DesmoNue – 1993 Ducati 900SS

Ducati has carved out an enormous niche in the super-sport area, with some compromises on the sporting intentions of their superbikes, but often more versatile and plenty of fun.  This 900SS was parked after a year or so of use and recently re-incarnated, a happy beginning to its next chapter.

1993 Ducati 900SS for sale on eBay

A descendant of the 851 and Paso, the 900SS uses the 904cc desmodue, with belt driven cams.  Mikuni carburetors were less fiddly and helped deliver 84 hp.  Adjustable Showa dampers were a nice upgrade and ergonomics were relaxed a bit.  The full fiberglass fairing has the classic Ducati lines.

This Cali SS looks unblemished by its 5,049 miles or the long nap.  Though it's not a limited edition or racy example, refreshed it looks like a new 1993.  The owner shows off the clean in un-faired photos.  From the eBay auction:

Found this in a garage in Lafayette California. And hadn't been run since 1995
Replaced Timing Belts
Flushed the tank, cleared the lines, New Fuel Pump and filter
Rebuilt the Carbs with OEM parts
New Tires, Battery, flushed the brake lines, oiled the cables
Soaked the Chain and Re-oiled
Cleaned, Cleaned and CLEANED AGAIN!!
It Runs and Performs AMAZINGLY!!! AND FAST!!!!

Reviewed as an all-day performer, the 900SS had classic good looks and at the time was called Ducati's best ever.  Maybe a memory lane trip for the next owner, or picking up dad's bike ?  Obviously not new new, but instead of 25 this one looks just a few years old...

Racer Replica: 1995 Ducati TT2 Replica for Sale

The original listing for this 1995 Ducati TT2 Replica includes some good general information, but I'd love more specific details about the components. The seller mentions the frame was supplied by Roy Thersby, but did he build the frame, modify the frame, or just paint it? At a glance, it appears to be from a 90s SuperSport, which makes sense, considering the rest of the running gear. So it appears that what we're dealing with here is a fully-built 90s 750SS with brilliant retro-bodywork and paint. And headlamps. Those massive, retina-burning headlamps.

The original TT2 that inspired this build was a lightweight, Pantah-powered racebike displacing 597cc with a Verlicchi frame and Marzocchi suspension. Built between 1980 and 1984 the bike was very successful in competition and ultimately spawned the Ducati F1 road bike.

The engine in this replica is a 750, but it's looks to be the 90s version, since both carburetors live in the engine's vee: the 80s Pantah-engined bikes had both facing rearward, with the vertical cylinder's jutting out awkwardly towards the rider's knee. And the wheels are clearly 17" parts, in keeping with the 90s theme. Great for finding modern, sticky rubber, but not the most authentic-looking, if that's the goal, since the original used 18" hoops. And why choose non-adjustable front forks on this bike? Even set up properly, I'm surprised the builder didn't at least use the adjustable units available on certain 900SS models, since the upside-down forks give the game away anyway that this isn't really an 80s race bike.

Not doubting the craftsmanship, but there are some other choices I'm not big on, starting with the Koso instruments. I'm sure they're reliable and legible, but I don't really like them on recent Bimotas and I really don't like them on a retro-looking special. Something classic from MotoGadget would have given similar function with a much more appropriate look. The bar-end signals are a cool touch, but a bit too shiny for my taste and the grips and Union Jack tank pad are way too modern. And the M4 exhaust is perfectly fine on a GSX-R750 but a "classic" Ducati? But all that is relatively easy to change to suit the new owner's preferences anyway.

If it sounds like I don't like this bike, you'd be wrong: I'm really just picking nits and all of these minor issues are easily forgotten, looking at the red-and-yellow bodywork and those awesome endurance-racing headlamps. And although the listing doesn't go into too much detail regarding the engine, the Pantah engine can be tuned to make good power and, in a lightweight package, should make for a very entertaining bike.

From the original eBay listing: 1995 Ducati TT2 Replica for Sale

For the Ducati connoisseur, this beauty will enhance any collection. Frame came from British Ducati legend Roy Thersby. The bike was built by vintage Ducati guru Scot Wilson as his personal ride. Scot is the owner of Italian Iron Classics in Tucson, AZ. I've had the pleasure of owning a couple of Scot Wilson's builds and they are very carefully planned and meticulously executed.

