2006 Ducati Sport 1000
In 1973 the Ducati 750 Sport, which was the predecessor of the Super Sport 750, first appeared in bright yellow paint. With its solo seat and simple single headlamp, the Sport was essentially a production Cafè Racer. Enthusiasts modified and enhanced these bikes to become the "street racer" of the time. The clip-on handlebars, racing stripe down the centre of the tank and solo seat of the Sport 750 anticipated the emerging street performance trend and the Cafè Racer image of the period.
The new Ducati Sport 1000 captures the bold Cafè Racer style and essential beauty of the 70's motorcycles. The bike features a single large diameter round headlamp and chromed mirrors mounted on the ends of the handlebars, very much typical of the custom sport bikes of the time.
The Sport 1000 is available in three traditional monochromatic colour schemes of period: Burnt Yellow, Ducati Red and Ducati Black. The traditional style theme is further enhanced with the use of a contrasting racing stripe added to the fuel tank and tailpiece of each bike. All three colours are complimented with a classic black frame.
The Sport 1000's suspension features 43mm upside-down forks by Marzocchi, while the rear suspension is handled by a fully adjustable single shock absorber by Sachs.
