2006 800ss specifications

I am interested in a 2006 800ss and wanted to research some of the specifications. While older Ducs can be found on ducati.com, they do not have the specifiations for the 06 800ss. Questions such as swingarm metal, adjustable forks, etc. are of interest.

Does anyone know where I can find the complete specifications for a 2006 800ss?

Thank you kindly

They are identical to the '04-'05 800. The only difference (and I think this started with the '05??) is the red frame/black wheels color combo. If you can find the '05 specs on the Ducati site archives or something, you're in business.

'04 800SS...Strati Pipes, 42t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, ABM Rotors, Carbon Lorane pads, Cogent-Dynamics Forks & Ohlins Shock.

'05 749s...Termi 54mm full system, 41t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, PCIII/custom map, Pazzo Levers, Puig DB Windscreen, Penske Shock, CRS Forks, CF everything.

Thank you, it is exactly what I was looking for. Though I can not tell if the forks are fully adjustable.

The local dealer has one with about 700 miles for about $7k. I have not seen it yet nor do I know if it has any accessories.

I am coming from owning two Multistradas, the last of which was just totaled thanks to a driver under the influence. The 800ss will be the bike to tool around and more specifically for track usage. With a dry weight of about 380, this looks to be like a nice bang for the buck.

While I had the ohlins version of the Multi, it would be nice to have a Ducati with a correctly working fuel gauge, clock and speedometer (or am i just clicking my heels here?)

Thanks again

Forks are NOT adjustable on any 800s, excepting the 2003.

Well, if I may...if you are leaning toward the "more specifically for track useage" then you should consder shopping for a nice, clean, 749! If you have a MS for the street a 749 track bike would be a very nice addition. I've done both on the street and on the track and as much as I love my SS (sorry Pete...my wife's), there's still no comparison to that 749. Especially on the track. Just something to think about. I haven't shopped around but I bet you can find some smokin deals right now. Quite a few people will be trying to unload them to get an 848 in the near future.

No...mine's not for sale!!

'04 800SS...Strati Pipes, 42t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, ABM Rotors, Carbon Lorane pads, Cogent-Dynamics Forks & Ohlins Shock.

'05 749s...Termi 54mm full system, 41t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, PCIII/custom map, Pazzo Levers, Puig DB Windscreen, Penske Shock, CRS Forks, CF everything.

No offense taken mate.

I am reminded, though, that we have not seen any recent pictures of her and, as many of us older riders are forced to live vicariously through you, perhaps you could see fit...?
