2006 Ducati 749 Dark, Extremely rare 749 Dark! ASV Levers, Frame Sliders, Open Clutch Cover, Tail Tidy. New rear tire going on now. Do not miss out on this one!!! The 2006 Ducati 749 is a member of the Italian company""s midsize family of sportbikes. Designed by Pierre Terblanche, the ""Seven-four-nine"" features an innovative L-Twin, liquid-cooled desmodromic valve actuated engine. The 2006 Ducati 749 Dark comes with a 108 horsepower, 748cc DOHC engine that""s capable of 59 lb-ft of torque at 8500 rpm. The Marelli electronic fuel injection with 54mm throttle body is precise and responsive. Ducati""s 749 series boasts an impeccable Italian-style design with all-new aerodynamic fairing that helps protect the rider""s head and shoulders while virtually eliminating air turbulence at high speeds. The extra-width and height of the fairing, as well as the tapered lower section of the 749""s body, helps improve overall rider comfort and reduces stress and fatigue on longer rides. Like several other of Ducati""s racers, the 749 has a rigid tubular steel trellis frame, a 43mm Showa inverted fork on the front, and fully adjustable Sachs monoshock on the back. With its 55.9-inch wheelbase and 24.5-degree rake, the 749 is nicely agile and capable of handling the tightest corners. Braking is smooth and responsive, thanks to dual 320mm semi-floating discs with four-piston, four-pad calipers on the front and a two-piston, 240mm disc on the rear. The 2006 Ducati 749 is a machine that""s inspired by the Italian manufacturer""s racetrack legacy. Because of this, its handlebars are noticeably lower than one might expect. To help offset the odd ergonomics, Ducati outfitted the 749 with an adjustable seat and variable foot peg mounts, so the rider can make subtle adjustments in order to find his most comfortable position.
