They're model year 2001.
The confusion lies in that they originally took orders Jan. 1st, 2000, and they were supposed to be MY2000. But it took over a year for Ducati to start building them, so they have VIN numbers indicating they are indeed 2001 models.
They only produced one run, so there shouldn't be any 2002 models, though I suppose it's possible that some of the later ones, should they have been built after December '01, could have the "2" in the VIN, but I doubt it...
