In the 1970s, sport riders were modifying their street bikes with some of what they saw being used on the racetrack, including clip-on handlebars, rear set footpegs, and ‘fast’ colours. This was done just as much for the look as for increased performance. The Café Racer style was born.
A classic for today - now coming with seating for two.
The new 2007 Sport 1000 biposto, with a comfortable dual seat, raised handlebars and classic twin shocks, elegantly captures the bold style of the early bikes. A removable rear seat cover gives the Sport 1000 biposto the Café Racer look, but when removed reveals a seat for your favourite passenger.
The Sport 1000 is also available in the monoposto version. Whether you select the monoposto or biposto version, the Sport 1000 is built with quality throughout.
The Sport 1000 biposto mounts high performance Marzocchi front forks with classic brushed aluminium surfaces. For rear suspension it mounts a massive 60mm swingarm, with twin fully adjustable Sachs shocks. The unique suspension layout of the Sport 1000 biposto ensures that its look matches the classic appeal of the bike, while still delivering the superior road holding and performance you expect from Ducati.
