Ducati Announces the GT1000 in Two Tone Color Scheme
Born as a tribute to the essential beauty of the Ducati GT models of the 1970s, the GT 1000 is ideal for everyday use, thanks to its perfect balance between comfort, whether you ride alone or two-up, and the performance of the Ducati Desmo twin-cylinder engine.
Every part and component is made with the highest quality materials and designed with performance in mind – and that’s just as it should be for a bike based on the historic models from Ducati’s heritage. Despite being unashamedly classic in inspiration, the GT is still a thoroughly modern Ducati when it comes to power, handling, safety and a thrilling ride.
The feeling you get astride the GT 1000 is one of comfort and complete control of the bike. The riding position is comfortable and upright. The double-seat is comfortably padded, has a classic design and boasts the Ducati logo in white on the back.
The rider’s footrests are set forward for maximum comfort and optimum ground clearance. And because the GT 1000 is a true two-seater, the position of the pillion footrests is designed for maximum comfort even on long trips.
The form of the GT 1000 represents a modern interpretation of the classic lines of the original GT of the 1970s. The slim, ergonomic fuel tank has two indents on the sides to accommodate the rider’s legs comfortably, and is crowned with a chromed fuel cap.
The front and rear mudguards, and side panels are reminiscent of the 1970s originals. Many parts, such as the top yoke and handlebar clamps are made of polished aluminum, which compliments with the chrome finish of the wheels, handlebars, rear-view mirrors, instrument panel and other components.
The exhaust system is also chromed and is made up of manifolds with a double wall construction to keep the chromed surface untarnished over time.
