MODEL SUMMARY.

WOW ! Truly delightful Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 in Orange Crush. 2019 19 Reg

1 owner and just 1900 miles from new, with it’s original service book, and all books/documents/keys present. In all but new condition

These Inteceptor 650s were a huge step for Royal Enfield in that they moved away from a single cylinder motor to a bigger capacity parallel twin. The motor offers Bosch Electronic Fuel Injection (EFi) with a single piece forged crankshaft and 270 degree firing order. The resultant 47 bhp ensures ample performance with a top speed of around 100 mph, whilst always emitting a suitably traditional exhaust rasp

The styling is right out of the ’60s, very retro and utterly convincing with a teardrop style fuel tank, steel tube double cradle frame, laced wire spoked rims and twin rear coilover shocks. It all looks superb

Modern concessions are ABS braking, digital engine electronics and a 6 speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch

These bikes offer an extremely fine way to cruise about on a lovely summers day. A fabulous old skool roadster, reminiscent of a previous age. Very stylish, and will always raise smiles from onlookers thanks to it’s period look and character

So if you are looking for one of these, to perhaps relive your youth, or just to enjoy, then this bike is about as good as it gets and benefits from the balance of it’s manufacturers warranty

MODEL SUMMARY.

Glorious 2009 58 Reg. Ducati 1098R in Ducati Corse Red/White with lightweight Gold forged Marchesini rims

These are a very special true ‘homologation’ bike, built in limited numbers solely to enable Ducati to go racing in World Superbikes (WSB) and various national championships with their larger 1198cc motor, which is an absolute masterpiece. Developing 186bhp / 99 lb/ft, when fitted with the optional full Termignoni Race exhaust system, and Racing Evo ECU, the ultimate incarnation of the ‘ Testastretta Evoluzione’ features sand cast crankcases, bigger titanium valves coated in chrome nitride (CrN) titanium con rods, super finished low friction rocker arms, magnesium cam covers and Ducati Performance slipper clutch. All in all the 1098R offered 26bhp and 10 lb/ft torque in excess of the ‘standard’ 1098, and with it’s greatly enhanced specification discussed below, had essentially the greatest differentiation between it and it’s lesser brethren than all of the other homologation ‘R’ models. That truly marks this highly exotic model out. As standard, and as in the case with this particular bike, the bikes had slip on Carbon Termignoni exhausts along with the Racing ECU fitted, and power was quoted at 180bhp. Also provided was an original ‘standard’ exhaust system

This particular bike is totally standard and as it left the Ducati factory, other than for a Ducati Corse open clutch cover with Ducati Performance anodised pressure plate, and Ducati Corse carbon effect tank pad. Built in 2008 it pre-dates some of the other variants such as the Bayliss model, and differs in that all 08 model year bikes were hand built whereas others weren’t. It was originally supplied by Ducati Ireland when new, and first registered February 2009, and has full and known ownership provenance having had 3 owners from new, with the last owner retaining it for the last 6 years. 10000 miles with documented history including it’s stamped original service book and service bills invoices. Just had new Ducati o.e timing belts and NGK MAR10A-J spark plugs, fresh Shell Advance Ultra fully synthetic oil service, new Ducati Performance air filter and and new K-tech fork seals with Silkolene PRO RSF 7.5w fluid. Excellent matching Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SPs fitted. All owner’s manuals/handbooks. All keys including keycode card and number tag. We also have the original exhaust system. Purchased by us directly from the previous owner, it has recently been registered onto an appropriate 2009 UK plate

The specification is huge and includes the magnificent motor discussed above, with a trellis frame in Red constructed from ALS450 alloy, monoposto aluminium alloy rear sub frame, eccentric headstock with adjustable rake angle, gold forged/machined lightweight Marchesini ‘Y’ shaped wheels, Race kit  Termignoni exhaust system with dedicated Race ECU, 8 way adjustable traction control controlled by Race ECU, fully adjustable 43mm dia. Ohlins forks, fully adjustable TTX twin tube Ohlins rear shock, fully adjustable Ohlins steering damper, Brembo Monobloc M4 calipers with 330mm dia. front discs, single sided swingarm finished in satin black, DDA – Ducati Data Analyser, Moto GP derived LCD instruments, stopwatch and lap timer, adjustable levers with Brembo radial master cylinders and remote reservoirs, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre race seat unit, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre belly pan, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre tank lower side panels, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre infill panels, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre ignition shroud, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre cam covers. Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre front hugger, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre rear hugger and Ducati Electronic Engine Immobiliser

All in all, a truly beautiful, and wondrous machine, and in our view the best colour to have a Ducati homologation model, that being Ducati Rosso with a small Tricolore on it’s nose. The most special of all the trellis framed homologation specials produced by Ducati, and of course the last, with the 2010 1198R being essentially mechanically identical

MODEL SUMMARY.

