One of the most respected motorcycle manufacturers in the world, Ducati is a name well known outside its Italian home by motorcycle aficionados that enjoy the style, speed and high quality of Ducati line. Featuring a number of different motorcycle types from touring & sport touring, dual-sport and off-road, Ducati brings the dream of riding on the open road to millions of people around the world.
Interestingly enough, from the time Antonio Ducati founded his company in 1926 until after World War 2, the company produced vacuum tubes, condensers and other radio parts. It wasn’t until a popular motorcycle manufacturing company in Italy, SIATA, was purchased by Ducati in 1950 did they enter the world of motorcycles. Ducati moved quickly to make a positive impression on the world stage. In 1952, Ducati introduced a larger version of the older SIATA models at the annual Milan show. While it was not a great success, it did spark a renewed drive for excellence that Ducati pursued through the next decade. By the 1960s, Ducati had produced the fastest 250 cc engine on the road with their famed “Mach 1”. By the early 1970s, Ducati had released a V-twin with the trademarked desmodromic valve.
By the 1980s however, Ducati was purchased by Cagiva, although the name “Ducati” would still be used for their cycles. Today, Ducati still sets the standard for high quality motorcycles, reflecting the style of great Italian design for their touring and sport versions. The current Ducati line of motorcycles includes some impressive models, many of which are highly touted and sell around the world. Here is a list of the current line up; Ducati 749, Ducati 848, Ducati 1098, Ducati 1198, Ducati 1199, Ducati Diavel, Ducati Hypermotard 1100, Hypermotard 1100S, Hypermotard 796, Ducati Monster 696, Ducati Monster 796, Ducati Multistrada (1000DS/1100DS).
Impact of Carbon Fiber Motorcycle Parts on Ducati
There is little doubt that carbon fiber parts have created a powerful impact on the motorcycles scene. Carbon fiber is more than twice as strong as steel, yet weighs less than 1/4th the amount. This means that replacing steel parts with carbon fiber improves the overall performance of the motorcycle by lowering the weight and increasing impact resistance.
What follows is a list of the Ducati motorcycle Accessories and Parts in carbon fiber available for Ducati models; Alternator Cover, Clutch Plate Cover, Cockpit Cover Frame, Cover Seat, Drive Belt Cover, Front Fairing Nose, Supper Fairing & Lower Fairing, Front Mudguard & Rear Mudguard, Fuel Tank Cover, Heal Guard Plates, Headlight Cover, Hugger, Intake Scoop, Seat Insert, Side Body Panel, Swingarm Cover & Tail Guard Cover Protection, Under-Tray, Windscreen and more. For overall style, quality and innovative design, Ducati is the name of Italian motorcycles.
