Lot Details
1997 Ducati 600SS
Registration no. R650 JGK
Frame no. ZDM600S-003818
Engine no. 014122
Alongside its eight-valve, water-cooled, v-twin 1990s superbike - the 916 - Ducati offered a range of sports models powered by derivatives of the four-valve, air-cooled twin that had been around since 1978. 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. Nothing is known of the history of this 600SS other than that recorded on the accompanying Swansea V5C document, which states that the current registered keeper acquired it on 30th March 2010 and that there have been three former keepers. The machine has been fully serviced recently and is described as in generally good condition. No reserve.
