1998 Ducati 916 SPS
For Sale: 1998 Ducati 916 SPS
While a 916 remains a timeless classic, it is not exactly a rare breed. The SPS version, however, adds considerable performance and value to the equation. For starters, the motor displaces a full 996cc (think of it as the precursor to the 996), has bigger valves, a lighter crank, two injectors per cylinder and stronger cases to hold it all together.
Throw in the performance EPROM and you are looking at approximately 20hp over the stock 916.
On the chassis side, consider the top-notch componentry such as Ohilns rear shock, Brembo calipers, discs, pads and braided lines, and a healthy dose of carbon fiber accents.
This particular bike has some very tasty add-ons to improve performance even further. Note the upgraded clutch cover, showing off the Evoluzione slipper clutch.
