Featured Listing: 2007 Ducati 999S Parts Unlimited

The Ducati 999 series has something of a mixed reputation, wrapping a widely panned design around a chassis and engine that the press universally said was the best package on the road when it debuted. The praise was followed by three World Superbike championships in its production run.

2007 Ducati 999S Parts Unlimited for sale on eBay

This 2007 Ducati 999S Parts Unlimited is a U.S.-only package that celebrated the AMA Superbike mounts of Ben Bostrom and Neil Hodgson. Just 150 of them were built, with Ohlins suspension and a couple extra horsepower to set them apart from standard bikes. The bikes all had Bostrom and Hodgson's signatures on the tail section.

This one has had a fender eliminator, some trick clutch parts and a ceramic-coated exhaust installed, and has covered just 3,700 miles.

From the eBay listing:

Let me start with some of the things that were said about the 999 when it came out:

MCN of the U.K. which called it "simply the best V-Twin on the planet", and Motorbikestoday.com, which described it as "the most desirable, most exciting roadbike on the planet" in 2004. MotorcycleUSA.com described it as "stupendous" and "the epitome of V-Twin power."

A couple things that check the boxes of a future collectable is Limited Production and Race winning history.

This Ducati 999S is in excellent condition (only 150 of these made). Equipped with Ohlins front and rear suspension, Ohlins steering damper, Termignoni exhaust, and swingarm spools. The tail section has been signed by Neil Hodgson and Ben Bostrom.

Upgrades include Ducati Performance clutch pressure plate, EVR open clutch cover, ceramic coated exhaust, and Competition Werks fender eliminator

Buyer is responsible for shipping. I will meet a shipper at a location of my choosing at a time that works for me. I have many transportation companies I have used in the past and been very happy with that I can suggest.

As the video shows, the bike is in impeccable shape and runs like the day it was new. Thirst for these hasn't reached a fever pitch yet, but there is always a market for low-mileage, low-production Ducatis of any flavor.

Wham-O ! – 1990 Ducati 750 Sport

The 1990's were a heady time for Ducati, with the 851, Paso, 888, Supermono, and 916 all realizing their potential.  Meanwhile, the sporty-on-a-budget 750 Sport that helped keep the company afloat in the late '80s is all but ignored.  This eastern Duc has been ridden extensively but probably not much lately.  It has the early bold graphics livery and looks substantially original and complete, just in need of a little TLC.

1990 Ducati 750 Sport for sale on eBay

A foot in each decade, the 750 Sport used an F1-style frame and a Paso-style Weber carb for the belt-timed desmodue.  Great power at 72 hp for a two-valve 750, though tractability of the single carburetor was wanting.  Single-adjustable Marzocchi dampers and 16-inch wheels kept the bottom line in sight.  Single puck Brembo brakes are front and rear.  The size is more Paso than 851, making the Sport more of an all-rounder, a little more comfortable on a long ride.

 

The seller might not have had time to form an emotional attachment to this 750, and it looks like the previous owner parked her a while back.  Still it's complete and mostly stock, ready for a week at the spa.  From the eBay auction:

Up for sale is a Ducati 750 Sport, aka the "Poor Man's F1". I have been told that they imported less than 400 of these to the US, they are not common.  I have only ever seen one other one for sale. 

This bike is mechanically sound, it runs/drives perfectly. 19,030 miles. 
Good condition for it's age, but with it's age there are some little scuffs and scratches around the bike.  Took photos of what I found. 

 

Never exactly the top of the dance card, the 750 Sport was a worthy partner for weekend tours or rallies.  As ever a compromise, this one is a rarity not needing deep pockets.  For a mid-size, an eager performer with enough room for an un-tucked adult.  Even more unusual than the later sun beam paint scheme, the bright blue and white graphics on red fairings recall an era when Ducati wasn't hanging back waiting for your attention.  Once this 750 Sport is detailed up, some time spent in the stainless hardware aisle, and with fresh expendables, it'll be an eyeball grabber too...

