Ducati engine building is Mark Sutton's specialty. With 24 years of Ducati experience - four of which were with factory Ducati AMA Superbike teams - it makes him the most experienced Ducati technician in the southeast and one of the most qualified in the nation. Customers send their bikes or engines from all over the United States, Canada, and Europe for Ducshop to blueprint and prep for the road or track.
Our Ducati's have a strong reputation, finishing 3rd in the Daytona 8 hour endurance race, many Daytona 200's on 848's and 3 Moto ST Championships with the DS1000 engine.
A blueprinted engine will produce more power and last longer than a stock engine and anyone thinking of racing or doing track days on their Ducati should seriously consider the investment. When you get a street bike from Ducati it is assembled with very tight clearances so it is more likely to spin a rod bearing or wear other parts prematurely. Blueprinting will set the clearances closer to Corse specs as well as ideal cam timing, etc.
From blueprinting to creating a full Superbike engine, DucShop can customize your Desmo to suit your needs.
Shipping your engine or full bike to us is cheaper than you think. A bike can be shipped door-to-door from coast-to-coast for about $600, and an engine can be shipped for about $250. Call us to get a shipper recommendation. You'll be surprised how easy and affordable it is.
