2007 Ducati SportClassic 1000 SE for sale on eBay

Though the introductory year was 2006, sales managers came up with North America-only SE to emphasize the lineage from early desmo-valved Ducs like the – 900 SD Darmah – which came in a similar livery.  The now-classic dual spark engine had several significant improvements over previous air coolers, with excellent power and torque numbers for a two-valve engine.  The Terblanche design had a cafe racer’s vibe with long tank, low-ish bars, spoked alloy wheels, and the SE was a monoposto.  Suspension and brakes weren’t retro but quality components from Marzocchi, Sachs, and Brembo.

Presented by a San Diego dealer, this SportClassic looks to have rolled right out of the way-back machine, virtually flawless fit and finishes.  Cam belts, fluids and tires have been re-newed in preparation, with original tires retained in case the next stop is a museum.  Notes from the eBay auction –

SportClassics were a unique moment for Ducati, and foresaw a flurry of retro specials from almost every manufacturer.  With just a hundred built, the 2007 SE is one of the rarest and the black and gold quite nostalgic.  Bidding is active with a few days to go, but hasn’t met the reserve.  Not sure this SportClassic will get a chance to wear out its new tires, but will make the next owner very happy either way.
