Ducati 900SS FE For Sale

Our latest Featured Listing is this very clean and original Ducati 900 Supersport Final Edition. This was the last year for the air-cooled SS before the restyled and fuel injected models were released. These were the only Supersports to get the silver paint and they also came with many bits from the Superlight model like the solo seat, high pipes, and carbon fiber additions. The Supersports of this era don’t necessarily impress on paper but ask anyone who has ridden one and you’ll almost always hear stories of fond memories. They have enough power to get the job done quickly, handle in a very steady manner, and are comfortable enough for long journeys (I’ve done plenty myself!) If you’ve been waiting for a nice one that is barely broken in, read on to the seller’s description below and then contact the seller via email with offers over $7000.

1998 Ducati 900 Supersport Final Edition

This listing is for Ducati’s 900 Super Sport Final Edition. I’m the second owner of this collectible and limited edition example of Ducati’s classic Super sport chassis and body design. Mileage is 5800 and I took the liberty of having Northern Ohio Ducati and Triumph complete the 7500 mile service on the bike and inclusive of new battery, carb rebuild and sync, belt replacement, Ducati Performance slave cylinder, new tires, new spark plugs, check of chain tension and alignment and fresh oil and filter. You will find that the records are meticulous and up-to-date.

There were only 300 of these examples manufactured (for the U.S., 800 world wide. -dc) and this is #258 #265 as displayed on the badge on the upper triple tree. The paint is near flawless but there are a few blemishes to point out: small paint chip underneath the headlamp and another on the right cowling (only noticeable if you look under the bike to inspect). I do have matching paint from Colorite (provided by the original owner) to attend to the affected area. Never crashed or damaged whatsoever. The FE came with all the SP upgrades like carbon fiber, performance aluminum swing arm, dual floating front race brake package plus the unique single seat tail and the hard-to-find high exhaust configuration. This is a stocker example except for the dark smoke windscreen. I do not have the original windscreen but they are available. There are two fine scratches on the left muffler but non-visible at a three-foot distance.

The Final Edition has no issues with frame or swing arm complications associated with earlier model Ducati Super Sports

Bar risers would make this the perfect bike for the curves as well as extensive trips. This could certainly be an outstanding collectible Ducati for the new owner. I find myself staring at it often, weird as it sounds, but the design is a thing of beauty. I have ridden it less than 200 miles and it’s one of the most responsive, best handling bikes that I’ve ridden. Without question, it’s sound and feel is unmatched.

Thank you for viewing my listing. No disappointments here. This is an incredible find in central Ohio. I purchased the bike from AZ, sight unseen, and I’ve been thrilled with it ever since.

Here’s another 2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR up for sale..

Here’s YET another super low mileage (1434 miles) 2008 Ducati Desmosedici D16RR up for sale.

While the Desmosedici MotoGP rep is definitely a very sexy bike and its glorious exhaust note will make many grown man cry, the sheer number of D16RRs that we have seen listed for sale lately makes me wonder if it still falls into the “rare” category.  Nevertheless, here’s another for sale from Ducati specialist Pro Italia Motorcycles:

Factory service and warranty until February 2011. Clear bra protection installed along with DP carbon hugger fender and axle sliders. 1434 miles. $44,000

At $44,000, this one has got to be one of the lowest – if not THE lowest – priced D16RRs that I have seen (click here to see the list of D16RRs previously for sale). The price of these have been dropping like flies lately, which according to Dan’s comments, is because of known engine problems and very high maintenance costs.  Which makes me wonder – what will the price of a D16RR be a few more years down the line? Hmm…maybe I can pick one up as a living room display for around $15,000 a couple of years from now?

However, if you want something that’s low maintenance, just as fun to ride (if not more!), and with (relatively) low depreciation value, how about a very clean limited edition Ducati 900SS FE (#299)?

1998 Ducati 900SS Final Edition With 6,680 Original Miles #156 Of 300

This is a fabulous looking, low mile, 900SS FE at a market correct price!  Located in Seattle, Washington is a 1998 Ducati 900SS FE with 6,680 original miles.  This bike has been recently services with a nice, and thorough, write up describing the bikes history as known to the owner.  Recent service includes a valve adjust, new belts, bled clutch and other regular maintenance items.  The seller states that there are some light/small scratches on the bike and the carbon fairing has started to dull.  The only maintenance item the bike has is a neutral light that is out.  The modifications are limited to a Fast By Ferracci exhaust with a carbon silencer and a Evoluzione clutch slave.  The bike shows very well in the photos and supports the claims of the seller.  There were only 800 of these produced world-wide with 300 coming to North America.  I find these to be much more visually appealing than the generation that followed.  See the bike on Craigslist here.

1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight!

Now this gets me excited – a rare 1993 Ducati 900SS Superlight with 42,000 miles for sale in Sacramento.

I have a preference for Ducati’s Supersport (over the Superbikes) as they make better “real world” street bikes with a good dose of old world charm and character from the air-cooled lump.  Of the Supersports, the two most desirable models are the 900SS FE Final Edition as it is the most refined of the air-cooled SSs; the other is the first year (1993, for the US at least) 900SS Superlight, with the signature white frame and 2-piece Marvic wheels:

1993 Ducati 900 SS Superlight, one of 300 that were imported for sale by the orginal owner for only $5,000. This bike has been well cared for. It has Fox shock, forks revalve by Aftershocks, stainless steel brake lines, Corbin seat, has only 42,000 miles. This bike is in excellent shape.

I think the 1993 Superlight is one of the best looking Ducati’s ever, and at $5000, it’s a lot cheaper than other SL’s on the market.  Granted, the mileage is quite high on this one, but if the bike is in good condition then it would be a nice addition to any collection.

Check out previous 900SS SL listings on RSBFS.  Oh, here’s the link to the ad: 1993 Ducati 900SS SL for sale in Sacramento. Enjoy!
