The Ducati 999 superseded the Massimo Tamburini designed Ducati 916, Ducati 996 and Ducati 998 range of superbikes in 2003, and was produced through 2006. This motorcycle enjoyed great success in World Superbike, and was raced in the series through the 2007 season, despite no longer being produced, pending rules changes by the series' governing body, FIM, to allow competition of the new Ducati 1098. PP Tuning performance parts for Ducati 999 (2003–2006) rearsets, adjustable brake and clutch levers, clip-on handlebars, protectors etc. are produced from highly resistant materials. This ensures their longevity.
