A litter of Ducati Desmosedici D16RRs for sale – take your pick!

Sometimes there are just so many cool and rare bikes for sale out there that it’s hard to choose which ones to post. I came across a few Bayliss reps and 1098Rs, which in their own rights are rare birds, but for me the ultimate still has to be the Desmosedici. I have located 8 (would you believe it?) for sale around the world (I figure if you are in the market for one, where they are in the world doesn’t really matter, right?) and here they are:

Desmosedici #418 for sale in New York

:

Ducati Desmosedici #190 for sale in Michigan

 (this one has a long list of tasty upgrades added):

Ducati Desmosedici #869 for sale in Portland
#1033 for sale in Peterborough, UK (fitted with race pipe and ECU):

Ducati Desmosedici #1033 for sale in UK

:

Ducati Desmosedici #872 for sale in Hertfordshire, UK

:

Ducati Desmosedici for sale in Cambridgeshire, UK

:

Ducati Desmosedici #767 for sale in Italy

And the last one, :

Ducati Desmosedici for sale in Genoa Italy

I never thought I’d see so many D16RRs up for sale at one time.  Any lucky prospective buyer will get the opportunity to hand pick the best from this bunch.  Now where did I put that lottery ticket?!

2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR Team Edition!

Today’s version of a 80’s/90’s homologation race bikes, but with a slightly steeper entry fee. 

I can only imagine ripping through the canyons on this thing feeling like Casey Stoner……..  At $52k you could probably do a little fist pump at the next stop sign and pretend you just won the Moto GP Championship and not get made fun of by your buddies.

2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR Team Edition #0074/1500! Fitted with Ducati Performance Ti bolt kit frame & engine and Ducati track Fairing, although none of the 49 miles have been on the track! Truly a rare and collectible machine! Comes with all street fairings, lights, mirrors, turn signals, license plate bracket, front and rear stands, bike cover and battery charger!

 
It looks as if everything offered from the factory is still in tact and together, which only helps for resale down the road, should you decide to pick this up. 

Last year, at the Indianapolis Moto GP race, I snuck into the Ducati area (without that “we’re special” Ducati wristband (sorry Dan)) where I was able to see one of these up close and it took my breath away.  The vibrant red color, special details, high end components and not to mention the fact that I will never be able own one made it that much more exciting for me. 

I think I read before that these have around 200hp at the crank.  If anyone needs me to use my “seat of the pants” dyno to verify that number hit me up.

Wednesday Rapid Post: Wes Cooley Project, Bimota SB6R, Ducati 851, and Aprilia RS125

Squeezing in a quick post between meetings today with some interesting finds. Enjoy! -dc

_________________________________________________

1980 Suzuki GS1000S Wes Cooley on Craigslist for $1850 (24k miles, California):

Suzuki GS1000S Wes Cooley For SaleSuzuki GS1000S Wes Cooley For Sale

quote from Craigslist:

1980 Suzuki GS1000S Wes Cooley – RUSTED ROUGH NOT RUNNING – MOTOR TURNS – 24K-BRAKES FROZE – TANK RUSTED THRU- ALL ORIGINAL COMPLETE FOR RESTORATION

This bike seems to be priced pretty high considering how much work it needs done and compared to previous GS1000S bikes listed on this blog. But if the buyer can work a deal, could be an interesting project for this winter.

__________________________________________________________________

When I got my eBay alerts this morning, I spotted the little thumbnail for this gray SB6R. I didn’t realize the came in gray… Check out this (Seattle, $9500 buy-it-now, 5300 miles):

Bimota SB6R For SaleBimota SB6R For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

[…] From what I am told, the 1st owner was a serious bike collector from Florida. I was able to contact the salesperson from 2004 and he tells me the bike was always meticulously maintained by that 1st owner. We are also led to believe that the 1st owner carried out basic performance mods such as upgraded camshafts, mild cylinder head porting, carburetor rejetting, fuel system sorting, racing exhaust, different rims, upgraded calipers, etc. I do not have specific info on the internal engine mods but both Jay and the salesperson from ’04 recall the bike being represented as such. I can tell you the bike runs strong, crisp and way better than the stock SB6R I had in 1998.

So why the heck is the bike this color? Funny you should ask! Jay did not care for the solid red paint scheme as delivered from the factory. He removed all the bodywork sometime in early 2006 and handed it to a well known local Seattle bike painter to create what Jay thought would be the ultimate paintjob for his expensive piece of Asian/Italian finery. Three years later Jay finally got fed up and picked up his bodywork which had been sanded and prepped for painting but that was all. He wanted to ride so he bought many cans of grey Krylon and went to town. […]

Again, compared to other SB6 Bimotas listed on this site, this seems high regardless of how much expense has gone into this bike. If we were talking about a garden variety GSX-R or Ninja, I’d give the Krylon painted bodywork a pass, but not on a Bimota!

