    Default 2005 Ducati 749 Superbike - $7000

    I have another track bike in the works, and if I don't sell this beauty I'm probably going to track her for real as well. Please save this clean Italian beauty from my fairing scuffing, rearset snapping exploits!

    2005 Ducati 749 with 5200 miles. I bought it with 3800 or so miles on it and it must have been gently treated because she still had the original factory rear tire with chicken strips a mile wide on each side.

    I changed all the fluids and put new Diablo Supercorsas on her which still have plenty of life (only a handful of SMRs, battery maintenance commutes, and one novice track day at Harris Hill on them).

    Brandon Bones has done a better job with photos than I could ever do, just ignore the poor form of the rider and imagine yourself at your knee dragging best upon this machine:

    In some of Brando's photos you can see the only real flaw in the bodywork I've noticed (and only after viewing the photos) a small scuff on the left side of the bottom of the fairing.

    It has aftermarket mirrors (I have the original red ones, looks like a minor garage type scratch on the right mirror prompted the prior owner to change).

    I only have one key, and it is a "security" key, so if you lose this one you might be in for some dealer help to reprogram the security system and get a new key.

    Yes, the valves will require adjustment at 7000 miles.

    Clean "free and clear" title in hand. Posting here for the Ducatisti first before I release it to the masses. I hate to sell the bike, and am hoping for a good home for her.

    Reasonable offers considered.

    Wow. That is tempting.

    GLWS, quickly; so I don't give into temptation and then get divorced.

    The Duc's the beauty but the Ninja's the wife right now.

    I need to sell the Duc to help pay for my new baby Ninja 250 and the ZX6R's fancy new Attack rearsets...

    Guess I'm actually going to try and sell this bike. 5400 miles, $6500, and now appearing on Craigslist.
