Ducati 749 (Discontinued????)

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' at netrider.net.au started by newbikerider, Nov 21, 2006.

  1. I am looking at putting down some serious cash to change from my trusty CBR600 to a 749 Duc. Wanted to take a look at the bike show but it was a no show, and just noticed that its not on Ducati N.American site anymore...

    Does anyone know if the 749 is still an 'official' model??


  2. Only a guess at this stage: ucati has always released their smaller 4-valve a few months after the big one, so something about he new ‘749’ might surface early in the new year.
    I don’t think they’ll drop it as it’s going OK in Supersport & there’s quite a few out on the roads.
    A lot of people believe the smaller 4-valve sports Ducati is ‘better’ than the big one (like me).
  3. I believe the 999 will be repalced by the 1098 next year and "eventually" the 749 will be replaced by a 848, but that could be another year away.

    Ducati Australia
  4. +1

    Although if someone gave me a 998, I'd have to reconsider my stance!
