1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale: Only 3000 miles!

Less than 300 were imported to the U.S. and this one has just a few tasteful upgrades.

1993 Ducati 888 SPO For Sale on for $8500:
Ducati 888 SPO For Sale

I am selling my 1993 DUCATI 888 SPO (limited edition, 1 of only 200 in the world!) it has an Ohlins rear shock, carbon fiber FBF exhaust pipes, upgraded ECU, air filter, Steering Damper, and upgraded racing brake lines, and pads.

The bike has only had 200 miles put on since its last service, which is when new Dunlops where put on as well.

This motorcycle has the extremely rare, and hard to find “Ducati Campione Del Mondo Superbike” paint job, celebrating the Superbike championship win by Doug Polen for that year…

I’m a subscriber on the Ducati 851/888 Yahoo group where this bike was mentioned. This is a very active and knowledgable community. Here’s some of the comments on this bike:

I wish I could just buy all the 1/2 priced early 4 valves out there, moth ball them and sell them for stupid money in 25 years.

[…] a stupid deal.

Get ’em while you can guys. You’ll look back on these days with all the nice 851/888’s for under $10k.
“Coulda…… woulda……shoulda days” are now.

I can tell you that if it was possible to get Australian compliance and rego on that SPO it would be heading here PRONTO!

I was recently at Ducati Motocorsa in Portland, where they have an 888 SPO on display. It’s even more beautiful in person.

This popped up on the 851-888 list: 1993 Ducati 888 SPO on Craigslist for $10k

Ducati 888 SPO For SaleDucati 888 SPO Craigslist San Francisco

Beautiful bike, never raced or wrecked. New tires. Ferracci CF exhaust and stage 1 chip, Ohlins shock, Toby Steering Damper, CF hugger, CF fender, CF sprocket guard, CF gauge surrounds, vented CF clutch cover, kevlar brake lines, CF tank guard, Corbin seat, K&N filter, much more . . . Doug Polen (3 time world champion riding an identical bike) autographed the tail, making this a rare and unique specimen. Not many of these are left, especially in this condition. Original parts were retained to return to completely stock set up. Also have original manuals, took kit and a shop manual. I hate to part with this bike, but with 4 bikes and a 2 year old, something has to go.

The Ducati 851 series was the precursor to the 916 series, and featured a 4 valve head and water cooling — which I believe was a first for a production Ducati.