The 750 engine was built by Tom Hull of Phoenix to "Pro-Thunder" standards with Carrillo rods, dual spark, lightened internals and all the special bits you'd expect. The engine was moth-balled after a rule change, acquired for this build and has about 1,000 miles on it. 40mm Del Ortos, fork set by Computrack. GP shift but could be changed. The bike was just serviced, all fluids changed, fuel tank cleaned, carbs cleaned and carefully checked over. It's ready to go.

The bike is street legal, has a clear Massachusetts title and goes like crazy. Headlights are Hella style as used for endurance racing. Bar-end turn signals are installed so the bike will pass my state registration inspection. The paint is as good as it gets and looks as fresh as the day it came from the painter's shop. If you are looking at this bike I don't have to tell you about Ducati F1-R's or TT2's. I've had the opportunity to do a (very careful) track day at a Ducati event and the bikes gets lots of attention. If the track's not your thing you could proudly show it at any event and it would draw a crowd.

While undeniably cool, bikes like this are always tricky when it comes to determining value. They're not collectible in the conventional sense, in that they're not real race bikes or limited-production factory machines: they've been built using high-quality components, but they're basically really nice lash-ups, "bitsas" made from the very best bits. Of course, a real TT2 would likely sell for far more than the $22,500 the seller is asking, and considering the quality and names attached, I'm thinking this is a pretty damn good deal as long as the lack of originality doesn't bother you, and you're ready for the snobs to give you static when they ask you "is it real?" But honestly, if anyone gives you a problem, you should just blind them with those massive Hella lamps.

Featured Listing – 1991 Ducati 851 S3 FBF Replica

Update 7.31.2018: Price reduced to $12,000 USD or best offer. Good luck to buyers and seller! -dc

Ducati's four-valve foray, the WSBK-winning 851 desmoquattro is destined for collectibility.  Meanwhile the Weber fuel-injected superbike is a rideable feast.  Rare as 851's are stateside, this Ferracci replica is 1,000 miles closer to Oz than JFK, and may interest collectors anywhere on the globe.

1991 Ducati 851 S3 FBF Replica for sale

Ducati put together a complex basket for all their eggs in the 851, fuel injection, water cooling, and four-valve desmodromic heads.  The package claims 110 hp, but the brilliant torque is the stuff of legend.  Big Showa suspension and big Brembo brakes are at the end of the trellis frame.  A generous windshield guards the rider stretched over the long tank.  If you have a sporty pillion there is a spot under the beauty cover.

Robbie's 851 looks quite good and substantially stock.  Recently serviced after an extended hiatus, it has clean injectors, new cam belts and tires. 

From the seller:

This very rare jewel is being offered for sale to enthusiasts and collectors by the present owner.  Qualified people will understand the rarity of this exceptional motorcycle.  This bike is in very good condition.  Runs like a train!  Has recently had new tyres & cam belts fitted.  Due to extended storage the complete EFI system has been refurbished, the bike has received a complete service and tune up by the experts.

The bike is completely original and unrestored. Well maintained and never dropped. Also features Tecnomagnesio wheels and, fully adjustable Showa fork and Ohlins rear shock.

Bike is located in South Africa.

The 851 divulges its racing heritage, being much more comfortable in a fast sweeper than in a "technical" corner.  In the hands of the factory race team, it had a great career and won the Superbike World Championship in 1990, with the very similar 888 taking the honors in 1991 and '92.  Robbie asks $12,000 USD or best offer and requests offers on 27-82-410-0787 or e-mail - here - .

Trick Track Single: 1995 Ducati Supermono for Sale

Some bikes take time to find their audience, but the Ducati Supermono was always going to be a classic. Created to compete in the Sound of Singles race series that supported World Superbike in the mid 1990s, the Supermono was a bit of a throwback to Ducati's past: a pure racebike with exotic components, quality suspension, some very innovative technology and, as the name suggests, just one cylinder.

Single-cylinder engines are lightweight, torquey, and mechanically simple, which makes them ideal for offroad applications and economic commuters. But they aren't all that suited for modern sports motorcycles, since vibrations caused by one cylinder limit maximum revs and therefore horsepower, and can be more than a little unpleasant for the rider at sustained high rpm, unless numb hands and blurry vision are your thing.

