The DB5R gets serious for 2007 now that it has been upgraded with Ducati’s air-cooled Dual-Spark 1100 V-Twin powerplant and a dry clutch. Only the R version of the bike is available this Year: ,
The DB5R is the most extreme version of the DB5. With the R, the DB5’s superb agililty and easy handling have reached new heights.
LighWeight: and agile. Thanks to these two characteristics, this twin-cylinder sports bike with its classic Ducati 1000 DS Engine: produces a unique and emotive riding experience: lightning-fast corner entry and mid-corner speeds can be achieved, with super-precise lines and easy direction changes. Handling is the best you can ask for in a motorcycle born for the racetrack. Suspension is Ohlins – the front gets fully-adjustable (preload, rebound and compression) 43mm upside-down forks with TiN-coated stanchions, while the rear gets a fully adjustable (preload, rebound, compression and ride height) monoshock. These components work extremely well in such a lightWeight: chassis. The DB5R gets a taller ride height than the standard DB5 to make it turn in even quicker. This results in an even sportier ride.
The powerful and progressive brakes are Brembo, with a 320mm front discs (these are bigger than the standard DB5’s 298mm discs) that are squeezed by four-piston radial calipers, which in turn are operated by a 19mm radial master cylinder. On the rear you’ll find the typical 230mm disc with Brembo caliper. A pair of gorgeous forged aliminium OZ Racing wheels complete the package. These lightWeight: components reduce inertia to a minimum, letting you fly into corners and change direction faster than ever.
The brake and clutch levers that bend in a crash, preventing them from snapping off, further justify the “R” in this Bimota’s name. Then of course, there’s the slipper clutch that works so well it lets the rider to brake and slam down the gears at the very last moment, and still the bike remains composed. The state-of-the-art slipper clutch makes it almost impossible to lock the rear wheel under the heavy V-twin Engine: braking.
The DB5R’s bodywork is made entirely of carbon fibre, as are the airbox and Engine: covers. The lot is painted in red, green and white – the traditional colours of the Italian flag. This encapsulates the spirit of Italian sports bikes, as does the roar from the Engine: that sounds more glorious than ever thanks to the gorgeous titanium silencers.
