Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2000 Ducati 748. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

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: ZDM1SB3R6YB011805.

The odometer shows 12,118 miles.

This bike came to us with plans for a restoration but the seller has decided he just wants to move on. It starts and runs but our shop notes some things that need to be addressed if the next owner would like to ride it:

All fluids need replacing.

The headlight lens is fogged and the front left turn signal is not illuminating.

The chain guard is missing; the brake line is improperly routed (normally secured to the chain guard) and should be secured to a replacement.

The chain is rusty.

Both chain sliders are missing and the left rear axle nut is missing its lock wire.

The exhaust hanger is damaged.

Modifications:
Arrow exhaust.

Tinted windscreen, aftermarket turn signals.

Carbon fiber front fender.

Vortex gas cap.

SpeedyMoto open clutch cover.

Pro Grip tank protector.

Pro Grip grips.

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 Michelin Pilot Power and Bridgestone Battlax tires with date codes of 3809 and 4615, respectively.

The sale includes one key.
