MHR900 Ducati History

1978 is well known as the year Mike Hailwood triumphantly returned to the Isle of Man TT, pulling off a dramatic victory aboard a Sports Motorcycles-entered, factory prepared racing version of the 900ss. From this the Mike Hailwood Replica, a customised version of the SS was born. This was to take several forms following its introduction in 1979.

The first versions had a fiberglass cover over a steel fuel tank, but later on this gave way to a full-sized steel tank. Early models also had no side panels, but these were later added by the factory to give a tidier appearance. Seat designs have also varied, but on most models were a single/dual combined racing type in fiberglass.

Originally, the bike had Conti silencers, but the post-1981 machines sported more restrictive Silentiums. As on the SS, various wheels were used, including Campagnolo, Speedline, and FPS, but unlike the SS, the Replicas used Darmah(Nippon Denso) instruments and switchgear exclusively. All Hailwood Replicas (of MHRs) and 900SSs since 1979 used the Darmah engine as a basis.
