The Ducati 749R is a race-version of the Ducati 749 sports bike. It was manufactured in limited numbers from 2003 to 2007. Each had their production number stamped on the steering head.

The Ducati 749R was lighter than the standard model thanks to a number of carbon fiber components.

The engine was modified and had a shorter stroke but increased bore which allowed it to function more efficiently at high revs. It produced 121 horsepower at 10,500 rpm. A healthy increase over the standard bike. To cope with the extra power the engine also had improved internal components, including racing cams, titanium valves and connecting rods. The engine was lightened by the use of magnesium head covers and carbon fiber belt covers.

The Ducati 749R also beneftted from a slipper clutch and an enlarged fuel tank. Ohlins forks and a steering damper helped improve the handling.

The overall result of the enhancements to the Ducati 749R was a significant improvement to both handling and straight-line performance.
