The 916 truly needs no introduction, but we’ll defer to VisorDown for our favorite summation:

“Every once in a while a true classic comes along: James Joyce’s Ulysses, The Beatles’ Revolver, Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs. Greats one-and-all, to be seen, owned or understood by the discerning and devoted. To the list of timeless classics, we can add Massimo Tamburini’s Ducati 916.”

“Never had a motorcycle provoked such feelings of pure lust or been so coveted. Here was sex made metal, a Sophia Loren in cro-mo steel and alloy. Slim and curvy, the 916 took the breath away from any angle and redefined how a motorcycle could, and should, look.”

“And it wasn’t just skin deep. The four valves per cylinder desmodromic V-twin measured 916cc and produced 114 crankshaft horsepower, with torque from tickover.”

This example is engine #: RB81003426. This page shows that RB8 corresponds to a fuel injected S4/916 motor. We are unable to confirm the year of production – if you know how to, please let us know!

Maintenance:
In preparation for the listing, the seller had us perform a compression and leak down test. The results are as follows:

Vertical Cylinder: 215psi @ 4% rings
Horizontal Cylinder: 195psi @ 4% rings

Notes:

– Broken spring in the clutch basket
– Bent bracket on left side
