One Owner: 1993 Ducati Superlight for Sale

Prior to and even during the era of the 916, Ducati still needed to shift their relatively slow, old-tech 900SS. The 916 obviously grabbed headlines, handled like it was on the proverbial rails, and looked like sex. But it was also prohibitively expensive for the plebs to buy and especially to maintain, hideously uncomfortable for…

Insignificantly Rare – 2005 Ducati 1000SS/DS

Ducati developed a new dual-spark desmodue engine for the 1000SS and it is revered among Ducatista.  Its first platform was the Terblanche-styled SS which was fighting a losing showroom battle.  In hindsight it’s a great SuperSport and classic Ducati. 2005 Ducati 1000SS/DS for sale on eBay Engineers made many changes to the new DS engine,…

More Than the Sum – 1993 Ducati 900SS Custom

Ducati definitely had a Monster for every rider in the mid-oughties, from a 996cc water-cooled naked superbike to a M400 progressive license special.  The 800 S2R had a firm hold on the middle of the road, air-cooled and torquey, sporty but more like a ragtop sports car.  This example barely has break in miles and…

Race ready: Deus-restored 1973 Yamaha TD3

As a road racing icon, the Yamaha TD series really needs no introduction. The internet is positively lousy with rhapsodic accounts of its achievements on a racetrack in the hands of big names and amateurs alike. Not just screamingly fast, the 250cc parallel twin TDs were reliable as the sunrise, which made them very hard…

Distant Rumble – 2004 Ducati 1000DS SuperSport

Long and lean, Ducati’s 1000 Dual Spark SuperSport impressed reviewers with stable handling and sensible seat height.  Its 85 air-cooled hp don’t snap the bike upright but do just fine making the cars and bikes behind get smaller.  This 2004 model has miles but recent maintenance and a very factory appearance. 2004 Ducati 1000DS SuperSport…
