All original: 1994 Ducati 916

When the 1994 Ducati 916 was unleashed, it caused the motorcycle world to stand up so fast it promptly fell right back down on its ass. When the industry press and its leather-clad readership had finally quit seeing stars, what they were staring at was a genre-definer the likes of which hadn't come along since the '80s.

The 916 platform went through myriad iterations and increases in displacement over the years, and there are plenty of 916 and 916 lookalikes available on every corner of the internet. Still, an unmolested first-year bike is a sweet find. With the exception of some dirt and grime, this 1994 Ducati 916 looks fully sorted and ready to go.

From the eBay listing:

Great condition survivor, not many left like this, never raced!
Italian model, registered in US
All stock, recently serviced by licensed Ducati shop, new tires, brake pads and lines. New timing chain done as a pre-maintanance.
Can help with crating and shipping at new owners expense.
Actual miles: 10,850

The ad goes easy on the particulars, but the asking price shows the seller knows what kind of lust these bikes inspire.

Pie in the Sky: $90k 2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR

To the average sportbike addict, the 2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR stands alone among race replica bikes as the one that nailed all the details and defined the genre in a taught, carbon fiber-clad package. Honda saddled its RC213-VS with electronic nannies, a restrictive exhaust and a collectors-only asking price. Ducati engaged in no such silliness. They detuned, added lights, and slapped on a pricetag.

What's more, the Italians asked under $100k for their super-exclusive, experts-only racebike, and readily provided the few things you needed to truly go nuts. Despite their rarity, the bikes have depreciated since then, and nice examples regularly go for the same price as a BMW 3 Series. Most, that is, except this 2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR.

While it is extremely low mileage, comes with all the factory extras, including the more business-minded exhaust system, $90,000 is a big ask, especially considering a brand-new Desmo was $72,500.

Used as Intended: 2013 MV Agusta F4-RR

The seller of this 2013 MV Agusta F4-RR seems to know little about its history or provenance, but it appears to have been mostly for track use up to this point, and sports a monoposto tail section devoid of taillights or provisions for license plates. The ad says the bike has a clear title, but the dealer isn't standing behind it as a street bike.

That said, MV Agusta F4-RRs are scarce as dog feathers, so if the numbers come back clean it's still a worthy grab for someone. The RR version of MV's mighty F4 wears Brembo M50 monobloc brakes, cast aluminum wheels, Ohlins electronically adjustable suspension and switchable engine maps. Oh, and it pushes out around 200 horsepower that carts around not much more than 420 pounds.

The asking price under $12,000 seems a little low, but since the seller seems to know little about the machine and what its past life was like, there could be good reason for that.

WSBK Ready: Race-prepped 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale

Before this 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale turned a wheel in anger, it was stripped of its street parts, taken down to its bones and rebuilt as a track weapon the likes of which few people will ever have the fortune to sample. Every inch of the bike has seen some sort of work or other, consuming $80,000 along the way.

2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale for sale on eBay

The seller claims the result is a superbike-spec ride that pushes out 220 horsepower through a Superstock-spec Termignoni exhaust and rolls on custom Ohlins suspension bits. A dream team roster of Ducati techs from across the country turned wrenches to produce the bike listed here.

The engine work alone reportedly ran $17,000, and included Carillo rods, head work a thin head gasket and a balanced crank. The fork is a giant 53 mm Marzocchi unit running Ohlins internals, while the shock is a computer-controlled Ohlins TTX MKII. This is where we would normally let the seller speak for themselves, but the description of this bike is part of one of the pictures, so see the gallery below for the full laundry list of parts and modifications.

With the V4 Panigale on its way, $20,000 might seem like a lot for a 220-horsepower Ducati, but keep in mind: The full-bore 2018 Ducati Panigale V4 Speziale is expected to run close to $40,000.

