THIS is PRICELESS
Q: Could you tell me please what makes this the special edition you claim it is? Its a beautiful bike, but I don't understand what makes it a collectable. Is it the color combination? Also, could you please tell me the vin# so that I can authenticate the bike's condition as well as its status as a collectors item. Thank you very much. Brennan Jul-19-06
A: Sure, I would be happy to tell you. It is partly the colors since it was the first time Ducati came out with these, it was partly the fact that they had lowered the MSRP from what used to be very high, and partly because of the new engine design and numbering they came up with, but most importantly, they used these facts to decide that this was the best time to make these in such few numbers. I have to go to a friend's house where I have the bike stored to get the VIN number but I will definitely post it tomorrow night. Another easy way to verify how many of these there are, make sure you try to find another one for sale. If they say they have one (Which will most likely not be the case) then ask to see it or a picture. I assure you 100% it is not the 800 Sport. I know this for a fact because there are so few of these. Period. Also I already know that the SuperSport is the upgrading model of the 800 Sport. I am not trying to hide that at all, but that is not what makes this so valuable
. There are tons of 800 SuperSports for sale, they made thousands of them. The reason they picked the 800 Sport to make so few of... I have no idea, but that is what they did.
So once again, PLEASE, make sure you search for yourself! Go look and do your research, you will find out that what I am saying is true, plain and simple. Once again too, I will post the VIN tomorrow so everyone can make sure there is nothing wrong with it and that is really is an 800 Sport, not the SuperSport! Good luck and Happy Bidding!!!
It's because it's an ECONOMY version and it wasn't popular.
