Trying to find an EXTREMELY low mileage 1992 Ducati 851? Look no further. This baby’s got 159 ORIGINAL MILES on it. The previous owner didn’t even reset the trip meter either, indicating 159.3 miles to be exact.

1992 is the last model year for the 851, featuring the iconic white tubular trellis frame and a liquid cooled, fuel injected 90º V-twin Desmo engine, as is standard for all Ducatis. As for stopping, the 851 sports golden Brembo 4 pot calipers with excellent feel and power. She can be found rolling on white Marvic wheels and fully adjustable Marzocchi suspension. All these components are practically brand new, considering this bike has likely only been on 1 or 2 rides.

The 851 is the successor to the Ducati 750 F1, which was produced in a period of stagnant development for Ducati; however in 1987, a new surge of investment in R&D allowed the company to develop the new, more powerful and efficient 4 valve head design featured on the 851, which allowed Ducati to once again be a strong competitor in racing. Ducati’s newfound strength with the 851 and its new technology was showcased in 1986 and 1987, ridden by Marco Luchinelli in Pole Position at the Misano GP and SBK, respectively.

With the bike will come a folder full of original purchasing records and the original owner’s manual.
