The 749R is driven by a mighty twin-cylinder Testastretta Engine: created especially for racing. The 121 hp at 10,500 rpm has been achieved through full race tuning, and shortening the piston stroke while increasing the bore to 94 mm, up from the 90 mm of the 749 and 749s, thus enabling the Engine: to run at higher rpm. The slipper clutch is also racing derived and prevents the rear wheel from locking during track style downshifting and heavy Engine: deceleration.
This Testastretta twin-cylinder Engine: has been created using the best materials: titanium valves, valve retaining collets and connecting rods, magnesium head covers and carbon fibre belt covers that feature a ventilation system to enhance belt cooling. The feather-Weight: crankshaft and high resistance aluminium alloy pistons complete the array of top notch components.
One of the unique features of this model is the Rear Suspension: linkage, with flat rising rate as used on competition Ducatis, that is suited to extreme track use and a single-seat set up. The lower rising rate produces linear performance throughout the stroke with less rigidity at high ranges, typical of high-speed cornering experienced on the track. The suspension works in partnership with a fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock absorber, with a shorter stroke than in the standard version (down from 71 to 56 mm) and with a heavier spring, designed especially for this motorcycle and its unique Rear Suspension: .
This model is exclusively available as a single-seater and is finished off with a numbered silver plate on the top yoke.
This uncompromising sports machine is only available in the single-seat version and is the perfect bike for all those who want to own a real middleWeight: racer. The Testastretta Engine: is more highly developed than ever before to maximise performance and minimise Weight: . Chassis components have obviously been selected for maximum competitiveness on the track, and special materials like magnesium, carbon fibre, and titanium abound to make the 749R unbeatably light and mean.
The R’s Engine: has been specially developed for efficiency on the track. It develops 121 hp at 10,500 rpm and 8.6 kgm of torque at 8,250 rpm.
