2006 Ducati 999R VIN: ZDM1UB5W46B016222

Sadly I am putting up for sale for 2006 Ducati 999R that I just purchased locally here in Houston back in February. The bike is completely stock aside from after-market clip-ons. Currently has 8482 on the odometer, and will not go up as I am physically and to a certain degree mentally unable to ride her. I had hopes of making this my forever bike; but life has a funny way of changing your plans. Bike was originally from Arizona up until August of 2017 when the gentleman I purchased the bike from shipped from the MV Augusta dealership in Phoenix. Phoenix MV Augusta is now merged with Reparto Veloce in Chandler. AZ and since then all of the records have been purged and switched over to a new Quick Books. The lack of maintenance records was not a concern for me, as I could tell from the previous owner's garage and other high end machines that this bike was in tip-top shape. Since purchasing I have put a grand total of 200 miles on the bike. It is sitting on a tender with a full tank of fuel and stabilizer. I start her up every week and ride around the block. Anyone who is interested in the bike, I will share with the details of why it is up for sale. You can text or call me at 713-494-7524 or e-mail me at my law firm email address, [email protected]. I am asking $12,000 for the bike; but open to reasonable offers within reason of course!

The last two years of production were not numbered with a yoke plaque.

Just got back from Singapore and Thailand so bumping the bike again. I have lowered the price to 11K for a potential buyer from Canada; but there are some logistical issues with shipping.

Actually, the 999 series was a lot more comfortable than the 916 series. PT recognized this and wanted the 999 to be a better fit for a range of body sizes. One example is the adjustable seat, forward and back. Another is the rear sets and maybe other ergo changes. In the book, "999, Birth of a Legend", the author (Ian Fallon) went into some detail on the efforts to make the 999 more comfy.

Posterchild 23, you are selling one outstanding machine, it grows more popular as it gets older and I can attest to the qualities of the 999R series of bikes, I have an example of the first year. I realized that when one day I parked next to an 07 1098 and the quality and attention to detail features were obvious, it looked to me like Ducati had cheapened the brand. I've had my 999R for ten years now and I have never ridden a bike like it, I'll never ride to its capability. However, I've had the itch to get on a bike with modern electronics, just to see what that is all about.
