To accompany this special sale, eBay is setting up a Ducati Store with a Race of Champions theme.

Ducati says a plaque on the steering yoke will show the rider’s name and race number. His autograph will be written in indelible ink on the tank before the race gets under way. A certificate of authenticity, signed directly by Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, will give the purchase added value.

The bikes also feature a series of special components used during the Race of Champions and a complete set of original parts, exhausts included, required for legal road use.
