The Ducati 748 is one of the most recognisable sport bikes ever created. The definitive 'R' version of the 748 introduced in 1999 was a high performance, track tuned, race ready machine which took off where the 748SPS left off.

Compared to the standard Ducati 748 the 748R had a more powerful engine, superior suspension and brakes, lightweight wheels and carbon fiber fairing sections.

The 748R was used as a race homologation bike for the World Supersport and World Superbike series.

The engine of the 748R had larger valves, more extreme camshafts, stronger titanium conrods and a larger airbox when compared to the standard 748.

The Ducati 996 race bike based steel trellis frame was complemented by titanium-nitride coated Showa forks and Ohlins rear monoshock. The wheels were lightweight Marchesini units.

Although the 748R is a bit too hardcore for regular road use, it comes into its own on the track.
