The Ducati Supersport is back, but nearly two decades ago the iconic air-cooled SS line came to a halt with a one-year run of 800 bikes. Ducati called it the FE, for Final Edition. All of the bikes got silver paint as well as a couple of treats like an Ohlins rear shock. 300 of the 800 examples were sold in the US – here’s #179.
Ducati started with the Superlight variant of the SS, and then in addition to the silver paint, added a whole bunch of carbon: mudguard, chain guard, rear fender, countershaft drive cover, and dashboard cover. In addition, they raised the pipes for more cornering clearance, gave it new cast iron floating rotors, and some new parts (voltage regulator and alternator) were added, too. Some riders believe this is the best of the 900SS breed simply because it was the latest, and Ducati had sorted out any niggles by the end.
This example had a full service done this year and it’s equipped with Ohlins fork cartridge. The odometer shows 9,544 miles and the sale includes a cover, some spares, and a battery charger. The seller only provides one photo. Find this FE for sale in Ventura, California for $7,750 here on Ducati.ms.
