Ducati Monster

The Ducati Monster is a bike naked produced since 1993 by Ducati , produced in different displacements; this motorcycle is considered the progenitor of this category, which until then had had little success, moreover it inspired many other bikes.

From its debut until 2007 it has never radically changed its style and the house Bolognese has produced more than 150,000 units.

Monster S4

The Monster S4 is introduced in 2001, representing the new top of the range trim.

The engine used is that of the Ducati 916, derived directly from the Superbike, with 4 valves per cylinder and 101 HP, but duly revisited in the camshafts to make it less “pushed” and more touristic. Even the frame, in this version, changes and the one used by the Sport Tourer ST2 and ST4 is adopted, recognizable by the lack of the reaction arch of the rear swingarm. Marchesini 5-spoke wheels and the exclusive “Senna” color scheme (titanium gray and red rims) help to recognize this model.

Ducati Monster

The Ducati Monster is a bike naked produced since 1993 by Ducati , produced in different displacements; this motorcycle is considered the progenitor of this category, which until then had had little success, moreover it inspired many other bikes.

From its debut until 2007 it has never radically changed its style and the house Bolognese has produced more than 150,000 units.

Third generation

2002 sees the birth of the third generation of Monster thanks to the new 620i.e. which takes the place of the 600 with carburetors and which initiates the application of injection throughout the range. The catalyst mounted on the new 620i.e. allows to obtain, on this set-up, the anti-pollution classification Euro 2 (while all the other set-ups remain Euro 1 ). The new Monster 620i.e. is offered in 3 versions: Dark, standard, and “S”.

All engines adopt the new rear suspension, already anticipated by the S4, which eliminates the reaction arch of the rear swingarm, greatly streamlining the aesthetics. On all versions, moreover, the second disc is adopted on the braking system .

The version with 400 engine (destined before this year exclusively for the Japanese market) also makes its timid entry into the European market, proposing itself as a valid alternative to Japanese competitors. The standard version will be accompanied by electronic injection, double Brembo discs and the possibility to choose the color combinations of the fairings and the frame. The dark version will be offered with a black frame, single front disc, stripped fairings. The Monster 400ie is a poorly sold model due to its high cost (compared to a scooter) and low performance. It is a perfect entry level , however not very powerful and therefore sold very little. The commercialization attempt in Europe will be stopped two years later due to poor results. Marketing in Japan will, on the other hand, still remain active.

Finally, this year, a special on an S4 base is presented, produced in a limited series of 350 units, called Fogarty in honor of the multiple motorcycling Carl Fogarty .

Range in production:

  • Monster 400 i.e. – dark, standard – 44 CV @ 10500 giri/min – 166 kg (168 kg Japan Version)
  • Monster 620 ie – dark (to come later), standard, s (carbon side panels and heat shields, front fairing, aluminum swingarm, adjustable reaction strut) – 60 HP @ 9500 rpm – 177 kg
  • Monster 750 i.e. – dark, standard – 64 CV @ 8750 giri/min – 179 kg
  • Monster 900 i.e. – dark, standard – 78 CV @ 8000 giri/min – 189 kg
  • Monster S4 – 101 CV @ 8750 giri / min – 193 kg

Ducati Multistrada

The Ducati Multistrada is a series of V-twin “street trailie” bikes that debuted in 2003. The Multistrada, which is essentially a mix of a supermoto and a sport-tourer, competes in the market with other dual-sport bikes such as the BMW GS; however, unlike the Yamaha TDM850, the original Multistrada was not designed or appropriate for off-road usage. Following models are and include an enduro variant with spoke wheels.

The Ducati Multistrada, designed by Pierre Terblanche as an extension of his previous design, the Cagiva Gran Canyon, has received mixed reviews for its unique appearance. Multistrada is an Italian term that means “many roads.”

Ducati Multistrada 1000DS

Based on Ducati’s existing engines, the 2005 Multistrada 1000DS has a 992 cc air cooled 90° V-twin engine with a 40 degree included valve angle, twin-spark plug heads, pressure fed plain camshaft bearings, redesigned crankshaft, higher oil pressure and volume, and new alloy clutch basket, drive and driven plates. The Ducati 1000DS has a trellis frame with completely adjustable 165 mm travel Showa forks up front and a single-sided swingarm, as well as a Showa fully adjustable rear shock and a rising rate, height-adjustable suspension system at the rear.

