SPO – it stands for Sport Production Omologato, and it was a limited homologation production version of the 888 built for the American market per a request from Fast By Ferraci so they could race in AMA Superbike. It turned out to be a good idea, as the bike won both the AMA Superbike and World Superbike championships in 1993.
Featuring the trademark desmo valve V-Twin, this 888 produced 94 horsepower with a track-friendly riding position.For a limited edition Ducati, the 888SPO gets very little mention and is relatively underappreciated. Keep your eyes peeled for head and base gasket leaks, and you should be fine.
This example has 10,237 miles and has a few extras including slipons, EVR clutch slave, clipons from a 900SS, AP Lockheed front master cylinder, Corbin seat, and more. Note that some of the photos are old and don’t show the number one on the number plate – those are currently on the bike. The seller has owned this for approximately 10 years and put about 3,000 miles on it. Now he’s looking for a Motus, so the next owner can find it here on Ducati.ms for $10,000 in Tampa, Florida.
