2001 Ducati 748RS With Very Little Use On eBay

This is a very good looking 748RS with 400 total miles on eBay!

Bike:  2001 Ducati 748RS

Location:  Salt Lake City, Utah

Mileage:  400mi

The seller states that this 748RS has only been used ten times with four of those times being races.  This bike has always been owned by a dealership and is still on MSO.  This bike is stock except for the silver paint and decals.  The bike has recently been inspected and is said to need nothing.

This bike is a factory Ducati Corse item for use by privateers and as such requires a large amount of routine maintenance, parts replacement, and inspection.  A lot of this is inspection but there are major issues such as inspection and replacement of the cam items at very low mileage (compared to a street bike) intervals.  Don’t get me wrong, these are fantastic bike’s but, if you think maintenance schedules and parts costs are outrageous for the R series bike’s, this one’s probably not for you.  However, if you’re looking for your own piece of Ducati Corse history and either want to use it as art, or have the pocket’s to run it, this bike IS for you!  Supposedly only around 20 of these were brought into the U.S. making them very rare but, are a factory race item so it’s to be expected.  If you’d like to bid on this nice 748RS, see it on eBay .

Ducati 748 Monoposto – Never Ridden!

Sure it’s “just” a garden variety 748, and most Ducatisti look down on the model as being inferior to the 916/996/998 series. But lets face it, for the rest of us it’s still a really great motorcycle. And it’s brand new ten years later!

Take a trip back in time and check out this :

2000 Ducati 748 For Sale with Zero Miles

quote from the listing:

This is the real deal, zero miles never driven or started, displayed in dinning room on painted to match track stands (provided with sale of bike). Purchased new in 2004 to be a “show” bike, project never started due to financial and personal changes. Paid over 12K and invested another $1500 in goodies that will be included with sale of bike. Will deliver within a 200 mile radius for cost of gas.

The auction has no bids at the moment and an opening of $7500. If you walked into your local Ducati dealer and spotted this amongst all the 2010 bikes, would you buy it? According to the Ducati USA website, the cheapest in their lineup is a Monster 695 for $9k. Makes me wonder what the reserve on this bike is because if it was in the same neighborhood, I know what I’d choose!

2001 Ducati 748RS Original Factory Race Bike

The 748RS bikes were sold for privateer race use and this one is still in unused condition!  Located in Riviera, California is a 2001 Ducati 748RS.  The seller states that this bike has no track use since he acquired it and it looks to have had very little prior to that.  This bike still shows original bodywork–excluding upper fairing because of a tip over–and looks to be in very good condition.  The bike included the original MagMar dash, Ducati Corse rearsets, factory manual, parts catalog and extra sprockets.  The motor has been blueprinted by Jeff Nash.  The RS is a stripped down version of the 748 with lightweight bodywork, race wiring harness, exposed cam belts and Supersport spec engine internals.  If you’re looking for an ocassional track day bike or living room piece, this would make a very rare–and interesting–addition to any collection.  The asking price is down to $12,500 and includes an extra set of body work.  See the bike on the Speedzilla forums here.

2001 Ducati 748S With 960 Original Miles!

This is a 2001 Ducati 748S with only 960 original miles!  Located in Escondido, California is a completely stock 748S looking to be in perfect condition as it should with this low mileage.  The bike comes with the original bill of sale, a clean title, owners manual, and service manual.  As standard, this bike has the five spoke Marchesini wheels, Showa suspension, the motor is a derivative of the earlier SPS motor, and the “S” line features a different exhaust system.  The asking price is a very fair $6,000.  It would be possible to ride this bike for five thousand miles and still loose hardly in depreciation.  As long as regular services have been done–If you wish to ride it–I say this bike is a win!  See it on Craigslist here.

Fully customized 2001 Ducati 748 for sale

While a Ducati 748 does not really qualify as “rare”, this fully customized version seems to be the exception to the rule.  The bike has, as the seller claims, over $30,000 invested and is tastefully done (which is not always the case).  It’s also code-named “GIA” for that added cool factor:


“GIA“… A Custom Built 2001 Ducati 748 Superbike with over $30,000, 3 Years of Build Time, not to mention all my BLOOD, SWEAT and TEARS invested!

Charcoal Grey Custom Paint by “Jason Haskins Hot Rod Shop“ with Clear Coated Carbon-Fiber highlights. “S“ Model 5-Spoke Powder Coated Red Wheels, “Full“ Termignoni Carbon-Fiber Exhaust System, Rebuilt Engine and Replaced Rockers, Surflex Racing Slipper Clutch, GP Brake Master Cylinder, GP Billet Clutch Master Cylinder, Evo Billet Slave Cylinder….

The list of mods is too long to list here,  so check out the ad on Ducati.ms.  The seller is asking $6000 for this sweet ride, which I think is a pretty good deal.  Besides, the 916/748 series was the last of Tamburini’s design before leaving Ducati, so bonus points there as well!

Just in at Ducati Seattle: 2000 Ducati 748R

I realize 5700 miles isn’t brand new, but with all the expensive upgrades and a big bore kit already added, it might as well be! I can’t think of a brand new bike in that price range I’d rather have anyway!
