2002 Ducati MH900evoluzione
Frame no. ZDM1LA4N72B001553
Engine no. RA42013231
At one minute after midnight in the new Millennium, the Ducati Mike Hailwood 900evoluzione was offered for sale exclusively on the Internet. Within 31 minutes, the 500 bike first year's production was sold. Over the next three months, the remaining 1500 to be built were contracted. Designed by Pierre Treblanche, known for some of Ducati's most striking designs such as the Multistrada and Hypermotard, the MH900e was originally a concept bike meant as an homage to Mike Hailwood and his win on a Ducati V-twin in the 1978 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, arguably the second biggest Ducati racing win in history.

The vendor was the original purchaser of this example. He acquired No. 1681 of the 2000 made in January 2002. It shows only 123 miles, and is absolutely original except for the addition of a Termignoni exhaust system, which adds another 20 horsepower. Besides the bodywork, these motorcycles have many parts unique to this model including the swing arm, rims, sump cover, triple clamps and many more. This ultimate Ducati collectable comes with a clear title, copy of the Certificate of Origin, an authenticity plaque in a display case as well as the original manual and tool kit. It is hard to imagine a finer example of this cross between a tractable rider and a museum piece.
