NCR Mike Hailwood TT

NCR Mike Hailwood TT
In 1979, ‘Mike The Bike‘ Hailwood swung his leg over a Ducati 900 NCR and won the Isle of Man TT. It was a legendary performance, and NCR has honored the 30th anniversary by producing a stunning replica based on the Ducati Sport 1000. This superlight racer weighs just 136kg, with the titanium frame accounting for only 5kg (11lbs) of that. The exhaust system is also titanium, while the bodywork and wheels are carbon fiber. Power comes from a new NCR 1120cc race engine producing 130hp, over 40hp more than Hailwood’s race-winning machine. Just twelve of these replicas will be built, at a cost of €100,000 ($136,000) each, and they’ll be delivered in six weeks time during the 2009 Isle of Man TT festival.

    My father and I were totally awed to be able to see and touch this most perfect specimen of 2 wheeled machinery(perhaps of ANY machinery on the planet) at the Red Bull Grand-Prix in Indianapolis during this seasons’(2009)race, inside Ducati Island.In my humble opinion,how on earth does it get any better than this?
