Was I in for a culture shock? I thought so when I was presented with the latest 2003 Ducati 620 Sport after just returning from testing the latest 999 and a new ST4S! There I was standing in front of a spartan motorcycle which at first glance looked as if it had just been re-born from the 70’s. With its half fairing, traditional Desmo L Twin Engine: , slim Frame: , even slimmer tyres and fairly solid suspension (better than last Year: though) I really thought I was in for a trip down memory lane! The little 620 Sport had only done 140 miles and was tight as hell! It felt like it the minute I started to ride it away, with its somewhat stiff 5 speed gearbox and hard pull clutch I was not looking forward to living with this bike for the next week or so.
The first ride was mainly on dual carriageways and motorway for about 80 miles so we had a little time to get aquainted and to get a few straight miles under its belt. Surprisingly even with now just about 250 miles on it it was beginning to feel a little better on acceleration and the motor was beginning its first stages of loosening up, a few more miles and it should be ok for a through test session.
