Hate when people try and sell off the 900s as an SS

Must admit they haven't tried very hard have they to replicate the 1978 look have they!

You have to ask where these "brand new" bikes have been stored - probably need an engine re-build to replace dired out seals, etc,

Loads of places are trying to knock the last of the 900S models as SS

Ducati Uk should point the error of their ways to them.

"brand new and also a parallel import"

Biggest give away is the three spoke wheels, they changed to five spoke for the later SS model, also the swingarm is not the same ( non polished makes it easy to spot) plus non Ohlins rear shock.
It's obvious they have had them painted up to hide the fact it started off as a Matt black S
