2000 Ducati 998 R

999ccs of narrow-head genius in the Testastretta engine. Squarer bore, more revs, enclosed bodywork, bulbous tail unit, outrageous 140bhp, the first of the truly savage Ducatis. At 9,000rpm this thing bloody takes off at lightening speed. Based on our test, we think it's an absolutely glorious bike to ride.

Power: 140bhp Weight: 192kg Top speed: 172mph

Ducati 888; best looking sport motorcycle of all time. I don't care if it's down on HP vs new sport bikes, this bike is pure art on wheels and the proportions are perfect.

Hey Guys,

I am developing a children's book about X-rays and we have an X-ray image of this motorcycle. I need a hi-res visible light image of the bike as well. Do you know who I should contact to get a hi-res version of this image? If you know contact me at

If I could pick one it would be the 998R..

I have an extremely rare Ducati/PCR Go kart racing engine, its 125 2 stroke. It is complete, running, brand new piston and ring done by legend Chuck Shaver. Ran once

It may be the only one out there, if you collect Ducati, just imagine how sweet it would be to have a nice Ducati bike paired with a Ducati racing kart side by side.

Call me and make me an offer, I will give you the numbers and send pictures, you can Google it, but you wont find much if anything at all. If you are a collector of Ducati, this is a must have for any true collector.

Happy Life!
