Hi,

Been lurking here for a while and am now seeking help. Have been shopping for a 2005 or 2006 999R and think I did my research but I'm confused. I've recently talked to sellers about 3 potential bikes but something seems off.

1) 2005 999R - The VIN didn't decode correctly at: http://www.motoverse.com/tools/vin/ducati.asp. The VIN supplied is: ZDM1VB5W06B016220 I'm going to go back and verify the VIN with the seller this week. Also, the bike doesn't have a limited edition number plate on the top yoke. I thought all 999R's had this?

2) 2005 999R Xerox - This one didn't have the limited edition number plate on the top yoke either as well as didn't have the Öhlins forks with black sleeves, anodised black footpegs and top yoke. Don't have a VIN yet on this one.

3) 2006 999R Xerox - This one has the limited edition number plate on the anodised black top yoke, black sleeves on the the Öhlins forks and black footpegs. Don't have a VIN yet on this one.


Is it possible the 2005's are fakes or is there something else going on? The lack of limited edition number plate worries me. Should it?

Any expert help on this would be much appreciated. My birthday is coming up and I can't wait to treat myself. :)


Option B is either a new 1100S or a Streetfighter S. But I've always lusted after the 999R but am open to compelling and persuasive comments on why I should go for one of the Option B's.


Thanks,
Devin

Data according to Ducati's webpage
999 Production 2003-2006
999R (2003-2006)
999R Xerox (2006)
999S(2003-2006)

To my knowledge, some dealers were allowed to prep 999S to Fila/Xerox scheme.

If you want a sport bike just get the new 1198S Corsa Edition also a number bike, and if money is not an issue just get the 1198R Corse Eddition, and stop messing around fake bikes, for all the pictures you have posted this bikes are not real "R"
Send me a message and we can check I know several guys that have 999R that might be interested in getting the 1198R that may sell their old 999R
