This 2001 Ducati 996S is one of approximately 500 examples produced and was acquired by the seller five years ago from its original owner before being sold to its current owner in 2016. Power is from a 996cc eight-valve V-twin mated to a six-speed transmission, and the model features Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes, and other factory performance equipment. This example has been modified with carbon fiber and billet trim, a Termignoni exhaust system and ECU, and more. The timing belts were last changed in 2018, and a fluid service was completed in March 2019. This 996S shows just over 1,800 miles and is offered by the seller on behalf of its current owner in Georgia with spare parts and a clean Tennessee title in the owner’s name.
The 996S was a road-going version of Ducati’s World Superbike Championship motorcycle and featured a monoposto seat, Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers, and adjustable Öhlins suspension. This example has been modified with a rear fender and other components in carbon fiber as well as a black windscreen and a clear LED taillamp with integrated turn signals. The seller notes a chip in the paint on the rear wheel as well as a rub mark on right fairing.
Acculine rearsets have been fitted along with a billet timing cover, clutch cover, frame plugs, fluid reservoir caps, and axle nuts. New Avon tires are said to have been installed approximately 250 miles ago in 2016.
Instrumentation includes a 180-mph speedometer, a 13k-rpm tachometer, a coolant temperature gauge, and a five-digit odometer showing just over 1,800 miles, approximately 250 of which have been ridden by the current owner. CRG brake and clutch levers have been added along with a Ducabike steering stabilizer holder and an STM clutch slave cylinder, clutch pushrod button, bar ends, and front fork adjuster knobs.
The liquid-cooled 996cc V-twin features four desmodromic valves per cylinder and is paired with a six-speed transmission. The cooling system has been upgraded with Samco silicone radiator hoses, an aluminum coolant reservoir and fan, and a Speedymoto water pump housing. The seller reportedly performed a timing belt service in February 2018 as well as a fluid service in March 2019 using Motul synthetic oil, brake and clutch fluid, and a new oil filter.
The engine is equipped with an STM crankcase breather, a 50mm Termignoni exhaust system with carbon fiber mufflers, and an accompanying ECU chip. Fuel lines have been fitted with metal quick-connectors, and a billet pressure plate features stainless steel clutch springs and anodized fasteners. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a quick-change rear sprocket carrier equipped with a AFAM 39-tooth sprocket.
A clear windscreen accompanies the sale along with other spare parts, oil, and keys. A start-up and walk-around video is presented below.
