Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2000 Ducati 996 SPS. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Designed to be the ultimate 996 at the time, the SPS (Sport Production Special) is an incredible combination of performance and beauty. The limited edition SPS was an uprated version that featured a modified engine and chassis. Nearly all the specifications were improved such as the lighter Marchesini 5-spoke wheels…

…and Ohlins rear shock.

In 2000, Ducati upgraded the Showa forks to Ohlins units, as well.

Engine work included titanium connecting rods, upgraded cams, and a lightened crankshaft. The SPS also got a bigger generator and Termignoni pipes. All this was good for an additional 12 horsepower, and the modified chassis made the whole package that much sweeter. Technically, you weren’t supposed to enjoy said package on the street – the SPS was only road legal in Europe. Ducati didn’t conform to EPA regulations, so they sold it as a ‘track-only’ bike and made buyers sign a waiver saying that you wouldn’t register it for road use. As you might imagine, pretty much everyone ignored the waiver, as the bike came with a VIN, lights, a title, and everything needed to register the bike.

This example (VIN: ZDM3SB5V9YB003216) is 996 SPS #1496. The seller acquired it from a private party in New York in 2007.

During his 14 years of ownership, the seller has covered roughly 2,000 miles. The odometer shows 15,710 miles.

Arrow exhaust.

Fast by Ferracci gas cap.

Tank protector.

Yoyodyne clutch slave cylinder.

Maintenance History:
2007-2016: “Regular maintenance done at Ducati Manhattan by “Country” Joe, often replacing oil at 1,000 mile intervals and generally over babying.”
2016-present: “Regular maintenance done by John French in Los Angeles. Most recently all by John French:
new OEM starter motor, new Yuasa AGM battery, starter gasket, sealer and other incidentals, starter relay OEM, starter cable kit (2017), new OEM alternator and OEM clutch (new OEM clutch parts including new alloy basket, alloy plate set, large clutch seal, small clutch seal, pushrod seal, 6x springs) (2018), genuine Ohlins fork seal set (both sides), 1 liter 1309-01 Ohlins fork oil, pair of OEM timing belts (2020)”

The seller states that there are no known mechanical issues. In preparation for the listing, he had us clean the starter switch contacts.

It is riding on Michelin Pilot Power 2 CT tires from 2008.

The sale includes two keys.

When asked why he’s selling it, the seller said, “It’s a good question. I must be crazy as is the most visceral machine I have ever been lucky enough to pilot. It just does not get used the way it should and needs an amazing home where it will be taken out regularly to do battle!

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Ducati is offered on a clean New York title. Have any 996 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the “Comments” tab!
