This 2006 Ducati 999S is finished in black with a matching frame and shows just under 600 miles. It was purchased new by the previous owner and placed in a private collection, where it remained until earlier this year. As an S model, the bike carried a $23,995 MSRP and came equipped from the factory with Ohlins suspension, radial-mounted Brembo brakes, eccentric steering tube, adjustable footrests, and other track-focused items not offered on the base model. Power is provided by a 998cc Testastretta L-twin paired with a 6-speed gearbox, and a service performed in October 2018 included new timing belts, a fluid change, and more as outlined below. This 999S is now offered by the selling dealer in New Orleans with the factory books, three keys, and a clear Louisiana title. Designed by Pierre Terblanche, the Ducati 999 debuted in 2003 as the predecessor to the 998. The S model was offered exclusively with a Monoposto tail section featuring a white number plate. The trellis frame is finished in black to match the bodywork and features an adjustable eccentric steering head and Ohlins steering damper. Factory equipment for the S also includes TiN-coated Ohlins fork with radial-mounted Brembo brakes, and an Ohlins rear shock mounted with rising-rate linkage. The 2006 999S utilizes the same aluminum box-section swingarm as the 999R. Adjustable 5-position footrests and fore-aft seat adjustment are also standard items on the 999S. Y-spoke Marchesini wheels reportedly still wear the factory-installed tires. Just 595 miles are shown on the digital display. The 998cc Testastretta desmodromic L-twin was factory-rated for 143 horsepower in S trim and features a lighter crankshaft and Pankl titanium connecting rods. Power is routed through a traditional Ducati dry clutch and 6-speed gearbox. A service in October 2018 included replacement timing belts, a valve clearance inspection, a fluid change, and replacement filters. The owner’s manuals, workshop manual, three keys, and code card accompany the bike.
