This rare Ducati 998S Bostrom replica comes with two miles on the odometer
Feel free to get excited, because a generous amount will make this thing yours.
It’s set in motion by a liquid-cooled Testastretta L-twin brute, which contains a belt-driven desmodromic valve system and a sizable 11.4: 1 compression ratio. The colossus of 998cc will be more than happy to generate up to 136bhp at around 10,200rpm. On the other hand, 74 lb-ft (101 Nm) of torque will be provided when the tachometer reaches 8,000 rpm.
To reach the Marchesini five-spoke rear arch, the wicked force of the engine moves via a six-speed gearbox mated to a chain-driven final drive. This fact allows the 998S to complete the quarter-mile sprint in 10.7 seconds as it accelerates to a top speed of 170 mph (273 km / h).
A steel trellis frame is responsible for holding the powertrain elements in place, resting on inverted Ohlins forks up front and a fully adjustable monoshock at the rear. Plentiful stopping power comes from two Brembo 320 mm (12.6 inch) discs and four-piston calipers at the front wheel, as well as a single 220 mm (8.7 inch) brake disc and a two-piston caliper on the opposite end.
Okay, let’s get right to the point, will you? In the photo gallery for this article you will find a replica of the 2002 Ducati 998S Bostrom that has only driven two miles (just over three kilometers). The mechanical stallion, whose fuel tank bears the signature of Ben Bostrom, is currently up for grabs on Bring A Trailer.
Right now, it would take you just under $ 23,000 to beat the highest bid, and you can do that until tonight (July 19). The bike certainly looks great, but we think it would be even better sitting in your garage – if your bank account can handle the high price, of course.
