4,300-Mile 2001 Ducati 900SS Looks Incredibly Pristine, Marches on Pirelli Footwear


You ought to take a seat before you browse through that photo gallery because this machine will make you go weak at the knees. With its high-end carbon fiber mufflers, Pirelli Angel GT II tires, and a mere 4,300 miles on the counter, the 2001 MY 900SS pictured above this paragraph should be a genuine delight to just about any hardcore Ducatista out there. The Italian stunner is put in motion by an air- and oil-cooled SOHC L-twin mill, featuring four desmodromic valves and a solid displacement of 904cc. In the region of 7,500 revs, this feral piece of fuel-injected machinery will go about producing 80 ponies at the crankshaft. When the tachometer shows 6,500 spins per minute, a maximum torque output of 57 pound-feet (77 Nm) will be channeled to a six-speed transmission, which turns the bike’s rear Marchesini hoop through a chain final drive. Ultimately, Ducati’s fiend will fly past the quarter-mile mark in 12.1 seconds and continue accelerating to a top speed of 140 mph (225 kph). Weighing in at 414 pounds (188 kg) dry, the entire structure is supported by 43 mm (1.7 inches) upside-down Showa forks and a premium Sachs monoshock with progressive linkage. At the front end, plentiful stopping power is made possible thanks to dual 320 mm (12.6 inches) brake rotors and four-piston Brembo calipers, while the rear wheel carries a single 245 mm (9.6 inches) disc that’s mated to a twin-piston caliper. The Duc’s gas chamber is able to gulp as much as 4.2 gallons (16 liters) of fossil juice, while its wheelbase is measured at 1,395 mm (54.9 inches).
