2006 Ducati 1000

Ducati’s first big — the superbikes of their era date back to the early They raced and they they were the joy of the most and fanatical riders, and now they are collectors’ items. Now, as they are seen as fine of style and performance, but above they are magnificent motorcycles to at and to ride.

These bikes made with the heart and the so they were minimalist with few frills but plenty of to ride.

It was an era when every and each component was as important as the impression of the complete motorcycle. the lustre of an engine case to the of a valve cover, from the routing of a fuel line to the treatment of the livery, every was important in its individual form and in with the total finished These were motorcycles to motorcycles to ride, motorcycles to

They were the awesome motorcycles that built the art and of Italian motorcycling.

The 1970’s was a when manufacturers were a seemingly endless string of new One or two became classics; most through life unnoticed, and were forgotten; but no-one forgot the gorgeous Ducati big race bikes or their counter parts which the fantasies of a whole generation.

style of bike, a concept of purposeful design was an idea never really died; it lay dormant, biding its time the moment was ripe to rise An essential, racing twin-cylinder, lines designed more by the of a man than the click of a mouse; details boldly in view, shapes and only the best let’s face it, they are of beauty. An agile, lightweight as advanced as this is a joy to ride, if it has got a vibrant, pulsating engine the twin-cylinder Ducati Desmo.

The couldn’t be simpler. Or could it? It a deep-rooted pedigree and the aptitude for bikes for people who really them, but then that’s all in the DNA.

The unique new family of SportClassics is the premier example on the stage of vintage styled built with the best of technology and components. Bikes in Italy, bikes built soul, to be as seductive as their of the wild 70’s, but to be as fun to ride and reliable as a modern bike

Timeless beauty is the result, and attention to detail. But then do you expect? Ducati SportClassics are motorcycles for real bikers.

But all, they are real motorcycles!


If there was a motorcycle manufacturer of turning dreams into it’s Ducati.

At the end of 2003, previewed three new concept at the Tokyo Motor Show, embodied the beauty, timeless and sporting heritage of the Ducati of the 1970’s. Now, just two later, the three bikes are off the production lines in Bologna; unprecedented creations that up a complete family of classically sport motorcycles, called the SportClassic family: the Paul 1000 Limited Edition, the 1000 and the GT 1000 (due in 2006).

The new SportClassic family the styling of the motorcycles built in workshops in the 1970’s, characterised by a racing look, with chassis and engines, complimented by with elegant rounded

To emphasis the unique style and origins of the three SportClassics, has used top-level components with original form and featuring chrome and polished that provide the final personalise the range and evoke the of the bikes from which inspired. New colours and new colour emphasize the original lines of the

Even though they the best of the past, they the latest Ducati technology and creating a thoroughly modern that lives-up to today’s of road-going performance.

The Paul L.E. Sport and GT are all powered by the 1000 DS Desmo engine. The air-cooled 90 L-Twin is the perfect to power these new sport

Slim between the legs and for all to see, the latest two valve system, fuel-injection and computer engine management ensure the 1000 DS engine is powerful, and thrilling to ride. Of course, bikes take advantage of the tubular Trellis frame perfectly enhances the beauty of the while delivering confident and consistent road manners.

bikes that are as capable as the great brakes are fundamental. quality Brembo callipers sintered pads are used, huge 320mm discs up for strong and consistent stopping

The Ducati SportClassics feature exclusive components such as wire spoke wheels with alloy rims, race inspired exhaust unique new swingarms, rear featuring side-mounted shocks, and engine parts with or black painted finishes.

PAUL SMART 1000 Edition

The new Ducati Paul 1000 L.E. is inspired by the Super Sport 750 and is a tribute to the 750 bike that the English Paul Smart took to in the 1972 Imola 200.

On a day in April 1972, Paul of Kent, England, tested the new designed race bike. It was a event in motorcycling history. On day, Smart rode a new Ducati 750 twin to a historic victory at the Imola 200, all comers. In the same race the racer Bruno Spaggiari, riding a Ducati 750, the finish line in second for a Ducati sweep of the event.

by these results, Engineer decided to introduce production with the styling and the latest solutions of the 750 Imola.