Featured Listing – 2009 Ducati 1098R Bayliss Limited Edition #106/500

Troy Bayliss won the Superbike World Championship for Ducati three times between 2001 and 2008, on three different generations of desmoquattro superbike.  Ducati saluted his career with a great special edition -R in 2009, with his race number and Aussie flag livery.  Fittingly for a homologation special, number 106 of 500 has been improved for track use, but turned under 1,000 miles.

2009 Ducati 1098R Bayliss Limited Edition #106/500

An major update for 2009 was the use of the testastretta "Evoluzione" engine, with a majority of titanium internals making 180 hp and 99 ft.-lbs. torque right off the showroom floor.  The archetypal trellis frame has been beefed up for the occasion, and components are the best that Öhlins, Brembo, and Marchesini had to offer.  Hidden in the carbon fairing are traction control with eight settings, and a data storage and analysis module.

Always intended for the track, the owner Chris has made a few choice mods but fewer miles.  Recent heavy maintenance was done on time not miles, either way ready for a new rider.  Kyle Racing suspension upgrades are advertised as more linear for the monoshock and adjustable for the triple-trees.  Most take-off parts and limited edition swag are included, and an aftermarket set of track bodywork could be negotiated.  Chris's description:

Basics: 983 mi, single owner purchased from Ducati Winchester. #106/500. Waiting on paper title from DMV. Major service was done last year (belts/fluids/etc) and has 25mi since. New Supercorsa front and rear installed at that time.

Mods:
-Dan Kyle triples, rear linkage, and revalved shock w/spring rated for 185# if i remember correctly
-Vortex rearsets
-Clutch cover is aftermarket but I don't remember who made it
-Race exhaust and ecu have always been on the bike
-1/4 turn throttle installed

Stock parts included:
-rearsets
-DDA module but no associated CD or manual
-standard exhaust and ecu
-clutch cover
-Bayliss LE plaque and bike cover
-rear shock w/linkage and triples

Bad:
-nick and small scratches on tank in seat area
-tank has expanded slightly, making contact with the factory steering stabilizer
-belly pan has 1/4" crack on brake side

Though all 1098's are better suited for the track than the road, #106 with Chris's set-up might be even more so.  Most 1098's have low mileage, and -R's even less, but despite a nick here and there, this example's condition is remarkable.  The 1098R is a high plateau in the superbike landscape, the Bayliss commemorative a peak, and this particular LE a great combination of more and less - power to weight, mods to originality, collectibility to miles.  Chris asks $24,500 and can be reached by email - here -.

Featured Listing: 1997 Ducati 900SS CR in rare yellow!

Update 9.6.2018: Now on eBay. Leave your comments below. Good luck to buyers and seller! -dc

The Ducati 900 SuperSport line can trace its lineage a long way back. If you overlook the change from bevel-driven valve actuation to rubber belt drive, you can trace the DNA well into the 1970s. If you are looking for bleeding edge technology and the latest fads, you are missing the point. This is a motorcycle that is more than a collection of parts, even though the parts are very, very good. The Ducati SuperSport is a raw, basic sport bike that talks to the rider and gives willingly. With tons of great noise, torque, stability and panache, the SuperSport offers up a unique experience that is very Ducati.

Featured Listing: 1997 Ducati 900SS CR!

The SuperSport of the 90s came in 3 models: The SS CR (cafe racer) you see here, the SS SP (sports production) with upgraded suspension & brakes, and the SS SL (SuperLight). Originally only the SuperLight was available in yellow, while the SSCR and SSSP shipped in red livery with either gold or white accents depending upon the year. All had the same engine and chassis. The yellow CR is definitely an anomaly in the SuperSport world, and in many ways is the best looking of the bunch. The lighter color shows off the curves of the "just enough but not too much" bodywork. Thumb the starter and the 2-valve, air cooled desmo twin barks to life, idling with a pleasing lump. There is not a lot of RPM to play with by Japanese specs, but with torque available from 2,500 on up to redline, all is extremely usable. The twin arrangement creates a narrow profile and a comfortable cockpit.

