The 996’s special SPS lighter engine was much stronger than anything that Ducati or any other manufacturer at the time had produced for the track. The 996 cc 90° V-Twin, two fuel injectors per cylinder, 4 valve per cylinder desmodromic, liquid cooled engine produces 124 BHP.
A two year major service has just been completed by Ducati Coventry and has only covered 9 miles since. The service included new cambelts, clutch, plugs and Motul 300V-15-R oil etc at a cost of £915.
To ride she pulls beautifully and the 6 speed gearbox and clutch operate with ease, the Ducati V-Twin sound through the Termignoni exhausts is magical.

What the press are saying - Investing in a Ducati 916 or 996 SP/S is a wise move, especially now. Here are some classic motorcycle investment hard facts and data:-
Ducati 996 SPS Rarer Than A Vincent Black Shadow
1997 saw the introduction of the 916 SPS, with the 996cc motor, and Bologna produced 908 pieces for 1997 and 98. Of those 916 SPSs, they built 202 Foggy Replicas. Between 1999 and 2000 the new 996 SPS arrived on the scene and Ducati produced 1780 units in total for world wide distribution. To give you an idea of how few units that is, Vincent produced more Black Shadows than Ducati made 996 SPSs. Of the 996 SPS range, they built 150 series 1 Factory Replicas (EU versions of the Foggy Rep), very rare indeed, and then a further 325 series 2 Factory Replicas. There was 150 SP2s, a budget version of the SPS for the German market, and a few other obscure versions. In total Ducati built 4980 of both the 916 and 996 SP/S.
916/996 SP/S Value Increases
Investing in the 916 and 996 SP/S ranges has already proved to be a wise move. There is now more upward pressure on prices for such investment grade classic motorcycles. Prices have climbed steadily for nine years and then took a breather for two years, for both the 916 and 996 SP/S. They’re now celebrating their 25th anniversary and have had their two years of rest. Now is the time to buy a great example of one of these historic classics. Prices will start increasing heavily over the coming years, especially in light of all the classic car collectors who are turning to collecting motorcycles. If you’ve thought about owning one of these machines, then now is the time to buy.
