Description

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.”

Manufactured in December of 1996, this example is VIN: ZDM1SB8S7VB009049. The seller inherited this motorcycle from their father, who purchased this example 26 years ago.

The odometer shows 7,339 miles.

Please note: The seller states the DMV incorrectly submitted the mileage on this motorcycle during the transfer, and have since remedied the issue. This reflects in the CycleVIN report for this example.

Maintenance:
The seller states they had this motorcycle serviced in 2018, which included replacing various aged parts, changing the oil, flushing the coolant, and replacing the spark plugs. The seller has included documentation of this work.

Custom-made exhaust.

Monoposto kit.

Yoyodyne clutch slave.

Inside of the tank:
