1994 Ducati 916 Varese
The bike that changed the face of Sportsbike design forever, the Ducati 916 is regularly referred to as one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever built.
Designed by Massimo Tamburini & his brilliant team at the Cagiva Research Centre, the 916 would provide the platform for Ducati to decimate the World Superbike Championship from 1994 until the end of its production in 2001 in 996 guise. In 2002 the Testastretta 998 engine was introduced but chassis & aesthetics remained virtually unchanged. Despite its aging design the model continued to dominate in WSBK and domestic championships around the world throughout its production and up until 2004.
Of all 1994 production, the most sought-after are the very small production run built at the Varese factory by Cagiva, after a fire in the Bologna paint shop closed the 916 factory line. The Varese bikes were all 13 character VINs, and had many higher-spec items, like Pankl con-rods, the programmable P8 ECU from earlier SP5 racer bike, and an assortment of definable items not fitted to the Bologna bikes, and all were stamped or embossed with the Cagiva logo, whereas the Bologna bike were stamped with Ducati logos.
This example is one of the first built, production number 97 makes this one of the first batch of 200 built at the Schiranna (VA) plant in Varese. In preparation for selling this bike has undergone a €2500 ($4.1kAU) fully documented service including belts, fuel tank removed & flushed, new filters, fluids, new vertical cylinder belt pully bearing, new tyres and battery. This spectacular example of Tamburini's masterpiece has traveled only 26,000k’s and presents completely original.
