorcycles. The single shock and upside-down forks are made by Íhlins and are racing specification. The suspensions provide adjustments for spring preload and compression and rebound damping, all functions that are more precise thanks to the use of a check valve that operates on the rebound stroke and makes it possible to obtain clear separation between the various suspension functions with resulting benefits in terms of set-up precision. Also the steering damper is supplied by Íhlins, equipped with an eccentric mount to adapt to the two available steering head angles. The exclusive component parts of the 999S are completed by a braking system with radial callipers.
