2000 Ducati 996 Biposto

Engine no. SB5Y008365
Although Ducati's water-cooled 8-valve V-twin had been around in its original 851 and 888 incarnations for six years and indeed, had already won three World Superbike Championships, it was the arrival of the iconic 916 in 1994 that really captured the public's imagination. Styled by Massimo Tamburini, the 916 and its subsequent evolutions established Ducati as one of the world's foremost brand names. Universally recognized as icons of automotive art, Ducati motorcycles have been exhibited in some of the world's foremost museums, including the Guggenheim in New York and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco. The Ducati 916 won the World Superbike Championship in its 1994 debut season and its evolutions three times after that. Enough said.

For 1999 the stronger and much improved 996cc engine of the limited-edition 916SPS was standardized on the new '996' model, while a Ducati Corse works development took Carl Fogarty to his fourth World Superbike Championship that same year.

The Biposto presented here appears to be in nice condition having two Termignoni exhaust and a custom paint showcasing 'Il Tricolore' colors.
