In the Ducati line-up from 1974-2007, the SuperSport has often been the sportiest Ducati, but more lately the second-sportiest. Using the air-cooled Desmodue when the SuperBikes had radiators and four valve heads, and often available in smaller displacements, the SuperSports often had half-fairings and a corner of the showroom away from the window. This SS has been studiously upgraded and looks like a great combination of factory design and up-market parts.
Easy on the eyes and maintenance, this 750SS has been taken into a new realm with a 855 cc engine kit. Around the light trellis frame, the 851-ish factory fairing looks great and has been augmented with carbon fenders, harmonizing with the black engine cases. Dual exhaust has been lightened with a two-into-one system. Brakes aren’t always an area of strength on SuperSports, but here the triple discs from a 996 have been mounted.
Offered by an Alabama motorsports specialty shop, who gives more details in the eBay auction:
A Desmodue Ducati which has 844 big bore kit (Fast by Ferrraci), Keihin flat slide carburetors to match the big bore kit, Two-in-to One carbon fiber exhaust, new clutch, Penske adjustable rear shock, 996 brakes, Carbon fiber front and rear fenders, Michelin Pilot tires, Regina chain, Renthal aluminum sprocket designed for more low end grunt, new seals in forks. The bike has 29,467 miles. The timing belts were changed just last year with only 500 miles since service. This is a very cool classic bike that handles great, is fast and has a deep throaty sound. It is reliable and ready to enjoy.
Reviewed as a budget-conscious 900SS look-alike, the 750 SuperSport was light and handled well with basic components, and had fairly relaxed ergonomics. This SS has been treated to a lot of recent wear parts in addition to the upgrades, and in addition to providing a lot of riding for the buck, might surprise fellow riders…
