1997 Ducati 996cc 916 SPS
Registration no. R450 ARP
Frame no. ZDMH100AAVB000280
Engine no. 000334
Designed by the great Massimo Tamburini, the 916 redefined motorcycle handling, looks, and performance. Then came the 916SPS (Sport Production Special) homologation version, with 996cc capacity and many lightweight and performance enhancing components. In 1997, thought to be the most desirable year for the SPS, only 404 were made; this machine is number 381. R450 ARP was purchased new in the UK by the first owner, who had Marvic wheels fitted, together with assorted carbon fibre parts including swinging arm protector, sprocket cover, clutch cover, and rear shock guard. A Datatool alarm was also fitted. Whilst with the second owner, the bike had an engine rebuild at 5565 kms (thought to be due to faulty main bearings) and the invoice for this is on file. In 2006 the bike was purchased by the vendor's father who MoT'd it in 2008 and covered only 40 kms on it before selling it to his son in 2009. He used it only once, covering a mere 2 kms, and it now has a recorded mileage of only 11,082 kms. (6,887 miles). Remaining in pristine condition, the vendor fitted a new battery and new front brake pads in November 2018. However, due to the recent lack of use, it is recommended that a new owner should have the bike serviced, checked over, and have new belts fitted if the SPS is to be used on the road. Documentation comprises a current V5C, the original purchase invoice, the owner's manual, the warranty (service) booklet, two expired MoTs, the aforementioned rebuild invoice, sundry invoices/receipts, and miscellaneous papers.
