This 2005 Ducati 999R is one of a limited number built to meet homologation requirements for the AMA and Superbike World Championship series. These were the range-topping version of the 999 lineup and carried an MSRP of $29,995 when new. This example was reportedly used a press bike before being sold through SoCal Ducati in Brea, California and then imported to Canada about six years later. Power is from a 999cc Testastretta L-twin paired with a 6-speed gearbox and an STM slipper clutch. Equipment includes a mix of factory and aftermarket performance components, including carbon bodywork, Öhlins suspension, BST carbon fiber wheels, a Termignoni titanium exhaust, Brembo 1098S brakes, and more as outlined below. Approximately 1,500 of the 15k indicated kilometers have been added by the seller since he purchased the bike in 2014. This 999R is now offered with removed stock parts and a clean Alberta registration.
Finished in red over a matching trellis frame, the R model received a few subtle styling changes over the base 999 and 999S. Number plates are integrated into the tail section, and the side panels feature “see-through” badges, exposing the fairing’s carbon weave. A larger 18-liter 749R fuel tank has been installed by the seller to increase range, though the original tank accompanies the sale.
A threaded titanium filler and cap were sourced from Ducati Performance, along with the adjustable rearview mirrors. Paintwork was performed on the lower section of the left-side fairing panel to repair some cracking near the kickstand recess. A 3M protective film has been applied to the nose and side fairings.
Aftermarket BST 5-spoke carbon fiber wheels are wrapped in Pirelli rubber, and the included factory Marchesini wheels can be viewed in the gallery below. Upgrades to the Brembo brake system include 1098S calipers, which are plumbed to a radial master cylinder with a set of Galfer stainless hoses. The R received an Öhlins fork, rear shock, and steering damper from the factory.
A double-bubble windscreen has been installed in addition to a Sargent saddle and titanium rear sets. A CNC-machined top triple clamp from Speedy Moto is also mounted along with HeliBars. Instrumentation includes an 11k-rpm tachometer, with a multifunction display positioned below. 15,400 kilometers (~9,600 miles) are currently shown.
The 999R’s Testastretta 90-degree L-twin is a considerable departure from the base model, and displaces a true 999cc with an over-square 104mm bore and 58.8mm stroke. Output for the 2005 model year was 150 horsepower and 80 lb-ft of torque in stock trim. Various revisions were implemented by the factory, including the use of a sand-cast engine case, and titanium for the valves and connecting rods.
A 57mm Termignoni titanium exhaust system has been added, along with an STM slipper clutch assembly. The last reported major service was performed in 2014 and included a tune-up, valve adjustment, and timing belt change. Motul oil has been used for biannual oil changes during the seller’s ownership.
