DUCATI PS1000R 4v 

Inspired by the 1972 Imola winning Ducati 750 race bike, the PS1000 4v artfully combines a liquid cooled testastetta 998cc power plant with Paul Smart replica bodywork to create an entirely new classic bike.   Every design consideration was made to integrate the most from the engine and chassis of the 2007 Monster S4RS and unite it with the 2007 MotoST race series bodywork.


Subtle and overt modifications were made to many parts and assemblies of the bike to make the result look purposeful, timeless, and ready to race.  The frame, bodywork, tank, cooling system, electronics, and suspension were optimized to create the subtle but striking solution designed for the most experienced riders who expect the best in terms of performance and feel.

Designed to set new standards for the Paul Smart concept with the application of Ducati race inspired history, the components are interchangeable and upgradable with many Ducati Performance parts, which makes a flexible race/track day bike that in a historic race winning tradition.
