    Default Too much choice

    Well I was preparing to bid on the Supermono....

    But an SPS for 40K is just soooo tempting

    What is going on with these prices?

    Lets bring the price war down and keep our bikes on the road and out of the collectors vacuum bag long term storage never to be seen again world of people that collect wine that is already well out of date.

    Spring is around the corner and lets go for a ride

    Well all we need to do is go to our bosses with an empty plate in hand and say "more please."

    If our pay was to increase, the cost of some machines would just go up again, tis the way of the world...made to bleed you dry and keep desireable things out of the hands of those who desire them!!!

    SPS commanded approx. £2300 premium over an SP4 when retailed in 1992.

    If you had £16.650k to spend an SPS was quite good value compared to an SP4 because of the upgrades. Now that SPS ownership is likely to cost double that of a good SP4 the table is turned.

    Looks and performance of these two bikes is so very close, why anybody would pay such a ridiculous premium over the SP4 is beyond me.

    Which I have to agree with. OK, so the 888 SPS has got some extra bhp and a few nice mods, but the SPS & SP4 look identical. Just messing around with the sprockets gets an SP4 pretty damn close to the SP figures. I guess what you're paying for is the 'closest thing to a real Ducati corsa from 1992'. I posted a thread a few months back about what the mileage was on forum member's bikes. I just went over 40,000 kms. OK, so it's not all mine, but I'm not scared to get out on the bike and rack up the miles. However, those of a collector mindset will just leave their 851/888 in the garage gathering dust.

    Thumbs up SPS & Super mono

    Zip,

    The bike in question has been on offer now for about 6 monthís !!!

    The owner who I have spoken with is a typical hard core Duke enthusiast, but money talks and bull shit walks ( Sorry but the Truth Hurts ) he will sell if the cash is true, so in Holland itís a GIFT, for us poor bustards down under the SPS never made it to our splendid shores, pity real pity.

    So correct itís a gift, Jack mate grab the Super Mono first & if you have some coin left then go for the SPS.

    My personal view only !!!

    Best regards
    GT
