Faster and Faster | Battle of the Ages: Ducati 851 vs Ducati 1199 Panigale

Faster and Faster | Battle of the Ages: Ducati 851 vs Ducati 1199 Panigale | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Remember the Ducati 851? It came out in 1987 and blitzed the world of sportsbikes like few other machines have ever managed to. Desmoquattro V-Twin, liquid-cooling, fuel-injection, four-valve cylinder heads, 95bhp and a top speed of about 240km/h made the bike a bit special 25 years ago and that’s the way it remains today, despite the fact that it probably requires motorcycle breakdown cover more than the Panigale does!

The 851 and its various avatars (851 SP, 888 and 888 SP) were produced from 1987 to 1993 and the bike won three World Superbikes championships – with Raymond Roche in 1990 and with Doug Polen in 1991 and 1992. By 1993, the Ducati 888 had twin fuel injectors per cylinder, power was up to 125bhp and the bike had the best bits that companies like Termignoni, Brembo and Ohlins were making back then.

Here is a truly collectable model in visually great conditions. This is number 281 of the limited produced Ducati special edition 851. In particular it is stage 3 of the SP series (the last one was the SP5):

The bike is iconic. It was the first Ducati with liquid cooled engine, 4 valves per cylinder with Desmodromic actuation developed through the thesis of a student form Bologna University. It was also one of the first serial bikes to have electronic ignition and fuel injection instead of carburetors. Basically the history of success of Ducati in World Super Bike series started all here ! The bike is in original trim and recently serviced. It will be yours with 10.600 Euros which in my language is a great price. Available in the Austrian Alps....more... click on the headline link above
