motor: gas
odometer: 19561
EDIT: $300 PRICE DROP, as I've installed the OEM seat and spare OEM mufflers not included. New Dunlop tires just installed.

1992 Ducati 907 i.e. Miles 19,561 { will rise a bit as I'll be taking her to shows this summer }
VIN ZDM1MB4P5NB001303 Engine Number MB4N001310

One owner from new between 1992 and 2020. Then sold to the next owner who had it for 3 years, who accumulated less than 200 miles. Then sold to me last fall.

This is a somewhat rare bike, with only 2303 produced worldwide. It’s nicely optioned with period mods that include F1 mufflers, Ducati ECM chip, Ricks Motorsports VR, hard-wired Omega battery tender, Pro Italia “big bore” clutch slave cylinder, steel braided front brake and clutch lines, upsized 525vx DID chain and JT sprockets with +2 on the rear and a brand new magnetic-mounted tank bag. Power is rated at 90hp, and the sound at full boil is outstanding. The fuel injection mix is perfect.

She’s currently up to date on all recommended maintenance items, with a full mechanical, electrical, and cosmetic refresh completed last winter. She starts easily, comes down to a nice idle when warm then shifts, brakes and handles perfectly. The flat torque curve, comfortable riding position, excellent mid-corner stability, and super braking from the 4-pot Brembos up front make for a superb overall riding experience. All electrics work perfectly, including charging, lighting, multifunction dash, and clock. No leaks, no issues, with instrument needles that are nice and steady. Comes with a hard-wired Omega battery tender, a complete set of duplicate decals, pics when the bike was being uncrated and assembled in 1992 along with 2 sections of the original shipping crate and original sales paperwork. The NY Title was signed by the original owner as the Transferor. The Transferee’s name was purposely not filled out, and I believe the next owner’s name can be filled in and a new Title applied for. Title pics available of course.

Currently registered and inspected in VT.

Documentation includes full maintenance records, original bill of sale, etc from the original owner and my notes/receipts of the complete refresh done over last winter.

Brand new Dunlop Roadsmart III front and rear tires professionally mounted and spin-balanced on July1, chain and sprockets look new, the 2022 battery recently tested fine.

Reason for selling? I have just now fully recovered from lower back surgery in February to correct a ruptured disc at L5/S1, my second surgery at that location. This bike is simply too heavy {about 500lbs wet compared to my 154lbs} to wheel in and out of my walkout basement. This, coupled with a 27 inch inseam and a 31 inch seat height and my age of 72 means it really has to go. Wasn’t happy about this decision so I just picked up another Ducati, this one a 2009 Monster 696. Much lighter, with a lower seat height.

With exceptions noted below, the cosmetic condition of this 30-year-old bike is very nice, with the panels showing a few very, very minor defects. The seat, controls, instrument panel, rims/suspension, frame, etc are noted as being exceptional. Of the 5 body panels, 4 show very nicely with a very few / very minor cosmetic defects only seen under a flashlight from 1 foot away. Has some scuffs/scratches on the lower right panel from a zero speed tipover from the PO loading onto a trailer, along with a silver dollar-sized tank ding on the right side. These have been touched up. Otherwise the tank exterior is very, very nice, with the tank interior being mint.

Last winter’s maintenance list is too long to post here but is available of course. It includes new Ducati cam belts, clutch, brake and fork oils flushed, fresh oil/filter and oil screen checked {I used MobilOne 15w-50 for flat tappet engines}, suspension settings set to standard after the fork oil flush, fresh NGK plugs, new air filter, coolant reservoir rinsed {didn’t really need it}, all grounds and starter connections polished, clutch pack and basket removed then completely disassembled and cleaned. All panels were removed for general cleaning of the frame, with wiring neatened up and secured. Valve clearances were checked previously at 17K miles and not due for some time. The bike is super clean behind the panels.

I had my local Ducati dealer change the in-tank fuel filter and fuel lines for me. I recently had some touch-up paint custom mixed to address the cosmetic issues on the right panel.

Cosmetic Issues and Notes:
– noted scrape marks on a short section on the top corners of both sides of the swingarm and the backside of both mufflers from previous interference with each other. had been corrected by moving mufflers away. {caused by previous mis-installation of F1 aftermarket mufflers i think }. not easily seen.
– noted missing area of paint on rear of front fender, covered w/decal. { caused by PO compressing forks fully during fork oil fill I think}
– some scratches/scuffs on lower right hand fairing and silver dollar sized tank ding, from zero speed PO tip over while loading onto trailer. Not too noticeable at first glance but worth mentioning. They’re not showing very well in pics, but are there.

The price of $4675 reflects current market values I’ve seen, adding value for the current maintenance status, period mods, low miles, provenance and docs from new, less the cosmetic issues noted. The bike as priced will come with two sets of keys, a full set of new decals, a hard-wired Omega battery tender, a vial of custom-mixed touch up paint, 2 sections of the original Italian shipping crate, original bill of sale/documentation papers, uncrating and assembly pics.

$300 Price drop, as I'm selling the Corbin seat and OEM pipes separately.

Located in southern VT. With the combination of front Brembo 4 pot brakes grabbing 320mm rotors and our house being ¾ mile up a maintained gravel road, I’ll need a deposit before any test rides.

pics added with stock seat, just before last sunday's show.
