Ducati has slathered the highest grade of cutting-edge carbon fiber all over the bike. The wheels, the frame, the sub-frame, the single-sided swingarm- they’re all made of carbon fiber. Ducati is so dedicated to weight-saving that the brand used titanium screws to save additional weight. All these components are tested with aerospace-grade techniques for technical flawlessness. As a result, while the bike costs a fortune, it also weighs just about 156kg only.
