One of the most important two-cylinder machines in the history of Ducati, a first generation 900 SuperSport is up for sale for £30,000.
In the late 70’s, Ducati’s management reckoned its line-up lacked a super sport bike capable of competing with the Japanese superbikes – and the Ducati 900 Super Sport was developed to fill that gap.
Initially, Ducati opted for a more touring-oriented approach, with the 860 GT, but after a less than favourable reception, the Bolognese manufacturer also introduced a sportier version, the 900 Super Sport.
The 860 cc engine was derived from the original L-twin engine conceived for the 750 GT, but featured a redesigned, more squared case. Throughout its history, the 900 SS underwent few modifications, from the fuel tank to the light-alloy wheels, and was offered in a gold and black livery, in addition to the classic silver and electric blue colour scheme.
The Ducati 900 SS for sale was fully restored in 2015 and has 17,066 original miles on the clock. For more information on this iconic machine, click HERE.
