Styled by Massimo Tamburini, the iconic 916 immediately captured the public's imagination on its arrival in 1994 and would go on to establish Ducati as one of the world's foremost brand names. In developing the original Ducati 851 Superbike, the 916's direct ancestor, engineer Massimo Bordi created one of the finest motorcycle power plants ever. Ducati's trademark desmodromic valve system was retained, as was the 90-degree angle between the cylinders. Wrapped around this outstanding engine was a frame consisting of a trellis of straight tubes, whose design has since become standardised throughout the Ducati range. The integration of all these elements was the key to the 916's success: that and a brilliant on-road performance that eclipsed just about everything else around at the time.

In addition to the Strada base model there were a number of limited edition versions of superior specification, one of which - the Senna - commemorated the late Formula 1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna, who had owned an 851 and was a friend of Ducati's owners, the Castiglioni brothers. The 'Senna 1' 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, with different colour schemes and only minor changes, before the model was deleted at the end of 1998. Senna production amounted to 1 in 1994, 300 in 1995, 552 in 1997 and 49 in 1998.

This imported Senna II is number '135' of the series and carries an identifying plaque on the top yoke. Fully serviced by JHP (Ducati Coventry) on 4th May 2010 (invoice on file) 'P588 VRO' displays a total of only 5,986 kilometres on the odometer and is described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition. The machine is offered with all books, spare keys, MoT to 3rd May 2011 and Swansea V5 document.
