Featured Listing: Carbon-Bodied 2002 Ducati MH900e for Sale

Italian bikes are sometimes accused of putting style before function, but I think it's more accurate to say that they prioritize performance and style over comfort and practicality... But in the case of the Ducati MH900e, style was far and away the most important priority, and everything else came after. Penned by Pierre Terblanche, the MH900e was meant to evoke Mike "The Bike" Hailwood's race-winning Isle of Man TT NCR-prepped machine and the replica MHRs that followed. The "e" at the end of the name was for "Evoluzione" as the bike is the spiritual successor of those storied machines.

The MH900e's concept bike looks are wild and impractical, but its beating heart is Ducati's long-serving oil and air-cooled two-valve L-twin. Displacing 904cc, the twin pumps out an honest 75hp at the rear wheel along with respectable midrange torque. It's obviously not a powerhouse, but the 410lb machine has Ducati's race-bred frame geometry and quality suspension at both ends. The riding position is committed, with a long reach to low bars over the tank, high rearsets, and a tall seat that requires long legs if you want to put your feet flat at traffic lights.

Frankly, there are just two things really stopping the bike from being a great back-road bike like the later Sport Classics: the brutal ergonomics and the insane, Harley Sportster-sized fuel tank. The ergonomics you can justify, but the tiny, 2.2 gallon tank means about 90 miles between stops, even with the two-valve twin's surprisingly decent mileage. It's a little shocking, since the bike looks like it'd have a generously-sized fuel cell, but most of what you're looking at is apparently an airbox.

Luckily, California Cycleworks makes a much larger 4.6 gallon unit that doesn't require any permanent modifications to the bike to install. It appears to still be available and would make the bike much more practical. With just 2,000 produced between 2001 and 2002, they're rare and valuable enough that most seemed doomed to a life as display pieces, but that's a shame, considering the excellent handling, solid reliability, and easy-to-service engine.

It is unfortunate that the original bodywork and other parts don't seem to be included, but the Ducati Performance panels are obviously an appropriate modification and look great, even if exposed carbon fiber reduces the visual ties to the red and silver of the original NCR bikes. The bike also includes a set of Staintune exhausts that look very similar to the stock system but let the bike sound more appropriately Ducati-ish. Considering the prices of Sport Classics these days, the $19,800 asking price seems pretty reasonable, and is in line with other examples of the MH900e that we've seen lately.

All required maintenance has been performed by PJ's Ducati/ Triumph in Albuquerque. Everything pictured in photo bucket album, plus a bit more is included in the sale. To sum it up, this is a; “turnkey collectors dream.” The Ducati is beyond explanation and my poor photo skills can't bring out the true quality of the motorcycle. You're buying a virtually new 2000 Ducati 996S with factory options. I'm the second owner and I have a clear title for the Ducati.

The Ducati has never seen a rainy day, never been abused, tracked, wrecked or dropped. Always stored in my garage on stands and covered. Started weekly and run up to temp, to maintain seal integrity. Oil has been changed every 6 months and coolant flushed every year. It's as you see it from the factory. All maintenance is up-to-date. It's a definite garage king.;-)

2006 NCR (Ducati) Millona R #14 Of 30 In Arizona

What to do if you've grown bored of Bimota's and Ghezzi-Brian's, I would think a NCR Millona should do the trick!  Located in Scottsdale, Arizona is a 2006 NCR Millona R with 2,373 miles.  NCR is an Italian company known for outfitting Ducati riders with everything from aftermarket rear wheel nuts to full titanium frames.  NCR started in 1967 producing parts to improve the Ducati 250 twins then went on to produce parts/bikes for Mike Hailwood to win the Formula 1 World Title on and Ducati's WSB effort.  In 2005, the Millona became the first bike that NCR designed and produced to enter production.  The top shelf Millona, the One Shot, weighs in at an unbelievable 264lbs.  Here is what NCR has to say about the Millona:

MILLONA aims at a specific market niche. It is meant for those who can appreciate a unicum, a high-class article, for those who love owning art or particularly precious watches, but most of all it is meant for those who share a passion for mechanic and technique in their purest form, for race lovers who get on the track to race like their idols, who have Ducati and the “desmo” in their DNA: they are the Ducatisti.

Each MILLONA is entirely hand built, by NCR technicians, with utmost attention and care for the smallest detail and particular.

NCR managed to built the only, true, thrilling racing bike.

Here is what the seller has to say about this particular example:

Engine:
Air cooled 2 valve Desmodromic 1100 cc Ducati L Twin
All bolts/fasteners titanium
Big bore kit with 1078cc Pistal pistons
Ducati Performance race cams
Heads ported, polished, flowed
Crank lightened, balanced
Light weight flywheel
Ducati Performance WSB Close Ratio Gearbox ($4,500 upgrade)
EVR slipper clutch
Sand cast magnesium timing case cover
Vented magnesium clutch side case cover
Carbon fiber airbox with carbon fiber ram air snorkels
Titanium clutch cover

Chassis:
ChroMoly trellis frame by NCR
Handmade aluminum swingarm by NCR (weighs 3.8 kg)
Triple clamps from billet aluminum by NCR
Carbon fiber subframe
Carbon fiber faring, gas tank, seat cowl,
Carbon fiber oil catch can, front fender, belly pan
Carbon fiber wheels by BST (racing version, not DOT street wheels)
WSB Brembo Monoblock calipers from billet w/ titanium pistons ($5,800 per set)
Brembo 2 titanium piston rear caliper from billet
Braking Wave rotors 300mm front, 200mm rear
Titanium / Aluminum Rearsets
Titanium / Aluminum Clip-ons
Dunlop NTec Slicks (med front, soft rear) new
Ohlins forks black anodized (same forks as 1098R)
Ohlins shock
Quarter turn throttle
Selection of sprockets to cover all ratios.
MyChron dash

The seller does mention that there are some slight imperfections that are hardly noticeable but are there such as light rock chips and light scratching.  The Millona R is the mid-level bike, essentially, the "S" version as Ducati would have it.  The asking price is $37,000 which isn't bad compared to the original price of over 65,000--And yes, that's a R7 in deprecation.  A Zard full titanium exhaust system is also available for an additional $3,300.  The seller states that this bike has been meticulously maintained.  See the NCR website here.  See the Pro Italia information for the Millona here.  Lastly, see the actual bike listing on Ducati.ms here.

1999 Ducati 996 SPS In California

This is a usable 996 SPS with less than 10k miles in California!  Located in San Francisco, California is a 1999 Ducati 996 SPS with 9,800 miles.  Let's get the big stuff out of the way first, this bike has been repainted as a Ducati Performance Paolo Casoli replica with a black powder coated frame.  The other features the seller mentions:

- Full Ohlins suspension - forks, rear shock and Damper - 5 Spoke Marchesini wheels - DP carbon fiber front fender, radiator cowl, airbox, rear chain guard and exhaust guard - Updated Yoyodyne clutch slave - Brembo billet brake and clutch master cyclinders - Brembo GP billet calipers - Full Termignoni 50mm exhaust system - Tecnosel seat - DP rear sets - DP clutch plate and clutch cover

The bike also comes with the original owner's handbook and Ducati rear stand.  This bike isn't original but the seller is realistic with an asking price of $9,600.  This bike has had the original Showa front suspension replaced with later Ohlin's units.  This isn't a bad looking bike by any means and would probably make a fantastic Homologation special that you could actually use.  See the other SPS Ducati's we've posted here.  See this bike on Craigslist here.
