Forget about re-purposing your existing streetbike into a track day weapon. Forget about one of those ring-a-ding-ding tiny two strokes or exotic 250cc racers. If you want to impress your track day buddies, it’s time to man up and thow a leg over a factory superbike such as this Ducati 748 RS.
Designed as a platform for privateer racers, the 748 RS is not your ordinary streetbike. In fact, it has none of the weighty bits required for a streetbike such as lights and turn signals, speedometer, protective bits such as cam belt covers, etc. What it does have is exclusivity – all draped in carbon fiber.
From the seller:
We have a like new 748 RS that has very little time on it. It has only seen the track once and was ridden only for about 2 hours. We have been using this 748 RS as a display in our showroom ever since.
There are only 50 of these 748 RS’s produced and they are going to be hard to find in this condition which other than a little tire wear is darn near perfect.
Some of the features of the 748 RS include but are but not limited to:
-A Ducati Corse custom built engine made in Italy 130 horse power engine
-Ohlin front forks, rear shock and steering stabalizer
-Full carbon fiber body
-Carbon fiber chain guard
-Magnetti Marelli digital and analog guages
-Marchesini light weight wheels
-Factory installed and tuned termi race exhaust with carbon fiber mufflers
If you’re looking for the ultimate track bike this Ducati 748 RS is ready to go. It is not a 748 that has been modified to make it a RS model, so there are no mounts or electronics to make it street legal. This is a out of the crate ready to race super bike.
This has got to be one of the more unique Ducati models available to the public these days. While a new bike purchase of an RS model would usually require a racer’s CV (and budget), the second-hand market provides an opportunity for mere mortals to experience this quality of track-worthy machinery.
RSBFS has only ever posted on one previous Ducati 748 RS model (see HERE ), which had an asking price of $12,500. This particular bike is in excellent, hardly used condition and the auction is only at $7,600 (reserve not yet met).
World-class componentry, total exclusivity, major jealous props from your track day mates PLUS all of the power, performance and handling from this racebike package can all be yours today!
