I am delighted to have sold this outstanding and official – “Ducati 998S Bostrom replica”, built to honour the American racer’s many successes on the Ducati racing machines in the World Superbike series during the early 2000’s.
For anyone who is not already in the know, Ben Bostrom always raced under the number #155, so Ducati decided to honour their rider with a Limited Edition production run of 310 Bostrom replica’s for the global markets, splitting these evenly with 155 going to his home market in the US and the other 155 to the rest of the world, with each bike displaying its individual number on a headstock plaque and all hand signed by Ben Bostrom on the top of the fuel tank.
Ben Bostrom raced at the time with livery of his sponsorship from the LM tobacco company; however with the tobacco industry becoming more and more a hot topic, Ducati invited Bostrom to design his own new livery for these road going replicas. The result of Bostrom’s design is a sensational blend of his racing colours and the age of old favourite of “Evel Knievel” style stars and stripes, with the beautiful pearl blue vivid agains’t the striking Ducati Rosso red and of course featuring the numbers 155 front and rear.
This 998S Bostrom Rep is an official UK bike, showing as #130 of the rest of the world editions, not to be confused with one of the USA #155 models, with these UK bike’s having a different plaque branding and a little more power due to easier emission regulations in the era.
First supplied to the UK via official Ducati importers J.H.Performance and delivered to a Mr. Newbold, it was first registered in April 2003. Having spent most of its life in a collection but carefully and meticulously maintained, it is offered for sale with a genuine 2,175 miles and in simply immaculate condition, even still wearing the original Dunlop SportMax tyres and blue rubber hand grips.
It comes complete with 2 original keys, the boxed Bostrom Rep display plaque, Service books and the Bostrom bike cover and worth pointing out that it has again been hand signed by Ben Bostrom on the monoposto tail fairing.
Surely one of the best superbike investments on the market, combined with being possibly the most charismatic design with which to adorn your office!
