1998 Ducati 900SS FE for sale in San Francisco

Bargain 1998 Ducati 900SS FE (Final Edition)!

My first post on RSBFS was a 900SS FE and I have always liked the classic lines of the old air-cooled Supersports.  For most people and for most street riding, these bikes are more than enough to get that stupid grin on your face without getting into too much trouble.  And $4500 will get you this very nice 1998 Ducati 900SS FE Final Edition (#30 of 300) for sale in San Francisco:

Final Edition #30
10670 Miles
All Stock except for AFAM front & 39tooth Rear Sproket (1k miles)
1k miles on brakes and tires
Magnetic Tank Bag
Battery Tender
2nd Owner
Minor Cosmetic scratches and rear light lense cracked

So there are some cosmetic scratches and the rear lense is cracked, but what do you expect for a 12 year old bike?  And for the bargain asking price, I can easily over look the minor details.  FEs have been hovering around the $5500 - $6000 range, so this one's a steal.

Also check out Ed's 900SS/FE website - chock full of good info.  If you end up getting this or any other 900SS FE, don't forget to get your bike in the 900SS FE registry as well!

Finally, just to show that Supersports can be Supersexy as well, see this tricked out 900SS FE special done up by performance parts dealer Motowheels complete with BST carbon fiber wheels, carbon fiber tank, Rizoma goodies... hmm....

2001 Ducati 748S With 960 Original Miles!

This is a 2001 Ducati 748S with only 960 original miles!  Located in Escondido, California is a completely stock 748S looking to be in perfect condition as it should with this low mileage.  The bike comes with the original bill of sale, a clean title, owners manual, and service manual.  As standard, this bike has the five spoke Marchesini wheels, Showa suspension, the motor is a derivative of the earlier SPS motor, and the "S" line features a different exhaust system.  The asking price is a very fair $6,000.  It would be possible to ride this bike for five thousand miles and still loose hardly in depreciation.  As long as regular services have been done--If you wish to ride it--I say this bike is a win!  See it on Craigslist here.

2002 Ducati Monster S4 Fogarty Edition with only 2400 Miles!

I didn't even realize they made a special edition to honor Foggy, but here's one of 300 made for sale in Fresno, California on Craigslist. It looks really well preserved and ready to rock for $9500:

2002 Ducati Monster S4 Fogarty Foggy Edition For Sale

quote from seller's listing:

2002 Ducati Monster Foggy Edition with 2,408 miles. Number 87 of only 300 made! Termignoni exhaust, carbon fiber, not a scratch on the bike.

I had to do my research on this one on the Monster Forum and other websites, and from what I've gathered:
- these were all special order.
- only 300 in the world!
- the Fogarty package was only applied to the S4 model (which has the superbike motor and uprated suspension)
- It sits a little taller than the standard S4 (20mm)
- and of course the graphics and plaque are unique to this special edition

I tried to find a Foggy Monster video but to no avail. The closest I could find was the S4 with the high mount Termi cans:

With an original sticker of nearly $15k, this looks pretty good at $10k with only 2400 miles. It's not even broken in yet!

Bimota DB4 in North Alabama

Well, I guess it's Friday - because there is a 2000 Bimota DB4 for sale in North Alabama!

<4k miles
Complete MotoCorse kit (exhaust, carbs, tank, etc.)
Factory ½ fairing
Custom tri-color paint
4-pad calipers
Marchesini forged Mg wheels
Brembo radial master cylinders (forged, both sides)
Enlarged rear storage area

The DB4 shares the same engine as the air-cooled Ducati 900 SS but with Bimota's own alloy trellis frame, handled by Paoli forks up front with an Ohlins shock in the rear.  The DB4 in standard trim is already a very nice handling and fun bike - with all the super desirable (full Motocorse kit [!] and forged Marchesinis ... oi!) go-fast goodies added, this DB4 will for sure be one wicked ride!

Just for reference, here are some other tasty DB4s:

Full Carbon Dream carbon body work, lots of titanium bits and Motocorse goodies, Ohlins forks, Marchesini wheels... the best DB4 I've seen so far!

An early version (I think) of Japanese Bimota specialist Motocorse's own DB4C

Motocorse's version of their "production" (production meaning only 50 were ever made) Db4C with 944cc big bore kit, FCR carbs, titanium full exhaust system, forged wheels, suede leather seat...

Personally, I would have preferred the Carbon Dream version or Motocorse's DB4c, but considering this one has the full Motocorse kit AND the Marchesinis, I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers either!  Standard DB4s have been floating around the $9000 range, so this one at $10,000 is definitely a good deal (the seller was asking $15,000 only a little over a year ago).

If you have been wanting to join the Bimota brigade, now is the time!

1995 Ducati Supermono (drool!) 572cc w/ 0 miles!

1995 Ducati Supermono for sale and is listed as having 0 miles!

This is almost unbelievable, because these are as elusive as those Snipe things they told us about at camp. This super rare Supermono is located in Italy and is Mike, located in Scotland, turned me on to this rare bird first thing this morning. Talk about excited, I had a grin from ear to ear all day just thinking about what a rare opportunity this is. Currently there is a bid of 25,100 pounds, which equates to $40,882.92 usd, and the reserve is still on. I can't begin to tell you the correct valuation on this bike. Hopefully, one of you will be able to shed some light on what these are worth. My guess is that it is going to take a whole lot more than the current $40,000.00 to buy this one.

Ducati only built 65 of these over the course of a three year span from 1993 to 1995 and then two more were built between 1996 and 1997. This one shows #14 on the triple clamp badge and is said to be #59 of the 67 that were ever produced. The 1995 model's were made to 572cc vs the previous years 550cc motor's. Some of the articles I read, while doing research for this model, said that the 572's are more desireable becaue they were more refined and tested vs. the earlier models. At a mere 277 wet #'s and pumping out 61hp, I bet these things would rail around the track. The top speed was said to be 141mph, but I have to believe they could easily do better with a jockey sized rider and a few modifications.

<

1995 Brand new and possibly the only new one left in the world. It's number 59 and the 14th one produced in 1995 so that means it's one of just 25 of the 572CC models produced and comes with it's certificate of origin. Only 67 Supermono's were ever built which makes it one of the most sought after and collectable Ducati's ever, this really is a once in a life time chance to own a new one.....Open to offers.

I did find an older add listing one of these for sale and the price was 115,000, but I couldn't find anything about the article such as where it was located and a date for the article. So if you know what it is worth please let us know.

Here is a great video that lets you hear what a pure racing 570 single sounds like.

In this next video watch how quickly the rider flicks the Supermono from side to side. It looks effortless in every corner. By the way, go ahead and turn up your volume before you watch it so you can hear a different kind Ducati music.

For some people these are the rarest Ducati's ever produced and I can't blame those who think so. I know Ducati makes a LE every year, but this is one LE I think they should make every year and let the general public have a chance.

Cheers!
