Turn of the Century: 2002 Ducati MH900e with 937 miles!

MH900e_8

MHe owners rejoice! Your chance to cash in on the internet-hyped, Italian wrought, collector-stashed MH900 evoluzion is apparently right now. We who spend our lives at the RSBFS offices - intently searching for the best of the best - have noticed a not too subtle trend here. Quite simply: MHe bikes are showing up in the market more often, and they are commanding ever-higher prices.

MH900e_5

The good news is plentiful. Firstly, as these were primarily collector bikes, most have very low miles (such as this sub-1k example), all have been very well taken care of, and some have gone to the extreme of being housebroken (such as this bike here). MHe ownership also brought with it some tidy extras - a color matched swingarm stand, shirt, numbered plaque and bike cover.

From the seller:

2002 Ducati MH900e
1559 out of 2000 manufactured, vin number ZDM1LA4N52B000868

Clear California Title, current PNO. I am the second owner of this motorcycle since 2005, having purchased it from my friend at Moto Corsa in Portland. It has traveled a total of 937 miles in probably ten uses. The rest of the time it has been a piece of art in my loft. It is bone stock with no modifications. I recently replaced the batteries. I start it regularly and bring it to operating temperature (much to the dismay of my neighbors) Kept on battery tender it is ready to enjoy either as static or rolling art. This Ducati shows no sign of wear or blemishes at all. No oil leaks or discoloration. A remarkable piece to be sure. I have with this bike the numbered plaque, manuals, and all keys. I do not have the tee shirt nor the red pit stand. I guarantee the new owner compete satisfaction with this beautiful piece of art. Interesting trades are interesting.

MH900e_1

The MHe was sold out the first day it was offered - January 1, 2000. This was carefully orchestrated by Ducati to celebrate the millenium. And while Ducati eventually built twice as many units as the 1,000 originally announced, these bikes continue to impress with artistic good looks and a coveted rarity. Such was not always the case however - the MHe went through a pricing slump based the additional units, and comments on the less than ideal riding experience (i.e. lack of comfort, small fuel tank, illegible warning lights, etc.). The rebound on this model has been strong, however, and MHe models are selling for more than ever.

MH900e_7

This bike is located in California, and is claimed to be all original. The pictures show a good example stored in the ideal climate controlled environment; inside the house. The miles are low, the pictures are high res, and the BIN on this bike is a cool $22,900. Is this higher than the market will bear? We have seen crazy price jumps on several bikes this year, and the MHe might just be the next model to make that list. Check out this beautiful bike here, and let us know where you think the market is headed. Is collecting back in style, or is it time to cash out? Good Luck!

MH2K: 2001 Ducati MH900e Evoluzione

For Sale: 2001 Ducati MH900e Evoluzione

When introduced on January 1, 2000, this modern remake of the Mike Hailwood memorial model was more Tron than "Mike the Bike." The internet ferver (it was available for sale online only) was built to a fever pitch, and the entire model lineup sold out on that first day. This is #1935 of a total 2000 built.

Utilizing many of the components of the modern sport classic line, the MH900e is powered by the familiar two valve Desmo, air cooled, 90 degree L-twin. This unit pumps out good torque and a great bass note, but is not equal to the higher reving units found on the Desmoquattro models. The rest of the chassis is pure MHe, including a single sided rear swingarm, unique seat cowl and high mounted "shotgun" exhaust pipes.

From the seller:
Perfect condition.

# 1935 of 2000 in existence.

Serviced by BMW Ducati Husqvarna Motorcycles of Atlanta last weekend. Please feel free to call them about the bike.

I have original key, rear tire sturdy stand, Owners Manual and a nice helmet to go with the bike. I do not have the tee shirt.

The bike is in perfect working condition and without flaw. Museum quality.

I am the sole owner.

These MHe machines have had an interesting history in terms of pricing. Initially, pricing went through the roof when demand exceeded supply and the hype had yet to settle. The bikes then went through a marked downturn as folks moved on to the next big thing from Ducati, MV Agusta, Bimota and others. A few years ago, these were $9k-$12k purchases. Recent activity might suggest the cost of entry is going up.

This seller is asking what can only be described as absurd money for this MH900e. With an opening bid of $17,000 (with reserve still in place), to a sky high $25,000 Buy It Now - these are RC30 numbers! Still, this is a one owner bike with a mere 300 claimed miles - not many for a revolutionary bike that is now 12 years old. To see more about the bike, click the link and jump over to the auction. Is this a bucket-bike for any of our readers? Be sure and let us know!

2002 Ducati MH900e For Sale in Rhode Island with Just 80 Miles

Need a new display piece for the den? Perhaps this MH900e with only 80 miles will fit the bill.

from the seller:

This is #1907 of 2000 of these special edition models. I've used it only as (heated, dehumidified) garage art, up on a stand, looking pretty. A beautiful piece of mechanical sculpture. It comes with the Ducati stand, a spare set of directional signals, and factory manuals.

