The Collection / Ducati 996S 2001

In 1994 Ducati rocked the sports bike world with the 916 and it instantly became a motorcycling masterpiece. Styling was sexy and dramatic and the detail, such as single sided swinging arm and under seat exhaust, was exotic and desirable. Over twenty years later the desire grows again.

In 1998 the 996 replaced the 916 and it quickly became the pride and joy of the Borgo Panigale factory.  The new model was highly successful in numerous championship and it won the World Superbike Championship three times in a row.

"Ducati’s 996, the successor to the illustrious 916, may not be as famous or mentioned as often as it’s celebrated father, but it is actually a far better machine………it is the true connoisseurs’ choice with the owning experience to match its blue chip price"

Pierfrancesco Chili