Front and rear disc brakes are equipped with four piston Brembo “Serie Oro” brake callipers. Throughout, 320 mm front discs, a single 245 mm rear disc, and steel-braided brake lines are employed. The discs are now directly affixed to enlarged hubs, removing the need for disc carriers. The wet weight is 504–505 pounds (229–229 kg).

2003–2004

The initial version, released in 2003, featured a 1,000 cc engine, but a 620 cc variant was released in 2005. The 2003 Multistrada earned the majority of its critiques owing to its seat, which Motorcyclist magazine described as “a vinyl covered slab of plywood,” and a windscreen that produced excessive buffeting.

2005–2006

The 1000DS Multistrada received an improved side stand in 2005 (the side stand from 2003–2004 was too short and made the bike prone to accidental tip-over), redesigned seats with softer padding and less angular shapes, improved mirrors with longer stems for better visibility, and the optional touring screen from the 2003–2004 model year became standard. In 2005, the 1000DS S variant was introduced, which had hlins suspension, black wheels, and carbon fiber belt covers and front fender. The S-model also included a larger aluminum handlebar that was intended to minimize vibration and enhance handling.

Ducati Monster S2R800

The Ducati Monster (also known as the Il Mostro in Italian) is a standard or naked bike motorcycle developed by Miguel Angel Galluzzi and manufactured by Ducati in Bologna, Italy, since 1993. Monster sales accounted for more than half of Ducati’s global sales in 2005. It sports a 90° V-twin engine, known as an L-twin by Ducati, with desmodromic valves, and a tubular steel trellis frame developed by Fabio Taglioni (1920–2001).

Over the years, the Monster line has seen several modifications, ranging from entry-level 400 cc (24 cu in) bikes to top-of-the-line 160 horsepower (120 kW) multivalve, water-cooled superbike-engined models, with as many as nine different Monster versions in a single model year. The Monster’s essential simplicity has also made it a popular platform for custom motorcycle builders, as shown at events such as the Monster Challenge. Monsters eventually accounted for more than two-thirds of Ducati’s output.

In December 2016, the British weekly journal Motorcycle News stated, “The Monster has gone down in folklore as ‘the bike that rescued Ducati’ because to its popularity and low development costs,” noting that about 300,000 were made.

2000s

Until 2000, when Ducati added fuel injection to the M900 model, the bike remained mostly unaltered. Perhaps more crucially, Ducati debuted the S4 in 2001, which included the liquid-cooled four-valve Superbike engine. Other technological upgrades that year were semi-floating front disc brakes with four-piston Brembo calipers, lighter Brembo wheels, and 43 mm Showa inverted forks. The same year saw the addition of a tachometer to all Monster models, as well as updated instruments. The limited edition, 300-unit S4, named after four-time Ducati Superbike Champion Carl ‘Foggy’ Fogarty, was introduced in 2002.

The S4R debuted in 2003, featuring the 996 engine with dual high rise mufflers on the right side, as well as an increase in power and torque (now up to 113HP) over the 916 powered S4.

The S4RS Testastretta, a new top-of-the-line model, was introduced in November 2005. The engine from the 999 Superbike is used in this new model, together with hlins suspension front and rear and radial front brakes. In 2005, Ducati introduced the S2R Desmodue (two-valved Desmodromic engine) line to the Monster family, which was fashioned similarly to the four-valve S4R but with simpler two-valve 800 cc and 1,000 cc engines in the S2R 800 and S2R 1000, respectively. The 2007 Monster 695 was announced in February 2006. It was debuted in June 2006 to replace the Monster 620.

The Monster 696 was revealed in November 2007 and debuted in Barcelona in early April 2008. Its 696 V-twin engine boasts the maximum power output per cubic centimeter of any Ducati air-cooled engine. In September of 2008, the Monster 1100 was unveiled. It is based on the Monster 696 and has a bigger 1078 cc engine, a single-sided swingarm, radial brake calipers, larger forks, and higher suspension. Ducati sold over 12,000 696 models in 2009, making them the first motorcycle manufacturer to sell more than 10,000 bikes in a single year. The 1100 S variant includes fully adjustable hlins suspension components, a new color scheme, and aluminum brake disc carriers, resulting in a 1 kg weight decrease.

Ducati 1098

The Ducati 1098 is a sport bike produced by Ducati from 2007 to 2009, available in three variants: the 1098, the 1098S, and the 1098R. The 1098 was replaced by the 1198 in 2009, however the 1098R continued to be manufactured that year.

