Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2000 Ducati 748. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Though it was originally introduced in 1994, the Ducati 748 didn’t come to the United States until 1997. That means we already knew what our European colleagues thought of it in advance – and the reviews were glowing. It was almost identical to the 916, sharing everything from styling to even the majority of the bottom end of the engine. The main differences were a narrower rear tire (180 vs 190) and different cylinders/heads. As the pistons were smaller and traveled a shorter distance, Ducati was able to raise the redline to 11,500 rpm. This resulted in 95 horsepower and a power delivery that thrived on revs as opposed to the lazier, torquier nature of the 916.

The slight sacrifice in peak horsepower paid off in even better handling thanks to the reduced weight, and Ducati’s signature trellis frame was complemented by Showa forks, Sachs shock, and Brembo calipers clamping down on 320mm twin discs up front.

This example is VIN: ZDM1SB3R4YB011947. The seller is the original owner, he bought it new from Wilson’s Motorcycles in February of 2000. “I was age 61 when I bought the Ducati and am a mature rider: no wheelies, no street racing, no track time. The bike has always been garaged.”

The odometer shows 29,527 miles.
