Buying Advise - 2007 Ducati GT 1000

Hi Guys,

I just joined the Ducati community and about to pull the trigger on my first Ducati. I have been a member of couple other forums and I know the knowledge in these groups is tremendous and everyone truly helps out. I would like to thank you all for taking the time to read and advise.

Being that said I am finally found the bike I love and I am about to make an offer on this bike locally. Before doing that I wanted to take the advise from the experts here on a couple of things and whatever you guys want to share.

1. What do you guys think about the bike/price/condition?
2. What are the major items (maintenance/repairs) I should be worried about for a bike like this and it's age?
3. What parts (original/3rd Party) should I consider changing/upgrading to make it a stunner?

Details about the bike:
2007 Ducati GT1000
Odometer: 9000
Paint color: red
Title status: clean


Notes from the seller:
Excellent plus condition, 9k original miles. Extenuating circumstances facing me to sell this beautiful collectors bike. Remapped, Rizoma forged wheels, performance remap, Staintune exhaust, newly upgraded clutch cylinder, air box, fender eliminator, performance front fork kit, performance rear suspension and on, and on. Over 20k invested. I have all of the original parts, and a few performance parts that I have not had a chance to install. Bike sounds and runs amazing. No expansion tank issues and it was replaced.

Some one has spent some serious money on upgrades can't comment on
price you didn't post it? Collectors Bike, least collectable version of any
of the Sport Classic's.

Added price, 8k USD. I am not looking for a collectors bike either, I want something I can ride with. A cassic GT look with some mandatory upgrades for today's game.

Looks like we are in the same area, I have been looking at that bike. Like always I would try to negotiate down a price a little bit. There are some nice upgrades on it though so I don't know if the seller would be willing to lower it. The bike looks like it's in pretty good condition. The bike may be at least 10 years old but if it has been taken care of it should be ok. There aren't too many miles on it so that is a plus. I would suggest you do the battery mod and rectifier relocation. Would be a good start to a Sport Classic.

Thanks for the advice sir. Good to see another member from the valley. The bike is really clean, I test drove it. Surprisingly it drove better than my 2016 Bmw R Nine T.
The rectifier relocation has been done. Not really family with the battery mod, can you get me the thread info?

Blue book is 6600 to 10300 he says he has all the original
parts as well there is some added value in them. Didn't say
you were looking for a collector bike just wanted to mention
the sellers comment is a little off as far as Sport Classic's
are concerned. It's a pretty strong buyers market right now
prices are pretty low on Bikes lately.

"Being that said I am finally found the bike I love" if this is
true go for it.

Got it, make sense. Any comments on the upgraded forged wheels? Are these highly desirable? I would have preferred spoked aluminum wheels from a SC 1000 or a set of Kineo wheels.

The forged wheels are much lighter and tubeless the SC 1000
wheels are not I have no idea how light the Kineo wheels are. If you
do get it I have some items you might like. I sold my 06 SC1000 this
year and have several items I need to part with.
