1986 DUCATI MIKE HAILWOOD REPLICA
Mike Hailwood’s legendary Isle of Man comeback victory, after a 12 year hiatus from motorcycle racing, in the 1978 Formula 1 TT provided Ducati with not only their first World Championship, but an almost endless stream of publicity and led the following year to the introduction of the Mike Hailwood Replica (MHR 900). Meant as a limited production model to celebrate the Isle of Man victory, it became in the 1980s the company’s best selling model. With its Bosch electronic ignition, 9.5 to 1 compression ratio, and dual 40mm Dell’Orto carbs, the engine produced 72HP. The double steel cradle frame machine rolled on 18” cast alloy wheels. In 1984, the engine size was increased to 973cc with the bike named the MHR Mille. Final year of production was 1986. This MHR 900 carries the CA license plate MHRDUC. It is in stunning original condition with only a front fairing repaint. A factory brochure is included. This bike has a clear CA title.
