Retro Rocket: Ducati SportClassic

The Paul Smart get all of the attention when talking about mid 2000s retro Ducati, but the often overlooked standard model offers most of the riding and ownership experience for a much lower buy in.  The main mechanical difference is the omission of the Ohlins suspension.  The motorcycle is powered by the same air cooled dual spark engine and shares a common frame that features a unique asymmetrical single shock.  Being a non limited edition more freedom is offered to owners for modifications and upgrades.  The aftermarket has never failed to support Ducati products.

This example has a few items that appear to be meant to show off the Ducati engineering.  Open belt drives, vented clutch cover and upgraded exhaust are sure to enhance the feeling of the engine while riding.  The OEM parts are said to be included if 100% factory original is my your style.

From The Seller’s eBay Listing:

Motorcycle is in excellent condition
Complete of original factory parts and aftermarket parts: Termignoni Exhaust – Clutch Plate and Clutch cover – Rear light and plate holder to eliminate the fender – Speedy Moto belt covers – Ducati motorcycle cover

This yellow example is being offered by the same seller offering up a track used Paul Smart.  Interested parties would likely do well to contact the seller as there is a chance they have some amazing stories to tell, and a passion to share for these retro air cooled motorcycles.  Current bid of $9,000 is unlikely to remain for the duration of the auction as these bikes garner a lot of attention.  There are few alternatives that offer a simple retro riding experience combined with the Italian flair and amazing sound.  With under 2000 miles it will be up to the next owner to decide if they will keep riding it in the current form, or revert everything back to 100% original and place in a collection.
