Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2001 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 larger pistons and valves, a stronger crankshaft, lighter wheels, and better brakes all combined for an improved riding experience.

By 2001, the 996 had been granted lighter 5-spoke Marchesini wheels and an Ohlins shock.

Per Motorcycle News: “Everything about owning this design icon feeds my love for it. I never tire of seeing it in the garage, of the lazy churn as those big pistons pulse into life and that thunderous burst of ignition on start-up.

I love how dense, taut and compact it feels, how at home it is mid-corner, or how its rhythms and sonorous tones get inside your brain. Riding it feels excitingly illicit, like having an affair, without actually being unfaithful. Every ride feels like falling in love again.”

This example is VIN: ZDM1SB5T21B010665. The seller purchased it two months ago from an individual in Texas. He’s listing the bike because he recently acquired a 996S.

During his ownership, the seller has ridden the bike for approximately 10 miles. The odometer shows 17,994 miles.

Some photos show a sticker on the right side of the tail. Per the seller’s request, we have since removed it.

The seller has not performed any maintenance while he has had the bike in his possession. He recommends a full service with a belt replacement, valve adjustment, and a tire swap.

Termignoni exhaust, aftermarket tail tidy.

White headlight bulbs.

Pazzo Racing levers.

Progrip gas cap cover.

Progrip tank protector.

Rear turn signal relocation.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Metzeler Sportec M5 tires with date codes of 0514 and 0614.

The sale includes two keys.
