As lovely as Ducati’s modern superbikes are, they can’t match the impact, visual or otherwise that the 916/748 made in the 1990s.
If you’re hankering after one of Ducati’s iconic Massimo Tamburini-designed machines, there’s unlikely to be much better than this zero-mile, late-model 748S now on www.mcnbikesforsale.com.
The bike has come from a private collection in Ireland, and is exactly as is left the showroom – it’s not even had its carbon Termignoni cans fitted. As one of the latest bikes, it benefits from all the improvement throughout the 748’s life, as well as the slightly different fairing sides with less air vents.
The vendor is only asking £6260 – only £2000 more than higher miles used examples, and less than the cost of a new budget 600 all-rounder.
