Ducati 888 SP 0 Strada

i allready tried to search, a few post but only brought up questions. from what i found out the strada uses the p8 and the strada engine has the words 4v on the top of the heads. forgive my ignorance but i no idea what a p8 computer like vs other ducati and my engine has 4v DOHC on the heads, not 4v. soo confused. anyway, its a 98 916 mono, red white number plates on the that say ducati 916 and has an ohlins shock. does anyone if it is a strada or sp? thanks for the help.


All early 916 Bikes had the P8 CPU Strada and SP) from your you’re trying to determine model you have. Personally not worry about the CPU for identification.

If the white plate is added at a later then it is likely to be missing the (PS no 916 SP was fitted with a number the race plate only the 888 SP’s had this feature)

In short identifying an original 916 SP is going to be difficult, for me the most indicator will be the Dual injectors and a VIN check from
