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.

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!
