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. For the 2000 model year, the 996 also got Marchesini 5-spoke wheels and titanium nitride-coated forks.
The seller of this example (VIN: ZDM1SB5T6YB008153) acquired it six years ago from a private seller.
He has put 500 miles on it, and the odometer now shows 14,267 miles.
Recent maintenance includes a $758 service by Forster Ducati in February of 2019 – it included new timing belts, checks of the rocker arms and valve clearances, oil/filter change, fuel injection trim, setting of the throttle bypass screws and idle, replacement of the air filter, valve cover gaskets, and rear lamp rubber mount, as well as a general check-over. The motorcycle had 14,266 miles at the time.
This bike left the factory as a biposto, but it now has a OEM Ducati monoposto seat/tail. Therefore, the tail has a different VIN on it.
Per the seller, there are no mechanical issues. Cosmetically, he notes light scratches on the right side of the front fairing.
It appears that the bike was resprayed before the seller’s ownership. The “996” decals on the side fairings were removed as they were incorrect, and the “Ducati” logos on the tank do not look to be correct, either.
Per the seller, “I bought it as is and it had never been dropped or crashed. I checked the bike and there were no signs of damage. I also checked the rear tail at the time of purchase and found it was OEM, so I purchased the bike. I have since removed the side fairings and verified they are OEM as well. Beyond that I have no information as to why the incorrect decals were put on the bike without clearcoat.”
The seller is letting it go as he no longer rides it and wants to add something new to his collection. There are no mechanical issues to note – this 996 is ready to ride!
