The Ducati 999 superseded the Massimo Tamburini designed Ducati 916, Ducati 996 and Ducati 998 range of super bikes in 2003, and was produced through 2006. This motorcycle enjoyed great success in World Superbike, and was raced in the series through the 2007 season, despite no longer being produced, pending rules changes by the series’ governing body, FIM, to allow competition of the new Ducati 1098.

The 999 was designed by Pierre Terblanche, amid much controversy over its divisive styling. It is known as an extremely high performance, race oriented motorcycle. With its traditional Ducati L Twin Desmodromic Valve actuated engine layout, it has a linear power delivery, with high power and torque figures available even at low RPM. Additionally, with its high spec suspension and trellis chassis, it is one of the finest handling motorcycles for its time.

Subsequently, more powerful 999S and 999R (provided with 102 dB Termignoni race-spec exhaust) versions were introduced, both capable of 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in under three seconds; and a top speed of over 170 mph (+270 km/h).

The 2005 Ducati 999S won the Maxisport category for the prestigious international Master bike 2005 comparison and finished 2nd overall. It has received critical acclaim from many corners, such as MCN of the U.K. which called it “simply the best V-Twin on the planet”, and Motorbikestoday.com, which described it “the most desirable, most exciting road bike on the planet” in 2004. MotorcycleUSA.com described it as “stupendous” and “the epitome of V-Twin power.”

The Ducati 999 features a fully adjustable suspension system. Upside-down 43 mm Showa forks with low friction TiN treatment and a Showa rear shock provide a smooth ride on all road and track conditions. And even more, the 999 is equipped with a new aluminium alloy rear swing-arm, like that on the 999 Factory race bike.

An adjustable riding position allows for optimum ergonomics, performance, handling, and control on the road and the racetrack. Fitting the bike to individual rider size is accomplished with adjustable foot pegs and adjustable rake, suspension and a seat/tank combination on the single-seat version with 20 mm of fore and aft travel. A well-loaded front end ensures manageable and precise control, at the same time taking the weight off the rider’s wrists. The entire range is equipped with radial master cylinders with built-in reservoirs offering a wider steering angle for easier city riding.
