I’m not crazy about the paintwork on this one, but maybe there is some room for negotiation.

Next up is this 1993 Ducati 888 SPO for sale on Craigslist in San Francisco for $9500 with 13.7k miles. You know I’m a sucker for these and I happily post them as often as possible. Thanks for the heads up Tim!

To contrast, the , but now with a buy-it-now of $8600. I’ve been following the comments on the Yahoo 851/888 group, and everyone agrees that it’s a steal at that price. Previous reference to this bike.

1996 Aprilia RS 250

 

This little gem is worth a look if you are in the market for a RS 250. 

123

 

Only showing 8342km or 5,183 miles on the clock this one appears to be really nice. Owner is asking $6,250 obo and is listed on the LA Craigslist.

Owner says:

 

This is NOT a converted Challenge Cup bike. This bike was originally made to be ridden on the streets and highways. Front and rear brand new tires with less then 10 easy miles on them. Bike also comes with as shown a very rare light weight $1250.00 Gianelli (made in Italy) hand made racing exhaust/expansion chambers with dry weave carbon fiber silencers, Sudco (made in Japan) adjustable steering damper and a brand new Zero Gravity smoke tinted windscreen.

 

I don’t think I’ve ever noticed a silver RS for sale, but I by no means see them all.  This one looks super sweet and ready to rock-n-roll.  At $6,250 it seems to be priced right in the mix.  Check here for past RSBFS RS250 post

1986 Suzuki GSXR750 LE for sale

This is probably the first, of what we know as sportbikes today, homologation model produced.  This one is for sale on

1
42

If my memory serves me correctly, about the only differences between the LE and the regular US version is the dry clutch, LE graphics and the solo seat tail section.  The European versions received Flat Side Carbs for this year. 
 

THIS ONE ONLY HAS 4400 MILES AND IS IN GREAT SHAPE FOR ITS YEAR. PAINT IS ALL ORIGINAL WITH A FEW MINOR BLEMISHES BUT NO CRACKS WHAT SO EVER. 

COMES WITH FACTORY MUFFLER AND YOSH SYSTEM.

The seller states that this bike has Dymag Magnesium wheels and if that is the case all of my research says they aren’t OEM.  If anyone has information regarding this let me know and I’ll update the post. 

These early GSXR’s had a whopping 106hp and used 18″ rims on both the front and rear.  One fun fact is the FZR 400’s used the exact same tire size (even larger than the same year FZR 1000’s, but I’ll save that tid bit for another post).  This one looks to be in great shape and is located in Swansea, Massachusetts.  I know these have a huge cult following so I am anxious to see what it sells for.

3 Ducati D16RR Desomsedici’s for sale

 Following on the heels of Alex’s great post of 3 AMA Superbikes for sale, I felt compelled to post the badest production homologation bike on the planet.  I know, I know that can be debated, but can’t be denied that these babies are bad to the bone!

First D16RR is located in Kalamazoo, MI and is the cheapest of the 3 on .

Kalamazoo

Owner says:

2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR Team Edition #190/1500 This bike is in Excellent condition! Adult ridden, properly broken-in. I comes with all the goodies from Ducati that came with the bike. Cover, the unused GP Replica Sticker Kit, both exhaust systems and ecu’s, rear stand. Bike also has the optional Ducati rear hugger. Please email me with any questions.

This one has 3,300 miles on the clock and like I said before is the cheapest of the three at $45,000 with no reserve.

===============================================================================

Next D16RR is located in Seattle and is on as well.

Seattle

Owner says:

It is #678 out of 1500.  

It still has the included service plan and warranty and all accessories that came with it.  It is the Team Version.  The decals are included but have not been applied.  It has had the Ducati Service Bulletins performed by the local Ducati Dealer in Seattle (improved valve return springs and wiring harness protection).

It includes the optional carbon fiber rear hugger.  The motorcycle has the factory included racing exhaust kit installed.  The stock kit comes with it as well

 
This one is priced in the middle of the three at $57,000 with no reserve.  The owner is also including a little bonus if you buy his bike.  You’ll have to to get all of the details. 

================================================================================

Finally, the 3rd D16RR for sale is located in Portland and is for sale on just like the previous 2.

Portland

Owner says:

2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR Team Edition #869/1500

This bike in Great shape and only has 758 miles. Unfortunately money is tight and I need to sell this amazing machine.

 
This bike has a ton of upgrades (I thought Ducati already had the good stuff on it?) which are extensive and tasty.   

 I have had quite a bit of upgrades installed and they are as follows:

  • Titanium Race Exhaust
  • BST Carbon Fiber Wheels
  • Brake Tech Carbon Fiber Brake Rotors
  • Ferodo Carbon Brake Pads
  • Yoyodyne Titanium Hardware for Rotors
  • Dynojet PCV(5) Powercomander
  • Dynojet Quickshifter and Shift Rod.
  • Ducati Performance Rear Hugger
  • Vented Clutch Cover
  • Zero Gravity Rosso GP Replica Windscreen (shown in pics on bike)
  • Ducati Performance Double Bubble Windscreen
  • Casey Stoner Grips
  • Anti Vibration Handle Bar Inserts
  • Rizoma Bar ends
  • Ducati Performance Brake and Clutch Resivoir Covers
  • AFAM Rear Sporkets
  • Carbon Fibre rotors, Carbon Pads, Carbon Fibre wheels…..  Would love to see this bike in person and throw a leg over it.  I can only imagine how this thing sounds with the Titanium Exhaust cranked up to about 10,000g.  Just the thought of it makes my hair raise. 

    ================================================================================

    So if you’ve ever had an itch to pick one of these bad boys up now is your chance.  Silly season is in full swing and the rare bikes are plentiful.  The D16RR’s had a $72,000 price tag when new (someone can correct me if I’m wrong) and these are priced well under that.  The last one has a lot of expensive bits on it and I can’t even begin to guess what they cost in addition to the bike.  Hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed posting them.
