They had one of those on the Harris stand at the NEC a few years back. They let me pick it up. It weighed nothing.

Just noticed that 749R has Maxxis tyres on it. Why would you do that?

They send me emails now and again ahead of what they post online.

Just arrived, this stunning 2004 Ducati 749R, the much sought after 2004 model with carbon fairings. 12015 miles. This head turner is fitted with a long list of high end mouth watering accessories including the all important Termignoni open pipe exhaust for that famous Ducati sound. Available to view in store. £8495.00

It's hardly run-in with that mileage.

Or rather....that's about exactly what you'd want to see on it....run-in, but not run-down.

I very much like the carbon exhaust cover with the vents in, may have to look to see if I can get my hands on one of them for the 999.