The 1098 is more similar to the older 998 than to its predecessor, the 999, with horizontally oriented headlamps and a non-integrated exhaust system. The single-sided swingarm is another holdover from the 916/998 era. Giandrea Fabbro, a Ducati designer, created the 1098.

Performance

The 1098/1098 S produces 160 horsepower (119 kW), 138 hp (103 kW) rear wheel torque, 90.4 lbft (123 Nm) torque, 77.9 lbft (106 Nm) rear wheel torque, and weights 173 kg (381 lb). The 0-60 mph pace is less than 3.0 seconds, and the 1/4 mile time is 10.015 seconds at 143.94 mph (231.65 km/h) and 173.3 mph (279 km/h). The 1098 R’s bigger displacement 1198 cc engine produces 180 horsepower (134 kW) and 99.1 lbft (134 Nm) torque, according to the manufacturer. These values give the 1098 the greatest torque-to-weight ratio of any production sport bike ever produced at the time of its debut.

Racing

Ducati generated a stir not just with road riders, but also in the racing scene, notably the Superbike World Championship, with the launching of the 1098. In an effort to level the playing field, WSBK regulations grant bikes exemptions based on the number of cylinders in their engine architecture. The fewer the cylinders, the more concessions, and Ducati was able to profit on many of these concessions with its two-cylinder V-twin design.

Ducati said that the existing engine had reached the end of its design life (it lost up to 20 horsepower to the competition in 2007, its final year in WSBK) and that replacing it would be too expensive to make the 999 competitive. Because the 2007 WSBK regulations limited V-twin engines to 1000 cc, Ducati had no certainty that the 1098 would be qualified for entry in the premier class. Prior to the release of the 1098, Ducati petitioned the FIM to amend the WSBK regulations to accommodate its new bike, threatening to withdraw from racing if the rules were not changed. Other manufacturers were upset about racing a bike with a bigger engine, especially since it belonged to Ducati, which has traditionally dominated WSBK competition, and Suzuki even threatened to leave if the regulations were amended.

Ducati won when the FIM confirmed in June 2007 that the engine size restriction will be increased to 1200 cc for 2008. This increase in displacement, however, was not possible without Ducati making compromises. With the new 1200 cc maximum displacement for two-cylinders permitted, the further engine modifications that enabled two-cylinder motorcycles were given up. Engine modification regulations for two-cylinder and four-cylinder engines are now the same. The rules for three-cylinder engines remain unchanged.

Ducati’s 1098RS, a version of the 1098R, won the Superbike World Championship in 2008 and 2011. (Bayliss on a 1098RS and Checa on a 1198RS). The 1098RS and 1198RS were race-ready variants of the 1098R. It also won the British Superbike Championship in 2008, in addition to the two World Superbike Championships. The RS Version was never intended or legal for road usage, and it was never sold to the general public.

It had more aggressive camshafts, high compression pistons, a larger capacity fuel tank that extended under the seat, a steering damper remounted ahead of the larger fuel tank, a large capacity and pressurized radiator, a servo motor in the injection system, a longer and stiffer swingarm, a flat rocker arm for the rear suspension that allowed for full range of travel, adjustable triple clamps for variations in traction, and a servo motor in the injection system. Since the Superbike World Championship was created in 1988, Ducati has won 17 World Championships.

Remodelled for 2009

For 2009, Ducati took the 1098’s previous success and tweaked it to honor a racing great while also improving the Superbike’s performance.

Key upgrades include a 180 horsepower 90° L-twin “Testastretta Evoluzione” engine upgrade and the addition of Ducati Traction Control for improved handling. The more frequent model is the “1098-09 R,” which features the classic Ducati red fairing, black chassis, and white subframe. The rims of the wheels are gold in hue.

Ducati redesigned this bike to commemorate Troy Bayliss’ victory in the 2008 Superbike World Championship season while racing for Ducati, after which he retired. Ducati created the redesigned 1098 to honor Bayliss’s career and three World Championships. It also allowed Ducati to offer a few 1098 models with a color scheme quite close to the one used by Bayliss’ bike during his victorious races in the 2008 Grand Prix, as well as his number “21” on the side. This model is appropriately dubbed “Ducati 1098 R Bayliss Limited Edition.” Only 500 pieces of this new bike were produced, according to Ducati. Other features of the 1098 R Bayliss LE include a carbon fiber heat shield on the exhaust and 5-spoke wheels (identical to the original Bayliss). It went on to win a second world title in 2011 with Carlos Checa.

