Official DUCATI Press Release - 999R "Fila" Limited Edition

Ducati celebrates its 200th win in the World Superbike Championship with a limited edition production run of 200 special versions of the Ducati 999R in the official livery of Team Ducati Fila 2003.

Ducati began its incredible World Superbike winning streak in 1988: currently 18 riders have taken the highest spot on the podium thanks to a Ducati race-bike.

The 999R FILA comes in exactly the same colour scheme as the Ducati 999F03 raced in the World Superbike Championship. The Ducat-Fila clothing collection also reflects the great sporting tradition of these two legendary Italian brands.

Ducati and Fila: a partnership exemplifying the best of technological innovation and Italian style.

Sporting the same graphics as the Team Ducati-Fila 999 F03 bikes, the new Ducati 999R FILA becomes even more stylish and aggressive.
