Delightful Ducati ST4 916 in Ducati Giallo, 2000 W Reg

3 owners from new with the previous owner retaining it for the last 9 years, and a very low mileage of 12000 miles. A huge and extensive amount of service history is present, including it’s original stamped service book, numerous service bills/invoices from throughout the bike’s entire life, and every old MOT from new. Just had timing belts, spark plugs and Shell Advance Ultra 10w/40 fully synthetic lube service. Clear HPI report. All books/keys/documents present

The ST4 was Ducati’s then take on the sports touring market, but with a distinct nod towards the sporting element. Aimed at rivals such as Honda’s VFR800 and Triumph’s Sprint ST, it utilised the 4v liquid cooled Desmoquattro from the 916 Superbike, tweaked with a slightly heavier crank to offer a little more smoothness and low down torque. Power was quoted at 105bhp and 69 lb/ft, good figures, and these bikes offer properly decent performance with a top speed of 155mph and a standing quarter in the 11s bracket

Along with the charismatic big 90 degree V-Twin, the mechanical specification includes ‘Gold’ Brembo calipers with 320mm diameter discs, USD 43mm fully adjustable Showa forks, Showa GD082 adjustable monoshock rear suspension and Marelli engine management. It all makes for a machine where fast progress can be made in an enjoyable fashion. An ever useful centre stand is fitted along with an Optimate battery charger lead

This particular bike is exceptionally clean and original, we would say unequivocably one of the very best that will be found. Totally standard other than for the fitment of  a taller smoked screen and an Oberon clutch slave cylinder. With just 3 owners from new, only 12000 miles, and with a quite amazingly detailed history, it is far from easy to find examples such as this nowadays. With timing belts just completed, along with spark plugs and high quality synthetic oil it needs nothing at all. A quite superb bike and a true credit to it’s keepers
