Ducati ST3 ABS 2006. La casa di Borgo Panigale sceglie il prestigioso Motorcycle and Scooter Show di Birmingham (Gran Bretagna) per presentare il Model Year 2006 della Ducati ST3 ABS, destinata ad assumere un ruolo dominante nella gamma delle sport tourer bolognesi.
La dotazione tecnica si conferma di buon livello, con la forcella Showa regolabile impreziosita dal trattamento TiN ed il monoammortizzatore posteriore Ohlins mentre il forcellone in alluminio ed in cerchi acinque razze valorizzano l’estetica della ST3.
Il propulsore è il noto Desmo3 bicilindrico a tre valvole per cilindro, con omologazione Euro3 e raffreddamento a liquido.
Il comparto frenante si perfeziona grazie al sistema di antibloccaggio ABS tarato secondo specifiche sportive, per non penalizzare troppo la guida “allegra” pur prevenendo pericolosi scompensi nelle frenate su fondo scivoloso. Prezzi, foto e dati saranno diffusi a novembre, sempre che non vogliate prendere il primo volo per Birmingham ed assistere alla presentazione. Non preoccupatevi Infomotori.com penserà a voi!
In the run-up to the presentation of its complete Model Year 2006 range at EICMA in Milan from 15 to 20 November, Ducati chose the prestigious Motorcycle and Scooter Show in Birmingham (UK) to preview two of its new models due out next year. The first is an exclusive version of the 999R, in the form of a “Xerox replica”, which practically duplicates the official 2005 Superbike World Championship bike right down to the graphics and smallest details – and the second is the new ST3s ABS, Ducati’s high-performance sport-touring bike, which will top the range for 2006 and comes complete with ABS and other substantial improvements in terms of equipment and finish.
The 999R “Xerox replica” has a captivatingly aggressive look, in this even more exclusive racing version. Adorned with the graphics of the official bike, this special version of the 999R also features black anodised steering head and footpegs and the red Brembo Racing logo on the radially mounted brake callipers. A further exclusive detail with respect to the standard model is the fully adjustable Ohlins ‘Racing’ rear shock absorber, with dual adjustment of compression damping for high and low relative speeds, body in aluminium and counterspring.
For lovers of “race replica” bikes, there is also a kit containing red adhesive wheel trim and dedicated stickers for the headlamp fairing.
Like the 999R, the “Xerox replica” is also supplied as standard with a racing kit (the Termignoni exhaust kit consisting of a horizontal, cylindrical half-manifold, in place of the standard part of the exhaust system, which houses the catalytic converter, ‘open’ silencer and carbon cover specifically for the open silencer), which further accentuates the sporting spirit of this incredible, high-performance Ducati built for track and competition use.
Another not to be missed preview is the new ST3s ABS , which will spearhead the Ducati Sport Touring range as of 2006.
The top-end cycle parts (fully adjustable Showa forks with TiN treatment; fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock absorber; aluminium swingarm; five-spoke wheels), are complemented by a further safety feature in the form of ABS brakes. These were developed in response to the sporting nature of the bike, to ensure maximum safety without compromising performance even at the limit.
The new ST3sABS shares the same versatile Desmo3 liquid-cooled 3-valve engine as the ST3, for an optimum combination of the low-rev torque typical of 2-valve engines with the power of 4-valve units. It also meets Euro 3 anti-pollution standards.
