Yes, it is a very rare bike you have there especially since it has been at least a decade old.

It could fetch at least $400-$500 on ebay, as I've seen before.

We run into the old RTR vs. kit debate here -

The Ducati comes ready to run, with charger and everything. So it's a bargain, but if you want speed you'll have to swap out the motor and ESC, and most likely the batteries and charger.

The FM-1e R1 is cheaper, but comes without electronics. Use the extra money to buy the better ESC and motor off the bat.

If you really want to race others I recommend getting the Nuova Faor kit - the parts are generally better than the previous two. Again this comes without electronics.

But bottom line is that if you own a transmitter and receiver already, I suggest you don't get the Ducati.

Hi,
I have ordered parts from Live Performance for the DWA bike, but I haven't talked to him for sometime.
Here are some photos from Mr. Ken Harper. one of his bikes has a four stroke engine.
He makes parts for the bike and he was the distributor for DWA bike.

All Photos are from KEN HARPER!