From the seller:
1997 Ducati 900SS CR in the rare yellow

34,915 miles. High compression pistons. Termignoni carbon fiber slip-ons in exceptional condition. Open airbox with K&N filter. Brembo full floating cast iron rotors (as found on the SP). STM clutch slave cylinder. Stock forks were rebuilt/resprung several years ago. There's a very small ding in the tank but overall the bike is in outstanding condition.

Best of all...

The bike has been freshly serviced by TJ at MotoUnion in WI--ZERO miles since the valve adjustment and belts (OEM) were replaced (except what I may put on between now and when it sells). Carbs were just professionally cleaned and tuned—new jets and adjustable needles.

More from the seller:
Also replaced, with zero miles since:

· New Shorai battery

· New 520 sprockets (aluminum rear)

· New DID ERV3 520 chain

· New Dunlop Q3 tires

· New spark plugs

· New grips

· New EBC HH brake pads

· Fresh Motul RBF600 brake and clutch fluid

· Filter and full synthetic oil change

The modifications have been carefully selected and things like the windscreen and fenders are still OEM. The maintenance has thoroughly been done, so you'll have nothing to do but ride for thousands of miles.

I may be able to help with delivery between Chicago and Deal’s Gap in early September.

The hot rod bible for the SS lineup is pretty standard. This owner has made some tasteful, effective mods without thrashing the basic concept or idea. Weight is reduced, performance increased, yet reliability is not affected. The Termis are de rigueur, and add to the already fantastic soundtrack. Ditto for the airbox mods. The brake upgrade is not often seen on a CR, and takes braking to a whole new level. And the proof here is in the pudding; 34k miles and going strong. These motors are amazingly reliable and resilient; keep up with basic maintenance, belt changes and valve adjustments and you have a bike worth keeping long after the current fad has passed. Sure, at lower speeds the steering can be a bit heavy, but the platform is so stable across the sporting speed regime that it is hard to find much to fault. Maybe it isn't the fastest bike out there, but as a rock solid performer you would be hard pressed to find a bike that delivers the goods so consistently.


1997 Ducati SS CR

Asking price: $3950

Contact Adam Miller: plus790@hotmail.com

The best part of these iconic Ducatis: they are downright affordable to own. This bike has more cost in hi-po parts than the asking price for the whole package. Maintenance is not the nightmare that some make it out to be (easily handled by a backyard mechanic, or by a local shop), and reliability is astounding for a bike that sounds so good. Performance is more than adequate for aggressive street riding, and longevity of the basic bits has been proved time and again by high mileage bikes. Heck, these things even get great gas mileage (stock: 50+ mpg, modified: in the 40 mpg range) - if that sort of thing appeals to you. And this is not a sell job; several RSBFS staffers swear by these things with their own cash as long-term owners. Adam - who is no stranger to sport bike collections, is looking to thin his herd a bit and this beautiful 900 SSCR needs a new home. Drool over the pictures and then ask yourself how you could afford NOT to add one to your stable. You'll be glad you did!

R Favorite – 2008 Ducati 1098R #70/300

In -R trim, the Ducati 1098 was actually a homologation special with the new 1198cc engine.  In a win-win for the dealerships' best customers, Ducati ceded some trackside modifications to get increased displacement, meaning that the showroom -R came with equipment that the racers would need, and street riders normally could just dream about.

2008 Ducati 1098R for sale on eBay

After the 999 styling debacle, the 1098 returned to classic Ducati superbike design, and a revised cooling system took some of the urgency out of escaping stop-and-go traffic.  180hp made for an instantaneous exit when conditions allowed, and though factory traction control kept the rear wheel under the bike, as the suffix implies the -R is really better suited to the track.  Suspension, brakes and wheels are very high spec, with Ohlins twin-tube monoshock, Brembo 330mm monoblock brakes, and forged Marchesini alloys.

