Overview[edit]

Ducati 888 Strada




















As the official factory racers and the Sport Production series were already displacing 888cc, it was inevitable that the production Superbike Strada would follow suit. This occurred for 1993, with the series also becoming a generic "888" rather than "851." The 888 also featured Pierre Terblanche's 851 styling facelift of 1992. The European 888 Strada was very similar to that of the 1992 851 Strada and, except for an 888cc engine, most of the specifications were shared. They had the same valves, camshafts gearbox, and a single fuel injector per cylinder. To set the 1994 versions apart from the almost identical 1993 model there were new decals.The final 888s also featuring bronze-painted wheels. The 888 was sold as the 888 SPO in the U.S. market, an amalgam of the limited production high-performance SP5,and the European-specification 888 Strada. As the SP5 was unable to pass U.S. DOT requirements for registration, the SPO was created to homologate the 888 for AMA Superbike competition. While they were titled a Sport Production, they were more closely related to the 888 Strada than the SP5. The SPO engine was identical to that of the 888 Strada, but many chassis components were shared with the SP5.The stainless-steel front discs and Showa fork were shared with the 888 Strada, but the SPO had a single seat, upswept exhaust pipes, and an Öhlins shock absorber with eccentric ride height adjustment. Even though it was a Monoposto, there wasn't an aluminum rear subframe as on other Sport Production models. There were only detail changes for the 1994 Model Year. Updates included a carbon fiber front fender, bronze wheels, a larger-diameter front axle, and a numbered plaque on the top triple clamp. Although overshadowed by the 916, the 888 was a well-developed, and largely underappreciated, model..