Ducati had a solution and, as is typical of companies with limited resources, it made use of as much existing hardware as possible but with an interesting twist. The new engine used most of the liquid-cooled, four valve v-twin engine from the 888 and 916, but with the rear cylinder blanked off, which seems simple enough. But here's the twist: a dummy connecting rod was fitted to approximate the force of a second piston and connecting rod of the missing vertical cylinder.

Ducati ended up with a 549cc single that could rev to 11,000rpm happily and made 65hp with a dry weight of 267lbs, although a larger, 572cc version came along in 1995. Brakes were the same as the much heavier 916,  so stopping power could be considered adequate and the bike handled as well as you'd expect. The bike was liberally sprinkled with carbon fiber: the gauge cluster, fuel tank, rearset brackets, and the self-supporting rear subframe were all made from the material. Engine cases, triple clamps, and wheels were all lightweight magnesium.

From the original eBay listing: 1995 Ducati Supermono for Sale

Probably one of the most collectible sport bikes of this generation, enter the Ducati Supermono racer. This 1995 model is one of only 25 produced in 1995. Total production from 1993-1995 was 67, rare. The most unique attribute is the way Ducati did the motor, using an 888 Corsa motor and counterbalancing system consisting of a second attached to a lever pivoting on a pin fixed in the crankcase, hence the name "doppia bielletta" [double con rod].

This is a one-owner bike out of a 60+ bike private collection. Original bill of sale, docs, etc. The bike is in stellar condition.

Approximately 67 were made between 1993 and 1995 and, as you'd expect from the mission statement, most were raced, and quite successfully: it pretty much dominated any class where it was allowed to compete. Styling was by Pierre Terblanche and is pretty much perfect: lean and efficient and spartan. You can clearly see the influence this design had on the revised 900SS, but the style doesn't quite translate: on the Supermono it looks clean and technical and light, but on the Super Sport it looks fussy and contrived. So what price perfection? Well this one has an eye-watering $149,000 starting bid, which shockingly seems a pretty fair place to start, considering what other examples have sold for.

Featured Listing: Carbon-Bodied 2002 Ducati MH900e for Sale

Update 8.12.2018: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Italian bikes are sometimes accused of putting style before function, but I think it's more accurate to say that they prioritize performance and style over comfort and practicality... But in the case of the Ducati MH900e, style was far and away the most important priority, and everything else came after. Penned by Pierre Terblanche, the MH900e was meant to evoke Mike "The Bike" Hailwood's race-winning Isle of Man TT NCR-prepped machine and the replica MHRs that followed. The "e" at the end of the name was for "Evoluzione" as the bike is the spiritual successor of those storied machines.

The MH900e's concept bike looks are wild and impractical, but its beating heart is Ducati's long-serving oil and air-cooled two-valve L-twin. Displacing 904cc, the twin pumps out an honest 75hp at the rear wheel along with respectable midrange torque. It's obviously not a powerhouse, but the 410lb machine has Ducati's race-bred frame geometry and quality suspension at both ends. The riding position is committed, with a long reach to low bars over the tank, high rearsets, and a tall seat that requires long legs if you want to put your feet flat at traffic lights.

Frankly, there are just two things really stopping the bike from being a great back-road bike like the later Sport Classics: the brutal ergonomics and the insane, Harley Sportster-sized fuel tank. The ergonomics you can justify, but the tiny, 2.2 gallon tank means about 90 miles between stops, even with the two-valve twin's surprisingly decent mileage. It's a little shocking, since the bike looks like it'd have a generously-sized fuel cell, but most of what you're looking at is apparently an airbox.

Luckily, California Cycleworks makes a much larger 4.6 gallon unit that doesn't require any permanent modifications to the bike to install. It appears to still be available and would make the bike much more practical. With just 2,000 produced between 2001 and 2002, they're rare and valuable enough that most seemed doomed to a life as display pieces, but that's a shame, considering the excellent handling, solid reliability, and easy-to-service engine.

It is unfortunate that the original bodywork and other parts don't seem to be included, but the Ducati Performance panels are obviously an appropriate modification and look great, even if exposed carbon fiber reduces the visual ties to the red and silver of the original NCR bikes. The bike also includes a set of Staintune exhausts that look very similar to the stock system but let the bike sound more appropriately Ducati-ish. Considering the prices of Sport Classics these days, the $19,800 $18,000 asking price seems pretty reasonable, and is in line with other examples of the MH900e that we've seen lately.

