Features: - Beautiful condition all round. This is number 313 of a very limited run of bikes.
The 'R' version of the 749 was specifically built to win the World Super Sport championship. At the time it was the highest specification Ducati to have left the factory. The Supersport championship had very strict rules about altering of engines and stock parts so Ducati built this bike as an out and out racer straight from the factory. The model is above and beyond the 749S with larger valves, lighter body, shorter stroke and a higher RPM and hence more torque and power. The 749R also came with a larger tank, slipper clutch, Ohlins forks, racing cams, and titanium valves. Preferred by many to the Ducati 999 and for good reason. The smaller engine makes just the right amount of power for the chassis in certain road riding situations though. The 749 has a kind of balance, an addictive precision in its steering, acceleration and braking that makes it a machine that surprises riders with its understated ability.
