Friday Forum Foraging: 2021 Ducati Supersport – With A Twist
Your chance at a cheap Ducati. You'll just need to replace the forks.
For the right person, salvage-title motorcycles can be a great hack for scoring great deals on a bike you otherwise couldn't afford. The catch is that a salvage title usually means it's been in an accident and has damage the insurance company didn't want to bother fixing.
Such is the case with this 2021 Ducati Supersport SS, found on our sister site DucatiSuperSport939.net. As the seller states, his Supersport was in a wreck and although he says "it wasn't damaged too much," you can clearly see the fork is truly bent. It's hard to know if there is other significant damage just by looking at these pictures, but the forks were enough for the insurance company to pay him out rather than fix the bike.
Now the bike is up for auction on Copart – a fantastic resource for cheap bikes that might need a little love to get back on the road. If you know your way around a wrench and can source a replacement fork (wouldn't hurt to verify the frame is straight, too), this has the potential to be a relatively cheap way to get yourself a Ducati Supersport.
As usual, we've copied the forum post below. If you want to try your hand at bidding on the bike, follow the Copart link for more information. You may be required to have certain licenses before you begin.
My totaled SS is up for auction on copart if anyone is handy with the wrench. The bike was not damaged too much but my insurance company wanted nothing to do with repairing it. Front forks are bent and mirrors gone. Runs great and no frame damage. Check it out here . Don't know what the reserve is but last bid is entered here. 2021 Ducati Supersport
