The 900SS, introduced in 1991, used a development of Ducati's long-running 'belt drive' V-twin motor that had first appeared in 1978. Air-cooled and with two-valves-per-cylinder, the 900SS was simpler, easier to maintain and, of course, less costly than the 851 superbike. In style though, it gave nothing away to its more exotic cousin, having the same distinctive 'trellis' frame as the 851. Handling was, needless to say, exemplary. The 750SS version followed soon after, with 60bhp maximum being good enough for a top speed of around 125mph.
The 750SS we offer here is the 'Nuda' (initially called 'Semi-Carenata') model and is in good condition.
