1993 Ducati Supermono, only 65 built from 1993-1995 and was the real precursor to the 916. Come on, admit it. There wasn't anything else remotely as sexy in 1993.
The single cylinder Ducati racer was built with power to weight in mind. Carbon fiber pieces included bodywork, sub frame, fuel tank, rear sets, airbox and instrument housing. Magnesium was used for case covers, chain adjustment covers and triple clamps. Dry weight was 267 pounds (121 kg).
42mm Ohlins inverted telescopic forks were used, similar to those used on the Ducati 888 Corsa. Other notable components include a cantilevered Ohlins DU2041 shock absorber, Termignoni exhaust and 3 spoke Marchesini magnesium wheels. The front brakes were Brembo 280 mm fully floating iron front discs and Brembo P4. 30-34 racing calipers.
* Single cylinder, four stroke, liquid cooled, fuel injected
* 549cc (100 x 70mm)
* 76 bhp @ 10,500 rpm
* Weight : 267 lbs. (122 kg)
* Wheels : 17” Cast Magnesium
* Transmission: 6 speed, chain final drive
* Maximum speed: 145 mph
Need a break from this place. Have a good one.