Featured Listing: 2007 MV Agusta F4 1000 Senna

To those of you who hang around this site enough, the MV Agusta F4 Senna should be a pretty familiar sight. We've covered a few of them this year, and breathlessly deliver the spec sheet and production numbers every time we get the chance. This example is number 87 of the total run of 300, and has covered about 7,500 miles over its life.

Though it is now approaching its 11th year, the Senna is based on the F4 1000R of the same era, which means you get tons of modern conveniences, including a trick engine braking assist system, smoothed-out powerband and mod cons like radial Brembos and adjustable suspension. Oh, and 174 horses from the 1,000cc inline four.

The Senna edition, named for MV designer Massimo Tamburini's good friend and F1 world champion Ayrton Senna, gets special paint and bodywork, Marchesini wheels, and an Alcantara seat to boot.

From the seller:

["For Sale - baby coming - literally!

2007 MV Augusta F4 1000 Senna.

Remarkably rare and clean.

Certified #087/300

7300 miles.

Lots of carbon fiber.

Priced to sell.

Threw on some Super Corsa race takeoffs so I could go knock the dust off. The stock tires were old and unridable. Personally I prefer the Super Corsa, it feels way better! But I can change the tires to what you prefer.

It's pretty obvious the bike has never been on a track.

You read that right, if you want to be old-fashioned and do things with Long Green, that's perfectly fine, but you will get a discount if you plan to pay in Bitcoin. In today's money, one Bitcoin is roughly $15,000, though analysts predict the cryptocurrency could fluctuate between $6,500 and $22,000 per in 2018.

Featured Listing: 2000 Ducati 996S

The souped-up version of Ducati's iconic 916, the 2000 Ducati 996S allowed Duc to keep the Massimo Tamburini styling that still did not look dated and make a raft of mechanical mods to keep up with the Joneses. The bores got embiggened, parts from the 916 SPS became standard, and horsepower climbed to the mid-120s, and the bike stayed in the spotlight attracted by its predecessor.

2000 Ducati 996S for sale on eBay

The 2000 models got five-spoke Marchesini wheels, which on the S were featherweight cast magnesium. The suspension was handled on both ends by Ohlins, which ratcheted up the exotica a notch or two.

This example is low mileage and comes out of the second owner's collection, where it has been ridden mostly to shows. It has been given an aftermarket graphics package, which is removable, as well as some carbon fiber dress up bits. It also sports Akrapovic slip-on cans and Ducati Corse rearsets.

From the eBay listing:

Ducati 996S 2000.

Bike is located in Queen Creek, AZ. Clear title. Super clean bike with only 4123 miles. This is an S model which is limited from Ducati. #259 Upgraded components from Manufacturer such as Ohlins suspension equipment. Bike is well taken care of and comes out of a collection. I am the second owner. Services are up to date. Decals on fairings can be removed as they are not under a clear coat. Besides that everything else is pretty much OEM. Akropovic slip-on's, Ducati Corse Rearsets, correct Marchesini magnesium upgraded lighter wheels recently checked and painted. I have the owners manual and original tool pouch. You can take it home and ride it. I do ride it to shows so mileage can and will change. I do run Rear slicks on all my street bikes. I can put a new rear DOT on if requested. ie: this was not a race bike because it has a slick on. Besides that, new front tire, 520 chain, sprockets, oil, belts. it does literally look new. Please don't ask about other bikes in the pictures and if they are for sale. They will not be responded to. Thank your for your time. $7500 obo

Any and all other questions welcome.

For Sale Locally. I can end the listing at any time.

Please note 2 items are on the bike that will not be removed until sold. Rear Billet Brembo caliper, and WSB full floating rear rotor. I will leave the Brembo caliper on at an additional cost to listed price if negotiated. Rotor is not negotiable. I don't need to sell the bike and so parts will stay on until Sale. OEM items will be reinstalled.

I can help with transportation arrangements if needed. Buyer is responsible for pick-up.

This bike is in excellent shape, has a very few reversible mods and is extremely low mileage. At $7,500, it's almost a no-brainer.
