Description

Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 1996 Ducati 916 SPA. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

One of the rarest motorcycles that Ducati of the 1990s (and beyond), the 916 SPA is also known as the 955SP – and that’s your first hint as to why it’s special. With such a hard-to-find machine, specific information can be tough to pin down – but our favorite source when it comes to motorcycles like these is Jason Cormier at OddBike. In his story about the 916 Sport Production series, he notes that SPA stands for Sport Production America, and just 54 examples were built (50 of which were sold to the public). All still said 916 on the side, so it wasn’t immediately clear what was lurking underneath the fairings…

Ducati created this limited run to homologate a 2mm overbore (96mm pistons/barrels) for AMA Superbike. Sources say that the engine also benefited from titanium Pankl connecting rods, and “some sources quote a modified crankshaft and crankcases as well, but details are scarce.” We should note that we see a post from a SPA rebuild which states that the rods are actually steel.

A Cagiva/Ducati technical data sheet found at the above OddBike link lists: 43mm USD adjustable forks and adjustable shock, Brembo calipers clamping on cast iron floating discs (320mm front, 245mm rear), 31.1″ seat height and 429.9 lb weight.

This example is VIN: ZDM916S007073; Engine: ZDM955W4000016. The seller purchased the bike July 2000.

During his ownership the seller has covered approximately 1,615 miles. The odometer shows 6,616 kilometers (4,110 miles).

Maintenance:
The seller states, “Cleaned fuel system, replaced plastic disconnects on bottom of the tank, replaced battery.”

Modifications:
According to the seller only the tires have been changed.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Dunlop Sportmax tires which have aged out.

The sale includes two keys and a certificate of origin.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:

Currently located in Yucca Valley, California, this Ducati is offered on a clean California title. Per the CA DMV website, it will cost $136 to bring registration current through October 2024.
