DU­CATI 996

Performance Bikes (UK) - - The Garage -

'I bought this in Hol­land last year to re­place my 851, which also came from there. I was on a fo­rum and spot­ted the 851 for just £2800, which was a bar­gain. As we are in the EU there are no im­port taxes so I hopped on a plane with my lid and kit and rode it home! It was so easy that I kept an eye on the dealer’s web­site and when this 996 popped up I went back over and rode that home, too. It cost me just £3500, and road reg­is­ter­ing it in the UK cost less than £100 as all I needed was to in­form the DVLA, fit a speedo and tweak the head­lights via a sim­ple mod.’
