Ducati GT Sport Classic

The 2010 SportClassic family is represented by the 70s-era style of the GT 1000 available in the traditional Ducati red and in the black with white stripe livery.

Celebrating the essential beauty of the Ducati GT models of the 1970s, the GT 1000 is a bike to be ridden every day, with a balance of two-up comfort and Ducati Desmo Twin performance. As you would expect from a motorcycle inspired by one of the original icons of Ducati, every element and component is built with the highest quality materials and engineered with performance as a priority. Although classically inspired, the GT is a thoroughly modern Ducati motorcycle, that’s powerful, handles confidently and is exciting to ride.

Aboard the GT 1000, the feeling is one of comfort and control. The position is reassuringly upright, reaching to a pair of raised tubular handlebars. A well-padded dual seat features ‘Ducati’ printed in white proudly on the back. Rider footpegs are placed conservatively forward allowing comfort and good ground clearance at the same time. The GT 1000 is a true two-seater, with passenger’s footpegs also sensibly placed for all-day comfort.

The slim fuel tank features knee cut-outs on the sides and deep sculpting on the top with a chrome fuel cap. Full fenders front and rear are complemented by trim side covers that evoke the spirit of the 70’s originals. Many of the details like the top crowns, fork caps and handlebar mounts are finished in polished aluminium, and are reflected in the chrome surfaces of the wheels, instrument trim, handlebars and horn covers. Finally, the classic look is completed with chrome exhaust pipes and mufflers, one per side.

The GT 1000 – classic bike in Ducati Style

The GT is powered by the outstanding Desmo 1000 Dual Spark engine. The torquey air-cooled 90º L-Twin is the perfect match to power this Ducati classic bike with a sporting soul. The cylinders, with their traditional cooling fins and classic ‘L’ configuration, are direct descendents of the original Taglioni design. Slim and exposed for all to see, the latest 2 valve Desmo system, fuel-injection and computer controlled engine management ensure that the 1000 Dual Spark engine is powerful, dependable and thrilling to ride.

The GT 1000 design takes advantage of the beauty of the signature Ducati tubular Trellis frame. The renowned strength and rigidity of the ALS 450 tubing has been further improved with complex triangulation and use of the engine as a ‘stressed member.’

The beauty of wire-spoke wheels grace Ducati road bikes once again. Starting with an alloy hub, the wheels use 36 chromed stainless steel spokes. The GT 1000 is fitted with classic 17” chrome rims. Mounted to these rims are modern interpretations of classic sport tyres, replicating the original patterns, but with modern radial construction techniques and rubber compounds.

The alloy hubs mount dual 320mm brake discs up front and a 245mm disc in the rear, both using lightweight black Brembo floating callipers to provide extra stopping power. Braking performance is further enhanced by classic black, steel-braided brake lines.
