Hey guys, I just picked up an 03 999. The bike is perfect with a brand new engine. The paint is messed up from a cleaning chemical, or angry girlfriend from previous owner.
I'm planning on selling it. I'm going to have it painted and thought about painting it 848 white. Has anyone ever seen aq white 999? could anyone photo shop one?
I was also wondering if you all though this would help or hurt re-sale. Thanks

look through this thread. there are a couple pics of a white xx9. I've also seen a couple other pics just in the past day or so while perusing the superbike threads. I like the look, but I don't know that it will necessarily help re-sale. I also don't think it looks as good on the xx9s as the 848s

That white 749 looks nice! If you do decide to repaint, make sure you take plenty of photos of the current paint damage, in case prospective buyers question if you repainted because it was damaged from a crash, etc.

WOW!! :eek: Those pictures of the white 749 are exactly what I was looking for!! Thanks so much. It looks beautiful

I'm definately taking lots of pics for before shots.

I think that may have sold me on the white. It looks realy good. His front fairing is missing a couple of the vents mine has. Is that a modified race fairing or just a design change? shaved maybe?

Ducati removed the upper vents in the later models.

The white 999 looks awesome. I was actually going to paint mine white, but I decided on matte black. The 03-04 749/999 had the upper vents like yours but were removed on the 05-06.
