The Ducati 1000 SS Corsa is an evolution from the Italian bike maker’s 900 SS, resulting in a bike that came powered with a 992 cc fuel-injected two-valve engine. This bike was capable of producing 84 horsepower with a top speed of 134 mph. Quite a quick runner, isn’t it?
The bike that was on bid at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco carried a simpler fairing, one that was based on the Supersport that ran from 1990 to 1997. It may look like a throwback to the 851/888, but the tank and seat are from an earlier SS.
The mileage on the bike is unknown, but this racing motorcycle, prepared by Carlo Saltarelli, was intended for privateers and is presented in good original condition with a Conti exhaust and presentable paintwork.
It would make for an exciting track day racer despite not carrying any racing history. The bid price for the bike was at €5,000 - €7,000, which is around $6,300 to $8,800 based on current exchange rates. Actual selling price was $3,030.
Chanel’s new marketing campaign for the Coco Mademoiselle perfume just got that much hotter with the addition of a suited up Keira Knightley mounted atop a Ducati 750 Sport. This video is just a ’teaser’ of the new Coco Mademoiselle film ’Gabrielle’ directed by Joe Wright. The full length version will debut on March 21st, 2011 on the Chanel website.
TheDucati 750 Sport is powered by a V2, four-stroke engine that delivers a total of 72 HP and sprints the bike all the way to 128.6 mph. Typically, we like our Ducati bikes in red, but the model used in this commercial is covered in a drab beige, no doubt to promote Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume. Keira Knightley is even wearing a smoking hot beige leather catsuit to match. All we can say is that we can’t wait for the full video to be released!