Ducati 999

The Ducati 999 replaced the Massimo Tamburini-designed Ducati 916, Ducati 996, and Ducati 998 superbikes in 2003 and was manufactured until 2006. This motorbike had a lot of success in World Superbike, and it was still raced in the championship until the 2007 season, despite the fact that it was no longer manufactured, pending regulation revisions by the series’ governing body, FIM, to enable racing of the new Ducati 1098.

The 999 was created by Pierre Terblanche, and its aesthetics sparked significant debate. It’s a high-performance, race-oriented motorbike. It offers a linear power delivery thanks to its typical Ducati L Twin Desmodromic Valve operated engine configuration, with strong power and torque statistics accessible even at low RPM. Furthermore, with its high-spec suspension and trellis chassis, it is one of the best-handling bikes of its generation.

Following that, more powerful 999S and 999R variants were released, both capable of 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than three seconds and a peak speed of more than 170 mph (270 km/h).

The 2005 Ducati 999S won the Maxisport category and finished second overall in the famous worldwide Masterbike 2005 comparison. It has gained critical accolades from a variety of sources, including MCN in the United Kingdom, which dubbed it “simply the greatest V-Twin on the globe,” and Motorbikestoday.com in 2004, which named it “the most coveted, most exhilarating roadbike on the planet.” MotorcycleUSA.com called it “outstanding” and “the pinnacle of V-Twin power.”

Ducati 748/916

The Ducati 748 was a sport bike produced by Ducati from 1994 to 2002. The 748 was a smaller variant of the 916 that was superseded by the 749 in 2003.

The Ducati 916 is a full-faired sport bike produced by Ducati between 1994 and 1998. The 916 is generally considered as one of the most beautiful bikes ever, with a 916 cc (56 cu in) fuel injected, 4-valve, desmo, liquid-cooled, 90° V-twin engine in a trellis frame with a single-sided swing-arm and USD forks.

748

The Ducati Desmoquattro engine began as a 748 cc (45.6 cu in) displacement engine with cylinder heads designed for a narrower bore than the 916, therefore a smaller version of the 916 was to be expected.

The Ducati 748 is nearly similar to the Ducati 916, both of which were designed by Ducati in-house designer Massimo Tamburini and share certain design aspects with the Ducati Supermono. The main variations are the rear tyre size (180/55/17 as opposed to 190/50/17) and engine capacity (748 cc) (88 mm diameter and 61.5 mm stroke) (45.6 cu in). The engine’s shorter piston stroke allows for a higher rev maximum of 11500 RPM, while the smaller pistons allow the engine to accelerate faster.

Ducati developed many versions of the 748, beginning with the base 748 Biposto (meaning “two seat”) in 1994, followed by the 1995–96 748SP and 1996–99 748SPS as more powerful choices. The many engine versions (each weighing close to 54 kilograms (119 lb)) generated at least 71 kilowatts (95 hp). The SP and SPS engines were fine-tuned and only available as monoposto (meaning “single seat”), but the standard 748 could be ordered with a monoposto option, and were designed as homologation bikes for World Supersport racing. Over and above the standard model, Ohlins rear shocks and completely floating cast-iron Brembo brake disks were supplied. The engines also had an oil cooler.

Ducati updated their 748 model range in 2000 to offer a third variant. The base model was now known as the 748E, and it was offered in Biposto or Monoposto configurations, with 3-spoke gold wheels and a gold frame. The quick-release Dzus fasteners on the fairing had been replaced with simple fairing fasteners, and the frame had a set steering head angle. The Sachs-Boge rear shock was paired with Showa forks. This assisted in keeping prices down.

The 748S served as the intermediate model. This had lighter grey 5-spoke Marchesini wheels to match the grey frame, as well as the earlier adjustable steering head. The rear shock was now a Showa unit, with Showa forks up front, with Titanium-Nitride (TiN) coating on the fork stanchions to “avoid stiction,” which also gave it a gold hue. The engine was identical to that of the 748E.

The 748R, Ducati’s racing homologation variant built in extremely limited quantities, was now the top of the line model. This engine was a variation on the SPS concept, but with additional tweaking. The key difference is that the R model features an overhead shower-injector configuration as opposed to the typical throttle bodies, titanium connecting rods, titanium valves, and more severe valve timing seen in the 748E and S models.

As a result, the 748R features a bigger, two-part airbox, and the frame was modified to suit this. Although the suspension was Ohlins for both the rear shock and the front forks, the very first versions in 2000 featured Showa titanium nitride (TiN) front forks and a Showa shock absorber. The engine incorporated a simple slipper clutch to guarantee that it could be homologated for racing purposes, as well as an oil cooler.

