The advanced Desmo 1000 Dual Spark engine powers the GT1000. The torquey air-cooled L-twin is the perfect match for the GT1000’s comfort and performance attributes. Alloy cylinders, with their traditional cooling fins form the classic "L" configuration, reminding us of the original Taglioni design. Slim between the legs and exposed for all to see, the latest two-valve Desmo system, fuel-injection, computer controlled engine management and Ducati Testastretta technology ensure that the 1000 DS engine is powerful, dependable and thrilling to ride.
The philosophy that lies behind the new Ducati SportClassic family finds further emphasis in this new model, which completes the range and fully lives up to the expectations and promises made at the moment of its Tokyo Motorshow launch in October 2003.
The essential beauty and timeless style of the Ducati GT models of the 1970s now comes to life again with this bike. The new Ducati GT1000 is a bike to be ridden every day, with a balance of two-up comfort and Ducati Desmo Twin performance.
