Something Special: 1995 Ducati 900SS SP

If you are into your air-cooled, two-valve, Pantah-based Ducatis, what we have here must certainly be considered as a high water mark. Possibly slightly less collectable than a Superlight, the 900 SS/SP line continues to be sought at for what it is: a fantastic riding platform that will continue to turn heads and age well. The unique numbered badge on the headstock helps drive the rarity factor, and other than the dual seat and less cantankerous single-piece wheels, you are really looking at a bronze framed, red Superlight.

From the seller:
95 Ducati 900ss sp excellent condition. New Tires, timing belts, valves adjusted, new fuel pump, fuel lines all work performed by a professional technician. More pics available. staintune stainless mufflers. I will help shippers.

Not much by way of pictures, but the seller indicates a willingness to send more upon request. For a 900SS SP, this looks to be in great shape. The Staintune pipes are aftermarket, but likely far better sounding than the restrictive stockers. The seller indicates maintenance has been done on the machine, which is always a good sign for a Ducati. The condition of the front and rear carbon mudguards tells me that they are likely original, as this era of factory carbon utilized an epoxy-based resin that shows discoloration over time when exposed to moderate sunlight. This is not uncommon, and should not be a deal breaker. The rest looks to be an honest bike, with an ask of only $7k Buy It Now. In 10 years time that will seem like a bargain, as these bikes are keepers. Check out all of the details here. Good Luck!!

  • Some ? on this one … the dash. The speedometer needle is still a bold color of red, but the tach needle is faded to nothing? Seems weird only one would fade. The carbon fiber bits definitely past their prime. The indicator light cluster looks knocked and not well fitting. What year did these get the oil temp gauge? 96? I thought SP models had that always? The dash looks like a CR version (no oil temp gauge). Staintunes are nice, bet they sound great.

  • Good eye, Paul. Those needles do look different colors, possibly indicating one of the instruments were replaced. I don’t believe there was any difference between the SP and CR dash in ’95 – the temp gauge came a year or two later. And I’m sure you’re right about the sound. 🙂

  • I got a 1996 model year, and it has the oil temp gauge!

  • To be fair, there are additional differences to the Superlight.
    High mount exhaust
    Vented clutch cover
    Black engine cases
    Top mounted rear brake caliper (on US model in 93)
    Master cylinders with integrated reservoirs (again, US model)
    Yellow paint

  • My 95 SP doesn’t have an oil temp gauge either. I’m fairly certain that was added in 96.

    My gauge needles are both faded in a 10k original mile bike…..but my front mud guard is original and looks much better than this one.

    Also I agree on future values. I have quite a few rare and lusted after Ducatis and my SP gives me the “look backs” just as much for a tiny fraction of the cost of some of the others.
