If a rider you know is ready to reach right for the top shelf, RSBFS reader Mike has been taking special care of his 999R.  With some nicer updates and fresh expendables, this 999R looks ready to take on all comers.

2005 Ducati 999R for sale asking $21,000

Designer Pierre Terblanche didn’t look back at the previous model as much as the imperturbable face of the stopwatch, and provided 2003 riders a more aerodynamic package, with a taller cockpit to work in.  The testastretta EVO engine provided the means to achieve ton-plus speeds, with larger, lighter titanium valves and knife-edge crank contributing to the 150 hp on tap.  The classic trellis chassis is appointed with Öhlins, Brembo and Marchesini’s best components, and a revised swingarm for 2005. Multiple handling and riding position adjustments make the 999R as accessible as any superbike.

Mike’s 999R looks pampered, with striking cleanliness, flawless finishes and carbon bits that still have their glossy new look.  Update-wise, the reach to the Brembo radial levers has gotten a bit more comfortable, and a slipper clutch will keep the rear tire happy.  Termignoni supplied a pound or so of titanium in the exhaust and maintenance is more than current, as Mike explains in his – facebook marketplace –

The 999 exceeded expectations on the world superbike stage, winning three titles in its four year run.  And the Terblanche design has come to be appreciated for its complexity but was always a joy to ride.  Mike looks to have been an excellent caretaker of his 999R, keeping it ready to display or spend a great afternoon.
