DU­CATI 748

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Project Hunter -

If you thought the chance of own­ing a Du­cati 748 had passed you by, think again. This 748BP went for just £2300 – that’s half the price you’d nor­mally ex­pect to lay out. The seller says it’s on Jer­sey doc­u­ments so it shouldn’t be too hard to get a UK plate. That also means that dur­ing its time in the Chan­nel Isles its barely had its legs stretched. It needs tidy­ing here are there, and you’d want to put a chunk aside for belts, tyres etc. Even then it’s a steal.

That’s the cheap­est 748 I’ve seen for a while. I reckon the Jer­sey plate may have put some off. Com­ing from close to the sea can be a curse as well as a bless­ing – sea air equals cor­ro­sion. But even so it’s a less than salty price.

From the Chan­nel Is­lands. Did that put peo­ple off? If so, why?

You won’t get close to ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a proper Du­cati for this sort of money very of­ten