It was the beginning of the Ducati racing era and the emergence of the twin, sport bike Descendants of that historic bike led the way to the production 750SS, Isle of Man winning 900SS, SuperSports and eventually the Superbikes of

The 1974 Super Sport 750 is the crown jewel of any classic collection.

Often referred to as the Superbike, it was the first Ducati to all the performance of Smart’s race with a new elegant and trend design. The bike boasted styled components like the case Bevel Drive engine, equipped for the first with Engineer Fabio Desmodromic valve actuation The development of the Ducati Desmodromic started in the late 50’s and to evolve to this day.

street and racing engine produces still utilizes the system; it remains a significant in Ducati’s performance advantage. The 750 boasted an elegantly styled and bodywork painted in the now famous Silver colour, complimented by a painted in Sea Green. Viewed any angle the bike always in harmony with itself and its environment.

In its day it was the ultimate sport bike.

more than thirty Ducati reintroduces the same lines that represent the essence and pinnacle of beauty in the of sport motorcycles.

The new Ducati Smart 1000 Limited features unmistakeable styling, by the rounded lines of the fairing and tank. The new exhaust system, in chromed and sanded stainless has distinctive stacked twin positioned on the right-hand side of the

The unique steel tube is characterized by an elliptical GP style leg, which accommodates the of the new exhaust system.

The advanced Desmo 1000 DS engine the perfect balance of torque and performance.

The exclusive character of the Smart 1000 Limited of which only 2000 be produced, is underlined by the use of top-level Öhlins suspension and by the Metallic fairing and Sea Green frame as on the 1974 Super Sport


In the Ducati 750 Sport, which was the of the Super Sport 750, appeared in bright yellow With its solo seat and single headlamp, the Sport was a production Cafè Racer. modified and enhanced these to become the street racer of the

The clip-on handlebars, racing down the centre of the tank and seat of the Sport 750 anticipated the street performance trend and the Racer image of the period.

The new Sport 1000 captures the Cafè Racer style and beauty of the 70’s motorcycles. The features a single large round headlamp and chromed mounted on the ends of the handlebars, much typical of the custom bikes of the time.

The Sport is available in three traditional colour schemes of period: Yellow, Ducati Red and Ducati The traditional style theme is enhanced with the use of a contrasting stripe added to the fuel and tailpiece of each bike. All colours are complimented with a black frame.

The Sport suspension features 43mm forks by Marzocchi, while the suspension is handled by a fully single shock absorber by



The models all take advantage of the Ducati ALS 450 steel tubular frame, specifically engineered to the bikes precise and confident

The frame’s high torsional ensures gratifying, sure-footed manners even when to the limit.

This trellis is used on all Ducati motorcycles, but itself especially well to the of the SportClassics, and in particular with Sea finish of the Paul Smart Limited Edition linking it by way of to the original 1974 Super 750.

On the Sport 1000, the has a black paint finish and is the same as the one used on the Paul except for the exclusion of the steering mount and the position of the steering and ignition switch mounting.

the Paul Smart and the Sport clip-on handlebars. The decision to use race-inspired parts underlines the spirit of these new twin-cylinders and the of the originals. On the Sport version the are positioned 20 mm higher than on the Smart.

The Ducati SportClassic models a wheelbase of 1425 mm and trail of 103 mm, is achieved by moving the fork forward by 25 mm with respect to the axis (front wheel hub and setting fork rake at 24. The longer wheelbase compared most Ducati sport (the wheelbase of the Supersport DS, for example, is 1395mm) accentuates the styling of the 1970s, when tended to be longer. (The 750 GT, and Super Sport built 1971 and 1978, for example, had a from 1500 to 1530mm)

The Paul Smart and the Sport use a steel tube swingarm an outer diameter of 60 mm and wall of 2 mm. Both feature an elliptical arm to accommodate the new exhaust system stacked twin silencers, and a cross-member that joins the arm with the round one (on the chain where the rear shock mount is located.

The use of the cross-member, with the gusset between the and the arched tube, ensures a level of rigidity, which has a effect on ride precision.

The two legs are made from bent tubing, while the shape of the cross-member is created by technology.

This new swingarm a simple, rational system for drive chain tension.

