999r

Have you had the chance to see this in person? What a machine! The Marchesini wheels and liberal use of carbon fiber are enough to make me .

The styling is controversial, but it's almost like sex on wheels.

Sweet Bike!

Well, this my first post! Only right to post in the Ducati section- Best bikes in the world! Being that i'm not a current bike owner, when I do get one, It will be the Supersport 800 in yellow, would be a good option for a rookie driver No stunt tricks for me anytime soon :LOL:




Great site!

Very sweet looking bike
Test drove 999, great handling bike with nice power.
But do not expect to drive bike more than 200 miles in a day.

Yea, I got to see one, I got to touch it!!! All!!!! the fairings are carbon the exhaust shroud is carbon, the beltcovers are carbon. Not to mention the magnesium headlight capsule. I got to ride a 999S model. Wow. I'm gonna have to through about $5k at my 996 to make it even come close to the S. I can't even imagin how the R rides. Oh yea I almost forgot, radial master cylinders and radial calipers. Full Ohlins suspention and special swing arm exclusive to R models. the list go on and on. I wish I had an extra $30K just lying around. Of course if I had that I'd probably just wait for the MotoGP RR bike that is comming out soon!!!!

I would love to have one of these!
Looking at a new 999s. Why not a R?
It's only a GSXR or R1 away from the S model!

The first to do it was Aprilia on the Futura. I believe all of the 999's are that way.

Now take that back! There's nothing about the 999 that's anything like a Suzuki.

Just for the record;
Ducati & Suzuki, claim putting the signals in the mirror's decreases wind drag and offers wider visibility.
Thanks to wind tunnel testing. (body work is'nt just for looks anymore)

I think it's new parts to sale for more $$$ & less parts to build.
