Featured Listing – 2005 Ducati Monster S4R

8.20.2019: Sold in just 14 days. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Jamming superbike performance into a standard package, Ducati brought more excitement to the Monster corner of the showroom with their water-cooled S4’s.  For 2005 the S4R used the four-valve 996 engine tuned for 113hp.  From the Carolinas, this blue example has been nicely accessorized and maintained.

At the top of the Monster range, the S4R used premium suspension components are from Showa, with Ti nitrided fork legs and fully adjustable monoshock.  The sculptural single-sided swingarm is templated from the MH900e showcase.  Brakes are semi-floating Brembos, super(bike) sized at 320mm.  The classic trellis frame is in body color, which camouflages some of the surface mounted plumbing and electrical.  The bikini fairing and carbon accents keep the eyes moving, and the 996cc engine runs cooler without the usual fairing.

Longtime RSBFS reader Ryan chose well as the previous owner had started with a good year (2005’s have a steel fuel tank and no ethanol issues), specified the option paint, and added 2-into-2 Termignoni exhaust, Speedymoto bar risers and Pazzo levers.  Ryan made his own mechanical and appearance mods, and has these comments-

I serviced all the fluids, installed Pirelli Angel GT tires, and a new EVR sintered clutch pack, blue STM clutch pressure plate, Oberon slave cylinder and Speedymoto open cover to showcase the dry clutch. At 16,000 miles it received valve adjustment, belts, fuel filter, new EK chain, 14 tooth front sprocket, Ducati Performance Touring seat, CRG bar end mirrors, Rizoma front signals, and integrated tail light. The ECU was sent out to Houston Superbikes for software flash and disabling of the immobilizer.  The bike runs flawlessly, has clean title, never taken to the track, great condition with only a few minor paint chips and faded carbon fiber heel guards. This year it’s had fluids serviced, new coolant hoses, rear brake pads, and new timing belts. Including original seat, front and rear stands with sale.

Ryan’s S4R has 22,795 miles but looks much less, especially with the maintenance history.  Some find a certain beauty in the complexity of a 996, and this silver, black and blue Monster makes it look as good as ever.  Asking $5,000 for the pleasure,

Autograph Hounds: 2007 Ducati 999S Team USA Edition

For Sale: 2007 Ducati 999S Team USA Edition

Sorry for the short trigger time on this one, RSBFS fans. There is not much time to go on this interesting piece of Ducati history. Sure, the Parts Unlimited “Team USA” livery looks good, and the 999s is no slouch in the motorsports department – but what makes this one interesting is that the tail section is signed by both Ben Bostrom and Neil Hodgson. If you are into signatures, this one is connected to some pretty good looking memorabilia.

From the seller:
2007 Ducati 999S “Team USA” Special Edition in excellent condition with only 2440 miles! This was the very last 999 model Superbike produced by Ducati and was a Special Edition commemorating the 2006 Ducati AMA Superbike race team, in “S” model trim with lots of extras! Probably one of the best race-replica paint schemes ever produced by Ducati, this bike is STUNNING to look at! The tail section is hand-signed by Ducati AMA Superbike team riders Neil Hodgson and Ben Bostrom. Nicely accessorized with Leo Vince full race exhaust system with remapped ECU, SpeedyMoto billet clutch cover, billet adjustable rearsets, and Pazzo billet adjustable levers. This is not only a great bike to ride, it’s a great bike to OWN as there was a very limited production run of these machines, it has already reached “Collector” status in the minds of many!

With super low miles and what looks to be in fantastic condition, this 999s is waiting for a new home. Currently priced at $12,495, it again forces me to wonder aloud at the monetary value a famous person with a sharpie can add to the sale of a bike. History shows that some scribbles do not often a premium price make, yet this is a very cool opportunity all the same.

For your chance to check this one out, click the link and jump over to the auction. This is a great looking bike with some neat history. Sorry we caught this one late – so be sure and move quickly!

Jay and Team Veloce will of course be there as early as Thursday, but Alex and Dan arrive Saturday and Sunday.

MotoGP at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

I feel very fortunate to be able to attend this year’s MotoGP races at Indy! Doug and I will both be there and we’d like to make this first annual Rare SportBikes Meetup! We’re staying at the Westin downtown and are currently considering locations for an impromptu meetup. I’m buying the first round! Doug was there last year and tells me they close one of the main streets downtown and it’s reserved for motorcycle-only parking — and it’s packed! Stay tuned for more information on what we hope to make our annual gathering at Indy!

Press Attention

We’ve been mentioned twice this month on MCN, the world’s leading Motorcycle news magazine!

See this piece on their website about the Bimota Moto2 bikes for sale and this attached .pdf about the homogolation group for sale.

Planned New Features – Coming soon, this will be our new companion website. It will serve as the knowledge base to assist RSBFS readers when researching models for sale. We plan to author and accept guest entries to build a homegrown area that details not only the specifications, but the real history of the models, first hand accounts, and exclusive media like wallpapers and videos. This site will also have areas for reader submitted features, pictures and videos!

Price Guides – We’re building a database of asking prices and auction closes for the bikes we post on this site. In as little as 3-6 months, we’ll have some great data to work from in determining the best values in the used sportbike market. Please let us know if you spot amazing close prices, high or low, on eBay in particular so we can add these values to our database!

Thanks to everyone for your support and looking forward to making RSBFS better and better this summer!

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.
