Additional photos of this Ducati 916 Senna are available here for your perusal.

Ducati’s 916 was an instant classic as soon as it was shown to the world. Built for 5 years before evolving into the 996, this bike was one of Massimo Tamburini’s crowning achievements. Though it produced less horsepower than the Japanese competition, the engine made more torque, and no bike from any country could compete on style.

In 1998, the Guggenheim featured an exhibit called “The Art of the Motorcycle”. The 916 was one of the few modern bikes to make the cut. But you probably already know all about the 916 and what makes it fantastic – the lovely single-sided swingarm, designed to speed up wheel changes during races, for example. Or the underseat exhausts that cleaned aesthetic lines, but also aerodynamic flow. Forget all that for a moment. Today we’re featuring a very special version of this classic – the Ducati 916 Senna. Built as a fund-raiser for the late Ayrton Senna’s namesake foundation, Ducati took just under 1,000 of their standard 916 two-seaters (known as the biposto), and added carbon fiber in a few choice places – like the 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 multiple Senna decals. It is one of the rarest 916s ever made.

Ayrton Senna was a personal friend of the Castiglioni family (partially, no doubt, because he was a repeat high-profile Ducati customer), and personally agreed to the first run 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) and SP chassis (Öhlins shock, cast-iron, fully-floating Brembo discs and braided brake hoses).

This example (VIN: ZDM916S2*000317*) is number 75 of 300 from the first (of three) series’ of production.

The VIN and production number have been verified with Ducati.” The seller acquired it two years ago from a private party in Denmark in 2019. “He didn’t get to ride it enough, and didn’t wanna spend money on a full service with belts, tyres etc. when he didn’t ride it. He bought it in 2014 from another Danish guy that had imported it from the UK, as far as I know. Hence all the UK receipts.”

The odometer shows 9,356 kilometers (5,814 miles).

Modifications:
The seller estimates that there is over $13,000 in performance upgrades fitted to this 916 Senna. “The bike really performs awesome – a lot better than a normal 916!” When the bike had ~2,000km on it, the bike had a new 996 SPS engine installed. This swap was done by the original owner.

Marvic magnesium wheels, coated in OEM Senna red (pictures doesn’t really do the color justice – It is the correct color when seen in real life though!)

Cosmetic Blemishes:
The seller notes “a couple of dings on the fork outer legs, small cracks on fairing, hazing on rev meter, small marks on frame. It’s a really nice bike and the cosmetic issues are very small for a bike that has been ridden.”




It is riding on new Bridgestone Battlax BT016 tires. The seller is a motorcycle mechanic with extensive Ducati experience. He recently replaced the belts (OEM Ducati), fuel filter, and the oil/filter. He states that there are no known mechanical issues.
