Ducati was established in 1926 by Antonio Ducati and his sons, initially producing electrical components. After WW2 they moved into motorcycles with the Cucciola, essentially a pushbike with a clip-on engine but by the 1960s had become associated with performance bikes selling a range of sporty 250 and 350 singles. In response to the demand for larger capacity bikes chief engineer Fabio Taglioni designed the classic V Twin bevel drive engine first used in the 1971 GT750. This proved to be an immediate success, helped considerably by Paul Smarts win in the 1972 Imola 200 race. This started a long tradition of race-winning V twins that have gone on to dominate World Superbike racing over the years. In spite of all Ducatis continued success probably their most famous victory was Mike Hailwoods amazing comeback victory in the 1978 Formula 1 race after retiring many years before.

The MH900E was designed by Pierre Terblanche as an homage to Mike Hailwood's 1978 racing motorcycle with a sketch was presented to the general public at the 1998 Intermot Show in Munich. Ducati posted a questionnaire on their website to test the interest of the MH900e fans and Federico Minoli and Massimo Bordi decided to produce a limited run of two thousand hand-built bikes that would be sold directly to the consumer exclusively via the Internet. The Ducati website opened for orders on January 1, 2000 at 00:01am GMT at a price of Euro15,000 and the first 1,000 units were sold out in 31 minutes with the remaining bikes being sold over the next few weeks. This MH900 is number 0966 of the 2000 manufactured and has not been ridden or run from new with the speedo still reading zero miles. The bike comes together with all of its original presentation items including an unused dust cover, genuine paddock stand and a commemorative plaque still in its box. Also included is the presentation T shirt, individually numbered 0966 like the bike, never worn and still in its original packaging, both keys and all of the instruction manuals. The bike has never been registered but the vendor has recently applied for a V5C. A unique opportunity to aquire one of the more collectable Ducatis in as new condition.
