Digital Effect – 1999 Ducati 900SS/CR

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

1999 was the first year for Pierre Terblanche’s re-style of the venerable Supersport, which despite a comprehensive set of upgrades, polarized prospective fans.  This Minne example looks excellent and surprisingly as-delivered.

                  

1999 Ducati 900SS/CR Supersport for sale on eBay

Ducati’s dual-spark 900 was all new, and though the 80 hp was just alright, the spot-on Marelli fuel injection and two plugs per cylinder provided excellent usable power in a wide band.  The charging system was updated, and the air-cooled engine loved the upper-only fairing.  Nicer components with USD Showa forks and adjustable monoshock, and Brembo P4 brakes with four piston calipers.  The gold trellis frame states its case from behind the fairing that, love it or hate it, is designed by one of the best.

Evidently presented by a recovering bike nut, this CR looks excellent with just middling miles at 11,967.  A pair of Giannelli silencers is included, not sure why they were un-mounted.  Two spots of paint damage are shown in detail, but can’t be detected in a wider shot.  The owner posted a cold start – video – and has this to say in the eBay auction:

Amazing original and all stock condition. The bike starts right up with its strong battery, and it pulls strong and clean through the rev range. Shifts are solid and smooth. There are 2 minor cosmetic blemishes that occurred during transport, and the 2 areas are clearing pointed out in 2 of the photos. 1999 introduced fuel injection to the Supersport range of bikes, and this example is the rare half-faired CR model. The bike comes with the set of Giannelli slip-on high mount exhaust that were on the bike when I purchased it. The original exhaust were included in the sale, so I put them on the bike. Bike received full Desmo service 2 years and 1000 miles ago. 4 months ago, a new fuel pump, fuel line and filter installed along with fresh oil and filter.

The new Supersport could’ve been a game changer but the styling changed more minds than the engineering, and the model took the down escalator.  Along the way the powertrain was upped to 800 and 1000cc dual sparks, both also quite rare – but the 900 is a classic Supersport displacement.  No bids yet, but even at the buy-it-now this one will provide the new owner a lot of sport for the money.