Yep, another Ducati 851. Isn’t it great owning your own website so you can be this self indulgent? Self: Yes! Check out this :

Ducati 851 For SaleDucati 851 For SaleDucati 851 For SaleDucati 851 For Sale

quote from the eBay listing:

I just picked the bike from Hansen’s BMW Ducati in Medford, Or where they completed over $1500 of service on the bike. The bike needs nothing but more gas. It is currently titled in California if that is a concern to your titling issues. Besides being incredibly beautiful, it has some very rare and historic parts bolted to it.

Make sure to read the full description on eBay. This bike reportedly has $40k in upgrades and work, and apparently a history to back it up. There is an interesting thread on the Ducati 851/888 mailing list debating what the value and sale price value look like. Most agree that it’s worth mid-teens but won’t likely get over 9-10k at auction.

Update 10.6.09 – This auction ended at about $4900 reserve not met.

Finally, Ari spotted this street legal RS125 on the Bay Area Two Stroke forums (1400 miles, $8500):

2009 Aprilia RS125 For Sale Street Legal California2009 Aprilia RS125 For Sale Street Legal California2009 Aprilia RS125 For Sale Street Legal California

quote from the forum listing:

I have a 2009 RS125 California plated bike for sale.
Mods are as follows:
1. 154cc Big bore kit
2. 34mm carb (properly jeted).
3. Intake manifold.
4. V-force reeds.
5. Arrow pipe.
6. Euro wiring harness, lights, switches, mirrors, etc.
7. Seat cowl
8. Carbon Fiber Chain Gaurde
As i said it’s registered and has around 1400 miles on it. Very fast, runs excellent !

Seller is definitely asking a premium for this one as it’s nearly impossible to get something like this registered in California. But I sat on one at last year’s Seattle Motorcycle Show, and it’s a beautiful machine. So light and the craftsmanship is awesome! Thanks for the submission Ari!

Vintage Ducati Superbikes For Sale: 750 F1 Laguna Seca and Heavily Modified 851

I’m posting late night because I’m on a short work week and probably won’t get the chance to post again for a bit. Luckily Doug and Alex have my back!

In the meantime, check out these two early Ducati Superbikes for sale right now!

1987 Ducati F1 750 Laguna Seca For Sale1987 Ducati F1 750 Laguna Seca For Sale1987 Ducati F1 750 Laguna Seca For Sale

quote from seller’s ad:

Un-molested Ducati F1 Laguna Seca race bike. This bike has not been modified to make it street legal, but I do have it registered and licensed. I have ridden the bike one time for about 2 blocks. I start the bike up once a month and run it through a heat cycle. The bike is part of my race collection and is inside in a Heated show room. For the past 20 years I have been restoring race bikes and I am getting up in years and would like to thin out my collection.

I don’t know alot about these older Superbikes, but here is an excerpt from Brad the Bike Boy website (make sure to check out this link, the detail is amazing!):

There were three F1 specials – the Montjuich (to celebrate victory at the track of the same name), the Laguna Seca (to celebrate Lucchinelli’s victory there) and the Santamonica (to celebrate Lucchinelli’s victory there in the ’86 F1 World Championship race). According to the Motociclismo book, they had 73 Hp at 9,250 RPM at the axle, while the works bikes had almost 90.

Here’s a YouTube video of an 88 F1 to check out what they sound like:

And if you need to get your F1 fix on even more, check out this April entry from DucatiNewsToday with a wallpaper for your viewing enjoyment!

If you have feedback on the value of these bikes, I’d love to get some comments below!

One of a kind, completely modified 1992 Ducati 851 on L.A. Craigslist:

Heavily Modified Ducati 851 For Sale in Los AngelesHeavily Modified Ducati 851 For Sale in Los AngelesHeavily Modified Ducati 851 For Sale in Los AngelesHeavily Modified Ducati 851 For Sale in Los Angeles

quote from seller’s listing:

YOU’VE HEARD IT BEFORE , THIS IS TRULY ONE OF A KIND BIKE. BEST BIKE IN SHOW AT LAGUNA SECA , COVER OF MOTORCYCLIST, DUCATI CALENDAR BIKE. ALL CARBON FIBER INCLUDING RIMS . TERMIGNIONI EXHAUST , OHLINS FRONT & REAR END. FAST BY FERRACI ,
140 HP JUST OVER 300LBS. WAY TOO MUCH TO LIST . OVER $ 60,000.00 DOCUMENTED WORK .
SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY $ 22,500.00

It could be argued that you’d have to be crazy to spend $60k on an 851, but does that make it a bargain at $20k? I have to believe that this personal love affair will have a hard time fetching that money even at 3:1. But it sure sounds like the business. I know we have a quite a few 851/888 aficionado subscribers, what are you thoughts?