Ducati also created a very limited run (less than 20) of 748RS motorcycles, which were designed as full racing machines and came with no road-going equipment (lights, odometer, mirrors). The engine internals and components were drastically different from any other Ducati on the road, made of a mix of light-weight, high-strength materials that made them extraordinarily expensive to buy, run, and repair. The RS had a 54 mm exhaust system and a slightly reduced size and gauge of Chromoly tubing on the frame to help save weight.

Ducati also created the limited edition 748S Senna in 2002, which employed the same components as the 748S but had a flat grey body, a grey frame, and red Marchesini 5 spoke wheels. It was exclusively available in Monoposto.

916

The 916 model family’s origins may be traced back to the invention of the four-valve Ducati engine, the Desmoquattro, via the development and racing of older Pantah models, through the road-going 851 and 888 models.

Fabio Taglioni (1920–2001), who launched the Pantah in 1979, has been the head designer of Ducati bikes since the 1970s. The engine was modified in the 1990s as part of the SuperSport (SS) series, and all present Ducati engines are descendants of the Pantah, which employed camshafts to open and shut the engine’s valves, eliminating the typical valve closing springs, a technology known as ‘desmodromic.’ Taglioni, on the other hand, had little interest in four-valve head engines, therefore this was left to his successor. Massimo Bordi, Taglioni’s successor, designed the eight-valve V-twin.

The 916’s water-cooled engine, designed by Massimo Tamburini and Sergio Robbiano and his team at the Cagiva Research Centre in San Marino, was a refinement of that of its predecessor, the 888, with bigger displacement and a new engine management system. The increased displacement was achieved by raising the crankshaft stroke from 64 mm to 66 mm while maintaining the same 94 mm bore size as the 888, resulting in a capacity of 916 cc. (By the time the 916 was released, the bore diameters of the final 851/888 Corse engines had been raised to 96 mm, resulting in ‘race only’ capacities of 926 cc and 955 cc, respectively.)

The 916 was a smaller motorbike than the 888, with a trellis frame made of chrome-moly that was shared with the Ducati 748 in 1995 and beyond. This was complemented with eye-catching new bodywork with strong lines. Compared to its Japanese inline four-cylinder contemporaries at the time, the V-twin engine generated less raw power but a more uniform torque distribution. In 1999, the 916 model was superseded by the 996 model.

The Ducati 916’s design was a blend of form and function:

  • The elegant single-sided swing-arm was created to speed up wheel swaps during races.
  • The under-seat exhausts boost aerodynamic performance while also providing exceptionally clean looks. This feature was originally seen on the Honda NR, and while Ducati was not the first to use it, it has become one of the 916 line’s distinguishing characteristics.

According to journalist Kevin Ash, despite being “one of the most influential machines of the last twenty years,” the 916’s design is actually a derivative of the Honda NR750, with shared elements such as an underseat exhaust, a narrow waist, similar squared-off dual headlights, and a single-sided swingarm holding a large-section rear tire.

Ducati M900

The Ducati Monster (also known as the Il Mostro in Italian) is a standard or naked bike motorcycle developed by Miguel Angel Galluzzi and manufactured by Ducati in Bologna, Italy, since 1993. Monster sales accounted for more than half of Ducati’s global sales in 2005. It sports a 90° V-twin engine, known as an L-twin by Ducati, with desmodromic valves, and a tubular steel trellis frame developed by Fabio Taglioni (1920–2001).

Over the years, the Monster line has seen several modifications, ranging from entry-level 400 cc (24 cu in) bikes to top-of-the-line 160 horsepower (120 kW) multivalve, water-cooled superbike-engined models, with as many as nine different Monster versions in a single model year. The Monster’s essential simplicity has also made it a popular platform for custom motorcycle builders, as shown at events such as the Monster Challenge. Monsters eventually accounted for more than two-thirds of Ducati’s output.

In December 2016, the British weekly newspaper Motorcycle News stated, “The Monster has gone down in folklore as ‘the bike that saved Ducati’ due to its popularity and low development costs,” adding that approximately 300,000 were produced.

Conception and design

In 1992, the Monster was created as a style exercise. Galluzzi had been thinking about the Monster concept for a long time, and it required some convincing to convince the executives at Cagiva and Ducati to create it. Massimo Bordi, Ducati’s technical director, came up with the concept for the new bike and tasked Galluzzi with designing it. Bordi stated that he inquired of Galluzzi “for something with a strong Ducati pedigree but that was comfortable to ride and wasn’t a sports bike He made a suggestion, and I immediately thought, “This is the bike Marlon Brando would be riding today in the film The Wild One!””

