The Ducati 916 launched in 1994 and very simply put blew the world away. At that time, the prettiest (arguably remaining to this day) most focussed, beatifully designed motorcycle there had ever been, and a significant game changer on all levels. The 996 arrived in 1999 and built upon the 916’s credentials, in particular with regard to an improved, stronger engine with better lubrication and cooling. If ever a bike series was destined to become a future classic, well, this was it, and 26 years after it’s launch, any 916/996/998 Ducati, from a Biposto, to an SPS, to an R, remains a thing of beauty, and hugely desirable

This particular bike is relatively price range in today’s terms, with the more exotic versions commanding very significant prices. Being a 2000 model year it has a grey frame and benefits from the 5 spoke Marchesin rims that were introduced that year. It’s very presentable. It’s not a show bike, but it is clean, and very pretty, and will compare well to others at what is now entry level money for these bikes.  Essentially an original, and standard bike, it has modified de-baffled open pipes which sound superb (NOTE. Not Termignonis, stickers only) a carbon fibre exhaust heat shield, tinted screen and polished top yoke

The standard mechanical specification included fully adjustable Showa 43mm dia. BPF front suspension, fully adjustable Showa rear suspension, Gold Brembo 4 piston calipers, 320mm dia. front brake discs, steering damper, quick release fairings and body panels, and a dry clutch (of course !)

Totally fit and healthy, an excellent bike, it sounds great and goes well. All in all a very nice and enjoyable 996 that should prove to be a reasonable long term investment
