Ducati 900 S2

The Ducati 900 S2 was released in 1982 as a direct replacement for the Ducati 900 SS, this was to be a difficult assignment for the new S2 as many consider the 900 SS to be one of the finest L-twins ever built by Ducati, which meant the S2 had a tough act to follow….

If you have so much as a passing interest in highly engineered custom motorcycles, you’ll almost certainly have encountered the work of Pepo Rosell before.
