Ducati 1000DS review

The Supersport family represents the most traditional Ducati sport motorcycles. The Ducati SS range has been updated and expanded, in terms of both engines and componentry for a motorcyclist who seeks in a sports bike but also features such as handling, smooth power delivery and stability. Extending the engine displacements to 3-sizes is intended to give a bigger offer to a wider customer base. The Ducati 1000 DS, the only SuperSport model for 2005, is the definitive synthesis of a family of bikes that have given riders tremendous satisfaction in the past.

Ducati 1000DS

The 1000 DS combines unashamedly classical lines with an advanced high-tech, air cooled, twin cylinder engine, in a clear contrast that has tremendous appeal for the fans of Italian style riding. The Supersport DS1000 is sensuous and streamlined too, with a fuel tank shaped at the top to permit the rider to adopt a more aerodynamic position. Even the tail blends beautifully with the bikes overall styling. Thanks to clever design, the full fairing succeeds in the difficult task of combining classic style with wind protection that matches the bikes performance.
