Featured Listing: 1996 Ducati 900SS/SP

This beautiful 1996 Ducati 900SS/SP is a rare beast, being a yellow half-faired SP. Most of the time, the half-faired bikes were the lesser CR-spec model, which had lower end suspension and just weren’t quite as tasty as the SP. The SP meant you got fully adjustable Showa suspension front and rear, but the 80-ish horsepower engine was unchanged from the CR. The 900 SS/SP was also famously the bike about which Hunter S. Thompson penned the terrified, fawning “Song of the Sausage Creature.”

It’s quaint to think about an 80-horsepower machine invoking the level of terror Thompson expressed, but even in the mid-1990s a powerful motorcycle was a very different thing than it is now, and Ducati’s torquey delivery meant that terrifying velocities were much more easily accessed than they were on a peaky inline four. Theoretically, anyway. The 900SS’s party piece has always been lithe handling, a slim waistline and a certain Italian-ness that makes the big much more than the sum of its bits.

This 900SS/SP has been made even sweeter than stock, with an Ohlins shock replacing the already competent Showa, a gorgeous white powdercoated frame and a low-profile LED taillight to replace the blocky period unit.

According to the seller, whose description was handwritten, the bike was built in 2017 by Moto Motivo in Raleigh, NC. In addition to the Ohlins and the low-profile taillight, it wears carbon fenders and a carbon exhaust, cast aluminum wheels and new Brembo brakes. The seller has added about 1,000 miles since picking it up last year. The bike is on a clean Oregon title, and asking price is $6,200.

Featured Listing: 1994 Ducati 900 SS/SP with just 7,300 miles in Florida!

Update 9.15.2016: This bike is sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc


Today’s Featured Listing is a personal favorite of mine, the Ducati 900SS/SP. While the Superlight is more collectable, the SP offers almost as much performance and character, but at a much lower price point. The SP was well loved during in it’s day, as well as today, for being as sporting as needed yet comfortable enough to tour with. With it’s chattering dry clutch, distinctive v-twin with dual exhaust, and that bright red paint, the 900SS/SP is all modern classic Ducati.

The Sport Production (SP) model was a step up over the previous Supersport and CR models, featuring adjustable front and rear suspension, aluminum swingarm, wider rear wheel, full floating brakes, and nice carbon cosmetic upgrades for the fenders and clutch cover. These were only offered in the North American market and this is a very early one wearing the #012 number plate on the triple clamp.

This particular example is on offer from Nick Anglada who runs the business Used Ducati Parts. He is a long time friend of RSBFS and is well known in the community for his expertise and large stock of parts to keep our bikes running and to bring some back from the dead. I have seen many of his posts on Facebook with his latest offerings and as the saying goes, no one wants to see how the sausage is made. Numerous bikes that looked good enough to be saved are routinely broken down as sold as parts. But even for Nick, this example is too original and shows too few miles — it needs to be sold complete. It even still has all the warning stickers!

From the seller:

All original with warning decals in place. 7335 Original miles. This bike was drained a stored back in 2009. Just Serviced. Belts, battery, oil and filter, spark plugs etc. Also includes matching front tire that is not yet installed. All documentation is present including copies of the previous titles and owner’s manual. Right lower fairing has scratches from transport as well as a small ding on the top of the tank also from transport. . Any questions or comments please feel free to call or text us at 407-347-3498. International shipping available. This will be Parted Out if it does not sell by the end of this listing. This bike will not be re-listed..

At a mere $5,500 buy-it-now, this looks like a great example for anyone who’s been curious about this model or has been waiting for a stock/uncut example to appear on the market. While it has a few blems, the pictures show a bike that is ready to enjoy the rest of the season and enjoy the view all winter in the garage.

Thanks for helping to support the site with a Featured Listing and good luck to buyers and seller!

1995 Ducati 900 SS/SP #85 with Under 2000 Miles!

Ducati 900SS/SP For Sale

A favorite amongst those who enjoy blasting their favorite back roads as it is sport tourer before Ducati officially offered such a model. While it may appear tragic to some that this example has only covered 2000 miles, now is your chance to enjoy this mount as it was intended — and at a fraction of what any 2013 Ducati would cost. And it looks like this one is going to sell as the reserve appears to have been met. Bid according and enjoy this bike as it was intended!

I would never want to sell this bike ,but diabetes slows me down and it’s time for the bike to have a new owner.

