  • A full fairing sport bike made by Ducati from 1994 to 1998
  • Uses a chrome-moly trellis frame which is shared with the Ducati 748 in 1995 and beyond
  • The 916 was considered one of the most influential machines of the last twenty years winning “every bike of the year award for 1994”
  • Frequently cited as one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever
  • The design is a derivative of the Honda NR750 with its underseat exhaust, narrow waist, squared off dual headlights, and a single sided swingarm holding a large-section rear tire
