Ducati 999 R 2004


The most powerful serial twin in production trapped in an ultra-rigid trellis frame, carbon fairing, Ohlins suspensions … and up to 149 Italian thoroughbreds stopped by radial calipers with 4 pistons and 4 pads. Is it a fantasy ? Almost, in fact, the new and sublime Ducati 999 R. Sold exclusively on the Internet as the 900 MHe, the 800 copies of the R were gone in less than a month. When stepping on the 999 R, apart from the fork crown engraved with the serial number of the machine and the omnipresent carbon, nothing distinguishes this version from the other sports 749 and 999. The clutch is still firm and the position less exclusive than on the 996-998. On the road, the engine offers smoothness and torque, as long as you don’t get too excited. Let’s go down and admire it before setting off on the circuit. The line does not change, but the Ohlins suspensions and all the on-board hardware make the superbike sweat through all the sides of the most exclusive Ducati. By winding on the circuit, the 999 R is already very efficient and allows you to enjoy the impeccable gearbox and simply perfect braking. The work of the suspensions is impeccable and allows quick and clean entry into the curve.

We then quickly get caught up in the game and that’s where the serious stuff begins: taken above 8000 rpm, the twin changes tone and unleashes its dark canassons (139 on this trial version – the 149 are obtained in changing the pot and the chip). The thrust of the mill becomes violent and a courageous hand full of technique is then reclaimed. You should also be wary of DUCATI 999 Rpowerful engine brake that will be remembered by losses of rear grip if you are too brutal with the clutch release. Did you find it affordable to fly a moment ago …? Once the twin tortures the rear tire, the speed traps you and you have to spit in your hands to get the 999 R through the sequences – like any Ducat ‘, it is she who will lead the dance if you do not don’t force it. A beast on the track, a work of art, an astronomical price … the madness is no longer very far, but the dream even closer.
