Post Listing Update: This 996S was pulled off of eBay because “there was an error in the listing.”
The Ducati 996 needs no introduction. Superbikes in general are better because the 996 existed, and every detail was designed to be beautiful as well as functional. 2001 was the last year of production before the 998 engine, and Troy Bayliss gave it a proper farewell by winning the Superbike World Championship. The 996S model had Showa forks and an Ohlins shock, and a monoposto tail section painted white mimicked the race bikes.
This piece of Ducati history (VIN: ZDM1SB5T21B011511) has everything you could ask for. Gorgeous red fairings. A single sided swingarm linked to an Ohlins shock. Dual Termignoni exhausts to release the thundering V-twin song. 6,424 miles indicate an easy life as well. Once the world recognized the 996 as royalty, they were either put away to preserve or ridden into the sunset. Good condition options became hard to find, and this looks like a good one. As an added bonus, the original parts are included along with a list of recent services.
