Using an aluminum frame slapped with sleek plastic and a spoiler--and riding on huge 17-inch steel wheels--the 2004 Ducati 999 provides sturdiness and sportiness. The digital dashboard at the front of the bike is loaded: with a clock, trip odometer, tachometer, lap timer, shift light, speedometer, service reminder indicator, and temperature and fuel level warning lights. Dual disc brakes in the front and a single disc brake at the back give the ‘04 Triple Nine great braking ability. A halogen headlight and a pair of side mirrors increase visibility when driving. As a theft deterrent, each bike has an engine immobilizer. Storage space is provided by a front, rear and fender rack, as well as a sidecar trunk.