Track Day Exotic: 2015 Pierobon X60R for Sale

I've spent some time poking around the Pierobon website, realizing that I will likely never own a Pierobon-framed track bike. As the seller mentions in their listing, this Ducati 1200DS-powered Pierobon X60R is one pricey piece of kit: the earlier F042's frame alone goes for about $3,500. And that's before you add a swingarm, fuel tank, appropriately snazzy suspension components, lightweight wheels, brakes, some minimalist bodywork... Oh yeah, and a motor. Two-valve Ducatis may not have as many parts as their liquid-cooled, four-valve stablemates  but it's not like that makes fully-built race motors cheap. Sure, you could just stick a dead stock 1100DS motor in there and call it a day, but why would you do that?

Oh, I'm sorry, you're lost. You're thinking, "Who the hell is Pierobon?"

If you're a racing fan, you might have heard of them. Located in Bologna, not far from Ducati's headquarters, they're fabrication specialists that have supplied frames and subframes, as well as swingarms and fuel tanks to Ducati's World Superbike and MotoGP teams for over 50 years. These days, they make track and racebike kits like the X60R that fit Ducati's two and four-valve engines, as well as lightweight replacement frames for all of Ducati's superbikes, up to and including the Panigale. That's right, they make a lightweight frame for the frameless Panigale. So if you've decided that the Pani's monocoque is just a bit too stiff and lacking in feedback, or if you just miss that signature trellis, Pierobon has you covered there.

I've always felt that a properly-prepared air-cooled Ducati twin would be really fun in a lightweight road or track bike and apparently the two-wheeled artists over at Pierobon felt the same way. As you can see from the photos, a finished X60R is elegant, minimal, and very expensive, as it uses only the very best components available. The resulting 300lbs wet is two-stroke territory but the 120whp obviously isn't. That's a pretty killer power-to-weight ratio and the Ducati twin, although pretty far removed from the street version in terms of output, should still have pretty great midrange shove, without the need to constantly rev the nuts off it.

From the original eBay listing: 2015 Pierobon X60R for Sale

This is a very special race/track bike, one of 75 worldwide. They are all very light (312 lbs wet, w/ fuel for a 9 lap sprint, just weighed on a FIM scale) nimble and a blast to ride, feels like a 250 GP bike with Superbike power. It has all race spec Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and Marchesini magnesium wheels.

I bought this at the end of the 2016 season from a friend who had won 4 different championships with it during the 2015 and 2016 seasons and decided he wanted to buy a Suter 500 to play with. I had Boulder Motor Sports (the US distributor) go through the bike completely and prep it for the 2017 season spending over $8k to do a full rebuild and prep, this type of prep makes it basically like new. See the receipts in the pics. 

These bikes cost around $70k new as base model then up depending on the build. The motor is a Boulder spec w 120rwhp and 81ft lb tq, tuned to run on pump race 110. I have only taken it out on a few track days so its ready for a full season of racing and more. If you're just a track day junkie this will only need oil changes for years of  track use. The spec motor Brian built is super durable.   It comes with the rear stand and a extra rear sprocket for super short tracks. The gearing on it now works just about everywhere.

There is a spare brand new higher spec motor refreshed by MotoCorse available and a spare set of wheels too, these are at added cost, just inquire.

Why am I selling? I never got around to racing it as I have been focused on my other 2 Pierobon's a 848 powered X80R and a full electronic X60, I am short on space so its time to let one go. I have the reserve set at a reasonable price, fair to both. With only 75 in the world there wont be many chances to get one at a major discount from new. Just raced my 2010 spec X60 to a first in BOTT at Road America this past weekend. Cant say enough about the Pierobons and how they handle    

Pierobon is the name behind most of the racing chassis built for the Ducati factory racing team dating back to the 70's and into World Superbike along with being behind the success that Casey Stoner had on the Ducati GP bikes.

Frankly, considering how much these things cost new, the prep that's gone into it, the quality of the components, and the basically brand-new, ready-to-roll condition of this X60R, the seller's $30,000 Buy It Now price is kind of a steal. The appeal is naturally very limited though: this is a racebike with no historic value, or a very expensive, exotic track day toy. Hopefully, the right buyer will snap this one up while the rest of us consider selling organs so we can afford one of our own.
