The Ducati 916 was a true milestone in motorcycling history. All current Ducati Superbikes are direct descendants of this historical motorbike: the 916, the 996 and the recent 998.
The 916 is still with us and it looks much the same as it did back in '94. Most people generally agree that, almost ten years later, it looks up-to-date. The Ducati has enjoyed gradual updates year by year, and is still arguably at the top of its class.
Now that the history lesson's over, what's it like to ride? In a word, brilliant!
