Forget about it! The 4th 1198s Corse Edition for sale!

2010 Ducati 1198s Corse Edition with 200 miles for sale in Rhode Island.

OK, I’m officially taking the 1198s Corse Edition off the list of rare sports bikes!  This is the 4th 1198s Corse Edition that we have listed within the span of 3 weeks…

2010 DUCATI 1198S CORSE SE Special Edition.  No reserve auction. This bike was bought locally at Razee Motorcycles.  New retail is $24,995. Never driven in the rain.. Always heated garage kept, on a battery tender. Has only 200 miles. Never taken to a track day. Never been laid down. Never even been dirty. The bike is in perfect shape, no scratches, No dents or any other defects noted. This bike is pristine shape.
The bike is Adult owned (I’m 51), is still in it’s break in period and hasn’t been over 5,000 rpm. . This is the Corse S with traction control and data logging. Oversize aluminum tank, Ohlins suspension, forged Marchisini wheels and factory Corse graphics. Comes from the factory with 2 ECU’s and two sets of pipes; the race (installed) as well as the factory exhaust and computer, passenger rear seat, and rear riding pegs. Included with the bike is the Ducati Rear stand that engages the hollow axle of the single sided swingarm.
The factory race computer runs open loop allowing full control with a power commander. There is a new Power commander V usb wired to the harness with a “zero” map installed. It’s functional but no calibrations have been loaded. I also have all the manuals, extra key and all paperwork. Included with the bike is an optional Ducati factory alarm system (which they no longer make) that has not yet been installed. I have the clear title (no loans or leans) in hand.
According to the seller, this bike is build # 240 (out of how many Ducati doesn’t say). We have already listed three of these before, so I’ll skip on in the introduction, but you can read about them here.  Instead, here’s a video of Cycle World giving the 1198s Corse Edition a good spanking at Motorland Aragon (sounds like a something out of Lord of The Rings):

The starting price of $18,000 sounds a bit high compared to others previously listed, but this one does have the lowest miles out of all of them (200 miles?!), but in any case, to drool over the nice pics (just make sure the keyboard is covered).

It’s pouring Ducati 1198s! Second 1198s Corse Edition (#007) in a week!

2010 Ducati 1198s Corse Edition #007 with super low miles

You all know what they say about rain… this is second 1198s Corse Edition that has come up for sale within a week.  As I mentioned in my previous 1198s Corse post, I think the 1198s Corse is one of the best looking newer Ducatis (and no, the Diavel isn’t one of them!) and the brushed aluminum tank is the highlight for the bike.  What’s cool about this particular one compared to the other listed earlier:

-#007 (if you’re a James Bond fan, which I am!)

– even lower mileage (1,176 miles?!)

– a set of tire warmers from Ducati, two Ducati lawn chairs (ooo-er!) , a Ducati EZ up tent (DOUBLE ooo-er!) and a special Ducati titanium Swiss made wrist watch

2010 DUCATI 1198S CORSE SE Special Edition, (#007)… LOW Number!!!  This bike was bought locally at Pandora Motorsports of Chattanooga,TN. The first scheduled maintenance was done at Pandora.. The bike is ADULT owned, Never driven in the rain.. Always garage kept, covered and on a battery tender. Has only 1176miles.. Never taken to track days. Never been laid down. The bike is in perfect shape, no scratches, No dents or any other defects noted.. This bike is pristine shape. I love this bike from the way it looks, to the way it rides and especially the way it sounds..  New this bike retails for $24,995. Included with the bike is the Ducati Rear stand in the pictures, as well as a set of tire warmers from Ducati, two Ducati lawn chairs (see pics), a Ducati EZ up Tent (off course its RED!) [we all know that red tents are the fastest! – ph] and a special Ducati titanium Swiss made wrist watch (see Pics). As well as the factory exhaust and computer, Passenger rear seat, and rear riding pegs..I also have all the manuals, extra key and all paperwork.

I’m a sucker for limited editions and this one ticks all the right boxes for me.  Too bad that a.) I’m cheapskate  b.) I don’t have another $20,000 to spend on bikes (not without serious consequences anwyay), or else I’ll be scheming how to ship this one back to Hong Kong. Come on Powerball!

If you’re not me, then .

2010 Ducati 1198 R Corse Special Edition

2010 Ducati 1198 R Corse Special Edition 

Hey, how about some style points for the artsy photos?   I have to give Ducati a little grief for a second.  I went to their website to check out the specs on the Special Edition.  Any guess as to what exotic part they list first for this bike?  How about this, “The 1198 Corse Special Edition marks the historic edition of a new Ducati Corse logo”.  I’m on the edge of my seat now!  That’s almost as bad as when Suzuki wouldn’t change a bike a bit and  then say it had “bold new graphics”.  Of course this isn’t a Suzuki and it is loaded with with some nice bits;  like an aluminum gas tank and an included race kit.  Apparently you are getting everything you would as with the 2010 Bayliss rep but with the special paint scheme.  Hence the historic logo! 

A little from the Ebay ad:

This top-of-the-range model is supplied with a race kit that includes a full racing exhaust system with 102dB carbon fibre mufflers by Termignoni and dedicated ECU which raises power output to approximately 186hp (intended strictly for track use only). Also in the kit is a unique Ducati Corse branded bike cover designed by Aldo Drudi and rear paddock stand as well as an official cased plaque of authentication that confirms the collectable value of this exclusive motorcycle.
All this technology in one lightweight package.  Only in a Ducati.  

