Shortage of 16 inch tires

Post by hardo »

Dear Paso friends

It's a tiresome subject, but unfortunately there seems to be a shortage of 16 inch tyres again. As far as I know, only Shinko produces the SR 880/881 tyres in the correct format. Today I tried to order some tyres from the German supplier Schenk ( They told me: There are still some rear tyres available, but orders for front tyres are currently being collected worldwide. Shinko will only produce tyres if there are enough orders. This is understandable. If the old Ducati bikes are hardly ever ridden, then no more parts are needed. I will now put my name on the waiting list at Schenk (and pay half the deposit) in the hope that something will happen.

My request to the community: Please place your orders if you need tires in the near future, otherwise the issue will be over for all 16-inch Ducatis from the 1980s. That would be a great pity.

All the best, Hardo
