 Up for grabs is my 1997 DUCATI 748 SP.
 12,400 miles,
£1700.00 major service at PROTWINS in August less than 900 miles ago,
 4 previous owners,
 3 keys,
 HPi clear,
 tax and tested.

 The 748SP was a world supersport homologation special, that Paolo Casoli won the world supersport championship on in 1997.
The homologated race parts fitted by the factory over the base model biposto are:

  • Engine: SP high lift/long duration cams, high comp pistons, Carrilo steel h-beam rods, SP crankshaft.

  • Exhaust: Termignoni 45mm/50mm system and carbon silencers.

  • Chassis: Brembo ductile iron floating discs, Ohlins rear shock, aluminium monoposto subframe and seat unit.

So the 748SP is already a special bike and the previous owners have modified the bike further, the modifications are as follows:

  • BREMBO 16mm radial clutch master cylinder
  • BREMBO 19mm radial brake master cylinder
  • OHLINS steering damper
  • DUCATI 916 oil cooler kit
  • DUCATI PERFORMANCE  carbon airbox
  • CARBON FIBRE: air tubes, belly pan, heel plates, exhaust shield, hugger/chainguard, swingarm cover, clutch cover & sprocket cover.
  • AFAM quickchange sprocket carrier and sprockets
  • DID 520ZVM gold chain
  • Frame plugs
  • Alcantara monoposto seat
  • Crash mushrooms
  • ITG air filter
  • Double bubble screen
  • Pirelli Supercorsa BSB tyres

The bike had a £1700.00 major service at PRO-TWINS in August less than 900 miles ago including:

 Belts, belt idlers, valve clearances adjusted, new collets and some rocker arms, fuel filter,

air filter, spark plugs, oil and filter, brake and clutch fluid, etc.

And another major service at MOTOPAPIDO in July 2011 at 10809 miles.

Interim service and belts at MOTORAPIDO in June 2008 at 9334 miles

Interim service and belts at MOTORAPIDO in February 2006

The bike is supplied with 3 keys, various receipts, mots, etc. paddock-stand and BRAND NEW IN THE BOX  GENUINE FAIRING LOWERS(to replace the carbon)

Bad Bits!

This is an excellent bike and wants for nothing mechanically, however it is used so does have a few cosmetic marks.

The bike was dropped off the stand at somepoint and there are some minor cosmetic damage to the left hand side visible in the photos to the mirror,

bar end and the carbon lower fairing.

The graphics on the fairings have been  lacquered over.                                                                                                              

The fuel light is stuck on and been taped over by previous owner, it is a faulty sender unit, i have a complete fuel pump/sender unit that i will include in the sale.

Purchased only a month ago, my intention was to 853 the engine and fit a few more finishing touches,

but my circumstances have changed and i am reluctantly putting the bike up for sale!(Ive not even ridden it!!)

Not included in the sale but available separately are: 916 heads and barrels(for 853 kit).  Dynojet powercommander 3 USB.

Viewing is highly recommended, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

If the bike doesn't sell i will be very reluctantly breaking it for parts..........
