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: ZDM1SB3R62B010404. The seller acquired it a year ago from a local Ducati enthusiast that he knew through his work.

During his ownership, the seller has covered roughly 500 miles. The odometer shows 10,418 miles.

Per the seller, this “obviously started life as a biposto and had a mono tail added. I do not have the original, but everything else is there.”

Marchesini wheels.

Tank protector, Sargent seat.

HID lights, tinted windscreen.

Carbon fiber chain guard, carbon fiber rear hugger.

Faux carbon fiber wrap on shock remote reservoir and heel guards.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
It is a clean honest bike. Nothing glaring. Extremely clean – the pictures are accurate and do not make the bike out to be something it isn’t.”

It is riding on Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires from 2020.

The seller states that there are no known mechanical issues. During his ownership, he has flushed the fluids. The seller has a summary of maintenance work performed since 2014:

Currently located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, this Ducati is offered on a clean Pennsylvania title.
