A rare Ducati found after 20 years

The Ducati we are talking about is a rare MH900e from 2002, dedicated to Mike Hailwood; is the n. 988 of 2,000 units produced in all and was purchased new by the owner at Lake Country Powersports in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The two-wheeler has a red livery with silver graphics, and is powered by an air-cooled 904cc L-twin engine mated to a six-speed transmission.

The equipment includes a steel trellis frame, a single-sided swingarm, an inverted Showa fork, an adjustable monoshock, a steering damper, Brembo disc brakes, 17 ″ alloy wheels and a dual outlet exhaust system. Maintenance performed in preparation for sale is said to include battery and oil replacement. This model was locked in a wooden box for a full 20 years, and today the MH900e was purchased at auction for $ 25,500.

The 2002 Ducati MH900e

The MH900e was designed by Pierre Terblanche as homage to the Ducati NCR 900 winner of the 1978 Isle of Man TT by Mike Hailwood, and the half fairing is finished in red with silver graphics and vintage-style logos. The bike features a steel trellis frame and a single-sided swingarm finished in red, and additional features include an integrated clear windshield, mirrors, solo seat and aluminum side stand. The seller notes some small defects on the fairing and windshield, documented by the images.

The 17 ″ five-spoke alloy wheels are finished in silver and fitted with old 120/65 front and 170/60 rear Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The front brake pump has been replaced. The chrome dashboard has been replaced and contains a 10,000 rpm analog tachometer and digital information display. The digital odometer indicates 2,400 miles traveled. Total mileage is unknown. A label on the fuel tank cover indicates this motorcycle as number 988 of the 2,000 MH900evolution units produced.

The engine of the rare Ducati MH900e from 2022

The L-twin 904 cc air-cooled, it features an oil cooler, Marelli electronic fuel injection, desmodromic-actuated valves and an exhaust system with dual outlets. The factory rated power was 75 horsepower and 56 Nm of torque. The seller claims that the battery has been replaced and that the oil has also been changed for sale. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a dry multi-plate clutch, a six-speed transmission, and a drive chain routed through the single-sided swingarm reinforcement.

A numbered Ducati plate accompanies the bike to the new buyer, as well as an original manual, tool kit, owner’s t-shirt, rear stand, promotional material, copies of the original sales documents, copies of periodicals with the model and documents of service. The sale also includes the side panels of the numbered shipping crate, the auction ended on July 25 and the bike was sold for $ 22,500, a more unique than rare model (like those just sold) for a few enthusiasts.
