Found in Italy in 1952, Pierobon specializes in the design of top-notch frames, swingarms, subframes, fuel tanks, and other parts to increase strength, reduce weight, and make your bike faster – they have experience with Ducati’s WSBK and MotoGP teams going back decades. In addition to individual components, they also sell “race chassis kits” for Ducati motors. You can order the kit and slap your own motor in there, or you can buy a complete bike if you’re so inclined. Pierobon’s exclusive US distributor is Boulder Motor Sports, which explains the sticker you see on the fairings.
This example is one of 75 that were produced worldwide with a base price of $75,000. The motor started as an air-cooled 1100DS motor that was bored out to 1200cc, now producing 120 horsepower at the rear wheel at 81 pound-feet of torque on 110 octane gas. Other components include Marchesini magnesium wheels, Brembo brakes, and high-spec Ohlins suspension. In race trim, this bike weighs just 312 pounds. It was raced in 2015 and 2016, then prepped for a new season but the seller has two other Pierobons and he’s not racing this one any more. The sale includes TWO spare motors, one that’s seemingly stock in crate and one that’s been ‘refreshed to a high-spec’ by Moto Corse.
It was offered on eBay back in June and it did not meet reserve with 6 bids up to $15,500. Now you can find this Pierobon for sale here at Iconic Motorbikes in Los Angeles, California for $35,500. Yes, you can go faster for cheaper, but the air-cooled 2V Ducati motor is awesome and this would be a fun track toy if you’ve got a thick wallet.
