1999 Ducati 996cc ST4
Frame no. ZDM1TB8S3XB000803
Ducati's first real stab at a touring model to complement its modern, leading edge sports bikes was the ST2 in 1997, which deployed the sport bike 907 Paso's air-cooled, fuel injected 2-valve motor in the Bologna firm's trademark trellis frame. The ST2 was soon followed by a more upmarket model using a modified version of the superbike 916's water-cooled, desmodromic 4-valve engine (by then from the 996) - the ST4 - in 1999. It was, in truth, a slightly detuned 996 Superbike dressed as a fully-faired, 6-speed Super (OK, Sport) Touring (ST!) machine. Although stylistically similar to its predecessor, the ST4 was considerably more powerful, scorching to a top speed of fractionally over 160mph when tested by the UK's MCN. With the ST4 was an ST4S with slightly improved ride and performance, not that you would notice, and this in turn was followed by the ST3 which used a clever SOHC 3-valve motor.
The ST series were fine sport tourers, perhaps overshadowed in their day by the world's most beautiful superbike, but what cannot be denied is that they saved Ducati's bacon with the succeeding Multistrada series – a masterstroke – based on this solid platform. This bike has over 38,000 miles on it and reportedly still feels like new. With minor wear and tear which is commensurate with its age and mileage, this ST4 is sold 'as-is.' The buyer is advised to undertake any necessary recommissioning together with all safety checks before riding into the sunset once again.
