2007 Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000S – one of a kind!

One of a kind 2007 Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000S for sale in San Diego.

The Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000, while a very nice bike, is not exactly what I would call rare (the Paul Smart LE rates a little better), but this fine example is an exception to the norm.  And with the SportClassics being entirely removed from the Ducati lineup for 2011, perhaps they will become rare and collectible in the future. Who knows. In the meantime, have a look at this one:

Up for sale is my pride and joy, 2007 Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000S , Truly one of a kind.
It started life as a regular 07 Sport 1000S and got a FEW upgrades and extras, which include but probably are not limited to;

-Ohlins Steering damper.
-One of 10 fender eliminators in the world (most sought after and disc.)
-Termignoni exhausts , race ECU and K & N performance air filter.
-Adjustable front forks , new , take off of a 2007 Sport 1000DS.
-Gold painted Marchesini wheels off an ST – extremely light and nimble.
-Lower Full fairing (have half fairing securely packaged away.)
-black/red pazzo levers.
-Paul Smith fork guards.
-JC PakBikes license plate relocator.
-GTRossi short rear hugger

The rims are shod with Michelin Power and probably have about 200 miles on them.
The mileage is approaching 7000mi , with scheduled maintenance done at 600mi , 1500 mi and oil and filter change at 4500mi.
The tail has been signed by Cook Nielsen #31 of Ducati Old Blue/New Blue fame and was clear-coated afterwards.
The bike is literally too beautiful for wards and really has to be seen in person.

I am asking $9000 for this red rocket and when you see her in the flesh , you will see why.
you can text or call 858-3367700 or email above for questions , hi-res pics etc.

Considering that an almost brand new Paul Smart LE we listed earlier sold for $9723, this Sport 1000, with all the extra bits added on, doesn’t sound too far fetched. But it isn’t a limited edition like the Paul Smart is.  Whether the “LE” label is worth a few hundred extra is anyone’s call, but one thing’s for sure – this Sport 1000 is a rider and not a museum piece.  And that’s not a bad thing.

2009 Bimota DB7 – low miles and $10,000 off MSRP!

Here’s a very nice 2009 Bimota DB7 with less than 400 miles for sale at $10,000 off MSRP!

It must be Bimota Friday again (haven’t had one of these in a while!) because we have 2 nice Bimota’s coming – the first of which is this DB7 from Ducshop (a specialist Ducati dealer) listed on eBay:

This Red/White (team colors) Demo DB7 has less than 400 miles and has never been titled. Comes with the factory 2 year warranty starting the day it is sold. MSRP was $34,595 so is discounted $10,000. There are no scratches or damage and was pre-delivery inspected by our top technician.

Comes with rear display stand, cover, manuals and MSO

I don’t think the DB7 needs much introducing, so if you’re in the market for one, .

Having said that, I just noticed that the 2009 DB7 Nerocarbonio in our featured listing has a new lower asking price of $25,000.  Hmm… $23,950 for a “regular” (if Bimotas can be called that) DB7 vs. $25,000 for a Nerocarbonio – which one you think I’d choose?  Darn it – where’s that $25,000 when I need it?!

Here’s another 2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR up for sale..

Here’s YET another super low mileage (1434 miles) 2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR up for sale.

While the Desmosedici MotoGP rep is definitely a very sexy bike and its glorious exhaust note will make many grown man cry, the sheer number of D16RRs that we have seen listed for sale lately makes me wonder if it still falls into the “rare” category.  Nevertheless, here’s another for sale from Ducati specialist Pro Italia Motorcycles:

Factory service and warranty until February 2011. Clear bra protection installed along with DP carbon hugger fender and axle sliders. 1434 miles. $44,000

At $44,000, this one has got to be one of the lowest – if not THE lowest – priced D16RRs that I have seen (click here to see the list of D16RRs previously for sale). The price of these have been dropping like flies lately, which according to Dan’s comments, is because of known engine problems and very high maintenance costs.  Which makes me wonder – what will the price of a D16RR be a few more years down the line? Hmm…maybe I can pick one up as a living room display for around $15,000 a couple of years from now?

However, if you want something that’s low maintenance, just as fun to ride (if not more!), and with (relatively) low depreciation value, how about a very clean limited edition Ducati 900SS FE (#299)?

2003 MV Agusta F4S EV03

2003 MV Agusta F4 with only 4,145 miles

So today I found out that I have two soft spots in my heart… one for 916’s and one for cherry MV F4’s with only 4,145.

More sex appeal than the law should allow without having blacked out windows and pink and blue neon hanging above the door is the only way to describe the F4. Okay, so I’m sure there are many other ways to describe it… Now keep in mind I’ve only driven by those joints and I’ve never been inside of them 🙂 Scouts honor!

So, this one is for sale by the same owner as the previously posted 916. The owners pride is apparent in the photo’s. I’m going to hit him up and ask him what kind of polish he uses because mine isn’t so good anymore..

Have a look and it can be yours for $7,800 bucks!

Mint condition. 4,145 Miles. Runs great. Everything works. All Stock. Hardly a blemish on it. Michelin Pilot Power tires with less than 1,000 miles on them. Comes with original rear stand, cover, instruction book.

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.

1993 Bimota DB2 in San Diego – update with lower price!

Very clean looking red/white 1993 Bimota DB2 for sale in San Diego.

Update: 5.26.10 –

Update 2: Now with hi-res pictures from the seller

Bimota DB2 For Sale

This is an update post of a 1993 Bimota DB2 that we’ve posted earlier back in February – the asking price back then was $11,000, which I thought was a bit high and suggested that $8000 was a more realistic price. Guess what the new lower price is?  Yup, you’ve guessed it – $8000!

Here are some additional photos of this clean looking DB2:

The seller (still) didn’t give too many details, but the bike looks very clean with low miles (previous post listed 4,400 miles).  And at $8000, it’s bang on what I would consider a good deal.  They don’t do mortgage on babies, do they?

Oh, and here’s the link to the listing on Craigslist.

Well I’ve heard of garage queens but this is a new one, a  den queen.  This 999s has been living the life of  luxury for the past few years.  Maybe you’ve been looking for a big red conversation piece or a chance to ride  a brand new “old bike”; well that oppurtunity has arrived.  The seller is even tempting you with the hint that the reserve is not all that high.

He says:

Up for auction is my 2007 Ducati 999S Parts Unlimited Edition . This bike is brand new with only 1 mile on it from the factory. This bike is completely stock & has not a scratch on it & spends it’s life on a battery tender in my den. It comes with 3 keys, 2 black & 1 red, all manuals & the rest of the sticker kit. Ducati only built 150 of these bikes that were signed by Ben Bostrom & Neil Hodgson when they were team mates racing in AMA superbike. I’ve listed this bike 2 prior times & came close to the reserve both times, (hopefully 3rd time is a charm!). Brand new in 2007 this bike retailed for $20,000. 3 years later it’s still brand new & I’m listing it with a low reserve. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me. I do have the bike listed for sale locally so I do reserve the right to end the auction early.

Showroom fresh:

The bidding looks pretty active so far.  The auction started at $1,000 and is up around $9,000 as of this writing.  I’m sure it will have a ways to go to meet the reserve.  I know all the Ducati race replicas are sought after but where does this one rank compared to say a Xerox or Bayliss replica?  My guess would be just a slight step down since the bike didn’t have quite the sparkling race history here in the United States as it did overseas.  Race history aside this looks like a good oppurtunity to pick one up that really hasn’t turned a wheel; outside of a den that is.  Check out the auction here and don’t let some local beat you to it.
