The 888 is basically an evolution of the 851, of which it retains the frame and a large part of the components [1]. Even the engine was not new, as it had already in fact equipped the most powerful versions of the 851 from the 851 SP2 of 1990 [2]. The denomination 888 was then first used for the most performance versions (even if already for 2 years the real displacement was that [2]), such as the SP4 and the SPS addressed both to the competitive use, then it was also used for the Road versions and the two-seater of the 851 when they also adopted the new displacement of 888cc. Technique [edit | wikitesto change] This model, as per Ducati tradition, is driven by a 90 ° V twin-cylinder engine with a desmodromic distribution, whose arrangement with the almost horizontal front cylinder and the almost vertical rear cylinder is universally known as a L-engine. technical choice, dating back more than twenty years earlier, promotes temperature control in air-cooled engines and was also maintained with the adoption of liquid cooling and the multi-valve head by the 851. The frame is a pipeline truss of chrome-molybdenum steel, also a trademark of the Bologna-based company, the gearbox is 6-speed transmission and the final transmission is chain-driven. The aesthetic appearance was identical to the 851, subjected to restyling in the year in which the 888 was launched [1]. Competitive use [edit | wikitesto change] Top model of the Ducati sports production, in 1991 he took part in the Superbike World Championship replacing the 851, continuing Ducati victories in the championship for another two years with Doug Polen, without upsetting the lines from the previous model too, in fact initially the the only real difference between the two models was only the displacement of the engine, raised precisely to 888cm³. Upon the arrival in 1994 of his replacement, the totally new Ducati 916, was still used in the race by the pilots who had not yet passed the most recent model, which gradually replaced it on the race fields. It should be noted that in 1994 the Austrian motorcycle racer Andreas Meklau on his 888 nº11 [3] [4] set the fastest lap in the race in both heats [5] [6] of the 1994 World Superbike race in the one that was the last race of the category held at the Österreichring (renovated the following year as A1-Ring) and, although ranking both times second behind Carl Fogarty, it was faster than the British riding the 916.
