Multiple collectors are interested but i'm looking for the best deal.)wikipedia regarding the 999s: "2005 ducati 999s won the maxisport category for the prestigious international masterbike 2005 ... Received critical acclaim ... Mcn ... 'simply the best v-twin on the planet'... Motorcycleusa. Com ... 'stupendous' ... 'the epitome of v-twin power.'motorcyclist online: "the 2005 ducati 999, in particular, would represent the nameplate's height of critical acclaimthis is not the 999s. This is the superior, racing version, the 999r. This is a piece of motorcycle history. Considered by some to be the finest bike ever made. The 2005 999r had a production run of 200 units. That means there are only 200 of these bikes on the planet! (the minimum number required to qualify the bike for use in production superbike races.) this one has been kept in excellent condition by an experienced motorcycle enthusiast with multiple ducatis. The 999r model of the 2005 ducati 999 has the most powerful testastretta engine. It pumps out 150 horsepower and 86 lb-ft of torque; and it has larger intake valves, longer bore and shorter stroke. Each engine on the 2005 ducati 999 is hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission. Due to its racing orientation, it is lighter than the other two models: 11 lbs. Lighter, to be more precise. Each 2005 triple nine has a fuel tank that can hold up to 4. 1 gallons (15. 5 liters) with a 0. 8-gallon (3-liter) reserve. The 999r uses titanium valves both on intake and exhaust, as well as titanium connecting rods, and requiring ducati to use special valve seats and guides. This saves considerable weight. Numerous changes have been made to every part of the bike making this model lighter, faster, and more powerful. Forged aluminum alloy wheels, more sophisticated engine ecu, and much more.
