There are multiple motorcycles out there inspired by Mike Hailwood, but the Ducati MH900e Evoluzione is the most visually extreme. 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 has about 6,000 miles and it stands out as it comes with two sets of bodywork – one is the original and one is custom painted carbon fiber. The engine was blueprinted/balanced by DucShop and there’s a bunch of upgrades including forks prepped by Cogent Designs, Ohlins shock and Staintune exhaust.
