1993 was the final year of production for the model range that had virtually saved Ducati from extinction, the revolutionary 851/888. With 1994 planned for the release of the now famous 916, Ducati left nothing in the locker for the SP version of the final 888 SP5.
   The 888 SP5 was predominately based on the preceding, and now incredibly rare & expensive, 888 SPS, Ducati’s highest-ever spec WSBK racer. As a consequence, every exotic piece of equipment found on the Bologna shelves went into the SP5, including the highest performance SPS engine which enjoyed twin injectors, pankl con-rods, and close-ratio gearbox.
   For the frame & suspension, the former changed from white to bronze, as did the wheels change from black to the same Brembo bronze. Showa developed a one-off front fork assembly, and carbon Termignoni cans replaced the former in-house aluminium units of the SP4. The rear brake changed from solid to fully floating, and both ends received braided-steel brake lines.
   While Ducati has continued with their marketing strategy of producing limited race-orientated builds, enthusiasts and Ducatisti believe the 888 range of SPS models were the ‘real-deal’, far harder-edged, loud, cantankerous, a genuine road-going race bike. Moreover, unlike later ‘limited production’ models, far fewer number of the 888 SPS example were produced. Only 500 888 SP5’s were produced, making them rare and among the best machines money could buy in their day.
   The SP5 offered for sale today was delivered to its first owner on 1st March 1993 and registered K553 JUG. Purchased by the last owner on 15th August 2018. The bike has been part of a large collection of motorcycles and historic cars that are currently being offered for sale.
