1998 DUCATI 916SPS No. 486. 996cc motor. AS NEW. 828 Km. Bought new, 1 May 1998 from Uptown Motorcycles, Dunedin. Never registered, but has VIN plate. Ridden only a few times on sunny days until 2000. Since then, only test ridden by Matt at Hamilton Motorcycles after belt & oil changes. FAULT .... the right hand head light, the dipped beam, has a crack. A new unit is around $NZ 1400, don't know about second hand. Have always used Motul oil. The standard silencers are in the box with the standard exhaust chip. Both factory recalls have been done, one by Dave Shand at Uptown, the other by Matt at Hamilton Motorcycles.

Still as out of factory crate, of which some is with bike. Has genuine factory carbon rear wheel hugger, all factory manuals and comprehensive magazine articles re this model. It's lived in a lounge most of its life. It's very hard for me to part with this, but I'm obliged to try. The bike is in secure storage but can be viewed, only by previous appointment, at Moto Extreme, South Dunedin. Finance may be possible through Moto Extreme.

No buy now. No swaps. No test rides. No dreamers and No offers. I've had some very enthusiastic, genuine riders email/phone about the intention to buy, due to limited means, but upfront about it...that's fine, is a genuine pleasure to chat with them... but please... dollars buy the bike, not waffle and promises...

Could be delivered anywhere in NZ, at cost, by me, in van. Bike Tranz quote around $650 from Dunedin to middle of North Island.


An identical bike to mine, with only 19 miles on the clock (mine has 515 miles) sold, a few months ago in USA for $US37,000, AROUND $NZ58,000, PLUS SHIPPING TO NZ, PLUS IMPORT FEES, PLUS G.S.T.

Simply look at the exchange rate, check shipping costs and Customs charges... food for thought??
