Overview[edit]

Ducati 916 Senna
















The great Brazilian Formula One driver Ayrton Senna was a friend of the Castiglioni brothers, and an owner of an 851. Only a few months before his death in 1994 Senna agreed to the production of a limited edition 916 Senna, with the profits going to the Senna Foundation. The Senna 1 appeared for 1995, and setting it apart from the regular 916 was the black and gray color scheme with red wheels. Apart from steel Pankl conrods, the engine specification was that of the 916 Strada, while the chassis was similar to the 916 SP. This included the solo seat, aluminum rear subframe, Öhlins shock absorber, and fully floating cast-iron front brake discs. Also shared with the SP were adjustable brake and clutch levers, stainless-steel brake lines, and carbon-fiber front fender, clutch cover, chain guard, and exhaust pipe insulating panel.
