The only time I saw an SP something in person was in 1997 at Laguna Seca for the WSB. Yea, rare birds indeed. I hope you ride them some. Then again I never saw an RC-30, RC-45 or R-7 or an OW-01 or ZX-7RR riding in the streets either.....

Other than the 996R, they all get ridden regularly. KMY on here has an RC-30, RC-45, as well as SPS and other R bikes and his all get used too.

ZX-7RR. That was a beast. The ZX-7R was the street version, although I think at one point they did change the name on that one also to Zx-7RR like the race bike.

It basically won a WSBK title every single year of its existence except for one (1997).


Also, you own a 998R. That is the homologation bike for the 998F02 which won the constructors title in 2002. I have one as well and it is one of the best Ducatis ever built to this day.
You are right for that, I just thinking drivers wsbk title..my bad

In 1993 the ZX-7 was the street version and the ZX-7RR was the rare race version. A KTM dealer in Ellicott City Md, who also sells Kawis and other brands, has a brand new never used 1993 ZX-7RR up on the wall ledge.....on display above the showroom....just sitting there.....They wont sell it.....so it sits and sits.....
