In Cagiva ownership from 1985, Ducati continued to offer developments of the Fabio Taglioni-designed Pantah while developing an entirely new family of water-cooled models that would debut towards the decade's end in the form of the legendary 851 Superbike. At the same time, the Paso tourer's Weber carburetted 904cc air-cooled engine was put in the 750 Sport chassis to create the 900 Super Sport, its name recalling a famous model from the Bologna firm's not too distant past. Other noteworthy features included 17" wheels, larger Brembo brakes and Marzocchi suspension. An interim model produced for little more than a year pending the arrival of an extensively revised model of same name, the 1990 900SS is one of the rarest of the Ducati v-twin family. This example was acquired by the current vendor in October 1998 and was in regular use before being placed in dry storage where it has been for several years. Re-commissioning will be required before further use. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with V5C registration document and is offered without reserve.
