This bike began as a new street bike in 2008. I rode it for roughly 15,000 street miles and decided to make it a race bike. The bike was converted and finished in February 2010 and first tested in March of 2010 where it was promptly crashed. The crash was a simple low-side during a track day which didn't do much damage to the bike, but destroyed the riders left hand making him unable to continue his riding career. Since the crash, the bike has been re-built completely from the ground up and is in tip-top shape once again.

There are only 3 spaces of visible damage that remain; The dash display plastic has been cracked though do not effect operation, The clutch side engine cover is pitted from rocks hitting it (but not visable with fairings on) and the right side tail pipe has a small crack in the carbon fiber tip. Other then those issues, the bike is in excellent race-ready condition. The fairings were either replaced or repaired and look mint.

Again, this bike is being sold due to injury and financial strife due to the injury, not because its a bad bike. This is the best Ducati I've ever ridden and it is a shame to not keep it. Sadly my doctors say I will never be able to race again, I can't even put a pair of leather gloves on, let alone move my fingers inside the gloves.

Asking $12,000 USD for all listed above.

I have a shit-load of spares and Magnesium wheels. I'd be willing to let everything I have go for $14,000 USD, just to get out of it all.

This bike is being sold in perfect working condition and will run in that condition for a great deal longer since its a recent build.

Please e-mail me: [email protected] or send me a PM from above.

This is a USED race vehicle, not designed for or setup for street use currently. It can be converted back to street use, but I do not have the facilities to do so. The bike does have a clean, registered title in California, completely paid up, so when the sale happens it can be transferred no problem.

I had the best stuff money could buy, thats why I had no other injury. My hand being broken was almost unrelated to the crash. A big rock was thrown in the air by my boot and it slammed into my hand at whatever speed I was going, right on the side where NO glove has protection. Eh, instant karma... I guess I wasn't ever meant to ride this bike. :(
sorry to hear of your life-changing injury, good luck in your sale.
there's a guy who does trackdays with one arm.... just food for thought
