Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1997 Ducati 916. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The 916 truly needs no introduction, but we’ll defer to VisorDown for our favorite summation:

“Every once in a while a true classic comes along: James Joyce’s Ulysses, The Beatles’ Revolver, Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs. Greats one-and-all, to be seen, owned or understood by the discerning and devoted. To the list of timeless classics, we can add Massimo Tamburini’s Ducati 916.”

“Never had a motorcycle provoked such feelings of pure lust or been so coveted. Here was sex made metal, a Sophia Loren in cro-mo steel and alloy. Slim and curvy, the 916 took the breath away from any angle and redefined how a motorcycle could, and should, look.”

“And it wasn’t just skin deep. The four valves per cylinder desmodromic V-twin measured 916cc and produced 114 crankshaft horsepower, with torque from tickover.”

This example is VIN: ZDM1SB8S0VB008244. The seller acquired the bike eight years ago from a private party.

The odometer shows 31,222 miles. Please note: The seller states the odometer does not currently work as the cable is not compatible with the aftermarket forks. True mileage is unknown.
