Post-Sale Update: After 9 bids on eBay, this Ducati Paul Smart 1000LE sold for $16,920.
One of this generation’s instant classics, the Ducati Paul Smart was a limited edition inspired by the Ducati race bikes of the 1970s – one of which was piloted by Paul Smart to a win at the Imola 200 in 1972. Limited to only 2,000 units worldwide, prices already reflect the desirable nature of this beautiful bike.
The heart of the Paul Smart (how’s that for rhyming?) features a 992cc desmodromic twin engine that produced 92 horsepower. Harkening to the Ducati 750 Imola Desmo race bike, it features the beautiful bubble style half fairing and the green frame. Rounding out the excellent factory specifications are Ohlins upside-down forks in the front and an Ohlins monoshock in the rear.
This specific Ducati Paul Smart is in fantastic shape, and is a ‘daily rider’, though the seller probably has a different definition than we do on what a daily rider is if it’s accumulated less than 6,000 miles in 7 years. Still – just means there’s more life left for the next lucky owner. This bike has received some choice upgrades, including miscellaneous carbon fiber pieces, the rare NLA #16 panels, and most importantly (in our auditory-biased world), Termignoni slip on’s, which make this bike sound amazing. We’ll gladly start taking donations to make this a company daily rider.
