Ever since the iconic original 916 Strada Ducati has pursued a policy of offering limited edition versions boasting increased power and higher quality equipment, the first of which was the 916 SP. Next came the ultra-exclusive 916 SPS (Sport Production Special) only 400 of which were made. Despite the name, the 916 SPS engine displaced 996cc and delivering a mighty 132bhp at the rear wheel. For 1999 the 996 replaced the 916 and once again there was a higher-specification 'SPS' version topping the range. The 996 SPS's top speed was around 175mph and this exclusive model cost £18,650 in 1999, making it one of the world's most expensive production motorcycles.

The machine offered here is the very rare 996 SPS2 version of Ducati's 996 SPS. This model was built for the European market only and came with the full power SPS motor, Öhlins rear shock absorber, and Marchesini wheels, but had fewer carbon-fibre components, such as the front mudguard. Only 150 were built: 52 fewer than the legendary Foggy Replica.

We are advised by the vendor that this example has been well maintained and is in superb condition. With a little over 8,000 kilometres (approximately 5,000 miles) recorded, it has never seen a drop of rain. The machine is offered from private collection and comes with Belgian registration papers.
