Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1999 Ducati 996. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
Replacing the legendary 916, the 996 was Ducati’s flagship superbike from 1999-2002. The gorgeous Tamburini-designed aesthetics remained, but upgrades like like larger pistons and valves, a stronger crankshaft, lighter wheels, and better brakes all combined for an improved riding experience.
This is the second time we’ve seen this bike recently, as the seller of this example (VIN: ZDM1SB5T2XB001344) acquired it from Iconic two years ago. He is only letting it go now as the riding position is too hard on his back.
It was serviced approximately 300 miles ago with a new fuel pump, pressure regulator, all in-tank fuel hoses, aluminum radiator, timing belts, front and rear sprockets, and chain. In addition, the clutch and brake hydraulic systems were flushed.
“The bike was repainted with a ceramic clear coat, however the painter moved to another shop before he could color sand and polish. But it still looks good.” Our White Glove service can have the color sand and polish done if the new owner desires it, or they can simply enjoy it as is.
The seller sums up his bike by saying, “if you ever wanted a Tamburini-designed bike that you wouldn’t feel guilty riding, this is the one.” Have any questions? Let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to get them answered for you!
