High engine revs are allowed by a special valve retainer collet system used to secure the steel intake and exhuast valves. The system is also used on the R versions as well as the World Superbike and MotoGP race engines.

The L-twin Testastretta engines are very compact, making the finished motorcycles incredibly narrow and agile, much like their racing cousins. They also offer excellent torque and remarkably vigorous power delivery compared to four cylinder engines. Ducati Superbikes have incredible acceleration and provide outstanding riding thrills.

The suspension is fully adjustable at both ends and features a TiN-treated upside down Showa fork at the front and a Showa rear shock. Thanks to a wide steering angle (28.5°), the steering damper, adjustable headstock rake (from 23.5° to 24.5°) and foot rests that can be set at any of 5 different positions, the Ducati 749s can be adapted to suit individual riding styles. In addition, on the single-seat version, the seat-tank assembly is adjustable longitudinally by 20 mm, thus giving the rider the opportunity to personalise his or her riding position on the bike for track use.