So what would you do if you could throw down on this one? Would you keep it a display piece, or arrive at meets on rare occasion in perfect weather to everyone's envy, or would you put this one right into regular duty? While I'd love to think I could do ride it often, I think it has to be relegated to to a collection right?

Zero Miles: 2002 Ducati MH900E

For Sale: 2002 Ducati MH900E

From the sunny State of Florida - home to gorgeous riding weather mostly year 'round - comes this ZERO mileage example of a modern day collectable Ducati: the MH900e. Designed as a contemporary remake of the legendary Mike Hailwood editions of the late 1970s and early 1980s, the original MHe was released on January 1, 2000 as an internet-only sale. The limited edition and numbered bike sold out on the same day. From that point forward, prices on these rare machines have been on the rise.

This particular MH900e appears to have been housebroken from an early age. There is no doubt that it does look good indoors! The seller claims "zero" miles, however there are no pictures of the odometer listed. While many machines have some minor mileage as the result of factory or dealer prep, it is not unheard of for buyers to circumvent the delivery mileage for purposes of collectability. This might be one such rare machine.

From the seller:
Its Simple!

This Bike is one of a kind, its absolutely BRAND NEW with ZERO MILES, its has never been ridden on the street, it came directly from the dealer to my house on a flat bed.

I am reluctantly selling this prized Ducati, my wife told me i have to, and our highly active kid's safety is at stake.

This bike is a 2002 and has been in our home as a piece of art for the last 9 years.

if you are looking for one of these limited edition rear Ducati this one is for you.

Its # 1510

The MH900e has been regarded as a truly unique bike. Not simply another Ducati with a Limited Edition number sticker on the top triple clamp, the MHe look unlike any other Ducati in the lineup. The 900cc air cooled engine is shared with the Monster and SuperSport models, but the rest of the bike is all MHe. These are sharp-looking machines when seen in person, with reasonable performance on par with most 2-valve Ducati sportbikes. There are reports that the riding position is a bit extreme on these models, but riding is not the big draw for this particular auction.

This auction is going on right now, with an opening bid of $14,100 with reserve in place. The BIN is set for a stratospheric $21k - which would certainly be a record for one of these MHe machines (notwithstanding this seller looking for $1m for a pair of them in 2010). But since a bike can only be zero miles and "new" once, this seller definitely has an edge on the used market for thse modern Mike Hailwood replicas.

Beautiful Bike Art- 2002 Ducati MH900e

Location: Santa Rosa Valley, California

Mileage: 1,064

Price: Auction, $14,500 BIN

This bike is pretty much a piece of modern motorcycle sculpture. Called the Mike Hailwood Evoluzione at Ducati it's one of the most unique and stunning bikes built in my opinion. Just look at the swingarm. A piece of artwork in itself. At 75 hp, maybe the bike isn't the fastest thing on the road, or the most cutting edge. But it did have super cool one-off design, solid suspension pieces and Brembo brakes. And it will sure turn heads everywhere you go.

Many a MH900e featured here on RSBFS has been a low-mile collectible bike that hasn't been ridden much, if at all. Now, I'm not saying 1000 miles is a crazy amount of mileage, but on one these, it kind of is.

Here's the rest of the pics-

And here's the info from the seller-

2002 DUCATI MH900e...1 of only 500 imported to the US!

Rare Italian Sportsbike

#0919 of 2000 made

Only 1064 miles

California bike

You too can own this rare, awesome Italian sportsbike! This is #0919 of 2000 made to commemorate Mike Hailwood's 1978 Isle of Man Formula 1 Championship and is 1 of 500 imported to the US! With its light weight tubular trellis frame, L-Twin cylinder-2 valves per cylinder-Desmodromic air cooled motor with 904cc, Marelli electronic ignition, 6 speed transmission and its single-sided/single shock suspension, you will be taking on any canyon or country road with ease. This sportsbike has been upgraded with a chrome cam cover and Staintune exhaust. We are the 2nd owners and have all books and maintenance records. It is ALWAYS garaged and meticulously maintained! With only 1064 miles on it, this is the BEST BUY out there for this rare Italian sportsbike!  SERIUOUS BUYERS ONLY!

The MH900e goes for some big money. As the seller notes, they are a numbered, limited edition bike, the first bunch offered by Ducati online. They sold out in a matter of hours. Some low and zero miles models here have been offered for some seriously high prices (a pair for $995,000 anyone? Although the seller claimed half went to charity, still...). This bike is $14,500 BIN which may be a little high for a bike with 1000 miles. Other examples have been in this range, but with less mileage. I know you can't get a whole lot less than 1000, but with bikes like these, every mile counts.

So here's your chance if you've been looking. This is a beautiful bike. If you feel like you need to give it the new home it deserves, then place your bid!
