When it comes to limited edition Ducatis, the Senna edition ranks right up there as something special. Devoid of the marketing exercises of the Nieman Marcus or Matrix editions (distinguished only by paint), the Senna was a carbon fiber clad version with Ohlins suspension. Proceeds of the sale of the bike went to Ayrton Senna’s charitable foundation supporting the poor children of his native Brazil.

Sporting number 300 (of 300) this looks to be the last 916 Senna that rolled off the Bologna assembly line. It is also signed by Troy Bayliss, and shows approximately 3,500 miles – which isn’t much. Pricing, on the other hand, is definitely in the higher range. This auction has an opening bid of $14,000 USD with no takers thus far. The BIN is set at a very high $23,000. These Senna editions are striking bikes – they literally glitter and shine in the sunlight – and they are legitimately rare. Check out all of the details here. Let us know what you think about this particular Ducati LE model!

    Wrong. As a lovely bike and a tribute to a legend, it’s very cool, but it IS essentially just a paint and chip bike. The original plan was for it to be a significantly better performer, but those plans fell through wen he passed away. They do not have Ohlins forks, and many of the regular 916 monopostos came with the Ohlins shock anyway, so this was not that unique. It has a carbon fiber fender and airbox…which the owner ruined with an autograph. That’s not so bad since the airboxes are widely available, but he had the tail signed as well!!! The added stickers are asinine, but hopefully removable.

    • It actually is pretty equivalent to the 748L, except at least this honors an all-time great instead of a store.

  • I’m rather certain whoever would want to buy this would annoy me completely.

  • I like the grey paint but other than that the aesthetics of this machine are a mess. Red wheels might be OK but the white stripe ruins them, decals are running at all kinds of crazy angles, the baubles stuck on the triples are weird and anachronistic (Senna’s last ride was a Williams not a McLaren) and why have Bayliss sign it?? There’s a nice bike under there somewhere but it’ll take some work to find it.
