Post-Sale Update: After being relisted, this Ducati Supermono sold for $125,500.
Alright – I know yesterday was my “Ducati” day but when a Supermono comes up for sale, I can’t ignore it. 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!
First year (’93) models had a water-cooled, 550cc single cylinder engine that produced 61 horsepower. To help with the inherent vibrations of a single, Ducati engineers had a fake con rod that acted like a second piston. Later bikes were bumped up to 570cc and produced 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 Ducati 916. Want to learn more (and get better pictures)?

This specific Ducati Supermono is number 33 of 67, and bidding is already over $100,000 with over a week left to go. I told you it was a collectable! Part of what’s helping the value of this bike is the fact that it’s never been used, and as such the seller claims it might be the most perfect Supermono, regardless of what’s for sale or not. He may not be lying.
