The Italian engineers from the House of Borgo Panigale have created the 999 Ducati as a powerful, race-capable machine, that still has an affordable price-tag. Standard features include dual headlights, a two-piece, dual seat, a full-fairing with a small windscreen, cast-aluminium wheels, a Showa, TiN-coated, 43mm upside-down telescopic fork coupled to a Showa monoshock with progressive linkage as a rear suspension, Brembo brakes with dual front discs and a single disc in the rear, an under-seat exhaust system, and a digital instrument cluster.
In the engine department it sports a fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 999cc, 90-degree desmodromic V-Twin powerhouse, mated to a six-speed manual transmission with a chain final drive and a dry clutch, that can produce a claimed 140 horse power and 102 Nm of torque.
