Classic. The very definition  of Ducati Iconic.  But more like twice the price + they mention for real ones with correct numbers in good condition....

The wheels are in motion and the music is cued up for MidAmerica Auctions’ 22nd Annual Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction and Races on Jan. 10-12, 2013, at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

We have attended this series of auctions (in the past there have been as many as three going on during the three day event) and have found it to be an event above and beyond the auction itself.  Lots of great bikes to see (and buy) and plenty of other gearheads to meet up with, it's a pop-up museum of sorts. Add to the mix that it's scheduled during the big yearly electronics industry convention CES so the world's media is on hand, Vegas is hopping and the people watching is superb....

In Las Vegas, a gamble on BMW's Kompressor and McQueen's Husky - AutoWeek

In Las Vegas, a gamble on BMW's Kompressor and McQueen's Husky - AutoWeek | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

The anonymous Japanese collector was upset. The rare BMW Kompressor Rennsport, the finest pre-/postwar machine that he had listed, wasn't going for what he wanted. Five hundred thousand dollars he wanted. Half a million bucks! And that wasn't even the value at which the motorcycle had been appraised. The catalog had said “…all the way up to $600,000.” For a motorcycle to go for six figures was stratospherically rare; the last motorcycle that had sold for that much was a 1929 Brough-Superior SS100, one of only 69 made, the Rolls-Royce of motorcycles, only better. It had gone for $456,799. He must have known that. Yet his face was downturned, a mixture of ambivalence and veiled disappointment. The bids on his beloved machine were now stuck at $380,000. He expected higher. He expected the full six hundred. It'd be foolish for him to want any less.Read more: http://www.autoweek.com/article/20130123/carnews01/130119933#ixzz2IuzdoGRW

We love motorcycle auctions for the drama and spectacle. Here's a link to LOTS of photos from the three Vegas auctions last spring. Many Ducati's, some will surprise you. http://tinyurl.com/aglgrqn

Well hopefully not. That Die Hard guy can TEAR UP some stuff, but with 285 original miles and currently at $3250. US  it's hard to go wrong. 

Here’s your chance to give and get at the same time, and feel pretty darned good about the whole deal. Charity fundraising website CharityBuzz, as part of it’s 12 Days of Giving campaign is working with Bruce Willis who has donated his personal 2005 Ducati Multistrada to raise money for the Boots Campaign and to show his appreciation for the US Military.

Last Ducati to win a MotoGP bids to 172,430 Euros at auction | Ducati.net

Last Ducati to win a MotoGP bids to 172,430 Euros at auction | Ducati.net | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Casey Stoner’s 2010 MotoGP Ducati that won the Australian GP was bid to 172,430 euros at auction today in Monaco. The last Ducati to win a MotoGP race was being offered directly by Ducati for sale with a pre-auction estimate of 300 – 350,000 euros. No confirmation if reserve was met. It’s highly unusual for “current” factory GP bikes still sporting at least some top secret electronics and technology to be offered for sale, and the two offered in Monaco today came with numerous strings attached. Buyers interested in the two bikes were encouraged to contact the RM auction legal department before hand to review the contract in advance. Per Filippo Presiosi: More here: http://www.ducati.net/2012/05/last-ducati-to-win-a-motogp-bids-to-172430-euros-at-auction/

More for Paul Smart Week at Ducati.net...

If immitation is the sincerest form of flattery, this should make Mr. Smart smile. On offer in the upcoming Monaco RM auction from the Carlo Salterelli collection, it's constructed from period parts quite similar to the original Imola machines of which only 7 were constructed by the factory.  (The photo of the glass transporter Ductalk ran earlier this week shows the 7 bikes)   To read more on this bike check out the incredible digital catalog of the entire collection (click the headline above for the link to the catalog)