The is tensioned by tightening the nuts on the on the end of the swingarm on stud-bolts rigidly to a sliding element inside the legs. The rear wheel is tightened by means of an external which acts by locking the inside and outside the legs.

this system is reminiscent of used on bikes from the a closer look shows the swingarm, wheel hub and all the other of the wheel set are much larger and than on the motorcycles from era.


In the suspension the whole family mounts componentry.

The Paul Smart Limited Edition is a contemporary of Paul Smart’s 750 Imola and the Sport 750 of 1974, which the sport bikes par excellence at the so nothing but the best will do. In the bike is fitted both and rear with fully Öhlins suspension.

At the rear, the stands out with its single mounted on the left-hand side, the new exhaust system with twin silencers on the right-hand

The rear shock and Öhlins belong to a range normally to racing use and thus feature a range of adjustments. The rear like the 43 mm upside down can be adjusted for spring pre-load, and rebound damping, to ensure the to perfectly tune the suspension for all conditions.

The search for perfection in detail continues with the use of a Sachs steering damper chromed rod, which the bike’s stability and ride

On the Sport 1000, suspension are handled by a 43 mm Marzocchi upside-down up front and by a Sachs shock at the with adjustable spring compression and rebound damping. The 1000’s suspension is tuned for use plus reasonable comfort as for road use.


The Smart and Sport 1000 classic wire-spoke wheels.

The Excel 17 aluminium alloy keep the overall weight of the wheel assembly down to a

The 36 chromed steel dehydrogenated are equal length and are variable tapering from 5mm at the hub to 4.4 mm at the rim. The choice to use 36 spokes keeps weight down to a minimum. The hub is made from paint-finished, aluminium.

In keeping with the SportClassics styling and appeal, the wheels are classic centre-spoke drilled and therefore utilize tube-type

The tyres themselves, produced for the Ducati SportClassics feature a design reflecting that of the motorcycles. However, they are with modern construction and advanced rubber compounds.

The front brake system on the SportClassics consist of two Brembo callipers with 30 and 32 mm diameter which are thermally insulated. The are semi-floating with a diameter of 320 mm and of 4 mm.

The spoke wheels made it to use this type of calliper, is more compact on the side the wheel. Unlike the majority of braking systems, which use pads, the callipers mounted on new family of motorcycles use sintered that ensure high performance in line with standards.

The rear brake consists of a floating single Brembo brake calliper and a 245 mm

Exhaust system

The Paul and Sport use a new black-finish stainless exhaust system. The system distinctive stacked twin on the right-hand side of the bike.

The and colours of the silencers take styling cue from the exhausts on race bikes of the 60’s and

The two manifolds, which are joined by a tube on which the lambda is mounted, are connected to the stacked silencers, which are fixed to the by means of a trellis support in steel.

These two motorcycles are the Ducati models to comply EURO 3 anti-pollution standards: the probe inside the compensation of the two exhaust manifolds combines two trivalent catalysers housed in the two The function of the lambda probe is to the oxygen in the exhaust gases and via the engine control unit, the mixture ratio during engine operating conditions. The two catalysers oxidise the unburnt and carbon monoxide, and reduce the oxide.


The three have a new layout for the electrical which helps to conceal the while giving users access to all the main components of the

The main components of the system, the ECU, fuses and voltage are located beneath the seat, in the of which there is a spacious compartment.

A Magneti Marelli 5AM control unit manages the injection and ignition of the 1000 DS The control unit, which is under the rear of the seat, is compact and features a re-programmable EPROM. It also contains the circuits for the two ignition coils a double output (each is connected to the two spark plugs of cylinder) and the two very compact series fuel injectors per cylinder).

An innovative feature is the use of a Motor for automatic control of speed, as already fitted on the Multistrada. This method of ensures perfect adjustment of speed in the many varied conditions and after extensive life. This means the throttle body can dispense the cold start mechanism, considerably simplifying the system operates the throttles.

The idling has a shutter with a horizontal driven by a lead screw/nut connected to an electric stepper It is housed in an aluminium casting which the by-pass circuit on the is made, by means of rubber The system is directly controlled by the which applies special for automatic control of idling

Style and finish

Although state-of-the-art, the Paul Smart L.E. and Sport 1000 an array of features that reflect the style of the past.

