1998 Ducati ST2. Silver, 23200 miles, third adult owner (I've had her for just over two years). Hardbags, Heli Bars, Sargent seat, touring windscreen, bar end mirrors (stock mirrors available), rear fender eliminator kit (not installed). Newish Pilot Roads, newish chain, brand new voltage reg recently installed, fresh oil change at this time. Great bike, just time for me to move on. $3800. No joyrides.
Email or call Tom (804)852-9877 (cell phone, please leave a message if no answer).
sounds kinda cheap to me...or is it just me?

Well, he doesn't say that it wasn't dropped or crashed or a salvage. Ask for pics, $3800 isn't bad for an 7-8 year old with only 2300 on it. I thought the '98's had that 1 year only, oddball wattage altenator, maybe I'm confusing it with the '98 SS. He says it has a new R/R, but by who, Ducati or Electrex (sp?)? Ask how old the battery is and will it hold a charge.

I'm starting to see a lot of 1998 ST2 in the $3500-$4500 range, especially if they've got a few miles on them (over 20,000). The charging system is unique to the 1998, and problematic. The voltage regulator and the stator are different than other years. Most people relocate their voltage regulators, to try to keep them from burning up. Mine is actually mounted on top of my open-top air box. When even stuck in traffic, it gets air flowing over it (in 21k miles, I've been through two voltage regulators and a stator with my 1998). Despite the electrical issues, the 1998 has the better, adjustable suspension over the newer model ST2 bikes. I'm quite pleased with my 1998 ST2.....It's only left me stranded three times....fortunately two of them were in the driveway.

If the bike is in decent shape, it sounds like a good deal. It sounds like it will need the 24K svc ($600- $1000). But even if you had to put $600 in plus $3800 for the bike you got a sweet ride for $4400.
