Featured 888 Open Air Box Induction Roar

Discussion in '851 / 888' started by Bridgland, Aug 8, 2021.



  1. A wonderful ride out a couple of weeks back with @KevB on his SP4. Got the chance to open her up a bit and she goes over 7k rpm.

    Loving the world of the 851s and 888s.

  2. Listening to that engine grunt it's sounds very much like 900ss or all carb models from that period, but mine with less ponies under the tank, i'm still looking for 888 but no joy at the moment.

  9. I'd love an 851/888. To compliment and keep my 916 company. Theyre uber sexy.

  15. You’ll miss an opportunity there, how often do you see these beauties come up sale especially in this condition. There’s still some good weather to be had before the weather turns for the worst too. :upyeah:

  17. I agree Scuddy, but my garage is a 1960's size fit for a ford anglia. I have a 1299S and a 916 in there, plus tools and 916 oem bits. Ive no room. Besides I am saving currently for 1299S's replacement. Which alas will not be a Ducati. Shock horror. (unless a 1098R tempts me at just the right moment) I want to do track days and a lot of them. Im aiming for an R1M probably, maybe. I'll always have my 916. Shes forever.

  19. Lol, you obviously have more spare money than me. Plus I have a couple of scroungers. Daughter and Granddaughter. Freeloading bastards. :)
