Gianandrea Fabbro is an Italian Motorcycle designer and a senior designer for Ducati motorcycles in Bologna Italy. He gained notoriety when he was given the responsibility to design the next generation of Ducati's Superbike line, the Ducati 1098 after Pierre Terblanche's Ducati 999 failed to gain the popularity and success of the iconic Ducati 916 designed by Massimo Tamburini. In 2006 Ducati decided to go as much back to the 1994 roots, and the design of the Ducati 916, while still keeping the 1098 modern for many years. Fabbro was given the task of designing the 1098 while he was still Terblanche's junior.
In an interview about the development of the 1098 Fabbro downplayed his role in the success of the 1098 design when he said “I have my dreams and take care of the creative. Other people work on different parts of the bike. My creative department are closely connected to the technical department. Part of the success of a bike is its technical specs. It is always like this.”