Offered by a specialty auto dealer in St. Louis, this 1098R looks excellent for its 11,000-plus miles.  Normally a few high-end farkles would be expected, but they're really not needed on an -R.  From the eBay listing:

This example is in phenomenal condition. Never having been laid down, all fairings, handlebars, and and levers are original. This bike is still completely in stock form. It runs and rides perfectly. While we are not a motorcycle dealer, the previous owner is a long term local client who owns a buys only top-notch merchandise. This 1098R is said to never have been tracked, and it shows. The condition is as good as it gets.

This -R has been ridden though not on the track, and likely dealer-maintenance could easily be verified.  Presuming this will make a rider happy, some riding and shop visits are probably better for the bike than a long time in the foyer and yearly oil change.  The 1098R offers massive performance in a now-classic trellis frame and carbon fairing, and the race dash offers timing and analysis.  The ask looks right up there until you look at the MSRP, which was double that just ten years ago.  Worth a close look if you have ready access to some fast roads...

Featured Listing: 2008 Ducati 1098R for Sale

After the relative failure of the 999 series of superbikes, Ducati needed a win, badly, and they got one with the 1098. The design was much more conservative than the Terblanche-penned 999, but it shared stylistic elements with the 916 and had a recognizable “face.” But for serious riders, the changes under the skin were more important, and today’s Featured Listing 1098R is one of the rawest ways to experience Ducati’s two-cylinder fury.

It’s not that the Panigale that followed the 1098 and 1198 wasn’t even lighter, more aggressive, and more powerful. It obviously was. But the 1098 and especially the 1098R came at the tail end of the era of the truly analog sportbike. In fact, the 1098R is significant in that it represents an actual bridge between the pure, undiluted sportbikes and the proliferation of multi-level traction control, anti-wheelie systems, cornering ABS, and ride-by-wire.

Many of Ducati’s pre-Pani superbikes have power outputs that seem… tame. The famously beastly SPS? Just 124hp. Of course, those earlier bikes were still deceptively fast, and had huge torque figures and fat midranges, compared to inline fours. But by the time of the 1098R, you were still seeing a peak of nearly 190hp and 99ft-lbs of torque with the included race ECU and exhaust. That's a terrifying prospect in a bike that has only the most primitive form of electronic traction control.

And the R was a landmark bike in that it was the first roadbike to include a traction control system designed to allow the rider go faster, to help the rider tame the nearly race-bike levels of performance for both increased safety and better lap times. The DTC was deactivated on the bike as delivered, but installation of the included race ECU and Termignoni exhaust switched it on. Not that anyone would do that on the road, of course... The Testastretta Evoluzione v-twin fitted to the 1098R had the usual raft of titanium engine parts to save weight and help the bike spin up quicker, and the 1198.4cc was at the very limit for WSBK homologation purposes. A factory slipper clutch and the Öhlins TTX36 twin-tube shock helped keep things under control at the rear of the bike, and top-spec Öhlins forks and Brembo brakes did the same up front.

From the original eBay listing: 2008 Ducati 1098R for Sale

Race ECU and full Termignoni exhaust. No modifications. Always garaged. Not ridden in rain. Super clean. Maintenance up to date. Tires have plenty of tread left. Selling this and a couple others to make room for older bikes. I bought this 1098R from original owner/collector in 2012 when it had 1062 miles. Just relisted. Lower reserve. Lower Buy it Now price. Clear title in hand.

I believe all of the 1098Rs shipped with the Race ECU and Termi exhaust, but they weren't installed because, [cough, cough] they were "intended for offroad use only" and weren't anywhere near legal. Having heard one of these up close, I'd say it's pretty clear they didn't even bother trying to make the Termignoni exhaust meet noise standards... Anyway, mileage is low on this one, and the Buy It Now price of $17,700 is right in the ball park, if not a teeny bit on the low-side.
