2001 Ducati 748s 21985miles, Tax till March 2015. MOT till July 2015.
I have had this bike since early 2011. It has been keep in a dry garage ever since I have had it and only been used in the dry. The Previous owner was meticulous in his care of it too.
It is in fantastic condition, the paint work as bright now as when it came out of the factory.
Being a proper 'S' model it benefits from the the much nicer 5 spoke Marchesini wheels and the gold nitride coating to the front fork.
This bike is completely standard apart from the vinyl number board on the front. I kept this on as it looks great and offers some protection from stone chips. There is also some venture shield on the centre 'V' piece that is prone to road grime.
I had the bike MOT'd on the 17th of July and it flew threw with no problems.
I have mainatined this bike regardless. As such it benfits from the following:
New tyres with less then 800 miles on them.
New clutch pack.
Recent chain and sprockets.
Recent new rear master cylinder.
Serviced earlier this year including oil, filters and the all important cambelts.
Bike also benefits from being fitted with a spyball alarm and immobiliser system complete with paper work to get insurance discount.
Comes with 2 keys and alarm fobs.
A list of past receipts, and bills documenting all the work carried out.
A full factory work manual, if you are inlclined you can do all the work yourself with this.
Please bare in mind this bike is 14 years old so does have some very minor flaws.
Being overly critical the only flaws are as follows:
Mirrors have some light scratches.
Area where key sits has some very small chips.
Pillion seat has a very small scuff on the rear.
Heel plates have some scuffs.
The worst defect is that the temperature guage has a crack in the face. This is a common problem and does not affect the way it works in the slightest. I never got round to fixing it as I wasnt worried about it.
It sounds like a lot but I am just being brutally honest. This is the nicest example 748 I have seen in the last few years. You will struggle to find a cleaner example anywhere.
Over all this bike still turns heads wherever it goes. It sounds, looks and goes just an Italian sportsbike should. It is the first Ducati I have owned and loved every second of it. There is something about it that is very different to owning a Japanese bike. I'm only selling as I have too many bikes and am getting married later in the year!
Bike is located in a secure location near Harrogate.
I know how much these are worth what I am after for it. The reserve is a fair price however there is a 99p start so get bidding and grab a bargain for the summer.
