Another limited edition from Bologna, the 996 R is the last in series of the Tamburini specials. This one is signed by one of Ducati’s best ever riders Troy Bayliss:
Packed with loads of trick (or should we say, track-ready) accessories, the 996R is the highest spec serial Duke from the legendary 916 family. Delivering a whopping 135 bhp the Testastretta engine on this R model was for the time the most evolved and powerful 2 cylinder motor. The bike came with carbon Termignoni’s as part of the package. On the model here the mirrors and turn lights have been removed. The accessories fitted on the bike include an Alcantara trimmed seat and a NCR fuel cap. This 2001 model is #67 of 500 sold worldwide.
With 20.000 km driven so far, it is available in Switzerland from a private seller at the auction site. Yours with roughly $18k.
