Post Listing Update: This Supermono did not meet reserve with 77 bids up to $127,100 on eBay.
In the majestic history of the Italian firm, the Ducati Supermono is one of the greats. Arguably one of the most collectable Ducatis ever produced, just 67 Supermonos were built exclusively for racing in the Designed to race in the “Sound of Singles” Championship (a support event for the World Superbike Championship), this incredible bike weighs just 267 pounds!
To help with the inherent vibrations of a single, Ducati engineers had a fake con rod that acted like a second piston. As a ’95 model (the last year of production), this bike got a displacement bump to from 550 to 570cc and the motor was good for 76 horsepower. Weight was a huge priority, so there was carbon fiber everywhere – the bodywork, sub frame, fuel tank, and more. Ohlins suspension and Termignoni exhaust were complemented with Marchesini magnesium wheels – you also got magnesium on the case covers and triple clamps. Penned by Pierre Terblanche, the Supermono design was highly influential in the instant-classic 916.
This example is #12 out of 67, and the seller says it’s been fully restored with an “engine overhaul at AMS Ducati in Dallas, Texas.” The sale includes front and rear stands, a 24V portable starter, and several spare parts (silencer, NOS crankcases, water pump, carbon fiber fender, etc.”
