First shown to the public as a prototype in 1998 at the Intermot
Show in Munich, Germany, the Ducati MH900evoluzione was the
first motorbike to fully harness the power of the Internet to
generate sales. On January 1st, 2000, when the bike officially
went on sale the entire first years production was snapped up
online within hours.
The MH900e is a hand-built, limited edition (2,000 were made)
motorcycle designed by Pierre Terblanche recalling the racing
days of Mike Hailwood at the Isle of Man TT in the 1970's.
Terblanche describes the Ducati MH900e as "neo classical"
in design. This is apparent in the way the bike focuses on the
more essential elements of a motorcycle, namely the engine,
as design factors.
While being retro in appearance, the MH900e is thoroughly modern
underneath. The computer controlled, fuel injected, Ducati Desmo
twin cylinder engine is held in place by a Chrome Moly steel
trellis frame similar in spec to the Ducati 996 superbike.
