Race Bodywork: Frederick Cederna Design

Fairing, Tank & Seat

The FCD RS design race kit includes an integrated fairing, seat and tank. Forced air inlets and air ducts on the front faring join a mated air box to provide compressed air to the fuel injection & engine. To aid cooling, air is directed through the front forks and side air inlets to the rear cylinder. Lower sections of the fairing frame the placement of the large V-shaped RS oil cooler. Also of note, the carbon Kevlar tank is formed for the 1198 fuel pump for improved fuel delivery.

Bodywork Design: Authentic Ducati

The RS bodywork resonates with authentic Ducati lines. Fluid forms and curves emphasize lightness, accentuate the structure and encompass the power plant. The bodywork exposes a clear view of the trellis frame, always a distinguishing Ducati feature.
