Released in 1987, the Ducati 851 was a technological leap forward that made Ducati relevant in racing again. As a later bike in the series, this ’90 got the bigger 17 inch wheel and better suspension. In 1990, this bike won the SBK World Championship. Two years later, the bike had evolved into the 888. This example has just 8,000 miles. It’s claimed to be bone stock with a few carbon fiber additions, including the Fast by Ferraci exhaust.
