There is a red 1000s for sale on ebay at the moment. The owner may be on this forum, I do not know. But he states that there were only 60 red 1000s bikes made for the USA. Has anyone heard this before. I remember there was a thread awhile back that gave numbers for the Sport Classic's that were made but I don't recall ever seeing this particular number for just the red 1000s?

That bike has been up on CL in Bay Area for quite some time now, maybe 3 months. I think the whole " only 60 were made for US" may be a marketing ploy to help sell "rare".

Yea, I can see that. Just wanted to see if this was new information I had never heard before.

I believe the red or black biposto S are the most rare...not counting the SE.

But it's a worthless rarity imo. Rare SC are the 06 Sport 1000 and the PS.

I paid 9k for my 1000s with 26k miles or so and a good service record.

Not sure I agree with above

There were only 5 black Sport 1000s sold in Canada and 10 of the 07' SE. I know of 6 SE in Canada and only 2 of the black 1000s. 1 of the 2 is a US import. Mine is 1of the 5 and the only Canadian black 1000s I have seen in the last 10 years of searching for these bikes

I said they are the most rare :) But it's just a paint job, it's not a full rare bike. And over time, those bikes just don't carry the collector value of their more rare mechanically gifted counterparts, if that makes sense. What's a Matrix 998 or a Diesel Monster worth these days? The entire 1000s LINE, is what I'd call psudo rare, BiPosto, but with the PS fairings. It's actually the worst "S" ever made by Ducati? The forks are budget, brakes are standard base fare, it's very un "S" like in a lot of ways :) A proper S would have at least 90s superbike level brakes, adjustable forks, and maybe even mag wheels IMO, certainly tubeless wheels of SOME type.

I hope that makes sense.....I own a 1000s, RED, it's my dream bike and I love her. But I don't think, when you consider the entire line of bikes, there are rare bikes and there are paint jobs. Bikes made in a configuration for just 1 year, in my opinion, will always be more rare than multiple year colorways, which happen all the time.

BTW, I really love these bikes for the simple reason is that I can own something kinda rare, but not priced through the roof. I got a 1000s, and a Matte Titanium 748s, I don't know what I want next :) These 2 beautiful girls represent less money than a used Panigalle BTW. Almost 30K on the 1000s!!! And nobody cares about a 748s, even though this is arguably the most beautiful Tamburini Superbike ever, FIGHT ME!

Also...so your saying we want a registry? :)
