Bike was purchased in 2015. It has been serviced by Ducati since, with one year off the road (last year). The most recent service was 8/4/21 (last week) including belts changed and new tyres fitted. The above rebuild and conversion was done in late 2010 and since the bike has covered around 4500miles. Bike runs on 15W50 oil. Because of the rebuild there are no cam follower issues often associated with the 748.
Having said all this, the recent service and new tyres came to over £1100. This bike is a concourse piece of moto art. The back history is evidence based.
The cover and the stand are included. We have the manual, but no service book, however there are lots of receipts. There are two keys. Remember this bike has only done 4500 miles since a full rebuild.
It is sublime to ride, has monster torque, is hugely rev-able, has suspension to float over UK roads and steering that is pinpoint. It also sounds like thunder, popping on the overrun just enough to let people know you are coming.
