If you are on the market for a race-like machine, but don't have the wallet for a custom-built one, then the 2004 MY Ducati 999R may be the right choice for you. As all "R"-suffixed machines from Borgo Panigale, its engine has been tweaked and remapped, to deliver the highest possible power output, and its bodywork has been lightened by adding carbon fiber parts. Style-wise, it pretty much looks the same as a base 999 or a 999S, the only noticeable difference being the R after the 999 on the side-fairing.
