1995 DUCATI 900SS SUPERSPORT

1995 DUCATI 900SS SUPERSPORT

DUCATI 900SS Supersport first registered in October 1995, Racing red with bronze frame and 3 spoke alloy wheels, later 3 clock dash – speedo, tacho and temp, original UK bike with 20,000 miles from new. Last of the real Ducati family line. Recent cam belt service and 12 months MOT. Original Ducati Warranty and Maintenance book, Owner’s manual and tool kit along with original passenger seat hump. All MOTs from 3 years old, many invoices supporting the service history. Four owners from new. Start it up to make you smile.

The 1991 Ducati 900SS Supersports were produced with white chrome molybdenum steel frames and white wheels. The swingarms used needle bearings instead of bushings as in the past. Brakes from the Ducati 851 were used on the Supersport vastly improving braking performance. All new bodywork and a pivoting fuel tank were elegantly shaped. The revised Supersports were met with immediate success and became wildly popular. Even though the 1991 Supersport was extremely well developed, Ducati would continue to refine the bike over the years.

From 1991 to 1998, the model was called 900SS, and was available with a full (SS) or half fairing (SS/CR). 1992 saw the addition to the SS/SL (Superlight). In 1994, to further differentiate the 900 from smaller Supersports additional models were released in addition to the Superlight. The 900 SS/SP (Sport Production) was offered to the North American market only. This model had carbon fiber fenders and clutch cover, sound damping material, adjustable Showa suspension, and an aluminum swingarm. The Superlight had the same options as the SS SP but with a single seat and upswept mufflers. The CR’s came with a non adjustable suspension, a steel swingarm, and a narrower 4.5-inch rear wheel and 160 section rear tire. Many riders feel the aluminum swingarms are more desirable.

In 1997, as Supersport sales were declining due to the popularity of the Ducati Monster and Ducati Superbike lines, Ducati attempted to keep the model alive with a few final changes. Yellow was added as a color option, an additional air intake was added as well as new, bolder graphics; namely the “Ducati” emblazoned across the entire side of the Supersport body panel.

In 1998, only 200 red and 200 yellow SS/CR’s were imported to the United States. They featured the last of the Cagiva graphics and elephant but had 1998 spec. motors with new pistons, cylinders and lower mounted oil cooler. A final series Supersport the SS/FE (Final Edition) was also available in 98, but featured the new Pacific graphics, came only in silver with black wheels, had the single seat and upswept exhausts of the Superlight and represented the last carburated Supersport.

The value of a good Ducati 900SS Supersport have been steadily growing in recent years. This is mainly because the bikes are very good – they handle well, have plenty enough performance and character, but moreover, they are a Ducati and Ducati have the same draw in the motorcycle world as Ferrari in the sports car world. If you have a Ducati in your garage, it has a lot of credibility and it’s a bike you will enjoy owning. Now that the best original mid 70’s Ducati 900 Supersports are being sold for £80,000, these 1990s Ducati Supersports appear to be remarkable value for money. My advice : Buy one now, because in a few year’s time, they won’t be this price.

DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT 1978

DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT

One of the true greats in motorcycle history.

1978 DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT – 6,500 miles from new with amazingly, only one owner, silver metallic with blue decals and wire spoked  wheels. Truly outstanding condition and benefiting from a recent service and detail. They really don’t come any better than this.  These machines are the pinnacle of Ducati history and as such are highly collectible. The 1978 model is generally considered by those in the know, to be the bike to have in a collection AND YOU CAN’T STOP SMILING WHEN YOU START IT..

1975–1981 Square Case Super Sport

In 1975, two versions of the Super Sport were made available based on the 864 cc “square-case” 90-degree twin cylinder motor; the full 864 cc version known as the 900 and a sleeved down 750. 250 examples of each were produced but the 750 and 900 are virtually identical. The 1975 Super Sport continued to use the right-side gear shift, contradicting the 1974 U.S. regulation that all bikes must have the gear shifting on the left side of the engine. Despite this, a handful of right side Super Sports have made it into the United States.

Most of the subsequent changes made to the Super Sport model were to comply with global legislation. Quieter mufflers, relocated gear lever and rear brake and new foot pegs. The biggest improvement was the redesign of the kick-starter. On the 1975 model the kick starter could rotate around and shift the transmission into first gear. If the bike was not on the center-stand the rider could potentially have a very unpleasant surprise.

Because the price of the 750 Super Sport was very similar to the 900, BUT very few 750s were produced with the majority of them being shipped to Australia, Germany or staying in Italy for racing applications.

By 1978 the bikes looked identical, but several significant improvements had made their way into the motor, making them more reliable and solving problems with engine crankshafts breaking. The electronics also improved as well as some minor timing tweaks making the bike run more efficiently. Most notable was a majorly redesigned gear lever that made the bike a lot easier for owners to live with and ride. Most 1978 900 Super Sports also came with a dual seat and lockable tool box. The solo seat was available as an option. The 1978 Ducati 900SS model year bike is considered to be the finest iteration of the bevel drive square case Super Sports. The 1978 900 and 1979 750s were the last to retain close links with the Imola racers and the last to come with traditional spoked wheels. It was also in 1978 that the Isle of Man TT Formula 1 race was won by a 900 Super Sport, ridden by former World Champion Mike Hailwood in a popular comeback race.

In 1979 the Super Sports were painted black with gold accents to appeal to the British market. Cast Campagnolo alloy wheels replaced the Borrani alloy rims and a Mike Hailwood Replica was made available in very limited numbers painted in lavish green and red colour schemes. The new changes, specifically the black and gold paint and cast wheels were very successful at making an ageing design look more modern. The 1980 model stayed essentially the same with no notable changes. Essentially, the Super Sport was being transitioned into the Mike Hailwood Replica.

Honda | NR750 1993 – NOW SOLD

1993 Honda NR750 oval piston superbike

1993 HONDA NR750, first registered in September 1993 with only two owners from new and just 660 miles. Properly serviced and maintained regardless of cost.

6585123

This is a FULL POWER 93KW ( 126bhp )model. The Honda NR (New Racing) was a V-four motorcycle engine series started by Honda in 1979 with the 500cc NR500 Grand Prix racer that used oval pistons. This was followed during the 1980s by a 750cc endurance racer version known as the NR750. The oval piston concept allowed for eight valves per cylinder which generated more power due to the increased air/fuel mixture throughput and compression.

6585137In 1992 Honda produced around 300 street versions of this 750cc model, the NR , with a 90-degree V angle. Whereas the NR500 had used an oval piston with straight sides, the road going NR750 used an eliptical piston with curved long sides. The bike became the most expensive production bike at the time when it was selling for $50,000 and with the rarity, nowadays they rarely change hands. This example is in perfect collector’s condition. Comes with all documents, books and tools.
