2-Mile 2004 Ducati 998S Final Edition

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

This 2004 Ducati 998S is a limited-production Final Edition model that has reportedly never been ridden. The bike was removed from the factory crate with 2 indicated miles in 2017, when Indy driver Graham Rahal acquired it for his private collection. It has not been started since, or had fuel or a battery put in. Factory equipment includes Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, Marchesini wheels, and a graphics package specific to the FE. Power is supplied by a 998cc Testastretta L-twin paired with a 6-speed gearbox, and the original protective film remains on the engine covers and frame. The selling dealer acquired this 998S from Mr. Rahal last month and is now offering it with the original MSO, keys, and manuals. The 998S Final Edition represented the end of Ducati’s superbike lineup designed by Massimo Tamburini, which began 10 years earlier with the 916. Just 562 Final Edition 998S models with a monoposto tail section were produced. Designations for the FE can be seen on the side fairing panels, and the model also received a Tricolore graphic on the tail section. Factory equipment includes fully-adjustable titanium nitride coated Ohlins forks, as well as an Ohlins rear shock and steering damper. 5-spoke Marchesini wheels are finished to match the trellis frame and come wrapped in the original Michelin Pilot tires. FE bikes were not individually numbered, though they did receive a Final Edition plaque on the triple clamp. 2 miles are shown on the mechanical odometer, which according to the seller is consistent with other Ducatis they have just removed the crate. The 998cc Testastretta L-twin in the 998S FE was increased in output to a factory-reported 136 horsepower at 10,200 rpm. The engine is paired with a traditional Ducati dry clutch and 6-speed manual gearbox. Dealer preparation has not been performed, and the tank has reportedly never been filled with fuel. Both factory keys, the original tool pouch, and owner’s manuals are included with the sale.
