Built to celebrate Mike the Bike’s comeback triumph at the ’78 Isle of Man TT, the Ducati 900 MHR (Mike Hailwood Replica) was initially produced solely for homologation purposes. As such, just 200 were built in 1979. But demand was so high that Ducati decided to keep production going, and by the end of the run in 1986 the Italian firm had built approximately 7,100 examples – meaning that even though Ducati originally wanted it to be limited production, it ended up being the best selling bevel-drive twin they ever built.
It also means values can vary quite a bit depending on the year of production. Regardless, basic specifications include a 72 horsepower, 863cc V-Twin with a 5-speed gearbox and a top speed of 137 miles per hour.
This example has repainted fairings (the front and lowers), while the “engine has a nice patina and the wheels are original and shiny.” It’s got 19,935 miles and it’s been with the seller since 1999.
