Drumming up business sometimes involves a round of badge engineering, which Ducati succumbed to in the early 1990’s with their SuperSports.  The normally venerable Sport Production designation was a bit diluted but the all-American model was graced with some carbon components and Showa adjustable suspension.  Still it’s a significant and low-production Ducati, and number 349 is from Colorado, boasts under 10,000 miles and has enjoyed factory service since it is or was owned by a Ducati dealer.

1995 Ducati 900 SS/SP #349 for sale on eBay

 

Positioned in between the Cafe Racer and Super Light, the Sport Production had the best of each, alloy swingarm, 17-inch wheels, dual seat with low-swept mufflers.  Performance was standard Super Sport with 84 hp pushing a dry weight of just about 400 lbs.  The warm silver trellis frame went well with the silver engine and swingarm, as well as the matching wheels and silver and gold decals on the red fairing.

 

Relatively low miles and no apparent damage show on the classic SS, though the discoloration of the carbon mudguards and clutch cover is puzzling – perhaps over-enthusiastic cleaning.  Surprisingly stock, this 900SS will require no un-updating by the new owner.  From the eBay auction:

This bike is one of the classic SuperSport that has a timeless look !  It starts right up and runs and sounds so good ! Bike has 9,729 miles on it.  Carbon fiber mufflers.  And is in great condition !  Bike was Senior owned by a former Ducati dealership owner.  All service was performed by his factory trained Ducati mechanics.  Feel free to ask me any questions about this motorcycle.  I am selling it for the owner and am also a Ducati factory trained mechanic.  This bike will put a smile on your face every time you ride it !  Bike is serialized number 349.

 

The 91-98 SuperSport reviewed as a two-wheeled Swiss army knife and has been successful in racing and sport-touring alike.  With not much you don’t need, the performance was crisp with the only niggle being somewhat ponderous low-speed steering.  The opening $3,800 bid hasn’t enticed anyone yet, but eventually someone will see that a new owner and proper detailing is the only thing between this SS/SP and a continued very sporty tour.

  • Clean bike, but it’s got incorrect front rotors and mirrors and there’s a ground flat spot on the right side exhaust at the leading edge. The mirrors and the rotors are no big deal at the current pricepoint (although the correct floating cast iron rotors are a big improvement) I’d be more concerned about possible crash damage as indicated by the pipe. A quick inspection of the backside of the fairing at the turn indicator lens might tell the full story.

    Still, the mileage and apparent care make this one to consider for the right buyer.

  • I have always thought these are the best sounding bikes of all time.

    • I prefer the sound of the air/oil-cooled Ducati twins to the water-cooled models, so I agree completely.
