doubt this is a real replica. the ones i have seen come with full ohlins suspension and more
That's really quite rude given that Hillsy is the guy selling this bike. And just to put you straight. The 202 homologation bikes made for the UK market ( 1 went to the factory, 1 went to Foggy and he sold it) they all came with Showa front suspension and Ohlins rear. This bike is number 26.
If you are in the US then it's very unlikely you have ever seen a single one of these bikes.

You may be confusing it with the 996SP that they put a few stickers on and released in the USA and called it an SPS ( it was not, when compared with the Euro models )

This was a bike intended purely to allow a new frame to be raced in world superbike. So they made 200 for sale, as per homologation rules

A 996 SPS is not to be confused with a 996 SPS Foggy rep. They are far from the same machine.

Kool, though it does seem like a standard 916 SPS with graphics.
With a plate on the triple clamp :confused:

Looks very much like a foggy to me. Awesome bike and would love to have.....but it's about $9 Aussie Peso's to the Pound!

Good luck with the sale - looks in great nick and good value in UK market. The bike specialist has Foggy Reps in the plus 30k pound region!

Thanks Sir. Indeed there are a few out there with sub 500 miles (even zero miles) priced at the £30K mark. These are definately collectors piece's (do look stunning as well)...

Still in two minds on the sale as she's looking fine and dandy now after a very substantial refrsh. If it goes - then fine so be it, if not i'll just have to keep it then! :smoking:

The 202 Foggy replica's were based on the 1998 916 SPS , were UK only, 1998 price was 20.150 pound and had the following additional equipment:
- Carbon fiber Seat unit
- five spoke aluminium alloy marchesini's painted black (standard 1998 916 SPS still had the three spoke wheels)
- titanium/Carbon fiber exhaust silencers with eprom to suit
- Technosel Seat
- Carbon fiber swinging arm protector
- colour matched mirror bodies (red)
- racing type paddock stand
- special key holder
- special model cloth cover
- certificate of authenticity
- model specific production number plate on top yoke (only 199 foggy replica's were released for general sale, the other three went to Hoss Elm of British importers moto cinelli, Carl Fogarty himself and to the factory's recently opened museum).

personally it looks like a stickered up 916 to me. it may be a replica but its a cheap factory replica. your paying twice the price for stickers and a few carbon parts and a certificate. i pay $30000 dollars for a bike it will come with carbon fiber everything, top of the line suspension and more. as far as i am concerned, bikes are to be ridden not sit in museums no matter what kind they are so i want my moneys worth.

I still don't think you get it. But that's ok. Is it a 916 (996 ) SPS? Yes. Does it have some bling? Yes. Could you buy a similar bike cheaper and add the same bling and still save money back then? Well no, but you could get it close.

The fact was that Ducati needed to race a bigger airbox to take advantage of wsbk rules and produce more horsepower. This required a new chassis that compensated to accommodate the airbox. It was mid season and they did so at Kyalami. But in order to race it they had to sell it, so that's why these were made ( despite rumours that it was the idea of moto cinelli, although they were closely involved in the transportation and import of the machines ). It's a homologation special that's a bit unique. They made foggy reps afterwards 150 one year and 147 the next but they were more as you describe, bling and stickers. This is a rare bike, they don't come up a lot. It was just over £20k in the UK 16 years ago. You don't pay that for a sticker job and a few carbon bits.

My honest valuation and Mark's is a little apart as if I genuinely believed that he'd take what I'd offer then it would be no longer on ebay and I'd be driving over there with a van and pound notes. She's a beautiful example of a bike that does not come up for sale a lot.


With regards to the bike specialist mentioned in previous posts. We have a little joke that he has a big wooden wheel in his office that he paints prices on and spins it when he has anything he considers a bit above rare ( as in low mileage homologation or numbered bikes, or bikes with famous owners ) He's rarely sold anything at the price he opens with.

As I said, I know where I'd be comfortable with if I were a buyer. I'm not going to make an offer though. Seems Mark could be happy enough to keep her.

:wtf: some people just dont understand the beauty and soul of these bikes. These bikes are rare, special and beautiful in many ways. Amazing to ride, and pure italian art to look at. Either way, worth it to many people.
Everyone else should stick to their cbr and gsxr, where parts are cheap, and fellow owners can appreciate your neon lights

Easy tiger there people who actually appreciate many different styles and brands of bike. Each bike has it's own soul. For comparison sake the only bike you could actually compare to a Foggy 916 would be the Honda RC30

:D
