In 2000, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Ducati 748SPS, a sports machine dressed in a full fairing that delivered better performance than the standard model. The SPS model's engine was more powerful, while the machine came as a monoposto (single seat).

The Ducati 748SPS was a more powerful version of the standard model. The base machine debuted in 1994 as a smaller displacement version of the Ducati 916 model. Both machines were identical, except for the rear tire size and smaller displacement of the 748 model.

The bike was fitted with standard features in the aesthetic department, such as a full fairing with dual headlights, a small windscreen, a single seat, an under-seat-mounted exhaust system, a single-sided swingarm, and five-spoke Marchesini wheels.

The suspension system comprised a 43 mm fully-adjustable USD Showa fork on the front and an adjustable Showa shock absorber with progressive linkage on the rear, offering excellent suspension performance and handling.

The bike's wheels were fitted with two 320 mm discs and four-piston calipers on the front and a 220 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear, delivering excellent stopping power.

In the performance department, the 2000 Ducati 748SPS had installed a 748cc four-stroke liquid-cooled V-twin engine that delivered an output power of 110 hp at 11,000 rpm and 75 Nm (55 lb-ft) torque at 8,700 rpm.
