#17 out of the 200 Ducati 999R FILA editions ever producedby Punya Sharma, on
Ducati has had an illustrious racing career (which is still going strong) and has always celebrated its success with gorgeous special edition models. Case in context here is the Ducati 999R FILA edition which came out to mark the company’s 200th win in WSBK.
Accordingly, only 200 examples went into production throughout the world, making it an exquisite, hard-to-get affair. Lucky for you, though, there’s one available at Iconic Motorbike Auctions waiting for you to take it home, flaunt around, and cherish forever.
2003 Ducati 999R FILA Edition On Sale At Iconic Motorbike Auctions
The 999R FILA edition was the top-of-the-line Ducati in its time and took inspiration from the company’s WSBK race bike. Consequently, it focused on extracting every ounce of performance and came with carbon fiber fairings wrapped in a gorgeous FILA livery. The livery comprised umpteenth sponsor stickers all around the body, race number graphics, and color-matched Marchesini alloy wheels (red upfront, blue outback).
Aesthetics aside, the 999R FILA edition pumped out 140 horsepower and 108Nm, 15 horsepower more than the standard 999. Plus, the motorcycle you see here also has a full-system Termignoni exhaust, so expect an added boost in performance, not to mention an epic exhaust note.
Like all other aspects, the 999R’s underpinnings were top-tier too. It boasted adjustable Ohlins TiN USD forks, an adjustable Ohlins monoshock, and Brembo radial calipers up top, all held together by the red-black trellis frame.
Also, this particular bike went through a thorough service at Iconic Motorbike Auctions and reads 3,761 miles on its digital odometer. You should also know that there are a few minor blemishes here and there, but none of them are deal-breakers.
