This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 2001 Ducati 996S shows just 463 miles and is one of approximately 500 examples produced. It was recently acquired by the selling dealer from the original owner and is powered by a 996cc 8-valve V-twin mated to a 6-speed transmission. Created primarily for use on the track, the 996S model features Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, and other performance-oriented equipment as described below. This example has been modified with a carbon fiber exhaust, air box, and fenders, while a 2011 service included new timing belts, a coolant flush, installing an upgraded radiator hose, and more. The bike is now being offered with a wheel stand and a clean New Jersey title. The 996S was a customer version of Ducati’s World Superbike Championship motorcycle and features a monoposto seat, Showa forks, Brembo brakes with 4-piston calipers, and an adjustable Ohlins suspension. This example wears several sponsorship decals and the turn signals have been removed. A carbon fiber air box and fenders have been added. The seller reports that the bike has been garage kept and shows no signs of ever being dropped. Aftermarket frame sliders and an Arrow carbon fiber exhaust have been fitted, and the Marchesini 5-spoke alloy wheels wear Michelin tires. The rear wheel stand will be included. Controls and instrumentation are shown up close in the gallery below, with the odometer indicating just 463 miles. The liquid-cooled 996cc V-twin features four desmodromic valves per cylinder and is paired with a 6-speed transmission. A May 2011 service at 205 miles was carried out by Trackside Motorsport of Jersey City, New Jersey. Work totaled just under $1,300 as shown in the gallery and included replacement of the timing belts, a coolant flush, fitting an upgraded silicon radiator hose, checking the valves, and installing a performance air filter.
