FS: 2005 Ducati ST3 – ZDM1TBBS95B003436 – 15,183 miles – $5899.00
This fantastic Ducati Sport Touring ST3 is a hard to find version this nice. This particular bike was purchased locally and has only had one loving owner. 12K major service was performed by us here at SUB in 2013, new tires put on in 2014. We have just run this one through service again to give it look over and it all checked out perfect! No tip over signs, no damage. All manuals, keys (including red key), code card, tools and service history included. The factory supplied U-Lock is still in place under the seat! Other than a dark taller windshield (stock one included) and billet reservoirs covers its all original. Come grab this one quick!
Here’s what the press said about this model;
Ducati didn’t achieve fame through making sport-touring motorcycles but this doesn’t mean it can’t make good sport-touring bikes and the ST3 is testament to this. The previous ST2 was okay, but didn’t drag Honda VFR owners through showroom doors looking for something better. But the ST3 did just that.
Ducati started afresh with the ST3 starting at the core with a new 90-degree V-twin air-cooled engine that was tractable, smooth and had a delicious spread of midrange drive. Ducati figured that most sport-touring riders simply wanted overtaking power without the need to rev an engine to get it. Ducati gave the ST3 exactly this, almost by accident when it designed a new three-valve cylinder head and improved the fuel injection to meet new emissions regulations.
The end result was indeed overtaking power bang in the middle of the rev range. This meant that there wasn’t any real need to change down the gearbox but simply roll up to corners, tip in and then open the throttle. In effect a less tiring approach in getting to your destination. In a word: perfect.
Because an ST3 rider doesn’t need to “rag it” with a flurry of upper rpm gear changes, fuel consumption can stretch to 52mpg with just the rider onboard making use of sunny Sunday afternoons. However, the ST3 was designed primarily to lug rider and pillion in a fast and comfortable and it does this with aplomb.
