Boz Hoss – 2002 Ducati 998s Bostrom Edition #97

The Ducati 998 was an evolution of the already successful 996, which was itself an evolution of the original 916. Far from yet another warmed over model with minor cosmetic changes, the 998 was a substantially new beast in the same wolf’s clothing. Making significant changes to the engine bay in order to remain competitive in the frenzied world of WSBK superbike racing, Ducati altered the bore-stroke ratio of the 996 even more in the direction of over-square (bigger bore, shorter stroke). With revised crank, rods, pistons, cylinders and a new cylinder head design with larger valves, the 998 was reported to churn out an additional 12 horsepower over the outgoing model. Those 123 ponies (stock) were put to good use by racers such as Troy Bayliss and Ben Bostrom, and each were represented by a replica street bike in 2002. Today’s example is a Bostrom edition, perhaps the wildest of the paintwork ever to adorn a showroom stock Ducati. Numbered 97 out of only 155 produced units, this Bostrom model is said to have only delivery mileage, and has never been ridden.

The seller has included a walkaround video of the bike in question, which can be found here:


It seems fitting that we post a track star hero on what is traditionally Track Day Tuesday on RSBFS, even if the bike in question is fully street legal. Sometimes it is puzzling why Ducati chose to honor a great rider like B-Boz with a 998S instead of the more potent 998R, although keeping some stratification across the model lineup must certainly have been a factor. It is a shame that this bike could not be pulled out of the storage area for proper photographs, although what is there shows a beautifully preserved example of a pretty rare and wild bike. Check out the pictures, check out the video, and then check out all of the auction details here. This is a popular model for collectors, and an extremely low mileage example such as this will certainly raise some eyebrows. Offered in a Buy It Now format for a cool $38k, this example is located in California and promises you plenty of attention wherever you go. Good Luck!!

  • great bike but damn its fugly…reminds me of the vance and hines yamaha…

  • The bike appears to have been stored in the elements in some sort of crate and is rather dirty with corrosion showing in various places. Unfortunate for such a unique machine. For the money being asked, at a minimum it should have been removed, fully detailed and properly photographed. Dream on!