WOW ! Simply beautiful Ducati 1199 Panigale Tricolore S in Tricolore colours of Ducati Rosso Anniversario, Green and White. 2013 13 Reg. A little piece of Italian exotica.

4000 miles with full and up to date documented service history including it’s original stamped service book, previous bills of sale, service bills/invoices and old MOTs. Recent Shell Advance Ultra fully synthetic lube service and new Yuasa battery, and has excellent matching Pirelli Diablo Rosso Supercorsa SPs fitted. All books/history/documents/keys present. New MOT provided at point of sale

An utterly glorious machine, the 1199 Panigale launched in 2012 and shared virtually nothing in common with it’s forebear, the 1198. Most significantly, it was frameless, using it’s engine and airbox as it’s chassis where the engine itself acts as a stressed member.

The 1199 Tricolore S was the ultimate incarnation at launch, the third of three models which included the ‘1199’, the ‘1199 S’ and the ‘1199 Tricolore S’. List price when new in 2012  was £23495 and the model was produced in limited numbers. As such, these bikes are comparatively rare, and have a distinct future collectability.

Bristling with high technological electronic and mechanical componentry the specification includes Termignoni ‘Racing’ exhausts with factory ECU up-map, Ohlins NIX30 43mm dia. TiN coated forks with electronic compression and rebound adjustment, Ohlins TTX36 monoshock with electronic compression and rebound adjustment, and adjustable linkage, Ohlins fully adjustable steering damper, Brembo Monobloc M50 radial calipers, 330mm dia. floating discs and radial master cylinder, Marchesini forged light alloy wheels, DDA – Ducati Data Analyser, ABS – Bosch 3-level Electronic Antilock Braking System, DTC – Ducati Traction Control, EBC – Engine Braking Control, DQS – Ducati Quickshifter, RbW – Ride by Wire throttle control, Switchable engine maps – Rain, Sport, Wet, Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre front hugger, MOTO GP derived LCD instruments and Ducati engine immobiliser.

This bike is completely stock, standard, original and as it left the Borgo Panigale factory, other than for a a very smart, and comfortable Ducati Performance suede ‘alcantara’ seat, Carbon fibre effect top yoke protector, Carbon fibre rear shock absorber cover/protector, R&G tail tidy and ever useful Optimate flylead. It also has a Bike-Trac Tracker fitted

Beautiful bike, in exceptional, original condition, this will be one of the best Tricolores to be found. Sounds and looks awesome, a special machine, with monstrous performance from its 195bhp / 98 lb ft L-Twin Superquadro motor. With it’s low mileage, and comprehensive history, it must surely become ever more desirable as time goes on.

MODEL SUMMARY.

Ducati 996 SPS, no. 1471 in Ducati Rosso Corsa with Grey lightweight Marchesini 5 spoke rims and Ducati Performance white gel numberboard . UK supplied by Ducati franchised dealers M&S Motorcycles of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Registered May 2000 on a ’W’ prefix, this is a final specification bike with Ohlins forks and more subtle graphics.

Just 11700 miles with service history and paperwork, including it’s original service book + all original manuals, service bills/invoices and old MOTs. Will have new timing belts and fresh Shell Ultra advance fully synthetic oil at point of sale. Recent fuel filter, plugs and cooling system flush/refill

The SPS model was the ultimate incarnation of the Desmoquattro motor, just prior to the updated ‘Testastretta’ version that appeared in the 996R. It’s motor was heavily reworked with revised cams, bigger valves and ports, titanium con rods, lighter crankshaft and a carbon fibre airbox. The net result was 123bhp / 73 lb/ft but that only tells half the story. Anyone with an appreciation of these things will instantly notice how quickly the motor responds to the throttle, and with such a hard edged, crisp, note, totally different to it’s lesser brethren. An engineering jewel, and a quite magnificent, highly exotic engine. The transmission utilised a higher primary ratio, thereby ‘shortening’ the gearing.

