"Join us at Ducati New York on January 18th at 7:00pm to celebrate the North American unveiling of "New Blue"—a modern replica of the 1977 Daytona winning 750SS campaigned by Cook Neilson and Phil Schilling throughout the mid 1970’s. Cook Neilson and Phil Schilling built the 750SS into a remarkably successful race bike and nicknamed the motorcycle "Old Blue" in reference to the team’s attractive livery.
New Blue began life as a Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000 S and was sent to NCR’s factory for cosmetic replication and race preparation. NCR was able to remove an astounding eighty-four pounds of dry weight and add an additional 30 horsepower to the motorcycle.
Cook Neilson, Ducati North America CEO, Michael Lock and a representative from NCR will be on hand. Cocktails will be served throughout the evening. Please help us commemorate this occasion!"
