It is due to the extensive use of carbon fibre and a monocoque frame and titanium, that has helped the company to reduce the weight of the bike by up to 40% and the bike’s kerb weight is now about 167 kg.

However, talking about the availability, Ducati had confirmed that it will manufacture only 500 units of this high-end motorcycle globally and all the models had been sold out back then.
