This 2005 Ducati 749 is powered by a 748cc L-twin that is equipped with a lightweight flywheel, a racing exhaust system, and a custom tune and paired with a six-speed transmission featuring an SB Electronics quick shifter and a Yoyodyne dry slipper clutch. Custom bodywork consists of a modified front fairing and a hand-built aluminum tail section finished in silver with Italian flag graphics. Additional details include a handmade Alcantara solo seat and an adjustable Penske rear shock with a remote reservoir as well as a lightweight chain, sprockets, and rearsets. The bike was was modified by Jett Design Garage of Washington, DC in 2018 and subsequently featured on Silodrome, Iron & Air, and RocketGarage prior to its acquisition in a February 2020 BaT auction by the seller, who has since displayed it in his living room. This modified 749 is offered with a photo notebook and a clean California title in the seller’s name.


The Silver Pearl bodywork includes a custom front fairing as well as a hand-built aluminum tail section featuring a subframe with integrated taillights. Italian flag graphics are worn on the fuel tank and tailpiece. Machined billet plugs are fitted in the red frame, which matches the stitching on the handmade Alcantara solo seat.


Black 17″ Marchesini wheels wear ZR-rated Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tires measuring 120/70 front and 180/60 rear. The stock monoshock has been replaced with an adjustable Penske version featuring a remote reservoir, while the adjustable Showa forks were serviced in June 2019. Braking is from Brembo calipers with dual 320mm discs up front.


A Mupo adjustable steering damper has been installed in addition to an SB Electronics quick shifter, an electronic gear indicator, Motogadget LED bar-end turn signals, and an aluminum fuel filler cap. Instrumentation includes a multi-function display positioned below a 13k-rpm Magneti Marelli tachometer. The digital odometer shows 6k miles, 100 of which have been ridden by the seller.


The liquid-cooled 748cc DOHC desmodromic L-twin produced 108 horsepower and 59 lb-ft of torque when new, and has since been fitted with a 1.5-lb. flywheel, Sprint air filters, and an ECU tune from FasterTwin in Springfield, Virginia. A hand-built battery box and electrics cover houses a lightweight lithium-ion battery, while additional weight savings come from adjustable billet aluminum rearset foot controls. The throttles were synchronized and valve and timing belt adjustments were performed under previous ownership.


The six-speed transmission routes power to the rear wheel through a Yoyodyne dry slipper clutch and a lightweight 520 chain and rear sprocket kit. A hand-built GP-style racing exhaust system exits from under the tail section. An oil change was last completed in June 2019.