1998 Ducati 900SS/FE #266 For Sale with Just 135 Miles in Oregon

Update 12.4.2012: Normally we don’t repost bikes that are relisted this quickly but after failing to meet reserve previously at $7500 bid, this bike is back on eBay with a current winning bid of $6k and 4 days remaining. Links updated and good luck to buyer and seller! -dc

eBay seller “shelbob” has had a quite of few of his bikes on our Classic SportBike For Sale website, but it looks like he’s starting to unload some of his more modern classics now (I see a MH900e and a Bimota in the background — I wonder if those will be next?)

Today’s auction is a fresh from storage 1998 Ducati 900 SuperSport Final Edition. These came with all of the 900SS/SP upgrades plus a few more exclusive goodies like the color, solo seat, adjustable levers, and a handful of small improvements in terms of reliability.

1993 Ducati 900SS/SP

For Sale: 1993 Ducati 900 SS/SP

The SP (Sport Production) variant of the 900SS offering was the upper crust of the Ducati SuperSport lineup. Consisting of the same base chassis and mechanicals of its lower echelon CR (Cafe Racer) brother, the SP included such bits as carbon fiber fenders, upgraded (and adjustable) front forks, and an upgraded rear shock activated by a linkage (the CR rear shock is direct action). The result was a much more polished SuperSport – at a much higher price.

From the seller:
17254 miles, perfect, tasteful, practical upgrades.
Yoyodyne slave, braided lines, Racetech kitted suspension front and rear, Corbin seat, new tires, all services including valves and belts done 500 miles ago.

Flatslides and DandD pipes, Dyno’d and jetted correctly.

Needs nothing, will assist w shipping.

$5200, paid a lot more….

This seller has done some significant upgrades to the bike. New slave cylinders are common, as is the Corbin seat. The Racetech suspension is a nice mod, and the belt and valve service will provide the new owner some 6,000 miles before the next major service. On the performance side, SuperSports were jetted notoriously lean from the factory (to help meeet US emissions standards), and the flatslide carbs will do a lot to wake up the potential the 900cc air-cooled twin has to offer.

The price is reasonable for the mods and the condition, and you can check it out here.

1995 Ducati 900SS/SP With 870 Original Miles On eBay

This is a low mileage 900SS on eBay!

Bike:  1995 Ducati 900SS/SP

Location:  Cincinnati, Ohio

Mileage:  870mi

Price:  $6,750USD OBO

This bike is fitted with a used FBF/Forza with some scratches, is re-jetted to match, and features a hideous fitting tank bra.  The left fairing does feature some scratches (Why no picture of the left side?) from the previous owner but is supposedly perfect, otherwise.  The seller states that they are the second owner of this 900SS.

I’ll admit, this bike sounds a bit interesting based on the sellers description; Namely, why would you purchase second hand FBF/Forza slip-ons for a 870 original mile bike?  Anyway, this is still a 870 mile bike that should be worth a look and buy barring and major mechanical/cosmetic or historical discrepancies–I would think that if you’re spending $6.7k on a bike, a $200 budget airline round-trip ticket isn’t too out of line.

No matter who you are, $6,750 is a lot of money for a 900SS/SP–and that’s including the lightweights and final editions.  The seller has ruined the fun by only offering a BIN; if/when this bike sells, we won’t know if it went for the BIN or a number considerably lower.  Regardless, make an offer that you’d feel comfortable via eBay but, I think it’d be best to view this bike in person and make an in person offer.

Would I like to have a full fairing 900SS with less than 1000 miles?  Absolutely, but not for $6,750.  See the bike on eBay .

1992 Ducati 900SS With 3,782 Miles In Charcoal/Metallic Black

This is an early Supersport in Metallic black which was only available in 1992.  Located in Stockton, California is a 1992 Ducati 900SS with 3,782 original miles.  We’ve seen one other example of this color scheme before which caused quite the discussion and can be seen here.  This color was only available in 1992 and only 13 of the half-fairing bikes made it to the U.S. but, I’m not sure on how many full fairing examples made it in.  Anyone know Ian Fallon?  Regardless of how this color is viewed, this is a low mile example of the early white frame Supersports.  This bike isn’t entirely original as it has been fitted with Fast By Ferracci exhaust in carbon and a Dynojet stage two kit to match.  The stock exhaust is included with the bike.  The bike is also fitted with Dunlop D208’s.  The seller also mentions that a full set of gear comes with the bike–useful if you’re the same size and share the same taste as the seller.  This bike looks to be fitted with the correct seat and decals which one would expect from a bike with this low mileage.  The asking price is $6,500 which is $2,000 less than the other black ’92 we saw that had 4,000 more miles.  If you like your Ducati’s black but like something a bit more vintage, see this bike on Craigslist here.
