FOR SALE: Ducati 998R .. Genuine unmolested pristine example

Hi People

I know I'm going to regret this in years to come, but I've decided its time to let my Ducati 998R go to a new home.

I‘ve been mulling it over in my head for months and months, and have now come to the decision that it’s never really ever going to be ridden, so I might as well sell her..

Also, we are moving to a small property in the centre of town and therefore not everything can come with us because of the lack of space.

The catalyst was that I sold my 1969 T120 Bonneville earlier this year, and after that went I thought to myself, what’s the point of holding onto these collectable bikes if I’m never intending to ride them.

So here we are at another cross roads in my biking history..

The bike has never ever been tracked, and spent most of its life in the Hallway of our old house.

It comes with all the normal OEM 998R extras.

Full factory carbon bodywork
Limited Edition model plaque
Ducati Performance bike cover
Rear paddock stand
Standard road legal & race Termi exhaust silencers
2 ECU’s to go with the optional exhaust set up
Standard and Tecnosel Race Seat Pad ( Both still brand new)
All the genuine owners handbooks, dealer service books and corresponding invoices and even the original bill of sale from new.

There are various other Ducati Performance parts fitted on the bike and most of the external OEM bolts and nuts where replaced with Titanium equivalents


This particular bike came direct from Ducati to the supplying dealer with an optional extra set of Ducati Performance SBK magnesium wheels fitted and the original 998R OEM Forged aluminium Marchesini wheels with new Brembo discs came boxed up separately.. These are still new and have never been fitted or used.

The bike is 100% genuine and is in as new condition.. The mileage is an authentic 4K and all paperwork comes with the bike.

For Sale £17,500.

I hope she finds a good home to go too and to someone who appreciates this rare last of the Tamburini designed Ducati’s. Those who know me, know how much this bike means to me.

Please PM me if you need any further info or pictures.

Cheers for reading this advert
John

My old Foggy Rep is in Jason Griffith Motorcycles having its first MOT since being on the IOM.. Apparently, it made quite an impression on those visiting Jason's shop and they couldn't believe it was a 12 year old bike..

I'll post some pictures of the old girl in the IOM once she gets delivered back to her new owner.

I searched awhile ago for a 998R to own. In california we have strict emissions rules and only a few of the 998Rs that arrived here became street legal. Otherwise, too late and no riding on the road here!

So, now that you're an "International Man of Leisure", why do you still live in California? Register the thing at your second home in Nevada, Oregon, Texas, etc., and ride it on their plates......

BTW, no emission or noise testing in Bubbaland........

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........
