With the introduction of the Ducati 749 Testastretta, the Ducati Superbike family continues to with technical innovation and design. A perfect entry to the Ducati Superbike family, the Superbike dominating Testastretta technology has been applied to the

Ducati’s race-inspired, tubular frame is matched with suspension both front and box-section swingarm, and steering that result in confidence-inspiring and road holding. The 749 is as at home on the as it is on the track and is designed to offer an safe ride whatever the conditions. A sleek riding blends man and machine perfectly.

The Testastretta on the 749 derives from the 999 a milestone in the history of the Ducati Together with cutting-edge electronics, the special architecture of the heads optimises combustion at all and gives constantly smooth, power control.

2005 has been an exceptional for Ducati Superbikes, the range been completely revolutionised a series of stylistic and functional and, above all, a general upward shift in of power ratings and performance in engine displacements and all versions. The 749 and 999 have been made aggressive, edging closer to the line between the street and the official machine used on the racetracks.

For the Superbikes manufactured in Panigale, 2006 will be to digesting the generational shift, has taken place just two from the launch of the new series, the numerous innovations and refinements in 2005.

The decision to revolutionise the was driven by the return of Ducati to the American AMA Superbike Championship, has more stringent rules European championships with to modifications to mechanical parts and the new model is a result of the efforts at creating a machine that be race-ready straight off the production with a large number of for attitude and riding position, also being suitable for use on the The result is a superbly contemporary that is highly sophisticated and to meet the most demanding rider with the basic of the 749 and 999, and gradually approaching the S and R in a series of evolutionary steps. brings us to the current state of the with the top of the range position by a 999R packing a massive 150 HP, for 2006 also in a Xerox version, sporting the colours of the SBK ridden by James Toseland and Laconi.

The Ducati sports machines aesthetics based on the concept of aerodynamics, with fairings are highly effective also at speeds. That’s the thinking the development of a new upper fairing, to protect the rider’s head and and eliminate air turbulence.

The fairing, is higher and wider than its to increase the level of protection, a tapered lower section of the equipped with a pair of wrap-around and highly effective Protection of the rider is one of the key concepts of the generation of Ducati machines: the of air turbulence makes the cockpit comfortable — an important when riding in traffic and significant benefits on the racetrack stress and fatigue levels are allowing riders to achieve fast lap times for longer. The stopwatch has amply proved theory.

The styling and aerodynamic adopted are just two of the factors to achieve the close relationship competition and series production The box-section swingarm — light and with very torsional strength — from the world championship in the Superbike class and is the most solution for road riding and for the apart from adding to the mean appearance of the 749 and 999.

Style and function are also in the exhaust silencer, which is into the rear fairing and by a black anodised aluminium and also in the ergonomics of the machine and the possibilities for adjusting rider Since their introduction in the current Ducati Superbikes been characterised by the ability to the positions of the handlebar levers and and also the facility to adjust head rake to two positions, a that is unavailable on any other machine on the market.

There’s one final detail worthy of fore-aft adjustment of the seat-tank on single-seater versions of the machines. unique features make the 749 and 999 the machines that, of all the bikes on the market, are the closest to the thoroughbred versions.

The sports personality of machines are also reflected in the with the impressive twin engine bringing sheer prowess to all equipment versions. results have been while keeping a close on environmental concerns: all the twin engines, including the 150 HP mounted on the comply in full with Euro2 regulations.


This is at the entry level to the Ducati bike family. The range with the Dark model, the version that offers an price/performance ratio, maintaining all the of rideability on all types of roads characterise the coloured versions of the 749 in the new black version or in the classic The aesthetic solutions are identical to of the other Ducati Superbikes.


As for the other Ducati the matte black colour of the 749 identifies the entry-level machine. The version is distinguished by the presence of simplified features, such as the of the steering damper and the rear link with fixed in order to maintain an irresistible

However, it should be noted with respect to previous the sacrifices in terms of equipment been pared to the minimum, the year 2006 the Dark is equipped with the box-section alloy swingarm, exactly the higher priced versions. though it’s the smallest of the series, the basic versions of the 749 to offer styling and dimensions are identical to those of its big brothers, the protective upper fairing and the distinctive over and under units to the rear fairing integrated silencer.


In with tradition, the tubular frame is the common element by all the bikes that come off the lines at Borgo Panigale. The on the 749 features the same dimensions and stress resistance characteristics as the equipped with the more and higher performance Testastretta And despite the highly competitive of the smallest Superbikes, the suspension feature a series of high features.

These bikes are in fact with a Sachs shock for the suspension, which operates in with the box-section swingarm, for the first time also on the level 749, and a Showa fork on the front end. elements provide ample facilities for preload and damping allowing high precision of the ideal attitude for all riding
