Welcome to What We're Watching. This feature highlights some of the auctions we are following - especially those that are about to close. Handy if you're curious about where values are going, or just want to snipe in at the last minute to score a deal!
This is what is HOT right now:
Just over 24 hours left before this coveted 998R finds a new home. Comments from readers on RSBFS and our Facebook site indicate this is the real deal. Bidding stalled at $20k, but the value should be much, much higher. Check it out here as this one is going to set the 2017 benchmark for the model. Don't miss out on the last of the 916 lineage R bikes!
It's the battle of the R bikes! This is the baby R, in 749 format. The styling is Terblance instead of Tamburini, but all the expected Ducati performance is there. In fact, this may be the more tolerable of the two from a riding perspective. Less than a day to go on this one, with bidding below $10k and below the reserve. Will it cross the threshold? Will someone score a bargain? Check it out and see!
This sweet, early Ninja was highlighted to us by a reader. One look and you know this is a well-cared for example, claimed to be in "collector condition." Less pricey than many of the exotics normally listed - but no less cool - this 600 Ninja just might fit the bill as an affordable classic. Currently sitting below $3k and below reserve, this one will be gone by Wednesday morning.
