January 1st 2003: I’d flown back into LA, my black and blue and bruised spending Christmas week my family back in Minnesota. day I had been out snowmobile riding cross country racing) my brothers and friends, and I’d crashed than once. I hate slow on snowmobiles, especially fresh snow falling day and the weather was really warm, 10 degrees below freezing!

The bad thing about snowmobile in Minnesota is that there’s no to ride to but from one red neck bar to the I was definitely looking forward to back to LA and doing the Sunset club scene on News eve with my girlfriends.

The Casting from my Agent

No sooner had I at my West Hollywood condo the phone rang and it was my favorite buddy and Director Jim asking me if I want to test the new 999S Superbike for Pit Lane

I said “Like Yeah, dude! But who do I have to, ahhh.

Always the gentleman, Jim explained he had hold of the first new 999S off Ducati’s production line, had been flown to the States for a rock star. But the singer was no to be found when the bike in Los Angeles, possibly vacationing at the Ford Clinic for the holidays? So our contact at Ducati hooked us up the new bike to test, SoCal style, before anyone at the beer swigging wheelie British sportbike press, or the … American moto could get their greasy on one.

(Editor’s note: rock singer Robbie has been braggin that he gotthe first 999S in the but we got ours 2 weeks sooner he did. American Ducati get their press pool until April, meaning you see their testsin print in June, 6 months after broke it’s exclusive wide first test).

appeal. Hard core and supermodel Janelle Perzina be one of our official SBK Calendar at Laguna Seca World 2003. Look for her under Hodgson’s umbrella on the grid.

With me being the owner of a model Testastretta 996R I love to … and roll it my bedroom at night where it draped in my lingerie during the waiting for the weekends), Jim knew I was wet to my long legs around a new 999 and give it a try. Essentially the is comparable to the 996R in that use the same 998cc new generation 100mm bore x 63.5mm engine rated for the street at and which in race form Bayliss took to the 2001 SBK Superbike Championship. It is very that the new catalytic equipped still produces the same power as the 996R

My 2001 which retailed at $30,000 with Termignoni race and a new computer chip in the packing that upped the horsepower to For the new 999S which retails at you’ll have to spring an $3,200 bucks for the Ducati Accessories titanium race system with CPU module, but promise us an 8% additional power on the 999S up to 147hp.

The new asymmetrical system featuring different and diameter header pipes each cylinder must work well. The new 999S comes with full suspension front and rear, like the the previous R and SP models. So the new offers real value for the compared to the R models (a cheap

Ducati has now announced for sale the year 999R model details in the Pit Lane News New Bikes section) which from the new S in that it’s 104mm bore 999cc engine (same as used in the 998R) is rated at 139 hp (up 3 hp over the with the stock catalytic In race form the 104mm can turn higher rpms and more peak power, but in tuning the 104mm engine a slightly narrower powerband the 100mm bore 998cc S so the S is perhaps slightly easier to and just as quick in stock

Hi zoot Ohlins suspension lots of little knobs to fully adjustable footpegs, and brake pedals, and swingarm height. As if picking my riding apparel before riding time consuming enough!

The only other differences the 999S-03 model and the upcoming are lighter weight carbon bodywork and a magnesium instead of headlight module for a 199 kg / 439 lbs versus 193 kg / 425 lbs savings, and the newer style forks with radial You’ll have to decide if the price difference (or just difference if you buy the optional Titanium Exhaust for the S model) is worth it for

The new Ducati 999 — a face a mother could love. on the other hand, we all can love.

If Could Kill

If looks kill I’d be a double 00 British Agent and the 999 would be the prom that never gets a Honestly boys, the 999 is … in the face, just like rich old Hollywood producer at who keeps trying to pick me up. Why Terblanche didn’t give the 999 a faired-in headlight nose the old 998 or the new factory 999 Superbike or MotoGP is the question the print moto don’t have the balls to

But the reasoning has to do with wind testing and the front fairing help reduce front end similar to the panier scoopps on the edge of the side fairings. the side the bike almost do-able, while it really have a nice … you want to squeeze! ( Not suprisingly, the new chassis looks really when you’re following else like Janelle it -Ed ). Over time though, you come to like the new 999’s more than the old bike.

What else can I tell you the 999S that you haven’t reading about in all the 999 base tests the past 6 months? the upgraded track quality suspension and 13 more horsepower the base model, the S and R model get the origional Testastretta’s engine with the deep sump oil to prevent oil starvation during hard braking and acceleration.

Why the new model 999 Superbike gets the style shallow sump probably isn’t for economy of but for future use on other street where ground clearance and serviceability is more important. Ducati knows for sure, but we tell you about a problem in optional exhaust systems of this, elsewhere in this

One thing the magazines did forgot to you is the new 999 comes with a new anti system ignition system flashing red indicator light on the linked to the main ECU computer and a micro chip imbedded key just like my Mercedes. So a bike can’t be started its returned to a Ducati dealer for Cool.

Other cool includes a 2 year warranty roadside breakdown assistance in America just like my which is great when between boyfriends.
