Update 6.6.2014: The seller has alerted me that this bike is now sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc
If you're a collector that has been holding out for a nearly new DD16, your wait is over. This example has just 8 miles and has been kept indoors it's whole life. Just in case this is your first introduction to this legendary offering, it's as close as you're going to get to a modern, street legal, MotoGP bike. 377 pounds dry and 197hp from it's V4 propel this collectible to 190mph! I've seen only a handful of these on the street and even at an event like the Indy MotoGP stop, they are show stoppers wherever they turn up even several years later.
Thank you to Joel for helping to support the site with a Featured Listing and good luck with the sale!
from the seller:
I am the 2nd owner of the bike and have recently acquired it. The original owner had it stored inside his home as do I now. The bike only has 8 miles from the initial set up of the bike by a certified DD16 mechanic. The bike is in 100% perfect collector condition. I am asking MSRP which is $72K and will accept trade plus cash offers on a Desmosedici with miles. These bikes are getting harder and harder to find in this condition with such low mileage. I have been searching for over 3 years and this is the lowest mileage Desmosidici I've come across. The original owner had over $90K invested in the bike. If the bike does not sell within a month I will put it on eBay but am in no rush to sell.
Bike includes the Full Titanium Termignoni $10K exhaust as well as the Ducati Performance Carbon Fiber rear hugger. Both factory exhaust systems, ECU's and factory fairings are all included in perfect condition as well. Both keys, the factory rear stand and the manual is included.
