Sometimes a builder gets things looking so good, the will to ride the daylights out of their creation suffers.  Not sure that’s what happened here, but this 749R has been beautifully prepped for the track and looks ready for a late start to the season.

2004 Ducati 749R ( Racebike ) for sale on eBay

Ducati’s 749 accompanied the 999 to the showroom, and the 749R was built in limited quantities for supersport racers to campaign.  The 749R had a much more race-oriented engine than the base and -S models, much more oversquare with a 94mm bore and 54mm stroke.  The architecture was backed up with exotic materials, with titanium con-rods and valves, and magnesium head covers conspiring for 121 hp at 10,250 rpm.  43mm Öhlins forks ride in an adjustable headstock, and the both-sided swingarm has a race-oriented non-progressive linkage to the monoshock.  Even the typically excellent Brembo brakes are lightened for the track, with thinner 4.5 mm rotors.

This 749R had the cobwebs blown off in the owner’s Florida driveway, and looks like a fresh track day build.  From the levers and pegs to the Alicé-derived livery, this build looks right.  Harder to see is the flow smoothing, balancing, and updates internal to the engine.  Too much to list from the eBay auction:

Peach Pit Custom Paint Job
Armour Bodies Bodywork
Vortex Upper stay
 
Engine Build….Ducati Race Kit Plus…. 20k in receits
Ported Heads, Cams, Intake Manifolds, Injectors, Etc
130HP on Pump with Dyno Sheet
 
Marchesini Forged Rims
Ohlins Front and Rear Suspension and Steering Damper
Corse Dynamics Ride Height Adjuster
Microtec ECU
Dynojet Quickshifter
EVR Slipper Clutch
BCM Clutch Cover
Termignoni Full 60mm System
Euro Racing Quick turn Throttle
Attack Offset Triple Trees
Woodcraft Clip-ons
BCM Rearsets
Vortex 520 Gearing
Shorai Battery
Accossoto Brake Master with CRG Levers
Speedmoto frame sliders
Lightened Rear Brake Rotor
The stacked headlight design was short-lived at Ducati, but improvements in the Testastretta kept coming.  An AMA or World Supersport championship wasn’t in the cards, but privateers and club racers kept the marque on the front page.  The auction appears to be without reserve, despite the big bucks sunk in this bike.  As always, the purchase cost of a race machine is just the price of admission, but for a superfan this might be great track day bike.

  • What a conflict piece! Beautifully finished paint work. But on a track fairing. One puts on track bodywork because you don’t want to risk your OEM finish. Beautify job in any case. I am just envious my socio-economic status keeps me from burning laps on this bike. Love this ride. Beautiful tank.
