And then there is this beauty – a 2000 Ducati 996 with just seven miles on the clock! It is estimated to sell for £12,000 to £14,000.

The Ducati 996 followed on from the glorious 916 before being replaced by the much loved 998. Ducati have produced motorcycles that leave a distinguished legacy. They are as much loved and sought after now as they were when they first appeared.The Ducati 996 played a big part in the marque’s story.

Rowan Huntley of Silverstone Auctions, comments: “This is an exceptional opportunity to own a completely unused 996, still on its original tyres with only delivery miles. It is truly amazing how this bike has been kept unused since 2000. Finding low mileage bikes always surprises me, this being no exception as it looks like its been ridden straight out of a time machine.”
