996SPS (1999) Yes or No

12008 Views 64 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  j0oftheworld
Hi everyone,

I have an opportunity to purchase a 1999 Ducati 996SPS with 5,000Km on the bike with a lot accessories (Slipper Clutch, New Radial Mount Forks & 4 Pot Gold series Brembo, Dymag Carbon wheels, Evolution Front Faring, & list goes on and on...etc) as can partially be seen on the pictures.

As bikes prices varies by country to country, my best analogy is that the seller is asking the price equivalent to a used 2006 Ducati Paul Smart.

1.) What do you guys think re the deal (Pice about right, too high, too low)

2.) I want to have 1 bike of the Tamburini design...not sure this is a good choice or I should hold off for a 998S, or 998R?

3.) Any particular concern over this 996SPS, anything to watch out?, etc...

Please excuse my ignorance & any perceived silly question this may seem to be...I'm totally torn & cant decide whether to proceed or not & would like your inputs as a sounding board.

Yups its a legit SPS, (Checked the VIN as well)

1.) Only thing is most stock items are long gone, re front faring would it be fair to say its basically standard 996? (To find a replacement i mean)

2.) What would theses bikes retail in your respected countries?

Thanks again for the help!

In France, a 996SPS is between 9000 and 12000 euros.
This bike is a good deal : Ohlins FG43 with radial bottom (1999 996SPS has Showa), Dymag wheels, STM etc ...

The front fairing is part of the Carbon dream Evoluzione kit : very hard to find it ! but you can find a stock front fairing.
Many thanks Dominique!

Seller was telling me this is a rare front nose from Evolution something....now that i got your info that its the same carbon dream that did the MH900E it all makes sense now....many thanks again!

Many thanks everyone for your kind inputs.......

Will certainly update if I can agree on a reasonable price with the seller...this would certainly be a good pair with my 999R Xerox.
Again all.....thanks so much for your inputs! Such a great community to get more ideas to ensure an informed decision is made.
I made a 2 step offer to seller

1.) Price without stock items (92% of agreed price)
2.) Price with stock items (8%)

Will pay # 1 first, if & when he can find the stock items. I will pay him the remaining 8%

Should I get it & no stock parts comes with this, will certainly look for the correct fairing.

Will update as once.

Stripped 996SPS with yours truly...thanks again for the inputs!

Quick question

I will have the front forks serviced (seals and oil) would it be necessary for the Dampers & Rear shocks as well ?

Thanks Adam will check it out & request this then.

Prophet, The pirelli supercorsa sp are nice aren't they I have them on my 999R as well.
Thx again all,

Seats and faring on the way...will certainly post when done.

Your right can't find decent used one so I ordered it via

DUCATI PARTS ONLINE | New & Used Original Ducati Motorcycle Parts & Accessories

Price seems competitive and I explicitly asked for New OEM.

Hope it arrives as such....will revert.

Its glory days are coming back...picking her up this evening!
Thanks again all for your support.
