Lot 201: Ducati 996 BiPosto

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (16 May 2012)

Like the other Ducati in the sale today, this immaculate 996 BiPosto was destined for a life Down Under. The owner, who emigrated some while ago had not bargained on the degree of Australian red tape when it comes to importing cars and motorcycles, plus the punitive duties levied for the pleasure. Following the decision to sell the machine in the UK, it has been removed from its packing crate. Registered in 2001 it has covered just 8,133 miles from new. An excellent service history shows that it has been well maintained throughout its life, whilst a full deck of MOTs confirm the mileage to be genuine. Fitted with a set of Termignoni carbon cans, Ohlin shocks and a new battery, it received a 1,950 service less than 1,000 miles ago which included new cam belts. It has also had new front callipers and pads and a recent clutch slave cylinder. The vendor has had it chipped and looks to be a superbly presented machine, having only got wet on two occasions in the last 8 years. CATALOGUE AMENDMENT: The vendor has informed us that the exhausts are Termignoni, it has had new front callipers and pads and a new clutch slave cylinder recently. He aslo adds that he has had the engine power chipped.
