The limited edition Senna version of Ducati's iconic '916' superbike first appeared in 1995, differing from the Strada by virtue of its predominantly dark grey colour scheme; 916SPS chassis and running gear; and Pankl con-rods inside the engine. Two further series were produced – the Senna II and Senna III - with different colour schemes and only minor changes before the model was deleted at the end of 1998. The Senna III offered here is the last of only 300 examples of this exclusive model to be produced (see Ducati factory correspondence on file). The current owner purchased the Senna from a Ducati dealer in Zürich in 2009, by which time it had covered only 1,500 kilometres.

The Ducati has now covered 5,900 kilometres from new and only 1,800 since its last service in 2010. We are advised that it will have undergone a major service at an official Ducati dealer prior to sale (in January 2014). Modifications include an Alcantara seat with Brazilian flag patch, Ayrton Senna patch and Italian flag patch; special bodywork stickers; Pazzo racing brake and clutch levers; and a Zero Gravity dark smoke windscreen. Signed by World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss, the machine comes with full service history, Swiss Carte Grise, technical inspection and all its original accessories plus many optional ones.

    Ducati 916 Senna III N° 300 1998

    Moteur n° ZDM 916W4 013158

    La version Senna produite en série limitée de l'emblématique 916 de Ducati, qui apparut pour la première fois en 1995, différait de la Strada par sa peinture majoritairement gris foncé, sa partie cycle et sa mécanique 916 SPS et ses bielles Pankl. Deux autres séries furent produites – les Senna II et Senna III –avec des livrées différentes et des modifications mineures avant la suppression du modèle à la fin de 1998. La Senna III offerte ici est le dernier des 300 exemplaires produits seulement de ce modèle exclusif (voir la correspondance de l'usine Ducati dans le dossier). Le propriétaire actuel acheta la Senna auprès d'un concessionnaire Ducati à Zürich en 2009, date à laquelle elle n'avait parcouru que 1 500 km.

    La Ducati en affiche maintenant 5 900 depuis l'origine et 1 800 seulement depuis le dernier entretien effectué en 2010. Nous avons noté qu'elle bénéficiera d'un entretien complet chez un agent Ducati officiel avant la vente (en janvier 2014). Les modifications comprennent une selle en Alcantara ornée du drapeau brésilien, de l'insigne Ayrton Senna et du drapeau italien, des stickers spéciaux, de leviers de frein et d'embrayage compétition Pazzo et d'un pare-brise teinté Zero Gravity. Signée par le Champion du Monde Superbike Troy Bayliss, la machine est accompagnée de son historique d'entretien complet, de sa carte grise suisse, de son contrôle technique et de tous ses accessoires d'origine plus de nombreuses options.
