This is the race modified version of the base model.

The Ducati 999 superseded the Massimo Tamburini designed Ducati 916, Ducati 996 and Ducati 998 range of superbikes in 2003, and was produced through 2006. This motorcycle enjoyed great success in the World Superbike series, and was raced through the 2007 season, despite no longer being produced, pending rules changes by the series' governing body, FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme), to allow competition of the new Ducati 1098.

The 999 was designed by Pierre Terblanche, amid much controversy over its styling. It is known as a high performance, race-oriented motorcycle. With its traditional Ducati L-Twin Desmodromic Valve actuated engine layout, it has a linear power delivery, with high power and torque figures available even at low RPM. Additionally, with its high-spec suspension and trellis chassis, it was one of the finest handling motorcycles for its time.

Subsequently, more powerful 999S and 999R versions were introduced, both capable of 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in under three seconds and a top speed of over 270 km/h (170 mph).
