2001 Ducati ST2 from United States of America
The best, most comfortable and fun 2 valve Ducati you will find when properly setup and maintained
Steering bearings and gas tank leak at hinge seam fixed by the previous owner.
Broken clutch push rod from an alternator nut coming loose. Replaced the complete clutch at the same time.
Stator wiring and connector.
Rear wheel bearings.
Right front caliper seized pistons. Calipers not supported at this point in time. Replaced both calipers and discs as well as stainless braided lines. Up to date Brembo 4 piston calipers.
Replaced headlight assembly with Ducati Design assembly.
Had this bike for 11 years now. Came with performance chip, carbon cans, Sargent seat, and higher touring wind screen. Added Ducati Design head lamps and 1 inch 7 degree risers. Pirelli Angel GT tires work very well for me.
At 64 I can still ride as long or far as I want. Comfortable 2 up, forgiving handling, and linear power delivery I have not experienced on any other bike I have owned or ridden. The 2 valve motor in itself has never had a problem, has tons of torque, can go as fast as I care to, and is less dollars to maintain.
Averaging all costs for various repairs and maintenance, I don't find them to be any more or less than other motorcycles.
A lot of people think this is a current model Ducati. It still looks that good.
I love it, my wife loves it, and it always puts a smile on my face.
I'm keeping it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
