The new ST3s ABS brings together the very best components - derived from extensive race track experience - and unparalleled comfort, making it ideal for day-to-day use or long-range touring.

The 992 cc Desmo3 is the ideal match to the ST3s ABS chassis with its fully adjustable TiN-coated 43 mm upside down Showa forks, a fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock, a lightweight aluminium rear swingarm and ultra-light Marchesini 5-spoke wheels.

The Brembo brake system, with ABS specially designed for sport oriented riders, features a design that manages the front and rear brake circuits separately. Additionally, the ABS system can be de-activated by the rider, and shuts itself off in the event of a malfunction.

The instrument panel includes an analogue rev-counter and an on-board computer with liquid crystal display, which, in addition to standard info it keeps tabs on fuel consumption, range on remaining fuel, and more. And as an added convenience, headlight beam height adjustment is electronically controlled from the instrument panel.

For added security, all the bikes in the ST family feature an antitheft immobilizer system, making it impossible to start the engine without the unique electronic ignition key. With the introduction of the 2006 range, Ducati Sporttouring motorcycles are now even more environmentally responsible, and comply with the strict Euro3 emissions standards.

I like Ducati’s big bikes, aside from the great style of the bike, it brings out your masculine side.
