Post Sale Update: This 916 Senna sold for $32,207 (including buyer’s fee) on Iconic Motorbike Auctions Powered by Bike-urious.
On the auction side of things, we just received a collection of bikes from Danny McKenna – CEO of McKenna Motors. I won’t bug you with every single one of them, but there’s some special stuff with super low miles. One that’s about to end is this Ducati 916 Senna with just 6 miles (10 km) on the odometer. It’s met reserve, so it’s going to find a new owner very soon! Will it be you?
If you need a reminder, this was built to raise funds for the late Ayrton Senna’s namesake foundation. Ducati took just under 1,000 of their standard 916 two-seaters (known as biposto), and added carbon fiber in a few choice places – like the subframe, chain guard, clutch cover, front fender, exhaust pipe insulation panel, and mudguard. You also got one of the coolest paint schemes to ever grace a Duc – metallic gray with red wheels, and a Senna decal.
Ayrton Senna was a personal friend of the Castiglioni family (partially, no doubt, because he was a repeat high-profile Ducati customer), and had actually personally agreed to the first run of 200 bikes named in his honour before his demise. Profits from the reps went to the Senna Foundation, to provide Brazilian kids with free sports facilities, as long as they went to school. The first run arrived in 1995 – silver with red wheels, with a Strada-spec engine (minus the posh Pankl rods) with an SP chassis (Öhlins shock, cast-iron, fully-floating Brembo discs and braided brake hoses).
