I was inspired by a post on here to find out as much as I can about my 916. It's a humble Biposto MY 95 although very early 95 so all the plastic is mid to late 94. Anyway I contacted Ducati via their website on Wednesday quoting my VIN, asking for any information they have on the bike. Within 2 hours I had a phonecall from Italy explaining they can give me as much as they know but need pictures of the VIN, logbook and my ID, all backed up by a Email too. I provided the requested pictures later that day and got a reply almost instantly that they would pass it on to the relevant department. The next day I received a Email with all the information. When and where my bike was built, what model/spec it was, who the importer was and when they took delivery. Confirmation that the engine is the one it left the factory with and when it was sold and first registered. They also offered a PDF of the owners handbook for the exact specification. What a fantastic service!
