"The 999s Team USA edition is closely designed and based on the race bikes used by both the Bostrom brothers and Neil Hodgeson during the 2005 and 2006 AMA Superbike seasons.

The 2007 Ducati 999s Team USA is powered by the 143 HP 999cc Testastretta engine that delivers a track-hungry 143 hp and a Corse-derived low sump crankcase for consistent oil feed even during full race conditions. The extra power is delivered in a smooth, linear fashion to boost performance whether you are riding around hairpin bends halfway up a mountain or powering around a race track.

Ducati's considerable experience on circuits around the world can also be seen in the suspension: the front end features a TiN-treated 43 mm upside-down Ohlins fork with Teflon guides and top-out spring. The fork uses special bottoms for the radial-mounted, 4-pad front brake calipers, ensuring maximum braking performance.

At the rear end the Ohlins shock absorber, together with the box-sectioned rear swingarm, maximizes grip and the control system with one-way valve acts on the rebound damping, allowing complete separation between compression and rebound functions.

The triple-bridge front brake calipers are radial-mounted with four pistons and four pads, and are used in combination with 4.5 mm thick discs that are wide-mounted in order to ensure adequate cooling. The radial mount makes the caliper-fork mount assembly more rigid, thus improving braking system efficiency. The box-sectioned aluminum alloy rear swingarm (the same as the one on the 999R Factory race bike) gives the Bike a more marked racing look and increases on-road grip thanks to its excellent rigidity/weight ratio.

The 5-position adjustable foot rests are fitted as standard, to further adapt the Bike to rider preferences, as well as the adjustable Ohlins steering damper with special cam, which enables easier repositioning upon altering the headstock rake angle (from 23.5° to 24.5°).

All Team USA edition 999s are built exclusively for the North American market as a limited production run. Only 150 units will be made and each motorcycle will be signed by Neil Hodgson and Ben Bostrom on the tail section.

The motorcycle will be produced only as a single seat version and will be available at Ducati Dealers throughout North America beginning in August, 2006

2007 MSRP $19,995 USD"