The style of the Paul Smart L.E. is accentuated by the rounded of the fairing and fuel tank, the shape of the seat, exhaust and wire wheels.

Astride the you are immediately aware of the attention to after your eyes briefly on the shiny chromed cap, you are soon drawn to the polished and anodised steering Then you spot the fully steering damper with rod fixed to the steering head an aluminium clamp. A tapered on the top crown, and aluminium tubing side to side supports the assembly.

Your gaze falls on the instrument panel white instrument faces the classic Ducati logo as on the fuel tank. The instruments are embellished by chromed trim and control buttons.

The exclusive of the Paul Smart 1000 Edition is underlined by the engraving on the top of the fairing mount, declaring the limited edition status and its to Paul Smart.

The minimalist of the original Café Racers is in the Sport 1000, which its single large headlamp and chromed mirrors. The yellow, and red colours, enhanced by the contrasting stripes down the centre of the tank and tailpiece, accentuate the of this sport …

The bike is characterised by the elegant of polished aluminium, chrome and paint.

The front end of the bike is by the finishes of the instrument panel and the top clamp with its two hallmark caps in polished, anodised alloy.

And countless details the looks of the two new Ducati SportClassics.

The shape of the seat is emphasised by its cover, which accentuates the of the seat, and features an embossed logo.

The attention to detail is to normally mundane components foot-peg brackets and foot gear shifter, rear lever and side stand in the case of the SportClassics are finished in aluminium.

The 90 twin cylinder is embellished with special such as a chromed clutch and shaft timing inspection polished valve covers and timing belt covers.

The shapes of the new tail light and turn signals are also with strong 1970’s

Another elegant reflection on the is the housing and mounting of the battery. Its plastic case, embossed the traditional Ducati logo, is by a steel base drilled for which for battery removal, on two pins on the frame.


choosing the power for the SportClassic the ideal solution was the muscular 992cc air-cooled twin-cylinder, 1000 Dual Spark known and appreciated for its abundant and excellent reliability.

Compact, and acknowledged as the ultimate expression of the philosophy of air-cooled twin the 1000 Dual Spark — already used on the Multistrada and Super Sport — represents the result of of experience and a whole series of that extend from the chambers to the crankshaft. The end result is a engine that is particularly in the mid-range and generally acknowledged as the advanced air-cooled L-twin designed. In addition to offering the advantages of an air-cooled power the 1000 DS also draws from the advanced Testastretta engine, including the special techniques used to make the heads, the use of oil-pressurized plain to support the camshafts, and the angles and of the valves.

All this, plus the exclusive Spark ignition, with its flame front, offers complete combustion, while boosting mid-range power and emission levels.

A closer at the 1000 DS engine reveals a angle between the intake and valves, one of the basic principles which the renowned Testastretta was designed, which allows for a compact combustion chamber, the volume and thus obtaining combustion. The improved efficiency of the chamber allows the engine to run on a air/fuel mixture without performance at high temperatures and reduces emissions of hydrocarbons

The camshafts are supported on oil pressurized bearings, which reduce the dimensions, the weight, and the number of parts, while also heat dispersal. The new configuration puts the camshafts in a more relationship with the valves, friction and stress on valve and thus increasing reliability.

In although the cylinder head is compact, it allows more for the intake and exhaust valves, being 45 mm and 40 mm in diameter respectively. innovations include valve made of beryllium bronze, a advanced material that better heat dispersal and and thus maintains valve more accurately over a period of time.

The 1000 DS uses an over-square 94mm and 71.5mm piston …. The are now fitted with nitrided rings, which afford sealing and significantly reduce oil The 94 mm pistons are linked to the crankshaft new connecting rods, made a new material composition (30NiCrMo4) has exceptional flow characteristics forging.

In cross section, the new are thinner side-to-side, but wider to aft, increasing strength and weight for increased reliability and

The new crankshaft is of a more compact and the oil passages have been repositioned in areas less for its structural strength. The result is a that is more rigid and less flex, making for vibration and improved reliability.

both the clutch housing and the plates are now made from a aluminium alloy. Thanks to new material, the clutch has a significantly service life due to the more wear factor of the alloy. The also now runs quieter due to tolerances and the lower resonance of aluminium compared to steel.
