(1997) Ducati 916SPS/Fast By Ferracci 1026 In Oklahoma

This is a 916SPS fitted with a FBF 1026 stroker kit!  Located in Stillwater, Oklahoma is a Ducati 916SPS that has been fitted with the Fast By Ferracci 1026 kit.  The seller makes no mention of a year or mileage (other than that it is low) but, I’m going to assume it is an early SPS because of what look to be Showa front forks.  If this bike is built to the same spec as the FBF display bikes it has:

  • FBF 1026 big bore kit
  • Titanium connecting rods
  • FBF stroker powercrank
  • FBF ported cylinder heads
  • Oversized vales
  • Custom stage 3 EPROM
  • FBF 54mm full exhaust

The bike is also fitted with early Dymag carbon five-spoke wheels.  I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it doesn’t have the FBF carbon bodywork and tank judging by the original looking bodywork but, I could be wrong, this is all speculation.  The full kit probably, originally, ran the seller just under $10k and resulted in just under 150hp.  These 916SPS bikes appear to have stopped depreciating and, I’ll bet, this seller is probably looking for a lot more than a stock SPS.  See the previous 916SPS’ we’ve posted here.  See the Craigslist post here.

1997 Ducati 916 Monoposto

1997 Ducait 916

UPDATE: Sold – Sold – Sold!

Okay, so not very high on the rare scale, but I’ve always had a soft spot for this particular model. So- I decided to do a RSBFS ‘quick spot’ and show it some love.

This one has more shine than the sun and looks to be in stellar shape. I’d say in about 5-10 more years these will be gobbled up like hotcakes on Sunday morning as the now 30 year old’s start turning 40 and have their mid-life crises and say “Man, I wish I would have bought one of these when…..”

Jump to the CL ad here

Stock bike… not hopped up or customized. Not covered with aftermarket carbon fiber. Runs great. Sounds amazing. Maintenance records since new. 19,350 miles. Full service (including belts) at 18,000 miles. New Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires less than 100 miles ago. Barely a blemish anywhere on the bike. You would have to look far and wide to find a nicer early 916. 1997 was the last year with the original graphics and bodywork. Bike currently has HeliBars, a Corbin seat, and Yoshimura carbon exhausts… BUT… it comes with the mint condition stock seat, bars, and exhausts.

Cheers!

1998 Ducati 916 SPS With 1,800 Original Miles

This is an unmolested 916 SPS with 1,800 original miles!  Located in Bloomfield, Michigan is a 1998 Ducati 916 SPS with 1,800 original miles and looks to be completely stock.  The seller states that they have $30,000 into this bike suggesting that it may have modifications but, none that can clearly be seen in the poor quality photograph.  The seller only states that this bike is in showroom condition and they may be interested in two, late model, SeaDoo GTX’s for trade–very convienant if you just so happen to have two and are looking for a SPS!  If you don’t have some SeaDoo’s, the asking price is $20,000.  It’s hard to judge the price based on what we’ve seen before but, I’m going to guess that the seller is probably going to budge a bit on the price if this is going to move.  $20k is what we’ve seen for a sub 1k mile example and we’ve seen a 4.5k mile example with an asking price of $12k suggesting that the mileage on these bikes is very important to the overall value.

As we’ve mentioned before, over the standard 916, the SPS features a motor that actually displaces 996cc’s, Ohilns rear shock (Did the ’98’s feature Ohlins forks or the Showa units of the ’97?), Brembo calipers, discs, pads and braided lines, two injectors per cylinder, bigger valves, a lighter crank, stronger cases and an EPROM chip which all combine to give an additional 20hp over the stock 916.

The SPS bikes will always be special regardless of mileage so make sure you know what you’re intentions with it are before you purchase one.  See this very nice example on Craigslist here.

1997 Ducati 916 SPS With 750 Original Miles

This is a 916 SPS with very low miles and some upgrades!  Located in Queens, New York is a 1997 Ducati 916 SPS with 750 original miles.  This bike features:

(NO CHIPS OR SCRATCHES)
ALL BILLETED DUCATI
RACING FACTORY PARTS
REAR FOOT SET ADJUSTABLE
CARBON CANS
CLUTCH COVER LEVERS
CARBON TANK COVER
AIRBOX
REAR FENDER/FRONT
SIGNAL LIGHTS-4

The 916 SPS was a homologation bike for World SuperBike and actually had a 996cc motor despite the retained 916 designation.  The bike features 43mm Showa TiN USD fully adjustable forks, Ohlins adjustable rear shock, fully floating Brembo discs, two injectors per cylinder, bigger valves and down pipes, lighter crank and different cases.  These modifications result in twenty extra horsepower and a wet weight of 212kg.   This is the highest specification 916 bike that Ducati produced before the incoming 996.  The asking price is $23,000 which is more than we’ve seen for 916 SPS’s in the past.  For reference, the original MSRP was $18,400.  See this bike on Craigslist here.

2004 Ducati 998S Final Edition In Arizona

Located in Scottsdale, Arizona is a very nice 2004 Ducati 998S Final Edition.  This bike has 9,500 miles and features some usual Duc’ modifications:

-Termignoni 3/4 system
– STM slave cylinder
– kick stand ignition bypass
– carbon fiber instrument cluster, boot guards, belly pan, intake ducts, exhaust guard, exhaust pipes, chain guard, sprocket cover
– oil breather recall solution installed
– K&N filter
– CRG bar ends
– CRG adjustable brake and clutch levers
– Michelin Pilot Power dual compound tires
– SpeedyMoto clutch cover basket, springs, and plates.