The specification included the best of everything, the afforementioned carbon fibre airbox, fully adjustable 43mm dia. Ohlins forks, fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock, fully adjustable Ohlins steering damper, Ducati Corse Carbon fibre belly pan / undertray, Ducati Corse Carbon fibre front hugger, Brembo Gold calipers with 320mm dia. front discs, lightweight Marchesini 5 spoke wheels in Grey, single sided swingarm in natural aluminium, 102 db Termignoni exhausts and dedicated ECU,  adjustable levers with Brembo master cylinders and remote reservoirs and Ducati Monoposto seat unit in Red/White.

Additionally this particular bike has some upgrades fitted including a carbon fibre exhaust heat shield, carbon fibre heel plates, carbon fibre swingarm protector, carbon fibre chain guard, a Ducati Corse tank protector, tinted screen, alloy front sprocket cover, open clutch cover with DucaBike anodised pressure plate and spring caps, and adjustable rearsets.

This bike will appeal to any buyer that places great importance on originality, and ownership provenance, two of the most important factors, in our view, when purchasing any collectible car or motorcycle.

A wonderful machine, and one which we have owned personally for a number of years. New MOT provided at point of sale

MODEL SUMMARY.

Ducati 999R, no. 137 in Ducati Rosso Anniversario with Black Forged Marchesini 10 spoke rims. UK supplied by Ducati franchised dealers St.Neots Motorcycles in Cambridge. Registered April 2003 on an ’03’ plate, this is the much rarer ‘early’ type with silver frame and cast swingarm.

Just 8500 miles with extensive history and paperwork including it’s original service book + all original manuals, a previous bill of sale when sold by Snell’s Ducati in Hampshire, service bills/invoices and old MOTs. Sale includes new timing belts, fresh Shell Ultra advance fully synthetic oil and new brake/clutch fluid. Replacement clutch fitted at 5200 miles by Snell’s Ducati in Hampshire, whom also checked the valve clearances at 7200 miles. The bike is well known to Snell’s Ducati, and the greater majority of it’s service history is with them.

The Ducati 999 followed the much loved 916/996/998 Massimo Tamburini designed series. Penned by Pierre Terblanche, it became one of the most successful race bikes every produced by Ducati Corse, winning 3 out of 5 World Superbike titles between 2003 and 2007. 

Any ‘R’ specification Ducati is a bike of huge desirability, the pinnacle of Ducati’s engineering and exclusivity of it’s respective time. With regard to the 999R, each one came with a factory numbered top yoke, no. 137 in this case, and a limited edition alloy plaque and presentation box which is present with all the bike’s documents.

It utilised a revised 999cc motor, previously seen in the earlier 998R, which significantly was higher revving due to it’s shorter stroke, and had stronger engine cases, lightened internals, revised cams and bigger valves. When hooked up to the standard fitment 102db single muffler Termignoni exhaust system itself saving 3kg (7lb) in weight, the motor produced 139bhp and 80 lb/ft. That only tells half the story though. Anyone with an appreciation of these things will instantly notice how quickly the motor responds to the throttle, and with such a hard edged note, totally different to it’s lesser brethren. An engineering jewel, and a quite magnificent, highly exotic engine.

The specification included the best of everything, carbon fibre fairings and body panels, Ducati Corse Carbon fibre front hugger, a magnesium headlight support, fully adjustable 43mm dia. Ohlins forks, fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock, fully adjustable Ohlins steering damper, Brembo radially mounted calipers with 320mm dia. front discs, black Forged lightweight Marchesini 10 spoke wheels, twin sided cast swingarm, the afforementioned 102 db Termignoni exhausts and dedicated ECU, adjustable levers with Brembo radial master cylinders and remote reservoirs and a Ducati Monoposto seat unit in Red/White with factory Mono rear subframe.

Additionally this particular bike has some expensive upgrades fitted including Ducati Corse Carbon fibre rear hugger, Ducati Corse tank protector, Ducati Corse exhaust heat shield, Ducati Corse heel plates, Ducati Corse lightweight alloy QR fuel cap,  Ducati Performance front number board and armourfending, and a Ducati Performance alloy open clutch cover.

MODEL SUMMARY.

Beautiful Ducati 888 Strada Ducati Rosso Corsa (Racing Red) with Brembo 3 spoke light alloy rims in Silver.

Originally registered 28th April 1994 in the Netherlands, it’s long term Dutch owner also had a property in the UK, and so the bike was registered in the UK in 2015 when he eventually sold the bike. The original clocks are present and show 29000 km (18100 miles) with the bike now having MPH clocks fitted and all paperwork to support the overall mileage of 19000 miles. All original certificates of UK registration are also present.

