This bike is VERY important in the WSBK history because it was the first one to pass the 300km/h, over 12 km/h faster than factory Ducati bikes.
We have bought it directly from Team Gattolone in year 1997 and always kept in our collection. I have decided to sell most of my bikes so this one must go. Good original conditions as in photo, genuine and straight.
It is THE REAL THING, it is NOT cheap so don’t waste my time asking stupid things, be prepared to pay the price. NO DREAMERS.A good investment. Car [I think he means bike] is currently located in Italy, Padova but i can deliver no problem to UK.
Any question please ring to my mobile +39 347 2656235 or email to email@example.com
Ducati’s 916 is definitely one of the icons (if not THE icon) of modern day sports bike, and a works racer (one that beat factory bikes at that!) with history and race wins is definitely worth a whole lot more. Bidding price is up to 40,500 British pounds (approx. $64,000) with 4 days to go – my guess is that it will sell for over $80,000 by the end of the auction. What do you guys think?
Here’s the video of the 1996 WSBK Monza race where Chili won by just a hair on this very bike (just to get the blood pumping):
