748R w/ 1 mile

I saw this while at a dealer in RI picking up another bike, not sure if anyone is looking but it is for sale (sticker is 15k)...unfortunately it's out of the crate.

It's at Razee's

I have nothing to do with it but if this is better suited in the classifieds somewhere feel free to move it.

So in the us how did they get road registered? Seems an odd way to deliver a “race” bike with a speedo, idiot lights, ignition lock and shit steering damper. Just asking.

The shit damper is different (I assume something to do with the WSS rules) but for the rest of your questions:



In the US, the 996R, 998R, and 748R all had to be delivered as "race bikes" per US EPA regs. They have stickers all over them that say for competition use only. You could then go over to the parts desk and ask for lights, mirrors, stand, turn signals, license plate holder, etc. and put them all on. The 916SPS had the sticker but was delivered as a road bike and US customers had to sign a waiver saying they wouldn't ride them on the street but of course would go register them anyway. To get around that for the next batch (996R and later 998R), Ducati said hey no problem, they're race bikes and we will sell them as such. Of course, they left everything there so it was basically 45 min of work to add the needed street parts, hence all the other items you mentioned. The wiring is all there for lights and signals and they even came with the helmet holder cable. But it was enough to get the EPA to buy into the whole "race bike" scenario.



My 916SPS, US 996R, and 998R all have the stickers and the last two came like the 748R in this thread (Ohlins dampers though). In fact, my 996R is as it was out of the crate and has never been ridden. It is complete with all stickers and everything. I'll see if I can post pics. And I did get it registered exactly as it is. They didn't care it didn't have lights or anything (and of course, it's not like I rode it down there or anything). I bought it from a great member on here and he had a title for it he got when he bought it new from the dealer so clearly he didn't have any issues either.

Sorry about the double post...figured it was already known about to those who were actually looking, but obviously it caught my eye and I had to take a closer look while I was there...

No apologies necessary... That's at Razee's, which is where I take mine to get serviced. When I took it there last year, a bunch of guys from the shop came outside to check it out as they said they'd never seen one before. At that point this thing was still in the crate. What are the odds that of the literal handful of '02 R's in the states, 2 are within 60 miles of each other?

By the way @tyr , what are you doing down in our neck of the woods?