It’s a highly original, essentially standard bike, in genuinely lovely condition. Very bright, and very pretty, and owned by us personally for the last couple of years. We love it, and it will always turn heads at a bike meet as you just don’t see 888s, be it a Strada or an SP5. Becoming very rare, but remaining a very useable classic.

The 888 Strada specification included it’s 100bhp 888cc DOHC 4v per cylinder Desmodromic motor, Weber Marelli IAW Injection and Ignition, Fully adjustable 41mm dia. Showa forks, Fully adjustable Showa rear shock, Brembo 3 spoke light alloy rims, Brembo Gold calipers with fully floating 320mm dia. front discs, 245mm dia. fixed rear disc, Double sided swingarm finished in natural aluminium and Adjustable levers with Brembo master cylinders and remote reservoirs. In Japanese specification terms of the day, it was a very high specification machine, eclipsed only by it’s own more exotic brethren, the SPS, SP4 and SP5.

This particular bike whilst remaining essentially standard does have some nice upgrades fitted including Sil Moto high level performance exhausts with Race Chip (original low level exhausts and chip supplied) Air box mod with K&N filter, Lucas adjustable rearsets, Carbon fibre front hugger, Carbon fibre rear hugger, Carbon fibre heel plates and a Smoked screen

Minimal miles covered since having Ducati o.e Red Kevlar timing belts, valve clearances, spark plugs, fuel filter and air filter cleaned/oiled (K&N) Recent Shell Ultra Advance 10w/40 fully synthetic oil. New battery. As ne Michelin Pilot Powers fitted

All 851/888 variants are becoming an ever more rare sight on our roads, and all have great desirability. This bike is quite lovely and fast becoming a collector’s piece, if indeed it has not already attained that status. A bike to nurture and cherish, but not so precious as to not still ride and enjoy it. Truly lovely bike. New MOT provided at point of sale

MODEL SUMMARY.

Well, what to say ? Utterly magnificent MV Agusta F4 1000R 312, a very special and beautiful motorcycle, but with a very distinct difference to most, if not all on the market worldwide. That being, the bike has covered just 9 miles, has had 1 owner, and is in perfect, pristine, effectively new condition. Untouched, and unmodified in any way shape or form.

This bike was UK supplied by Red Dog Motorcycles of Edenbridge in Kent, well known at the time for providing 2 wheeled Italian exotica, and registered in November 2007 on a ’57’ plate. It’s buyer was a young Yorkshire based entrepreneur whom had just ordered the then new  Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 in Pearlescent White. He wanted an exotic Italian motorcycle in matching Pearlescent White to go with his Lamborghini, and so this bike was bought,  simple as that.

The bike was properly stored, and never ridden. We bought it directly from the original owner with 3 miles recorded, it’s test mileage. It’s effectively brand new. Upon it’s return to East Sussex, we drained the original crankcase oil, filled with fresh Motul 7100 10w/60 fully synthetic, flushed/added fresh fuel, and fitted a new battery. On turning the key, the fuel pump primed instantly, and upon pressing the starter button, the bike fired up and burbled away as if it had been used every single day of it’s life. We wanted to ride it, and so rode a 6 mile round trip to have the bike MOTd. Naturally, it rides as new, quite perfect in every sense. When returned to our workshops, the battery was disconnected, an Optimate charger hooked up, and the bike covered up.

The R 312 was so called because of MV’s claim as to it’s top speed capability, specifically ‘312’ kmh (or 194 mph) That proved a little optimistic with contemporary road tests recording mid 180s. This one is in the bespoke Pearl White and Pastel Black colour scheme with Red and Silver decals. Standard specification included Slipper clutch with EBS (Engine Braking System) Revised close ratio gearbox, Revised suspension calibration, Steel trellis framework with cast aluminium swingarm plates, Single sided swingarm, Lightweight 10 spoke Marchesini rims, Fully adjustable USD 50mm dia. Marzocchi forks, Fully adjustable Sachs rear monoshock, Brembo monobloc silver brake calipers with red lettering, Quick release body panels, seat unit, fuel tank and airbox, Patented 4-2-1-2-4 Arrow quad exhaust system, Removable cassette gearbox, Ferrari influenced motor with radial valves, and LCD/Analogue instruments.

There really is very little else to say. This is a quite possibly unique opportunity to buy a ‘new’ 312 R, one of the world’s most beautiful and exotic motorcycles, this model now many years out of production, and clearly a bike that would sit very nicely in any bike or car collection, at any financial level. A glorious machine, perfect, pristine. Just wonderful.

