The Ducati 749 was in production from 2003 until 2007 when it was succeeded by the Ducati 848. Even today, the 749 remains a sought-after secondhand bike and presents a compelling alternative to similarly powered 600cc superbikes from Japan.
This 2005 Ducati 749 was modified by Jett Design Garage of Washington, DC. Custom bodywork includes a modified front fairing and a hand-built aluminum tail section finished in silver with Italian flag graphics. Additional features include a hand-built Alcantara solo seat and an adjustable Penske rear shock with a remote reservoir, along with a lightweight chain, sprockets, and rearsets.
It is powered by a 748cc L-twin equipped with a lightweight flywheel, a racing exhaust system, and a custom tune. The engine is paired with a six-speed transmission featuring an SB Electronics quick shifter and a Yoyodyne dry slipper clutch.
