Ever want to ride a sportclassic? Demo Week in Sept!!!

Link Here...

From Ducati's website:



Ducati North America presents the SportClassic Demo Week from September 1-8 at participating dealerships.
With the runaway success of the 1098 and now the Hypermotard, it's only natural to honor Ducati's history and the models that have been revolutionizing motorcycling for decades. Come ride the modern interpretations of Fabio Taglioni's original 1970s Ducati sport bikes—these motorcycles are more than showroom displays of modern classics, they are also brimming with performance.

These last days of summer are the perfect time to experience the Sport and GT models—all powered by the outstanding Desmo 1000 Dual Spark engine. The torquey air-cooled L-twin is the perfect match for the SportClassics' comfort and performance attributes. Alloy cylinders, with their traditional cooling fins form the classic "L" configuration, reminding us of the original Taglioni design. Slim between the legs and exposed for all to see, the latest two-valve Desmo system, fuel-injection, computer controlled engine management and Ducati Testastretta technology ensure that the 1000 DS engine is powerful, dependable and thrilling to ride. Click here to learn more about the SportClassic lineup.

Each participating dealer will have a Sport 1000 and GT 1000 available for demo so stop in Saturday, September 1 through Saturday, September 8 to ride a piece of history. Enjoy food and drinks as you peruse SportClassic Ducati Performance accessories and vintage-styled apparel. Details may vary by dealership, but one thing will remain constant—the essential beauty, timeless style, emotion, and performance of the SportClassics.

As an added bonus, any SportClassic purchased from a participating dealer during the month of September will receive $500 worth of Ducati Performance Parts or Apparel.

I like the sport classic even if the magazine guys trashed its performance I am going to attempt to attend the demo somewhere close by. I love the look of old bikes I just want to chop up my own not spend a bunch of money and wait six months....