MODEL SUMMARY.

Glorious Ducati 1098S Tricolore in Ducati Corse Red/White/Green Tricolore colour scheme. 1 of 1031 of these were produced in 2007,  all in the unique Tricolore colour scheme with their trellis frame also in Gold and with Gold forged/machined lightweight Marchesini wheels. Very pretty bikes.

UK supplied, 2007 07 registered and 10000 miles with fully documented Riders, Pro Twins and specialist Ducati history. Timing belts, spark plugs, Shell Advance fully synthetic oil/filter, Ducati o.e air filter, fuel filter, battery replaced 2021. Everything is present including it’s fully stamped original service book, service bills/invoices, old MOTs, all owner’s manuals/handbooks and all keys including keycode card and number tag.

Over and above the unique colour scheme, frame and wheels, these Tricolore models also came as standard with a Ducati Corse Race cowl, and Ducati Corse Carbon Fibre front hugger. More important though was the factory fitted 102dB Termignoni exhaust system with Race ECU, which was an option on the usual 1098S at a cost of around £2000. The Termignonis and ECU added to the ‘standard’ 160bhp / 90 lb/ft developed by the ‘Testastretta Evoluzione’ which, as it’s name would suggest, was an evolution of the ‘Narrow Head’ Testastretta motor seen in earlier 998 and 999 variants (and 996R) and of course added greatly to the aural and visual effects of these machines.

The rest of the spec. came from the more usual 1098S model and included fully adjustable 43mm dia. Ohlins forks, fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock, fully adjustable Ohlins steering damper, Brembo Monobloc calipers with 330mm dia. front discs, single sided swingarm finished in natural aluminium, DDA – Ducati Data Analyser, Moto GP derived LCD instruments incorporating stopwatch and lap timer, and adjustable levers with Brembo radial master cylinders and remote reservoirs

This particular bike also has key desirable options fitted including Ducati Corse carbon fibre rear hugger, Ducati Corse carbon effect tank pad, Ducati Performance anodised clutch pressure plate, Carbon fibre open clutch cover, carbon fibre side infill panels, carbon fibre exhaust heat shield, carbon fibre front sprocket cover, carbon fibre heel plates and a smoked screen. Many of the original parts are also provided.

All in all, a truly beautiful, and wondrous machine, and one of our own personal bikes. New MOT provided at point of sale

This bike really should appeal to any buyer that places great importance on originality, and known ownership provenance, two of the most important factors, in our view, when purchasing any collectible car or motorcycle. It has extensive documented history including it’s original service book, numerous service bills/invoices and numerous old MOTs.  Everything else is present, including all handbooks/manuals/owner’s wallet, and all keys including the number tag.

Will have new timing belts and fresh Shell Ultra advance fully synthetic oil at point of sale. Recent spark plugs. New Michelin Pilot Powers fitted

The Ducati 998 was the last of the Massimo Tamburini designed 916/996/998 lineage and differed greatly from it’s forebears in utilising the then new ‘Testastretta’ motor, literally translated as ‘Narrow Head’ enabling a reduced included angle between the valves, this allowing bigger valves, and necessitating significant re-engineering and re-location of one half of the desmodromic valve gear.

In higher ‘S’ specification, as with our bike here, the motor produced 136 bhp (140 ps) in line with the previous 996 R, which used essentially the same motor, and was significantly up on the previous range topping 996 SPS’s 123 bhp. and the ‘standard’ 998 Testastretta’s (identical) 123bhp. The motor also utilised higher specification materials for the the con rods, valves and pistons, and had a ‘deep sump’ which naturally made for cooler internal crankcase temperatures.

The rest of the ‘S’ enhancements focused on fully adjustable TiN coated Showa forks with a fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock unit, lighter Marchesini rims, and optional (fitted here) full Termignoni exhaust system with accompanying re-map/ECU chip, alongside Gold Brembo 4 piston calipers, 320mm dia. front brake discs, steering damper, quick release fairings and body panels, and an easily replaceable dry clutch (of course)

Many would say that that these bikes are the most focused, beautifully designed motorcycle there has ever been. Whether or not that is the case, if ever a bike was destined to become a future classic, well, this is it, and 27 years after it’s launch, any 916/996/998 Ducati, from a Biposto, to an S/SPS, to an R, remains a thing of beauty, and hugely desirable. This particular bike is truly lovely, and we have owned it personally for a number of years. New MOT provided at point of sale
