2 Kilometers – 2002 Ducati MH900e

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Over on the auction site, we’ve got a never-ridden example of one of the most visually-extreme Ducatis in the last 30 years. Originally a sketch from the legendary Pierre Terblanche, the design got Ducati plenty of positive feedback so they decided to post a survey on their website to see if their passionate fans would actually buy a production version. 300 people said yes, so Ducati decided to build…2000 (half in the year 2000, and the other half in 2001). Continuing the website-based theme, Ducati offered the bikes for sale online – the first time any motorcycle manufacturer sold directly to the consumer. The first 1,000 bikes sold out in 31 minutes.

This example (VIN: ZDMV300AA1B001334) is one of the second batch as it’s #1,200 of 2,000. It came to us from a collection in Japan and we couldn’t believe that it still had protective film on the engine and cardboard on the oil cooler.

The odometer shows delivery mileage of 2 kilometers (1 mile).

It’s still on the original Michelin Pilot Sport tires so we left those alone, but we flushed the brake/clutch fluid, changed the engine oil/filter, and replaced the timing belts so the next owner can ride it if he or she wishes. I even did a little “Bike of the Day” video with this as I’ve yet to see one that’s so close to how it left the factory:

With that said, it’s unfortunately missing all the extras (matching t-shirt, plaque, stand, etc) that came as part of the original sale, which is obviously a bummer. Find this MH900e for sale in Santa Monica, California with bidding up to $21,100 and the reserve not yet met here on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
