2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000LE motorcycle.
WITH ONLY 200 ORIGINAL MILES!!!!, here is one of the nicest specimens of a Paul Smart out there. That's right, ONLY 200 miles on the clock! Lots of expensive extra parts (suede seat, fiberglass fairings, exhaust) and ALL the stock parts (seat, exhaust, etc) original paperwork, the multiple original keys, EVERYTHING.
I purchased the bike from the original owner, still crated and with 10 miles on the odometer. I rode the bike bringing the mileage up to 190 (was careful as it is in break-in period and still technically is). The bike has been sitting indoors, covered, and on a stand, but will need a battery and an oil chance /case flush and new oil.
I will ship the bike worldwide however the buyer will be responsible for all shipping and handling arrangements and charges. It is also available for viewing locally here in Los Angeles, CA. Please message me with any questions.
The bikes is for sale locally as well so I may end the auction at any moment.
Below are the manufactures specifications and details:
he Ducati PaulSmart 1000 LE (PS1000LE) is a retro styled motorcycle built by Ducati in 2006 to commemorate Paul Smart's win at the Imola 200 race in 1972, a win that helped define Ducati's future approach to racing. The bike is styled in the fashion of the Ducati 750 Imola Desmo race bike that Paul Smart rode to victory, and the 1974 750 SuperSport it originally inspired. It is one of the SportClassic series designed by Pierre Terblanche.
The bike is styled to look like a race bike from the 1970s, the rounded bubble style half fairing and café racer tail section are very reminiscent of the race winning 750 Imola Desmo. A green finished frame, outboard dampers and wire spoked rims with special Pirelli Phantom tires (featuring a retro tread pattern made exclusively for the PS1000LE) complete the look.
The PS1000LE is powered by a 992 cc (60.5 cu in) 90° V-twin cylinder, 2-valves per cylinder desmodromic, air-cooled engine with Marelli injectors on a 45 mm (1.8 in) throttle body connected to a 6-speed transmission. Ducati claimed the power output was 69 kW (92 hp) at 8.000 rpm and claimed torque was at 91.2 N⋅m (67.3 lb⋅ft) at 6.000 rpm. Exhaust gasses are directed to twin mufflers mounted high on the right side of the rear wheel.
The chassis consists of a tubular steel trellis. For the suspension, an Öhlins 43 mm upside-down fully adjustable fork is used for the front while a fully adjustable monoshock also from Ohlins is mounted on the left side of the rear wheel. Total wheelbase is 1,420 mm (56.1 in).
Fuel tank capacity is 15 l; 3.2 imp gal (3.9 US gal) which includes the 3.8 l; 0.83 imp gal (1 US gal) reserve. The claimed dry weight was 181 kg (399 lb)
