More Super Lightness: 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight MK1

sl right sl tach

It’s apparently time to sell yellow Super Lights this month.  Number 827 is currently looking for a new garage to call home.  This one has a Canadian accent and has been breathed on a bit.

What’s the story you ask?

Up for sale is my Limited Edition 1993 900SS Superlight Mk1.  Bike # 827 out of 952 units produced worldwide with only 300 sent to the USA.  This is the geniune article and the most desirable of the Superlight that came to North America.  Only the Mk 1 bikes came with a full spectrum of upgrades directly from the factory that include full floating Cast Iron front disc brakes, Two piece Marvic/Akront 17″ Rims, Vented Clutch Cover, Carbon Fibre Front Mudguard and Rear Hugger, Carbon Fibre Slip-On Exhaust.  In addition to these very desirable factory exotic parts, the motor on this bike has been upgraded with High Compression 944 Big Bore Pistons fueled by a pair of Kehin flat side Smooth Bore Carbs.  Ohlin Front Fork Springs, Ohlin Steering Damper, Oberon Clutch slave Cylinder, Upgraded Master Cylinders with Aluminum Caps, Billet Aluminum Rearsets, Carbon Fibre Dash, Leather Corbin Seat, Zero Gravity Tinted Windshield, brand new Prirelli Corsa Tires and much more.

This is a bike that has been totally sorted out with an impressive array of performance upgrades and improvements over the stock bike.  This bike rewards riders who appreciates mechanical perfection; you would want to ride this one and not just admire her beauty.  The body work on the bike is a 9.5 out of 10 and the bike has been maticulously maintained and tuned.  This is the fastest air cooled 900SS I have ever ridden and she runs, sounds and handles as good as she looks.

Help me out Ducatists;  I keep reading that only the 1992 (MK1) Superlights had the cast iron brakes, vented clutch cover and two piece Marvics yet it seems every 93 (MK2) I see has them as well.  Did North America get them a year late?

Hmm, it doesn’t weigh much at all and it has  more go compared to stock.  That should make for a lot of smiles on a twisting road.

Sign me up;  a limited edition, light weight, some extra go and classic Ducati styling.

  • Someone else may be able to correct me, but from what I recall, the US only got the Mk1 Superlights, and only came in yellow, where as the Mk2’s with the one piece wheels, came in red and where in Europe.

    The 944 kits are standard fare and nothing to worry about, but they do improve the bike. The flat sides are fickle though and foul easily. You’ll also want to check on what tuning was done. This bike has the very cool Pro Italia rear sets. I think it’s worth probably around 10. The seller mentions the one that sold for 15, but I think that was way over valued so what do I know.

  • I wonder if he has the original mufflers, seat and foot pegs. Those parts are often damaged in low side crashes. Contrary to what Ben said, I’ve found the Keihin flat slides to be very reliable and problem free. It won’t go fast with $9,000 not even meeting the reserve.

  • Regarding the 92, 93 model year issue: You’ll find that a number of North American MK1 Superlights are licensed as a 93 but have a late in the year 92 manufacturing date. They are true MK1’s but by the time they made it to North America, sat at the dealership for some time and were eventually sold and licensed it was 93. So these MK1’s manufactured in 92 ended up with a 93 license date.

  • There we go, Greg is the man! Thanks for sharing Greg.
