Ducati kicked off the inaugural World Superbike Championship with victory in the opening round at Donington Park in April 1988. Works rider Marco Lucchinelli took the honours aboard an over-bored and race-kitted version of the Ducati 851 sports roadster, and the following year the factory announced what would be the first of many limited-edition models: the Lucchinelli Replica. In 1990 Ducati replaced the Luccinelli Replica with the competition-only Corsa, the first in a series of such machines based on the preceding year's works racers. Like the Replica, the Corsa used the 888cc engine, which also featured in the limited edition, higher-specification SP series of Ducati roadsters. Too good to reserve purely for limited production, the 888cc engine eventually went into the 851's replacement – the 888 Superbike – in 1993. Strada (road), SP (Sport Production) and SPO (Sport Production Omologato) versions were offered. First registered in the UK in April 1995, this Ducati 888 SPO has belonged to the current vendor since June 2007. Last run earlier this year, the machine displays a total of 12,651 miles on the odometer and is described by the private vendor as in good condition throughout. Offered with instruction manuals; a quantity of expired MoTs; sundry bills; and a V5C document, this 888 SPO represents a rare opportunity to acquire an iconic modern Ducati that can only become increasingly collectible. It should be noted, there is no engine number visible and is simply listed as 'NOT KNOWN' to the V5C.
