Triplo Otto – 1993 Ducati 888 SPO

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

Sporting a big number one for Doug Polen’s World Superbike Championships, the 888 came to us in rosso intenso.  This example is at a Florida dealer and shows very well.

1993 Ducati 888 SPO for sale on eBay

A natural progression of the 851, the 888 also was a fuel injected, water cooled desmoquatro with a nice round 100 hp on tap.  Go for the non-ethanol premium gas with 11.0-to-1 compression, and the 6-speed will have you challenging 160 mph before you can get comfortable.  Thanks to EPA, the stateside SPO engine had a single fuel injector for each cylinder, but USD Showa forks and Öhlins monoshock were the same as the European SP5.  Big Brembo brakes and wide 17-inch rims were shared between the continents as well.

Sitting in the lucky Fort Lauderdale sun, this 888 looks great with seemingly undamaged fairings, recent tires and carbon Termis.  The triple tree has been enhanced with a carbon beauty cover, but an SPO numbered badge should be available.  Mileage is a low 7,822, and the comments say it hasn’t been ridden since a major service late 2019 and a little paint work last April –

-888 SPO 1993 with low miles 7,822 to be exact.
-Nice upgrades that you can see on the pictures, pretty much new Dunlop tires, Termignoni Carbon exhaust.
-Left handle switch is missing the button cover (cosmetic only) but as a USA model lights are on all the time.
-Major service done Dec. 2019 and April 2020, bike has not been ridden since then.

Asking major money without the make offer button, spring may have come early to south Fla.  But after receiving a few more pictures and maybe the SPO dash plaque, a bidder may result.  The 888 has a tough kind of beauty – which segue-ed right into the ’94-98 Supersports – but sure looks good in red.
