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.

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.
