The very iconic Ducati 916, have you always had one on you bucket list?

Don’t hesitate with this one, 916’s are getting harder and harder to find.  This particular one has been owned by current owner for the past 10 years, a bike he too had on his bucket list and managed to find a clean one back then.  It is pretty close to original condition with some standard upgrades like carbon rear inner fender, carbon clutch cover and a few items added to improve comfort. Heli-bars, which raise the handlebars slightly, a zero gravity double bubble windscreen and a lovely Sargent seat, these three additions make this bike a decent long distance ride.

Here is a quote from Mick Walker when the 916 came out.

“The really big news for 1994, however, was the arrival of the ground-breaking 916. This machine’s engine size matched its code number and had been achieved by increasing the stroke of the 888 from 64 to 66 mm. … This was the work of Massimo Tamburini, who has been described as one of the greatest motorcycle designers of the late 20th century – and with good cause. … To many enthusiasts around the world, the 916 was not simply the latest superbike, but the best there had ever been. It set new standards of performance, handling, and braking, but also style and charisma. … The 916 changed the face of sports bikes in a way that only the original Suzuki GSX-R750 had managed a decade earlier.”
