This Ducati 996 SPS is in very good and fully functioning condition. For the past ten years it was kept in a collection and was not in use at all during this period, which explains the low mileage of 1,200 kilometers. The bike was acquired by a then 60-years old Ducati enthusiast and was decorated with the original Troy Bayliss Infostrada Team race fairing. As the lot also comprises the standard equipment (fairing, lights etc.), the bike is fully suitable for the use on roads.
The successful superbike Ducati 996 SPS from the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. was produced between 1999-2002, it is largely based on the Ducati 916. As Sport Production Special, short SPS, the weight of the engine, a two-cylinder four-stroke engine with 996 ccm, was clearly reduced as single parts made of carbon fiber and titanium were used. Accordingly, the model reaches an output of ca. 92.4 kW, more than the standard 996 could make. With the SPS engine Ducati had created a novelty. The easy-to-handle superbike also has a 6-gear transmission and a hydraulic dry clutch. The upside-down fork by the Swedish manufacturer Öhlins is another specialty the bike featured in series as of 2000. In 2002 the Ducati 996 SPS was replaced by the Ducati 998 with a Testastretta engine.
