Although I'm a bigger fan of middleweight bikes I'm disappointed yet happy that it doesn't look better then the liter bike... 848 for me. All dayyyyyy..

Interesting picture. The appearance is overall consistent with the 1199 deapite that sore thumb of a swing arm configuration. I do like the idea of implementing distinguishable visual characteristics between the liter bike and this model.

Hate the swingarm. How to make the bike look bland in one easy step.

I can't believe they'd go back to a double swingarm.

2014 Ducati 899 leaked photo...

The double sided swingarm is there for weight savings. Being that the 1199 comes in at 415 wet I wonder if they were able to shed at least another 15lbs for a sub 400lb weigh in (although a 380lb wet weight would be delicious-maybe with full exhaust/cat delete haha). I guess they weren't kidding about making the 749/799/849/899 into a track weapon and not just a less powerful/cheaper 1199.

I like it. I am not a fan of the single arm from a function standpoint.

DSS- disgusting. But as said- if it were true and provided significant weight reduction I guess I'd be down.

Everyone will forget about the swingarm if it does well on the track.

Not sure I believe it. Too ugly.

Looks like a 696 swingarm on an 1199

Ducati claim that with the current stamping/casting weldment their SSS is lighter than most DSS. If they went DSS it's probably to control costs.

I'm wondering why the heatshield isn't as big on this one... It has the cylinder shields, but not the big header shield. Either its not gonna get as hot, or I think someone missed it on the photochop lol

Either way it be cool to have one come out.
