No, you haven't activated a Instagram filter and your computer monitor has not switched over to monochrome, this really is an all gray and black Ducati MH900e.
The MH900e is a pretty polarizing bike among sportbike fans. Some naysayers consider it merely a Ducati design and marketing exercise, an affront to the Mike Hailwood name. These people tend to point to the fact that it wasn't a repli-racer/true sport bike and how from a technical standpoint the bike wasn't any major revelation; it came with the same 904 cc twin engine that powered the 900SS, a unit which only produced 75 bhp. Plus the MH900e had an oddball riding positing with a long reach to the bars as well as a pretty small gas tank.
Meanwhile fans of the MH900e tend to point to the Terblanche design, which admittedly was unlike anything Ducati had produced up to that point. They also often reference the fact that the MH900e was a 2000 unit/2 year limited production and how there is still no shortage of collectors still highly interested in this rolling piece of artwork.
While the normal MH900e has made regular appearances here on RSBFS, those bikes have been mostly pristine/Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) bikes. This particular MH900E has had some major cosmetic work done, with the frame being blacked out, the rear tail unit and exhausts being modified, and the wheels and bodywork shifted to a nice dark gray color scheme. Personally I think this improves the look of the MH900E tremendously, moving it from oddball to object of desire.
Here is what the seller has to say;
Build number 143
Has a reasonable 11,000 miles on it.
The frame was powder coated black and the bodywork was professionally painted in an immaculate battleship gray.
Wheels powder coated to match.
LED turn signals, Minimirrors,
Modified Staintune carbon exhaust, which is a bit shorter than stock.
Belts, plugs, oil, and pads were all recently changed.
So whats this MH900e worth? Personally I think this bike looks great but I don't think its going to appeal to a collector as these people tend to like the MH900e in OEM condition with ultra low mileage The Buy-It-Now price is 20,000 USD which isnt cheap but is actually 10k less than another MH900e listing on ebay. Perhaps this one will appeal to someone who was on the fence about the MH900e, who liked the design but thought it was a bit too outlandish.
