Jakusa Reimagines Ducati’s MH900e As A Modern V4 Hyper-Cafe-Racer Moto

After emerging from retirement following an extended 11-year hiatus, Mike Hailwood went on to win the 1978 Isle of Man TT on an NCR-prepped Ducati 900 racer, cementing his status as a bonafide legend in the motorcycle world. Ducati initially celebrated “Mike the Bike’s” historic TT win the following year in ’79 with the release of the wildly-successful MHR900 (or “Mike Hailwood Replica”), before honoring the motorcycling icon again in 2001 via the release of the Ducati MH900e (or “Evoluzione”): a Piere Terblanche-designed, limited edition model inspired by Hailwood’s NCR racer.

With Ducati having recently introduced a new powertrain configuration for the first time in over half-a-century, seasoned concept artist and motorcycle designer, Jakusa Design, has reimagined the limited-to-2,000, turn-of-the-millennium Hailwood tribute, bestowing the MH900e with the 200hp+ V4 powertrain, chassis, and general design language of the Bologna brand’s latest flagship superbike model. Dubbed the “MH900H” (or “Heritage”), this new Jakusa concept sports a sleek, modern take on a traditional cafe half-fairing with aerodynamic winglets and an LED headlight, a Panigale-inspired tail with an under-seat exhaust, and the bare aluminum tank and carbon fiber fender from Ducati’s top-shelf R-spec bikes.
