Motorcycle Tyres for Ducati Sportclassic GT1000 Motorcycle
From its home base in Bologna, Italy, Ducati has created some of the world’s most iconic motorcycles. From the 50cc Cucciolo or Pup motorised bicycle to the modern dream machines, Ducati’s are always stylish and always innovative with their trademark desmodromic timing first unveiled in 1956 when a desmo Ducati lapped the field at the Swedish GP. Bringing racing power and performance to the road gives Ducati the edge when it comes to creating supremely stylish motorcycles.
If you’re looking for the ultimate touring bike then the Ducati 1000 GT Sportclassic could just be it. Combining style, elegance and plenty of raw performance and power, this is a grand tourer par excellence, harking back to the timelessness of the original 1970 Ducati GT bikes.
With 67 ft/lbs of torque at 6000 rpm, the Ducati 1000 GT Sportclassic has plenty of power for cruising and overtaking thanks to the air-cooled, L-twin valve Desmo 1000 Dual Spark engine. Paired with Marelli electronic fuel injection, computer controlled energy management for optimised efficiency and Ducati’s own Testastretta technology, this is a thrilling, power-packed ride that can handle any terrain with ease.
Built on the trademark tubular steel trellis, this bike harks back to the glory days of Fabio Taglioni. Weighing in at a slimline 185 kg, the 1000 GT Sportclassic is available in iconic Ducati red and features a 6-speed gearbox with wet multiplate clutch and hydraulic control. There’s also a firm but forgiving modern suspension that delivers an agile, responsive ride via the highly grippy tyres (front 120/70 R 17, rear 180/55 R 17).
Although Ducati only made this stylish bike between 2005 and 2008, it remains a timeless classic with real ‘look at me’ Italian flair. From the solid build quality and overall reliability, this flamboyant tourer is an exquisitely detailed machine. With superb paintwork, a top speed of 134mph and 92bhp, this is a real attention grabber.
