In 2007, Ducati released a limited edition of just 100 SportClassics exclusively for the North American market. Called the Special Edition, it combined modern tech with traditionally-inspired design that was designed to remind Ducati fans of the 1978 900SS Darmah with its classic black and gold paint scheme. 90 were sold in the US, and 10 were sold in Canada. Iconic currently has #1 for sale, and it’s got zero miles on the odometer.
The Special Edition is one of the rarest modern Ducatis, and they were sold as Monopostos with an identification plaque on the triple trees. Other modifications to make this bike unique included spoked wire wheels, twin muffler shotgun exhaust, and one Sachs shock (as opposed to the dual shocks of the other SportClassics) to make room for said exhaust.
This example is VIN: ZDM1WABP07B004460, and it is number 001 of the 100. As noted above, the odometer shows zero miles. The seller acquired it this year from a collector – this Ducati had been in his private collection for years and it has obviously been on display its entire life. There are no modifications, it is 100% original down to the Pirelli Phantom Sport tires with date codes of 3805 and 4005. There’s a couple of minor scratches and the battery is dead but I have to assume the next owner is going to keep this as a display piece. The sale includes the black key, red key, and code card.
