1994 Ducati 888 Strada
Registration no. M769 SFA
Frame no. ZDM888S1*002632*
Engine no. 002680
Ducati's racing successes in the late 80s and 90s fed through to sales of road bikes patterned on the racers of the period, and the models changed almost as quickly as the racers. With the four-valve era came the 851 and 888 models, alongside a range of unfaired road models. The 888 was liquid cooled, four valves per cylinder, and had desmodromic valve operation. It swept all before it in the World Superbike Championships, wining the top place in 1991 and 1992. It eventually gave way to the 916 in 1994. M769 SFA was purchased new by the vendor in 1994 (invoice on file). Over the intervening time it has been used for summer use only. At its first service (1,000 kms.) the kph speedometer was change for an mph one, on which the odometer now displays 11,061 recorded miles. In 1995 the vendor had the machine fitted with an 851-specification performance chip, and the original chip accompanies the bike. The original tool kit is still in place under the seat. Unfortunately, due to advancing age, the owner has not used the 888 for some years, and feels it is time to let a new owner have custody of it. Consequently, although the battery has been kept charged, the Ducati will need a service, a degree of re-commissioning, and basic safety checks, prior to taking to the road with a new owner. Documentation accompanying the machine comprises the aforementioned purchase invoice, the maintenance handbook, service booklet, an original sales brochure, a reproduction parts book, and sundry invoices/miscellaneous papers.
