2001 Ducati 996R For Sale

We are pleased to present this rare and iconic motorbike. Number 428 of the 500 made for World Superbike homologation purposes. This is a UK specification bike and has been with its current owner since 2010.

The service book shows services at 600m on 05. 07. 2001. 3, 000m on 19. 05. 2002. 5, 502m on 05. 07. 2003. 8, 151m on 01. 09. 2004, and 12, 112m on 17. 09. 2005 and 11. 12. 2009 with belts but no recorded mileage.

As you can see the bike has not covered many miles (1, 214) since 2005, as such a full recommission has just been undertaken in May by John Cellier of Bologna Vee Twin Workshop, but perhaps better known as Ducati John. John’s 3-page itemised service schedule details all of the work he undertook, including a belt change, new battery, fork seals, rear shock service to highlight just a few of the items checked and / or replaced.

The 996R is the road going version of the World Superbike Championship winning bike of 2001. The ‘R’ reflects the racing heritage, only 350 were designated as road bike, the rest to the track.

This is basically a factory race bike, with added lights. Described at the time as the finest sports bike ever built. Ohlins suspension front and rear, with titanium nitride coating on the fork legs, carbon bodywork, Marchesini wheels, all mated to a newly designed 998cc short stroke Testastretta Desmoquattro engine producing 135BHP, weighing in around 185Kg dry with the addition of carbon Termignoni’s only reducing the weight further. The standard exhausts are available, together with a set of adjustable foot pegs and the original seat pad.

This bike is everything you would hope for in such a limited prestigious model, clean, immaculately presented and freshly serviced for its new owner to enjoy.

A video of the bike running is available, please contact us if you wish to view.

This 996 Biposto with single seat and Harris goodies might look a little scruffy but it's mechanically excellent and has the potential to be something special with some attention to the bodywork.
