New Blue is a limited production, track only project commissioned by Ducati North America and developed by NCR. Starting with the platform of a 2007 Ducati Sport 1000 S, this bike recreates the classic styling and uncompromising racing spirit first seen in Old Blue in 1977. New Blue was created as a homage to Cook Neilson’s 1977 Daytona Superbike victory on a Ducati 750SS know as “Old Blue”. Tuned by Phil Schilling and piloted by Cook Neilson, Old Blue represents the first racing victory for the Ducati brand in North America and served to increase the popularity of Superbike racing in North America immensely.
New Blue production will be limited to 50 numbered motorcycles with each one hand-made on demand and custom tailored for the owner by NCR. For more information about New Blue contact NCR at: [email protected], or visit

Beautiful, but why is it so expensive?
