Post-Listing Update: Despite being relisted, this Ducati MH900E Custom did not meet reserve at $13,600.

I’ve covered plenty of examples of the MH900E before, but this is an absolute knockout thanks to the customizer’s decision to eschew the usual red and go with battleship gray. Originally a sketch from the legendary Pierre Terblanche, Ducati got plenty of positive feedback and decided to post a survey on their website to see if its 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.

The MH900e used the engine from a 900SS (75 horsepower) but the lower gearing and fuel injection from a Monster 900, helping acceleration figures. A couple of interesting features did not make the jump from concept to production, including exhaust-integrated rear turn signals and a rearview camera/display. Owners were given a matching red paddock stand, plaque, and t-shirt, all of which incorporated the production number of their specific bike.

This specific Ducati MH900E Custom is number 1,434 of 2,000 and was stripped down to the frame, during which the frame was painted black and the bodywork and wheels were painted battleship gray. There’s a few other cosmetic mods, and it comes with a Staintune carbon exhaust. I adore this bike in this color scheme – hopefully you do, too.
