In 2008, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Ducati GT 1000, a liter-class machine in its second year of production. The bike was developed by the House of Borgo Panigale and aimed primarily at the American market.

The 2008 motorcycle came with the same package as the previous model, packing the exact technical, visual, and performance specifications without any modifications whatsoever.

Visually, the motorcycle was fitted with standard features, such as a large, round headlight up front with instruments mounted on top, a one-piece dual seat, side-mounted rear shocks, a dual exhaust system with a silencer mounted on each side, and lightweight wire-spoke wheels.

The bike was built around a tubular steel trellis frame with a 43 mm inverted Marzocchi fork on the front that offered 120 mm of travel and twin preload-adjustable shock absorbers on the rear with 132 mm of travel.

The braking power was handled by two 320 mm semi-floating discs tied to four-piston calipers on the front wheel and a 245 mm disc on the rear wheel engaged by a dual-piston caliper, offering excellent stopping performance.

As for the power figures, the 2008 Ducati GT 1000 had its heartbeat set by a 992cc four-stroke L-twin air-cooled engine fed by a fuel injection system, delivering 82 hp at 8,000 rpm and 83 Nm (61 lb-ft) torque at 6,000 rpm.
