MODEL SUMMARY.

Beautiful Ducati 888 Strada Ducati Rosso Corsa (Racing Red) with Brembo 3 spoke light alloy rims in Silver.

Originally registered 28th April 1994 in the Netherlands, it’s long term Dutch owner also had a property in the UK, and so the bike was registered in the UK in 2015 when he eventually sold the bike. The original clocks are present and show 29000 km (18100 miles) with the bike now having MPH clocks fitted and all paperwork to support the overall mileage of 19000 miles. All original certificates of UK registration are also present.

It’s a highly original, essentially standard bike, in genuinely lovely condition. Very bright, and very pretty, and owned by us personally for the last couple of years. We love it, and it will always turn heads at a bike meet as you just don’t see 888s, be it a Strada or an SP5. Becoming very rare, but remaining a very useable classic.

The 888 Strada specification included it’s 100bhp 888cc DOHC 4v per cylinder Desmodromic motor, Weber Marelli IAW Injection and Ignition, Fully adjustable 41mm dia. Showa forks, Fully adjustable Showa rear shock, Brembo 3 spoke light alloy rims, Brembo Gold calipers with fully floating 320mm dia. front discs, 245mm dia. fixed rear disc, Double sided swingarm finished in natural aluminium and Adjustable levers with Brembo master cylinders and remote reservoirs. In Japanese specification terms of the day, it was a very high specification machine, eclipsed only by it’s own more exotic brethren, the SPS, SP4 and SP5.

This particular bike whilst remaining essentially standard does have some nice upgrades fitted including Sil Moto high level performance exhausts with Race Chip (original low level exhausts and chip supplied) Air box mod with K&N filter, Lucas adjustable rearsets, Carbon fibre front hugger, Carbon fibre rear hugger, Carbon fibre heel plates and a Smoked screen

Minimal miles covered since having Ducati o.e Red Kevlar timing belts, valve clearances, spark plugs, fuel filter and air filter cleaned/oiled (K&N) Recent Shell Ultra Advance 10w/40 fully synthetic oil. New battery. As ne Michelin Pilot Powers fitted

All 851/888 variants are becoming an ever more rare sight on our roads, and all have great desirability. This bike is quite lovely and fast becoming a collector’s piece, if indeed it has not already attained that status. A bike to nurture and cherish, but not so precious as to not still ride and enjoy it. Truly lovely bike. New MOT provided at point of sale
