Arrow '94 Ducati Supermono sells for $93,000

AN ULTRA-EXCLUSIVE Ducati Supemono has astounded bidders at a recent online auction by selling on eBay Australia for $110,000 AUD.

Fetching almost twice the price of a secondhand Ducati Desmosedici, the 572cc single cylinder machine weighs an anorexic 122kg, while thumping out a claimed 81bhp.

Opinions differ as to exactly how many Supermonos were made, but we've been reliably informed 65 were built over the bike's two-year production span (1993-95).

I knew I should have moth balled a couple of these
I was fortunate enough to watch these race and they decimated the class back then.

Actually, I don't think that price is out of whack at all. There were way more D16's produced. The Supermono is an amazing bike with huge stories surrounding it. No question it will be worth more than any production (non racer) version. A few traded hands for around $125,000 US a few years ago per a conversation I was in on with a man that restored them. So, the price seems to have taken a dip. Not too long ago, they could be had for around $45K US.

As for collectible sport bikes go, I would take a Supermono over just about anything out there, save for a Britten.

britten

For others, there is still a list...Brough Superior, NCR (just about any of them), and on and on...

A friend of mine used to race a Tigcraft framed DR800 (single 800cc) on slicks,

starting that bike was punishing
but was a joy to see him ride it, that thing was so fast

Just looking at one in person was inspiring...

Eric Fault raced a Woods/Rotax in the '90's. There was another one in the
CMRA but I can't remember who it was.

There were 2 super mono's in the '90's one year. Unbelieveable.
