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 Ducati 916 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 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. Approximately 300 of each series were produced.

This rare example of a limited edition member of the 916 family was bought new by the current vendor who advises it has been maintained in very good condityion as part of his private collection, covering only some 3,400 kilometres to date. The machine features a Meta alarm/immobiliser, carbon-fibre heel protector, and optional Termignoni exhausts, and comes complete with a cover, stand, custom cover (in black), tool kit, and owner's handbook. The original heel protector and exhausts are included in the sale, and the machine also comes with an extensive history file containing the original sales invoice, sundry bills, and a V5C Registration Certificate. Serviced and MoT'd by Pro Twins prior to sale, 'P6 SEN' represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a well-documented, low-mileage example of this sought-after limited edition member of the 916 family.
