2009 Ducati Sport Classic 1000 S
This 2009 Ducati Sport Classic 1000 S is an Australian delivered modern classic Ducati, presenting in a clean black and white colour combination. It is powered by a 992cc V-twin engine which outputs 68kW/90Nm. This power is sent through a six-speed manual transmission. This bike currently shows 13,602km on its odometer.
First presented at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show, the Ducati Sport Classic is a range of retro-styled motorcycles. They quickly ascended to cult classic status, with enthusiasts praising the bike’s café racer-style design attributes and unique riding characteristics. While it does look retro, it is a modern Ducati with modern parts, which conveniently excludes the technical disadvantages of owning an original classic piece. It has one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any bike in its period. As well, the fairing, windscreen, and headlight are all faithful to the period they’re inspired from. The Sport Classic 1000 S specifically was produced in low numbers with reportedly only 1253 examples produced. It’s a bike which most owners reserve for looking at, and riding only on weekends.
Where the Sport Classic 1000 S was originally only available in red and white, 2009 opened up the option to have it painted in black and white which this example is finished in. Few obvious modifications are seen on initial glance, but look closer to find this bike has been enhanced by a Termignoni aftermarket exhaust, new handle grips and new rear springs. It also features customised clear tail lights at the rear. The 17-inch wheels feature big discs with Brembo brakes, while the tyres fitted to this bike are Pirelli.
Built new in 2009 and complied in Australia in September 2009, this bike has remained as part of a private collection under the current ownership period. It has not been ridden since the current owner took delivery. It was last serviced by D Moto Motorcycle Engineering in Clyde, NSW in March 2021. This service included the replacement of the battery. The bike is said to be in good running order.
This bike remains in very good condition considering its age and mileage. The seller notes general wear and tear about the bike, consistent with use, though finer points of damage are seldom seen. The black paintwork appears without obvious imperfections and glosses nicely in the light, while striping and lettering shows in good order. Some minor scratching is seen on the left-hand-side of the exhaust.
This bike will be sold with the original rear springs.
