I’ve been keeping an eye on Ducati Sport Classics recently when I spotted this rare beauty on eBayMotors; A 2001 Ducati MH900e Mike Hailwood Evoluzione:
quote from seller’s eBayMotors listing:
This bike is clearly a special, unique and very limited edition bike. Only 2000 made and released online thru Ducati’s website on Midnight of the New Year 2000.
I have all service records for this bike, including original manuals and the memorable numbered plaque. I also have the Red race stand it came with including the original crate face, which the number of the bike is printed 319 / 2000. The bike just got a complete full service at PRO ITALIA on 12/2/08. It has new tires, and the Stainless Staintune exhaust. I also have the red Ducati Cover, that has kept it covered and in great shape. The original exhaust is also available.
The bike has never been dropped or abused. The bike is turn key and ready for the road or for a collector. I have put ZERO miles on it since it was completely serviced at PRO ITALIA. Current Mileage = 3955
The MH900e was built as a tribute by then Ducati design chief Pierre Terblanche to commemorate the inspiration he attributed to Mike Hailwood winning the 1978 Tourist Trophy race. There were only 2000 of these bikes built, and only 500 made it to the U.S.
The seller has it listed with a $13.9k buy-it-now shown. Having covered only a few thousand miles, this looks like a great buy considering brand new Sport Classics go for about this much!
