2004 Ducati Superbike 999RS

This is an extremely rare machine.  I know we have been listing a few Ducati’s of late but this is an RS.  WHat is that you may ask, well this is the World Superbike version of the 999R that was available to privateer teams from the Corse department.  While a 999R is rare this is even rarer and was designed only for racing.  These bikes were built by the Corse racing department rather than the main factory and as such the bike contains a large number of bits and pieces built from serious metals like Magnesium.

As the seller lays out there are many special pieces:

This superbike is in great cosmetic and running condition. There’s only minor signs of wear and tear from racing such as light scratches and nicks on the body; however, it has never been crashed or layed down. Adult raced only, always garaged kept, and meticulously and professionally maintained. It’s loaded with top of the line parts as listed below making the bike unique, fast and lightweight. I have clear title in hand and for a quick sale. Although I have provided many pictures of the bike below, you are welcome to come inspect it ONLYbefore the end of auction, you can also send a third party to do the inspection for you.

You can pick it up or have it shipped at your expense. However, all shipping arrangements and expenses are the reponsibility of the buyer.

Regarding payment, I will only accept bank wire transfer or cashier’s check. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. Thank you and happy bidding.

eBay Listing

This gallery gives you an idea of how many nice fitting are on this bike.  You can see this is an RS frame by the removable sections over the engine, a real thing of beauty:

Now putting a price on something like this is really tough. The bike does not have the sophisticated engine management that the world superbikes do but even so this is something really special.  At $15000 it has not yet met the reserve so keep an eye.  Go and have a look at the listing here and see if you can’t find a reason to want this!

  • I want to comment on pricing. When I look at my track bike, I bought a 600RR when it was one year old with 2,000 street miles, and in excellent condition. I put on painted track body work (eliminating all lights), added full race exhaust and PCIII, changed out the rear shock for a race unit, added track tires, swapped to kevlar brake lines and carbon brake pads, and implemented a few other weight-saving tricks. Cost of bike was $6500, including tax, and the upgrades were about $7,000. If I found an ’04 999 in excellent condition, I would probably pay roughly $8,000 for a stock bike, and still would have to pay another $7,000 to modify it in a reasonable fashion for the track. I know I would never get $13k for my 600RR, but I can follow how the seller arrived at $15k for his 999RS. I see the auction is now a few ticks above the reserve…

  • these bikes are truly special… they have modifications you can’t even make to a road going 999… most of the parts on these bikes(or the bike alone for that matter) you couldn’t even get unless you had proper racing credentials…

  • Dang! I know we’re all thinking “I wonder if I can put a street wiring harness and lights on that thing.”

    @Phil: True, this is not like that F06 which is a factory rig but the price of those components is mind-boggling. That FGR800 fork? Kyle Racing had an FGR900 on sale for $10k. On SALE! If you look at the site for a shop like ProItalia that sells trick stuff you’ll see that a Corsa swingarm is $5k, and that’s sort of a consumer version. Ti con rods? $2k a pair. Brembo billet radial master brake and clutch cylinders can be $2500-$3000 apiece. There’s a reason why the grids are so thin these days!

  • […] listed on eBay, it failed to sell with a highest bid of $24,000. Thanks to our friends at Rare Sportbikes for Sale for the tipoff. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: […]

  • Uma — The bike isn’t actually listed on this site. You have to click on the eBay link at the bottom of the article. But, since this article was written in June, the eBay listing has expired. Hope that helps.

  • Hi, is the bike still up for sale? and what engine is it?
    Modified standard engine or the RS

    Regards Flemming

  • Hi
    Looked at the 999R? its a lovely bike but not a RS of any kind there’s still a lot of parts it require’s to make it into a real one.

  • You can pick up a chicken, burger or even a steak and grill the food while parked
    at a roadside rest area, campground, or other attraction.
    You can also ensure your vegetables are done at precisely the same time as your
    steaks. The Weber Performance Grill sells for
    around $300-$350, but consumer after consumer state it is more than worth
    the price in durability, quality and ease of operation.

  • As you progress with your training the adjustable dumbbell sets will give you more flexibility because you can keep adding weight as
    you need it. Dumbbells are quite simply the best
    exercise equipment, no other piece of equipment is so easy to use yet can be used for nearly every
    muscle group. Inhale as you lift the weights and exhale when you release each weight.
