Please be real: 1990 Ducati 851 SP2

You’d think at a $55,000 ask, it wouldn’t be beyond the pale to ask for more than two photos of a motorcycle, but what do we know? And, be that as it may, most motorcycles are not the 1990 Ducati 851 SP2, a rare-as-rocking-horse-poo repli-racer from Ducati’s renaissance as a superbike racing brand.

1990 Ducati 851 SP2 for sale on eBay

As the name implies, this was the second evolution of the 851 Sport Production, and came with bigger valves, a 45mm Termignoni exhaust and fully-adjustable Ohlins suspension on both ends. The four-valve liquid-cooled v-twin in the standard 851 was exotic enough for most, but the SP2 mill was truly special, pushing out nigh on 120 horsepower from two cylinders at a time when that was an impressive figure from four pots.

Unfortunately, the pictures don’t do much justice to this machine, though it appears to be in very clean condition with a set of modern Michelin tires. The shot of the triple clamp matches the description’s claim that this is bike number 250.

The asking price is a little eye-watering, but you’ll be hard pressed to find another 1990 Ducati 851 SP2, and there is no doubting the heritage and provenance the bike carries.


  • Ok this has nothing to do with this bike in particular so skip this comment if that’s an issue.

    I know there are a lot of “What kind of crap ad is this?” reactions to ads like these but a lot of times the owners of things like these aren’t eBay posting experts and don’t have time to put together a beautiful ad. Anyone seriously considering the bike and willing to deal with shipping out of Germany will ask a question and go from there. I’ve bought bikes that were advertised every bit as poorly as this because the bike is what it is and the actual ad is just a starting point to open communication. Good luck to buyer and seller.

  • Billy that’s a fair point and I have also bought a few bargains from guys who didn’t know how to puff up a pretty advert -but this guy is asking serious moolah here and should expect a little stiff examination of the goods and would you fly to Germany on the strength of 2 poor snaps.?
    I certainly wouldn’t and its only a 2 hour flight from my island. I turned down a scruffy street 851 about 10 years ago for 3000 Euros and have gently kicked myself a few times since, Hindsight is a wunnerful thing.
