Good morning everyone,
I'm a new Italian member of the Ducati.org forum:yo:!

I would like to know if you have information on which is the most rare Ducati..

My Dealer told me that Ducati has built only 73 worldwide of the 1198R Corse SE. Have you some information about that?

Thankssss

I got curious, googled around for a while:

Of the 916 SPA there's supposedly only produced 50.

Or if you fancy an older model Ducati Berliner 1260 Apollo which should only 2 produced

Only 12 Ducati 888 SP4 produced

1996 Ducati Foggy Rep 996 SPS WSB homologation only a couple in UK

67 pcs Ducati Supermono

25 pcs 1978 Ducati 900 NCR

12 pcs 1959 Ducati 175cc F3 Production Racer

If it was homologated then i believe the magic number is a minimum of 500 units available to the consumer worldwide. Someone correct me if I am mistaken please.
That is correct for the current number (assuming homologation is for WSBK) for homologation. There was a time when far less was required so back in the 90s there were fewer built to qualify for WSBK homologation. At one point 50 was the number (I think!) and a little later, 100 was the required number. Then there was a different number for small batch manufacturers like Bimota. I don't remember what years that was the case. It was 2000 for a little bit, then 1000 and reduced to 500 for this year.

WSBK Homologation Requirement Numbers Halved - Asphalt & Rubber

Return of the Superbike homologation special: what happens in 2017? - Bikesport News

The last link states the current rule of 500

Sure.. and they told me that only 73 worldwide and 26 in Europe...

but Iwould like to know the opinion of some Ducati owners in different forums if the 1198R would be a good bike also for investment considering that is the last "traliccio frame" and last "Testastretta engine" and the production is only 73...

Depends on your location and price.

In the US, the last sold 1198R Corse I can think of sold for ~$25,000 with about ~4K miles. I know of one in Japan selling for $50K and about ~2K miles.

I wouldn't think it's a good investment value stateside.

I still think the Bayliss 1098R holds better value. Since Bayliss was very successful with that era.

Checa needs his own version as well..

P.S.: I can't afford either one lol

Depends on what kind of ROI you are looking for. As most motorcycles tend to decline in value over time, it's a risk. It also depends on how much your investment is. If you invest $25K and the potential for return is $50K after 10 years then the ROI is excellent. However, if after 20 years, your return is but $27K-$30K then there are probably better investment opportunities.

If you are buying it because you love it, love the fact that it is the last of the breed, then just buy it and forget about investment. If you want to invest, I hear the DOW and NASDAQ are going bonkers at the moment, so maybe property might be the better choice. Maybe become a venture capitalist and fund some new app...early Snap investors just made a killing on their investments. As investments go, motorcycles are a poor choice, exceptions being obvious.

the one for $25K in US was really trashed on track with loads of standards bits changed to aftermarket, so i am actually surprised it was sold at asking price.

2 years ago 1198R was sold in UK for £30K
