Lot 167: Ducati 600SS

Important Collectors' Motorcars & Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 June 2012)

Alongside its 8-valve, water-cooled, v-twin 1990s superbike - the 916 - Ducati offered a range of sports models powered by derivatives of the 4-valve, air-cooled twin that had been around since 1978 when it debuted in the Pantah. Cheaper to run and insure than a superbike, the 'SS' range came in three versions powered by engines of 600cc, 750cc and 900cc, all of which shared the same trellis-type frame as the 916 and similarly sexy styling. Relatively light (380lbs) and nimble, the 600SS was no sluggard despite being the 'baby' of the group, boasting a top speed of more than 120mph. The vendor has used this 600SS as a road bike for the last four years and describes it as quick, reliable and a pleasure to ride. Currently displaying a total of only 17,359 miles on the odometer, the machine is offered with service book (stamped to 1997), sundry bills and expired MoTs, owner's manual and Swansea V5C document.
