1986 Ducati 1000 MHR
VIN. ZDM1000R 100677

'In 1984, motorcycle production at Ducati was in steep decline... After producing almost 7,000 motorcycles in 1981, Ducati production in 1984 reached fewer than 2,000 bikes.' Robert Smith, Motorcycle Classics

Indeed, following a change of hands between two government-controlled company at the end of the 1970s, EFIM to VM Group, and the market being flooded with fast, comfortable, efficient, and generally cheaper Japanese motorcycles, Ducati sales were dramatically dropping.

While VM Group pretty much threw the towel on the motorcycling efforts, Fabio Taglioni and his small team continued work on developing the potential of the Pantah engine and Ducati's racing presence.

A landmark model, the Mike Hailwood Replica owes its existence to Mike 'The Bike's' legendary Isle of Man TT comeback victory in the 1978 Production Race riding an ex-works NCR bike entered by Sports Motor Cycles. Out of top-flight bike racing for seven years and away from the Island for eleven, Mike beat the might of the Honda works team to win the Formula 1 TT at record speed. Ducati lost little time in capitalizing on this outstanding success, launching a road-going replica the following year, which kept Ducati afloat for several years.

Like the race-bike, the MHR was based on the production 900SS, but - inevitably - had much more in common with the latter than the former. Most obvious difference was the full fairing finished in red, green and white, complemented by a glass fiber tank and racing seat. Mechanical changes were confined to lighter wheels, usually by Campagnolo, and improved Brembo brakes, while the MHR's performance was pretty much the same as that of the 900SS: around 135mph flat-out.

Of the Ducati production in 1984 of fewer than 2,000 bikes some 662 were MHRs and thus there was hope.

The bike was bought by its current owner in the early-2000s and ridden with passion, which now gives it the right amount of patina. For the last five years it has been on static display in a controlled environment and not ridden, although it was running before it was garaged. It would likely benefit from a cleaning of the entire fuel system, and mechanical overhaul prior to being put back in service and being able to admire the glass gear-gazer.
