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.

    Bimota Tesi 3D for sale…on Ebay Poland!

    I know, I know, this bike isn't in the US...but since the Bimota Tesi 3D is such a beautiful rare bird, I got permission from Dan to post this so we can all drool over it.  With that, I give you a 2009 Bimota Tesi 3D for sale on ebay Poland:

    There's not much information offered in the listing, except that the seller "have a special statement to allow registration in Poland."  While I cannot comment on the USD40,000+ asking price and the seller's zero feedback rating, but coat me in chocolate and throw me in a barrel of cats if that's not a beautiful bike!

    A bit of background on the Tesi series: before working for the exclusive Italian marque, ex-Bimota chief engineer Pier Luigi Marconi wrote his Mechanical Engineering degree thesis on the hub-center steering concept.  While at Bimota, Marconi applied his thesis design to create the Tesi 1D ('Tesi' meaning 'Thesis' in Italian, and 'D' indicating that it has a Ducati engine - a Bimota modified 851 motor - inside) - Bimota's first alternative front end design.

    After the Tesi 1D was introduced in 1990, there came the Tesi 1D SR (slightly larger engine displacement than the 1D), the Tesi 1D EF (Edition Final), Tesi 2D (also known as the Vyrus 984), and now the latest incarnation, the Tesi 3D.  The Tesi was never meant to be a mass poduced vehicle, and the Tesi 1D was probably the most (relatively) common model at 127 units totally produced.  

    Although there are no official figures how many 3Ds have been made, my (very) rough guess is 50-80 units worldwide.  This particular example is from a later production batch as identified by the red-coloured steel steering push rods and plastic brake fluid reservoirs.  Units from the very first production run was a limited series (named as the 'Tesi 3D Concept' by some importers), with carbon fiber steering push rods, alloy machined brake fluid reservoirs mounted on top of the triple clamp (just like the old DB1), wet clutch, and a small metal plaque stating the serial number. These bikes also came with Bimota Tesi 3D watches (made by Italian watch maker Officina Del Tempo) complete with matching numbers!

    Definitely something to drool and fantasize about over the weekend!

    2002 Ducati MHE900 on ebay

    Editor note: Today we welcome a new author to RSBFS. This is Steve's first post and from the looks of it we'll be looking forward to his future selections with this kind of taste! Please join me in welcoming him on board! -dc

    This is a 2002 Ducati MHE900 and is limited production even for Ducati - this happens to be bike #1891 of 2001. These came standard with lots of trick parts but this one has a quite a few upgrades including a complete carbon fiber body kit and upgraded fuel tank - five gallons instead of three. This MHE900 has 5,433 miles on the odometer but looks showroom new. The Buy It Now price was recently lowered to $12,995. See this Ducati on ebay: 

    2002 Ducati MHE900 MH900evoluzione for sale

    More information from the ebay listing:

    This is a very special bike! There were only 2000 made and this is number 1891.  When offered in 2001, they sold out online in under 1 hour!  The prices have climbed steadily and this represents a blue chip investment you can enjoy! This bike is loaded with carbon fiber body work complete by Carbon Dream. A Staintune exhaust was added for premium sound and maximum performance.  An upgraded 5 gallon tank was a big step up from the factory tank that held just under 3 gallons.  All parts were purchased through Ducati Corsa including the Ducati high performance mirrors. This bike has been well cared for, serviced at the Ducati dealer (Fast By Ferracci) its whole life.  We have all the service records for this bike since birth along with any upgrade that was added.  We also have all the original body work including fenders, factory tank and more.  The Ducati has just recently gone through inspection and has had regular synthetic oil changes when called for.  There is no other bike out there like this, offering you modern styling and extraordinary performance this is a great one to add to the collection.  This bike holds true to the Ducati name and look.

