Marketing a Mike Hailwood Replica was an obvious way for Ducati to reap the benefit of the racing champion’s outstanding Isle of Man TT win aboard the Desmo V-Twin in 1978. The MHR was originally made in a batch limited to 500 units, but sales success kept it in production well into the 1980’s. A cosmetic, rather than a mechanical replica, the MHR was based on the existing 900SS V-Twin Roadster, renowned for its lusty performance and stable handling. Certainly, this bike represents a rare opportunity to own an un-molested original example of this true classic.
