mono motorcycles, Havant & the Ducati ‘Superbike’
mono motorcycles & vehicle security end their first year on a high, with an exclusive & very rare Ducati ‘Superbike!’ coming in to the workshop!
We have recently been introduced to Farhad at Route 67 by Chris Morris (my brother), who for the last year has been looking after some of their amazing & exclusive car collection.
Amongst the stunning collection of exotica, nestle a few exclusive & rare motorcycles. Route 67 had been looking for some time for a one stop motorcycle solution & someone they could trust to maintain & service this remarkable collection. mono motorcycles & vehicle security were then approached to become this much needed ‘one stop solution’.
The first motorcycle Route 67 have entrusted mono motorcycles & vehicle security with, is a Ducati Panigale 1199 Superleggera 2014 (SN293/500).
This motorcycle is set apart from the other Panigale range as the Superleggera 1199 2014 is a limited run of 500. The Ducati 1199 Superleggera 2014 (SN 293/500) (‘super light’ in Italian) is a tour de force in the motorcycling world. The 1199 Superleggera 2014 (SN 293/500) has over the years, captivated Ducati lovers on a global scale. She taunts them with her 200bhp, her 200 new components over the standard Panigale R, including the magnesium frame & wheels, carbon fibre seat unit, titanium fasteners, feather-light 700g lithium battery & her revised electronics. The 1199 Superleggera 2014 (SN 293/500) weighs just 155kg dry, or 166kg wet with no fuel. This astounding motorcycle epitomises the highest calibre state of the art engineering & styling, coupled with the power & torque of a World Superbike.
All 500 of the Superleggera 1199 2014 were pre sold & most, as this one, are tucked up in private collections around the globe. Not started since she was factory delivered in 2014, the instructions were to get her running, perform a service & replace the battery.
As any motorcycle which has not been used for a long period, the first thing needed was to drain the fuel tank, as the fuel had degraded & oxidised. We then replaced the oil (15w50 grade) genuine filter & all the brake & clutch fluids were replaced. Then the new lightweight lithium ION battery was fitted & it was time to fire her up. We were astonished to find upon turning the ignition that she had only done a mere nine… yes nine miles!
What a phenomenal way to end our first year here at mono motorcycles & vehicle security with the prestigious Ducati 1199 Superleggera gracing our workshop. The owner has made a suggestion that for the right price it maybe for sale, if you have a spare £50k burning a hole in your pocket then do contact us at mono motorcycles & vehicle security & we will put you in touch.
