A stock 748 will make about 90 hp.  The biggest drawback to the bike is it's weight.  You've got to remember that this bike was designed in the early 1990's and while it was very competitive in the mid to late 1990's all of the bikes have moved on since including Ducatis. 

With that in mind and based on those figures the Duc 1000 DS should also be a ULSB.

Ok, so what can I race with my bike designed in 1903?  Is that where the 1203cc's comes from?  Or is that the year it was really designed?

Come on Dave the Buell is clearly heavier than the 748....hence the Buell races in lightweight and the 748, being even lighter, is in Ultra-lightweight.  Totally logical.

Ducati 748 should not have been included as a legal machine in Ultra-Light

Wording should have been twin cylinder liquid cooled, pre 1999 model year, up to 700cc

I had not read this thread as I figured it had to do with SV650, Ninja650 for next year and was just going to let ideas flow.

The correction will be made for 2009

Hehe... just thought I'd let you know, even if they do the SV/EX allowance in '09, we just decided that I'm running my Hawk next year again... out of spite.  :lmao:

Dang it. I was hoping that sooner or later my 2002 GSXR1000 would be eligible for this class also.
