Not me, just asking...

Selling my 2008 Ducati Desmosedici 600 Mile Service and recall work done at Rockwell Cycles. Oil changed once a year. Bike is in Attack trackonly body work. BST Carbon Fiber Wheels 17" included....so you can run ANY tire you want and not the crappy Bridgestone 16" rear that it came with. Original Wheels included as well. Bike was lowsided. It did not flip. The damage was cosemetic. The bike still has scuffs on the clutch cover, Right clip on, and front brake lever. The fairing stay developed a crack, but was repaired, same goes for the carbon fiber part that goes around the Radiator (just a cover). Right footpeg has scuffs. This is NOT an immaculate Bike. It has the RACE Exhaust and ECU installed. I tried to ride this bike like it was designed to be ridden, unfortunately this bike is simply TOO MUCH bike for me. If you have a desmo already, this is a great track body double so you can keep the babied one pristine. If you have never ridden a desmo...DONT BUY THIS BIKE....on the street this thing is SO LOUD it hurts. The only time i rode it on the street was from the dealership to my garage. Since then its been all track miles. The bike runs perfectly. I converted the bike to 520 chain and sprockets which have less than 150 miles on them. DID ERV3 Chain. I sold the original forks, because nobody could set up gas pressurized forks. So these are OHLINS RT 1198S forks. If you really want to ride this on the street, I can include the headlight, tail light, mirrors and turn signals (integrated into mirrors) for an additional $500. You would then need to source yourself a nose fairing or carve your own. I had it professionally repainted the correct color that it should have come in originally.

I only buy bikes now that need a brick used in conjuction with the side stand, this one doesn't require said brick, so I'm out.

Uh, didn't desmos come in red? And why does he say you shouldn't ride it one the street as it SO loud, yet he fits 1198 ohlins forks for street riding? And I may be wrong, but I don't remember the Alice race team running Desmos either.

It been crashed in its use as a track only bike. He repainted the color he wanted. He didn't like the front forks on the D16, so he changed them for his preference. No different than me adding Ohlins suspension to my ZX10R. Props to him for trying to ride it as intended.

^ beat me to it lol

i dont think you know how to read. He said he rode it on the street once, and it was too loud for him, and the bike is not street legal right now. Also he states that he couldnt find anyone to work on the original forks so he swapped them for the 1198's. As for the original paint i have no clue.

I see space underneath the sidestand for a brick you're good to go! Expect to see you tomorrow at GSS with it