For you collectors out there, this bike is #2; the SECOND R off the line!
This one is on Ebay but it listed as a classified and not an auction.  It can be yours if you happen to have 40,000 one dollar bills laying around.  I’ve always wondered if these limited edition Ducati’s go for full price.  Like a 3 year old, most of us want it right now but it sure seems like if you can hold out a bit you can find these limited edition bikes with low miles for considerably less.  I’m not helping them sell this very well am I?  If you have to be the first on your block with the new Corse logo .
Here are some decent close up shoots of the bike and turn up your speakers for the second video!

1993 Ducati Supermono #09 Of 65/67 In Australia

This is a real Supermono in Australia!

Bike:  1993 Ducati Supermono #09

Price:  Currently $85,000 AUD (eBay)

Location:  Melbourne, Australia

Mileage:  N/A Track Bike

Located in Melbourne, Australia is a 1993 Ducati Supermono number 09 of 65.  This example was built in April ’93 and brought into Australia by Fraser’s.  The bike was only used for local competition and has been fitted with a 575cc barrel.  The original barrels, another set of fairings, spare wheels, an additional piston and other spares are included with the sale of the bike.  The entire history of this bike is known and looks to be in fantastic condition.

The standout aspect of this bike is that it was designed for the Supermono series which means it’s a big, four-stroke, single; the second aspect is that this four-stroke only weighs in at 300lbs fully ready, 277lbs with an empty tank of gas while that big single produces 61.4hp at the rear-wheel.  Sounds like fun!  The Supermono rev’s to 10750rpm, is fitted with Weber fuel injection, and accelerates to 120 just as fast as a 600 inline-four and tops out at a claimed 141mph.  All this magic is achieved through Ducati’s heavy used of carbon fiber and magnesium wherever possible.  The bodywork, subframe, fuel tank, and air box are all carbon with the case covers, triple clamp and other bits being finished in magnesium.  The suspension is all top-of-the-line Ohlins units with 42mm USD forks sourced from the 888 Corsa and a cantilevered Ohlins shock out back.  The exhaust is a Termignoni unit and the wheels are Marchesini magnesium units.  The motor is essentially a 888 single cylinder with a dummy connecting rod to cancel-out the traditional vibrations of a single.

Jay informed me that Farracci had one of these in ’93 with an asking price of $35k and everyone laughed as it was the same price as the 916/955 race bike at the time; and eight years ago these were going for $50k.  The current asking price of $70k USD suggest that it’s probably doing better than your CD that’s been chugging along since 2000–and this one’s much better to look at too.  The series may have not be a world success but, it did bring us a very cool, and very rare, piece of Ducati machinery.  Hurry though, as this bike only has half a day for you decide if it’s worth $85k AUD to you!  If it interests you, have a look at this example on eBay Australia

2004 Ducati 998S Final Edition In Southern California With 2,900 Miles

This 998S FE is in showroom condition and has never seen water, not even from a hose!  Located in Costa Mesa, California is a 2004 Ducati 998S, Final Edition, with 2,900 miles on the odometer.  The seller states that this bike has never seen water from rain or a hose and has always been wiped down and kept under cover in a garage.  The only modifications from stock are Termignoni titanium exhaust, titanium clutch cover, and a Power Commander.  The parts were all installed by an official Southern California Ducati dealer and the bike was tuned to match–all original parts are included with the bike.

We’ve seen a few of the 112 998S Final Edition bikes that were imported into the U.S. and mileage seems to determine the value more than anything.  This, current, 998S with 2,900 miles is advertised at $12,500.  A recent listing for a modified 9.5k mile bike had an asking price of $8.5k but, we also saw an odd 147, supposedly, original mile example for sale from a dealer for $23k so you can see how big the swing is and none of the bikes we’ve seen have had over 10k miles.  I would say that in the heat of summer–and an excellent economy–this bike is probably priced right heading into the end of May but, anything could happen and the seller may need to be flexible if they want to move it quickly.

The 998S, FE, features an Ohlins steering damper, fully adjustable front and rear Ohlins suspension, a Ducati Corse extended crankcase sump, a special graphics kit and a silver plaque on the triple clamp.

1999 Ducati 996 SPS In California

This is a usable 996 SPS with less than 10k miles in California!  Located in San Francisco, California is a 1999 Ducati 996 SPS with 9,800 miles.  Let’s get the big stuff out of the way first, this bike has been repainted as a Ducati Performance Paolo Casoli replica with a black powder coated frame.  The other features the seller mentions:

– Full Ohlins suspension – forks, rear shock and Damper – 5 Spoke Marchesini wheels – DP carbon fiber front fender, radiator cowl, airbox, rear chain guard and exhaust guard – Updated Yoyodyne clutch slave – Brembo billet brake and clutch master cyclinders – Brembo GP billet calipers – Full Termignoni 50mm exhaust system – Tecnosel seat – DP rear sets – DP clutch plate and clutch cover

The bike also comes with the original owner’s handbook and Ducati rear stand.  This bike isn’t original but the seller is realistic with an asking price of $9,600.  This bike has had the original Showa front suspension replaced with later Ohlin’s units.  This isn’t a bad looking bike by any means and would probably make a fantastic Homologation special that you could actually use.  See the other SPS Ducati’s we’ve posted here.  See this bike on Craigslist here.

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.