Bordi’s intention was to join the cruiser market with a bike designed to be customized and ultimately have a plethora of bolt-on aftermarket accessories rivaling the selection of custom and hot-rod components available for Harley-Davidsons. Cagiva had already attempted to enter this market with a cruiser, the Ducati Indiana of 1986–1990. According to some reports, it made poor use of Ducati’s desmodromic valve V-twin engines and used a full-cradle frame rather of Ducati’s trademark trellis, which played against Ducati’s artistic strengths. Over a four-year period, just 2,138 were produced. The Monster appealed to the same urban, style-conscious clients looking for a bike that could make an individuality statement, but it did so with a machine that was unlike anything they had seen before, while remaining undeniably Italian and a Ducati.

Because Bordi wanted Galluzzi to keep costs low, the Monster was a humble “parts bin special,” built not with newly designed components carefully engineered to work in unison, but by mixing and matching parts from existing Ducati models, beginning with the engine and fork of a 900 Supersport, a frame descended from the 851 superbike, and a fork descended from the 750 Supersport. Galluzzi designed a “muscular” fuel tank and minimalist bodywork to give the sense of heft and strength on a motorbike that proved to be unexpectedly small and nimble to first-time riders.

1990s

In its initial generation, Ducati launched three Monster models: the M600, M750, and M900 (the numbers denote engine sizes). The first M900 was delivered in 1993, followed by the M600 in 1994, and lastly the M750 in 1996. With the launching of the M600 Dark in 1998, Ducati introduced its Monster Dark family of bikes. In 1999, Ducati launched various limited edition Monsters, several with varying degrees of extras, the most prominent being the Monster City, which came in a distinctive blue color and with leather briefcase type saddlebags and taller handlebars.

Since 1994, a lesser displacement variant, the M400, has been produced for various regions where the tax or license system is especially severe on higher capacity or more powerful bikes. The M400 was designed primarily for Italy, Japan, and Singapore, but it was also shipped to Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Thailand. The M400 was built on the same basic engine components as the M600, but with a shorter stroke crankshaft and smaller diameter pistons.

Ducati 888

The Ducati 888 was a motorbike produced by Ducati that served as an improvement to the Ducati 851. The previous 851 brought liquid cooling, automated fuel injection, and four-valve heads to the company’s two-cylinder engines. Ducati raised the size of the 851 to 888 cc in 1991 to create the 888. Both engines used the Desmoquattro valvetrain idea, which used desmodromic valve actuation on a four-valve-per-cylinder motor, with cams opening and shutting the valves. The desmodromic technology from Ducati minimizes the frictional penalty caused by traditional valve springs.

The following production statistics are known for the various models:

1991 models: 1200 × 851 Stradas, 534 × SP3 & 16 × SPS. A total of 1850 units.

1992 models: 1402 × 851 Stradas, 500 × SP4 & 101 × SPS. A total of 2003 units.

1993 models: 1280 × 888 Stradas, 500 × SP5 & 290 × SPO – for the American market. A total of 2070 units.

1994 models: 1571 × 888 Stradas & 100 SPO for the American market. A total of 1671 units. Over all years there was a grand total of 7594 units produced.

Doug Polen won the World Superbike Championships on the Ducati 888 in 1991 and 1992. After losing to Kawasaki in the World Superbike Championship in 1993, Ducati discontinued manufacture of the 888 and introduced the Ducati 916, which featured a greater engine capacity.

Continual refining resulted in the 916/996 and 999 lines, the following two generations of the Ducati Desmoquattro superbike.

Cycle World observed a 0 to 14 mile (0.00 to 0.40 km) time of 11.25 seconds at 123.45 mph (198.67 km/h) and a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) acceleration of 3.3 seconds in a 1993 road test of the 888SPO. They measured a peak speed of 152 mph (245 km/h) and a braking distance of 123 feet from 60 to 0 mph (97 to 0 km/h) (37 m). The wet weight of their test bike was 497 lb (225 kg), and the rear-wheel horsepower was 94.0 hp (70.1 kW) at 8,740 rpm, with torque at 7,000 rpm of 59.4 lbft (80.5 Nm).

The 1992 racing version of the 888, the SBK, featured a dry weight of 142 kg (313 lb), 134 horsepower (100 kW) at 12,000 rpm, and a peak speed of more than 290 km/h (180 mph).
