The motorcycle offered here is a very well-preserved version of the 900SS. It was first registered in Germany. The bike has a Ducati performance aluminum fuel and a JAKO valve system.
This motorbike is, on the one hand, based on the Ducati model 860GT/GTS, from which the squared crankcase and the cubic capacity were taken, on the other hand it has parts from the model 750 SS, that is the design with the half fairing, round seat and Desmo cylinder heads. The long wheelbase provides a very stable handling even at maximum speeds of more than 225 km/h. The air-cooled V-90° two-cylinder engine has an output of 50 kW (98 hp), thanks to the desmodromic valve control it can make up to 8500 rpm. The first 900 SS models were built by the racing department and had a GRP fuel tank. A steel tank was used in series production. Production of the Ducati 900 SS upright shaft was stopped in 1982 and it was replaced by the 900 S2, which featured an electric starter. A lot of components of the 900 SS were adopted, the engine, however, was optimized.