The 998S FE is the last incarnation of Ducati’s legendary, and iconic, 916.  As standard these bikes featured fully-adjustable Ohlins front & rear suspension and an Ohlins steering damper.  The motor is the same from the 996R with an extended crankcase sump for assured lubrication during hard riding.  The cosmetic features of this edition are the traditional badge on the triple-clamp, tricolor tail, and commemorative stickers on the tail and tank.  The asking price is $8,500.  The maintenance required for the R motor may be more but, I’d take the ultimate iteration of the 916 series over a base 848 or 999 of equal value.  See this 998S on Craigslist here.

Update on Bay Area Collection For Sale

Here is an update from Rory on the remaining inventory in the collection — with pictures!

Update 1.20.10: I got another update from Rory, and he tells me the RC45 and 888 are both sold now.

We’ve been a bit surprised by the great response through your site and been scrambling a bit to keep up with the inquiries. Invariably, people have been asking for details on bikes that we haven’t pulled out of storage to work on. And, as you already know, a real enthusiast from the East Coast struck a deal for 5 of the bikes, redirecting our focus for a time. A fellow drove up from LA on Christmas Eve to take the Ducati F1, and we have someone coming from Reno today to look at the Honda RC45.

We’ve at least rolled all the remaining bikes out to take photos and determine general condition and mileage. Anyone can contact us directly for more info.

Here is what is remaining as of January 5th:

’04 Benelli Tornado Tre – This bike has only 2 miles showing on the odometer and looks as though it has never been on the road.

’00 MV F4 – 426 miles The VIN# on this bike ends with 100000. While we can’t be absolutely sure, I spoke with someone at MV USA who believes that this probably the first F4 in the country.

’98 Ducati 916 SPS – 6059 miles. I’ve ridden this one around the block – great bike.

’93 Ducati 888 SPO – 2031 miles. Next on our list to get running.

’06 Yamaha R1 Rossi replica – 17 miles.

’06 Yamaha R1 Special Edition – 0 miles. No photo, but it’s the traditional Yamaha yellow and black paint scheme.

’99 Yamaha R7 OW02 – 3646 km.

’94 Honda RC45 – 3718 miles. Has two 1” diameter paint scuffs on side and rear panels but otherwise good shape. This bike is running now.

’72 Norton 810 Dunstall – 1983 miles. A very nice example and also now running.

Please contact Rory at vtauto@sbcglobal.net for further information about the remaining bikes available for sale in the collection. I’m still tempted to get a second mortgage and get a big trailer for most of them!

If you have a special bike or collection that needs attention, email us at web@raresportbikesforsale.com. We’d be happy to consider your submission for regular posting, or we can provide a feature service for a small fee that will promote the listing on every page of our site.

1998 Ducati 916 SPS #278 of 400

 

**Update**  This bike had a $15,000 bid and the reserve wasn’t met, but the owner lowered the reserve to $15,001.  Is it just me or does that seem a little funny?  Hopefully, this SPS has a new home.

 

Good looking, well taken care of 916 SPS for sale on // <![CDATA[
document.write('eBay‘);
// ]]>.  I’m a huge fan of the 90 homologation production bikes and this one sure is nice.  The SPS’s don’t come available that often so if this tickles your fancy – Get on it!

916 SPS on ebay

1234

This one has had some work done by the “Ducati Master” Eraldo Ferracci.  The seller has the following to say…
 

Has never been raced. Has never been in the rain. Has never been down. Bike is kept in the Living Room on stands. If you are a collector this is the bike for you, it is Museum quality. Has 1026 Stroker kit, engine set up by Fast by Ferracci. Bike was Dyno tuned by Eraldo.

 
For me, this is the body style to have.  Ducati set it up with the good stuff from the factory and then Ferracci made this one better.  The owner appears to have pampered it and it shows.  At $15,500 starting bid the reserve hasn’t been met, but it has a buy-it-now at $16,500.00.  I did a quick search and couldn’t come up with the original MSRP, so if anyone has that info pass it on and I’ll post it up.

1997 Ducati 916 with only 183 miles from Private Collection

Please join me in welcoming Doug as our latest author at Rare SportBikes For Sale.

Doug has been riding since he was a boy, and in addition to having owned a number of great motorcycles over the years, he also has experience campaigning an FZR400 in WERA. Welcome aboard Doug! -dc


 

WOW! is all I can say….. 

14 year old factory tires183 miles!1997 916 for saleOhlins

This is one super nice, low mileage Ducati for sale, from a private collection, right now on

The owner states: There are NO deviations from original on this 916. The powerful liquid-cooled V-twin is untouched. It is 100% stock and ‘as-delivered’ from the factory.

In my opinion, this is the one that put Ducati on the map.  They were good before, but this model made them great!  This one even comes with the original tires!  This is one of those bikes that I would love to have, but would be afraid to ride and decrease the value.  My guess is as good as yours as to what this bike will sell for, but it will make a great addition to any stable.
