Announced in 1988, the Super Sport used a Pantah based 904 cc air-cooled 90° V-twin, two-valve “Desmodue” engine with crankcases derived from the 851 motor. It was mounted in a tubular trellis frame. The resurrection was due largely to Ducati being bought out by Cagiva and the first reborn Super Sport was released as a 750 Sport. It met with failure due to its 16-inch wheels and a kludgy Weber carburettor.
From 1988 to 1991, the model was called a 900 SuperSport, and featured a full size fairing. The 1989 Super Sport received a revised air/oil cooled motor from the 906cc Ducati Paso incorporating many changes to the Pantah motor, including a six-speed gear box.
This fine example comes with an MoT until October 2018 and has only covered 6,000 miles. Supplied with a full service history the bike has just had a service by MD Racing including the cam belts.
