Selling VDue digital gauges that mistakenly came on a Santa Monica I recently bought. Selling to recover some of the pain I’m feeling from sourcing a new Santa Monica Gauge Cluster + ECU.

They plug into the bike perfectly fine, the dash functions and has 3,248 miles on the clock. It just obviously doesn’t have an SB8K ECU built into it, so they are useless to me.

Exterior shell is OK, could use a refresh and has some marks but nothing too bad.

PM me if interested, I’d like to share pictures and make sure we’re on the same page.

Thanks!

Hey Trev,

Send me a PM with an offer - I’m new to the Bimota world and haven’t evaluated a fair price on these things. The closer to covering the SM gauges, the better obviously for me.

Send me your email and I’ll send pics too. We’ll go through the situation and make sure we are both comfortable with the function of the gauges. I only know what I know based on function as plugged into the SM.

Hi Lucas....if you bought the Santa Clocks and ECU in them from Laura135 on ebay in GErmany....then Wow....as I know they were over 15oo euros....You'll find Trevor is cheap as chips and may offer you a smartie tube...Empty....and maybe $2....He's wasted lots of my time with cheap lowball offers over time so I dont want you to get your hopes up...

Wonder what they are really worth.
Could they be made to work on a VDue?

Or are they relegated to "garage art" status?

2Bims - No offers yet - We'll see what comes of it. I have no problem hooking up a 12V and making colorful wall art.. That's not an issue for me. The SM gauges are crazy expensive and the ones on Ebay are actually the lesser of the 2 (well below MSRP at the time, unfortunately) and are brand new. It's a tough pill to swallow but with these things being so rare, it's fairly expected. I justify it by remembering how much a modern Ducati service will run you.. If you buy a nice bike and actually ride it, it'll cost about the same for belts/valves and all the other shenanigans that go with it. Fork seals alone could run $800 on a modern Duc. Probably comparable prices to a Ducati ECU as well. Does it hurt though? Oh man....


Jaguar - The VDUE digital gauges have a redline at 11K and use the same lower electrical plugs as used on the SM. I wouldn't know what it would take to adapt these to an older model.

Again, I'm far from being a Bimota expert, so I'm relying on the knowledge of those around me and the buyer him/herself. In this case, a good Samaritan identified the differences and matched the gauges to the VDUE. I found what I could to identify the same gauges online for my own knowledge and had the idea to post them for sale. Of course, no part numbers to be found.

For those interested, check out the link below. These are the exact gauges I have (visually). Of course, I'd want the buyer to have 100% confidence prior to making a transaction.

Thanks for the tip - I did end up opening the case to make sure there weren’t any obvious signs of damage. I was also curious about the seal as I had read a segment on them previously (I think on this forum) and to my surprise, it was clean as a whistle in there. Everything in tip top shape and clean enough to eat off of. Screws didn’t have signs of previous tool marks either. I do see why we shouldn’t wash these things.
