Description

Click here for a VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 2005 Ducati 749 Dark. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Like its bigger, more powerful sibling — the 999 — the Ducati 749 was characterized by its distinctive (read: divisive) styling. Penned by Pierre Terblanche, it featured a set of stacked headlights and beefy slab-sided fairing panels that made for a marked departure from its predecessor: the much-adored and ever-classic 748.

Looks aside, the 749 was certainly no slouch from a performance standpoint. It employed many of the same parts as the 999, and even the base model wasn’t that far off from the claimed figures of the previous 916. Of course, the smaller engine couldn’t match the output of its bigger brother, but the middleweight Ducati offered a satisfying high-revving riding experience with a characteristically Italian soundtrack. Basic specs were 108hp, 59.2lb-ft of torque, and a dry weight just a touch over 400lbs.

As with many of its other models, Ducati released a “Dark” version differentiated by its black and grey bodywork and smooth satin finish.

This example is VIN: ZDM1UB3S95B010267. The seller acquired the bike two years ago from a private party.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 1,500 miles. The odometer shows 14,249 miles.

Maintenance:
The seller states that he had “a full inspection at Moto Forza, during which time they checked the valves and confirmed that they were all within spec. Additionally, they replacedthe valve cover gaskets and belts and installed Michelin Power GP tires. After the service, the seller drained the coolant and replaced it with Engine Ice. In preparation for the sale, [he] replaced the battery, flushed and bled the brake and clutch systems, replaced the oil and oil filter, installed new HH brake pads.” He notes that he has “ridden one Palomar Mountain trip to bed them in.”
