Hi Guys,

I'm seriously considering selling my 2000 748..
It has 11,700 miles, and had the 12K service done by the previous owner at around 11K miles (and had a few rockers replaced).

It comes with a ton of upgrades:
- OHLINS adjustable Steering Damper
- OHLINS Rear Shock
- Marchesini Forged Aluminum Wheels (metallic gray)
- Vesrah RJL Brake Pads
- Frame Sliders (no holes in OEM bodywork)
- Termignoni Carbon Fiber Exhaust Half System (spare mid pipe)
- FIM chip for half system
- Acculign adjustable Rear Sets ($350+)
- Mad Duc Reverse Shift (GP Shift) + acculign std. shift linkage
- Hotbodies Track Body Work with tall windscreen
- Recent Valve Service with new rocker arms and Kevlar drive belts (performed by GP Motorcycles San Diego)
- FBF Bar Risers
- BMC Air Filters ($220)
- AFAM Quick Change Rear Sprocket Carrier with 2 Sprockets
- Rear Single Side Swingarm Stand
- Evoluzione clutch slave cylinder
- Evoluzione license plate bracket/turn signal eliminator
- Michelin Pilot Power wheels
- New billet clutch cover
- Billet brake reservoir cover
- Desmo Times New style battery mod
- Front number plate (decal)
- motowheels sprocket cover
- Brembo 748s snowflake semi-floating rotors
- DZUS QR fasteners
- Carbon Fiber tank protector
- Carbon fiber dash
- Biposto tail (correct for 748) and pegs
- Monoposto tail with white number plates
- New seat covers for Biposto tail
-Ducati R model slipper clutch (includes stock clutch)

And a bunch of spares- stock wheels, spare fasteners, old OEM parts, and more!


I'm asking $7900 for EVERYTHING.
I can pretty easily truck the spares anyewhere within So Cal, but you will probably have to pick the bike up- I have a camper shell and no loading ramp.

If I don't sell the bike as it is in the next week, I will remove all the aftermarket parts and knock the price down to around $5500-5000 for a quick sale. I can easily make up the difference selling the rest of the parts on ebay. It really is a much better deal with the upgrades, and it's demoralizing to tear down a beautiful project..

nice bike.

i myself think the 916/996/748 series Ducati's are best looking bikes of all time. nothing before it or after has been more appealing to the eyes.

still for sale?

That IS a nice bike with tons of goodies!
I'm looking for a Ducati track bike at the moment.. Just dont have the heart to tear such a nice one up :)

Would this still be for sale?

Long gone- Surprisingly I had no takers- so I split the thing up, sold as stock, and got $5000 for the bike and a bit over $5000 for the goodies :O

That was one sick ride....RIP....

I did miss it, until I got my new ride!

Curious.....why a Yamaha over the Ducati?

08-31-2007, 7:07 PM
The R1 was definitley a better choice!Now you can ride it hard and dont have to worry about the expensive services and the fact that the R1 is one of the fastest, best handling bikes out there.Now you just need to buy a turbo kit for it.I had one on my Gixxer 1100 and there definitley worth the $$$.:chris:

08-31-2007, 9:05 PM
Dang Dave, that R1 is wicked!

Turbo, turbo!

HA.. The bike weighs 500 lbs and has 180 HP.. What a dog, you're really gona need to pump it up a bit..

08-31-2007, 10:20 PM
500lbs- what on earth are you talking about? You need to do some reading. It is 381lbs from the factory, and R1 forum members have out-accelerated Hayabusas to 170 (I won't try it myself). Mine's probably under 380 now, but I've never weighed it. The 748 was heavier. AFAIK, there isn't a lighter liter bike on the market, at least not by more than 10lbs.

A turbo would be cool, but I don't think I need much more power- it has slip ons, velocity stacks, and power commander already. The carbon fiber wheels actually made a huge difference, in accel, braking, AND handling most of all. The fun of a sport bike is in cornering- if you want to be the fastest kid on the block, buy a busa and turbo it!

I may track my bike sometime- a turbo would be a good way to get killed :D Also, no one makes an off the shelf kit YET... but someone's currently working on a bolt-on supercharger. Might be more predictable anyhow.


PS- if I had a 998 Duc, I might've kept it, the 748 was a bit slow. I love the 50th anniv. paint job on the Yamaha though (Remember Kenny Roberts?), if not for the paint scheme, it may have been an 07 GSXR1000.
