In 1999, the Italian motorcycle maker released the Ducati 748 Biposto, a fully faired sports machine that, as its name says, packed a two-piece dual seat. The bike was in its sixth year of production and followed the same recipe without any significant modifications.

The bike debuted in 1994 and was identical to the Ducati 916 model. Both machines were designed by Massimo Tamburini and shared some design elements with the Ducati Supermono.

In the visual department, the bike packed the same standard features as its predecessors, such as a full fairing with a small windscreen, dual headlights, a two-piece dual seat (although it was also available as a monoposto single seat), a dual exhaust system mounted under the seat, and three-spoke lightweight aluminum wheels.

The bike's suspension comprised a 43 mm fully adjustable USD Showa fork on the front and an adjustable Showa shock absorber with progressive linkage on the rear, delivering excellent handling capabilities.

The three-spoke aluminum wheels were fitted with two 320 mm discs, four-piston calipers on the front, and a 220 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear, providing reliable stopping power.

As for the power figures, the 1999 Ducati 748 Biposto was set in motion by a 748cc four-stroke liquid-cooled V-twin engine that delivered an output power of 96 hp at 11,000 rpm and 75 Nm (55 lb-ft) torque at 8,700 rpm.
