Tamburini’s masterpiece, the Ducati 916 became in its last evolution the 998.
I don’t know why but the Ducati stickers on the tank are not present…
The final version was deliberately called 998 FE = Final Edition. This, featured some nice and worthwhile components upgrades like the front Öhlins fork in addition to the standard 998 Öhlins rear shock. FE models are still available on the market and many of them in nice and clean conditions. Besides the R versions and the Bayliss and Bostrom replicas, the 998 FE are among the priciest 916 descendants. The model spotted in Germany is not an FE nor an S model, but it comes with a low mileage of less than 6000 km
…and a few parts upgrade. These include most significantly: a slipper clutch:
…a radial front brake lever (see first picture on top) and improved hydraulics for softer clutch action:
In addition, a Titanium Termignoni set is available for an extra 500 EUR:
The seller claims that this late registered (2001), 998 was never ridden in rain, it never fell nor it met any any stage the grippy tarmac of of a race track.
While there are plenty of 998s around, is this low mileage enough to justify the starting asking price of 11000 EUR = 14500 $ ?
