Ducati 999 Testastretta test


Here at is the latest in the legendary line of Superbikes. Not an easy task to the 916- which became the 998 marked the 1990s- not just for its beauty but also for it-s results.

The Ducati engineers had the task of changing something was perfect to begin with. The is anything but a disappointment and that-s the important thing.


original lines have the purity of their predecessors- only way forward. Since ergonomics and mechanical integration at the top of its specifications- the 999 could not simply be be an evolution it could only be a

The styling of the body attempts to the ergonomics of its rather chaotic The riding position is still spartan- the saddle being as as a slice of Parma ham and the protection is a gesture. On the other hand- the has excellent mobility and there are adjustments to modify the rider-s The handlebars- footrests and even the are all adjustable.

The hand controls are in the Ducati mould and we are as admiring as when we look at the finishing and the quality of the materials used. The 999 has a complete electronic control apart from the rev counter is still analogue. When it to criticism- it-s worth that the 999 is still short on details with its hopeless view mirrors- its non existent and an inadequately insulated saddle- when it comes to the hypothetical

On the road: A SUPERBIKE

The body and the cycle are the essential areas of change. to its predecessor- the 999 has taken a couple of steps forward when it to the actually making the bike to ride. The chassis is even precise but the previous models always needed physical and some serious anticipation. You no need that kind of to ride the 999.

The position- which is as exclusive as is now more natural and the chassis is docile to handle when direction as well as being to place. The second striking is concerns the 999-s brakes. the domain of the " R " the new Brembo brake system its 320 mm discs and its 4 pad callipers has quite precision- progressiveness and power. The brake is still rather to dose though.

Naturally- we are in the presence of a racing adapted for the road- so it should not be that comfort is not a key- the absorption has seen some in the matter. In conclusion- sticking as to its brand image- the Ducati intends to remain an exclusive that is far more at ease on a or on really good tarmac it is on rough roads. That the Ducati has been watered a bit- not just to please the mortals but also in order to a few tenths of a second on the circuit.
