In Italy, Sport by Mazlow PetosaLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This 998S did not get any interest at the asking price of $14,999. 2001 was a great year for Ducati. Upgraded Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes squeezed every bit of traction from the revamped 998cc Testastretta engine, carrying Troy Bayliss to the championship. In 2002, Ducati launched 155 998S Ben Bostrom and 400 Troy Bayliss special editions …

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This 996 sold for $10,200 after 29 bids on eBay. Built between 1999-2002, the 996 was updated in 2000 with new 5-spoke Marchesini wheels and upgraded front forks. In 2001, Ducati gifted the 996 a rear shock from Ohlins. Arguably, none of the performance benefits will matter with this bike, as it has just 8 miles and …

300 Miles – 2016 Moto Guzzi V7 Stornello Scrambler

In Dual-Sport, Italy by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This Stornello sold for $5,600 after 2 bids on eBay. The “Scrambler” movement is back again, though most OEMs now offer models that typically emphasize style over substance. I always thought the prettiest of the reborn scramblers was the Moto Guzzi V7 Stornello, a limited edition (1,000) model that came with cosmetic changes and a high Arrow …

Naked Panigale V4 Custom – Officine GP Design’s “Penta V4”

In Custom, Italy, Sport by Tim HuberLeave a Comment

When Ducati first unveiled the Panigale, many thought it wouldn’t be long before the Bologna-based brand pulls the cover off a naked version of the full-faired flagship L-Twin. To the dismay of many a Ducatista, the Italian marque never opted to release a production Panigale Streetfighter…though rumors have been swirling that we may be treated to a naked version of …
