Ushering in the new century was the first of Ducati’s storied 916 series bikes: the 996. The 996 immediately had big shoes to fill as predecessor to the four-time world-championship-winning 916. The 916 was the choice ride of superbike racing’s winningest rider Carl Fogarty, and it was also endorsed by Formula 1 racing great Ayrton Senna in the form of a special-edition, limited-production 916 bearing his name. But this was a new era, and the team at Ducati set out to once again raise the bar for the world of superbike racing.
The 996 came in base (Biposto), S or — for Europe exclusively — the hardcore SP model. Later in life, the SP edition bike would be phased out to make room for the 996R, which featured the newly minted 998cc Testastretta engine. The 996 never achieved the race-winning glory of its predecessor the 916, which is most likely due to the fact that it was in production for such a short period. Only produced from 1999 to 2001, Ducati 996 parts can sometimes be difficult to find, but you’ll be happy to know we’ve got a full line of them available at Design Corse.
