FS: 2003 Ducati 749S – ZDM1UB3S13B000636 – 14,739 mi – $3,195.00

This is a good running Ducati 749S, it has had some tip overs here and there and was cosmetically “totaled” by the insurance company.  Current owner purchased it, got all services up to date and repaired the needed parts to get it road legal and ready to ride.    This is a great deal for a good running Ducati 749.  The S model was the uprated model with the good Showa forks and adjustable chassis.  Come check this one out soon, hard to imagine it will stick around for too long at this price.

Here are a couple of press notes;

Cycle World Magazine – Ducati 749S – BEST USED BIKES

BASIC SPECS: Introduced alongside the 999 superbike, the 749S is essentially a 999 with downsized bore and stroke dimensions that yield 748cc of displacement. The 90-degree V-twin, a belt-drive DOHC design with four valves per cylinder, has Ducati’s signature desmodromic valve actuation. The 749S shares many parts with the 999, including a fully adjustable Showa 43mm inverted fork with TiN-coated stanchions and shock with progressive linkage. The tubular steel-trellis frame has an adjustable steering head, which allows a choice of 24.5 or 23.5 degrees of rake, a three-position tank/seat/tail adjust-ment, and five footrest locations.

WHY IT’S DESIRABLE: Ducati’s 749 was produced in a trio of flavors. The Dark version, priced most affordably, had lower-spec suspension and none of the S’s added chassis adjustability. The 749R homologation special featured race-quality Öhlins suspension along with a race engine tune that featured a shorter stroke, a larger bore, and bigger valves for improved high-rpm output. The S hits the sweet spot for sporting street use and club racing, thanks to its broader spread of power and superb chassis stability.

THE COMPETITION: Ducati held the upper hand for mid-displacement V-twin performance over the Buell XB9R, but the usual cast of 600cc Japanese inline-four supersports offered near equivalent perfor-mances at an enticing price. Triumph introduced its Daytona 675 in 2006, giving buyers and race fans yet another alternative in this increasingly crowded category.