1999 Bimota DB4 $6750 w/ no reserve on ebay right now!

Superb styling, Italian flare, with a Ducati V-twin… what a combination.

DB4DB42DB43DB44DB45

 
This very nice Bimota DB4 with only 3798 miles is listed on right now for $6750.00 with no reserve, so it will sell.  It retailed for $18,550.00 when new in 1999.  I’m not a huge Bimota fan, but I’ve always appreciated their styling and upgraded bits such as the Carbon Fiber fenders, Carbon Fiber fairing and Ohlins suspension.  At $6750.00 it seems like a great bike to have.  This one has been recently serviced according to the owners listing so it should be ready to enjoy.

 

It has carbon fiber front and rear fenders, heel guards and a carbon fiber belly pan (which was a factory option). It has a high quality performance carbon fiber exhaust that is throaty sounding without being obnoxiously loud. Also, of course, it is a Bimota, so everything is hand crafted and is has many CNC’d carved from billet items. The attention to detail is amazing. The DB4’s used the Ducati 900SS engine with carburetors (Mikunis) instead of fuel injection.

 
I know we have some regular viewers who are fond of Bimota’s so hopefully this one won’t disappoint.

1992 Suzuki RGV250 VJ22

Located in Anchorage, Alaska is a refreshed 1992 Suzuki RGV250.  These bikes are very rare in Alaska so, if you’re up there, have a look at this one.  The seller doesn’t state if it is street legal, only that it includes street equipment.  The bike has a fresh rebuild with zero miles–seller includes a video of a test run.  The seller states that the bike comes with a spares package worth over one thousand dollars and an extra set of correct body work.  The bike is priced at $2,200.  See this RGV on Craiglist here.

Yamaha OW01 and OW02 For Sale: Too Good to Be True?

Yamaha FZR750R OW01 For SaleYamaha R7 OW02 For Sale

Doug tipped me off this morning about an interesting listing on the FZRArchives forum that features not only a FZR750R OW01 For Sale for $10k, but also an R7 OW02 for $18k! Here’s an excerpt from the listing:

If anyone here is interested I have among others two very special bikes for sale a mint Y7 (OW02) $18,000 and an equally clean FZR750R (OW01) $10,000. I know what they are worth and I also know they are priced well below what they should. Htis is nto a scam and you can come see the bikes in FL. Also have references for the last 18 years I have been trading and playing with bikes. I have other cool bikes for sale not all are for sale when I have sold what I need the rest will stay. They include TZR250’s NSR250’s, RVF’s etc.

These are tough times for lots of people, and I know there are amazing deals to be had. But there’s this saying that seems to be ringing in my head when I look at this ad: If it seems too good to be true… I hope it’s real and someone scores some uber-rare unobtainium at a great price!

Thanks for the heads up Doug!

1992 Ducati Superbike 851 For Sale in Virginia

I do love me some 851 goodness, and this one looks really good! With under 10k miles on this 17 year old superbike, it looks to be in phenomenal condition! Take a look here on eBay where the starting bid is $5000:

1992 Ducati 851 Superbike For Sale in Virginia1992 Ducati 851 Superbike For Sale in Virginia1992 Ducati 851 Superbike For Sale in Virginia1992 Ducati 851 Superbike For Sale in Virginia

quote from the seller’s listing:

Very rare 1992 ducati 851. This bike has alot of upgrades including lots of carbon fiber, Marchisini wheels, floating brake rotors and much more. This bike is mint and part of a collection, it was always kept indoors and always maintened properly. Look at the pics and you will see that a bike like this does not come for sale very often. This is a no reserve sale and a 7 day auction so someone will get this beautiful bike at a great price. If you know Ducati you know how great this bikes are and know the upgrades made by the factory for this 2nd generation of 851.

This bike excites me for a few reasons. For starters it has very tasteful modifications and the condition looks really good. It’s also part of a collection as the pictures tell the real story. Check out all the other Duc’s in the background. And I do believe that’s a late model Testarossa in the same garage.

I think it’s getting close to time to sell my 750SS and upgrade. These 851 and 888’s that have been coming up are really making me consider it!
