Ducati Sportclassic Demo Week

Aug 08, 2007

With the runaway success of the 1098 and now the Hypermotard, it's only natural to honor Ducati's history and the models that have been revolutionizing motorcycling for decades. Come ride the modern interpretations of Fabio Taglioni's original 1970s Ducati sport bikes - these motorcycles are more than showroom displays of modern classics, they are also brimming with performance.

These last days of summer are the perfect time to experience the Sport and GT model's all powered by the outstanding Desmo 1000 Dual Spark engine. The torquey air-cooled L-twin is the perfect match for the SportClassics' comfort and performance attributes. Alloy cylinders, with their traditional cooling fins form the classic "L" configuration, reminding us of the original Taglioni design. Slim between the legs and exposed for all to see, the latest two-valve Desmo system, fuel-injection, computer controlled engine management and Ducati Testastretta technology ensure that the 1000 DS engine is powerful, dependable and thrilling to ride.

Enjoy food and drinks as you peruse SportClassic Ducati Performance accessories and vintage-styled apparel. Details may vary by dealership, but one thing will remain constant - the essential beauty, timeless style, emotion, and performance of the SportClassics.
