The ST3 is an Italian sport touring motorcycle that was made by Ducati between 2004 and 2007.

The Ducati ST3 used the liquid cooled Desmotre (three valve desmodromic valve) 90° V-twin engine. The design was aimed at meeting anti-pollution limits. It is a trellis framed sports tourer with a protective fairing, and colour matched panniers.

The Desmotre bottom end was derived from the 1000 DS Desmodue, with the water pump in the alternator cover.
