The of the bike has changed from a to a 900 Superlite with a different being the most prominent Significant use of carbon fibre in panels has resulted in more loss. The tank is a hollow fibre shell as the fuel is located at the rear of the bike.

side fairings are now carbon and where constructed by Ducati from the original fairings.


The transmission used is the 900SS unit. No internal were required until the was fitted. With the bike 190HP at launch, severe are applied to the output shaft of the