    The standard MHE900 is rare enough but the upgrades done to this bike make it one of a kind. I do however, question the need for a larger fuel tank as I expect the ergonomics to wear the rider down faster than the engine consumes gasoline - or I just might be getting old. Either way, this is definitely a motorcycle I wouldn’t mind adding to my stable…

    1996 Ducati 900 SP #973 of 1000

     900ss sp #973 of 1000 on

    2

    13

    I know we've had several SP's recently, but here is another one for everyone to drool over. 

    • 1996 Ducati 900SS SP # 973 0f 1000 made. Bike is showroom mint with only 5451 miles.   Always stored in a heated garage.
    • All steel braided lines for brakes and clutch.
    • Brand new Pirelli Corsa tires.
    • Micron exhaust.
    • K&N modified air box.
    • New mikuni carbs with stage one jet kit.
    • Black hollow spoke Brembo wheels.
    • Oil cooling jets for pistons.
    • Full floating front brakes.
    • I have the factory exhaust the tools and stands all included in auction.

     
    This one has a very low 5451 on the clock and has some very nice mods.  I am particularly fond of the black Brembo wheels on this one.  The seller has saved the stock parts, tool kit and rear stand which is always nice when considering a purchase of a limited production bike.  At $9,250 it seems to be a fair price, but having just completed a check of previous 900SS posts on RSBFS they might be hanging on this one for a while.  It seems the market won't support the asking prices of most SP owners.  I've seen several stall around 5 - 6k this year.

    Fully customized 2001 Ducati 748 for sale

    While a Ducati 748 does not really qualify as “rare”, this fully customized version seems to be the exception to the rule.  The bike has, as the seller claims, over $30,000 invested and is tastefully done (which is not always the case).  It's also code-named "GIA" for that added cool factor:


    “GIA“... A Custom Built 2001 Ducati 748 Superbike with over $30,000, 3 Years of Build Time, not to mention all my BLOOD, SWEAT and TEARS invested!

    Charcoal Grey Custom Paint by “Jason Haskins Hot Rod Shop“ with Clear Coated Carbon-Fiber highlights. “S“ Model 5-Spoke Powder Coated Red Wheels, “Full“ Termignoni Carbon-Fiber Exhaust System, Rebuilt Engine and Replaced Rockers, Surflex Racing Slipper Clutch, GP Brake Master Cylinder, GP Billet Clutch Master Cylinder, Evo Billet Slave Cylinder….

    The list of mods is too long to list here,  so check out the ad on Ducati.ms.  The seller is asking $6000 for this sweet ride, which I think is a pretty good deal.  Besides, the 916/748 series was the last of Tamburini's design before leaving Ducati, so bonus points there as well!

    1998 Ducati 916 SPS #278 of 400

     

    **Update**  This bike had a $15,000 bid and the reserve wasn't met, but the owner lowered the reserve to $15,001.  Is it just me or does that seem a little funny?  Hopefully, this SPS has a new home.

     

    Good looking, well taken care of 916 SPS for sale on // <![CDATA[
    document.write('eBay');
    // ]]>.  I'm a huge fan of the 90 homologation production bikes and this one sure is nice.  The SPS's don't come available that often so if this tickles your fancy - Get on it!

    916 SPS on ebay

    1234

    This one has had some work done by the "Ducati Master" Eraldo Ferracci.  The seller has the following to say...
     

    Has never been raced. Has never been in the rain. Has never been down. Bike is kept in the Living Room on stands. If you are a collector this is the bike for you, it is Museum quality. Has 1026 Stroker kit, engine set up by Fast by Ferracci. Bike was Dyno tuned by Eraldo.

     
    For me, this is the body style to have.  Ducati set it up with the good stuff from the factory and then Ferracci made this one better.  The owner appears to have pampered it and it shows.  At $15,500 starting bid the reserve hasn't been met, but it has a buy-it-now at $16,500.00.  I did a quick search and couldn't come up with the original MSRP, so if anyone has that info pass it on and I'll post it up.
