The NCR New Blue – Sport 1000 track bike/replica

Quite possibly the coolest looking track bike available, NCR's New Blue.

Quite possibly the coolest looking track bike available, NCR’s New Blue. Weighs about the same as your average 250cc and looks about as hot as your average European supermodel. “A homage to Cook Neilson’s 1977 Daytona victory on a Ducati 750SS, known as OLD BLUE, tuned by Phil Schilling. This was the first victory for an Italian brand in the USA, and therefore a huge boost for that market.” How does it ride? Here’s a vid review by MCN (Motor Cycle News)…

“The platform is the new Ducati Sport 1000S 07, completely tuned by NCR and made lighter in all its parts, reaching a weight of 150 kg compared to the 188 kg of the street legal model (that is a weight reduction of 38 kg, or over 25%), and the power has been increased by 40% reaching 116 HP. The engine is the new 1100NCR, components and braking system are of racing origin: everything is made in Ohlins, Brembo and Poggipolini Titanium. The exhaust system is an extraordinary titanium 2-1-2, weighing 4 kg.”
