250 (Mike's Twins)
In 1959 the young British rider, Mike Hailwood™,
seemed to have destiny on his side. He was an extraordinarily
talented rider, his father, Stan Hailwood, an extremely
wealthy man, provided him with financial backing and connections
in the biking world. Only one thing was missing –
the right bike. With the creation of the Ducati 250, Mike,
one of the greatest racers of all time, began his legendary
relationship with Ducati.
The Mike Hailwood™ Replica, the latest development
of the renowned 900 Super Sport, was produced by Ducati
to celebrate its first World Championship title. Created
for hard-core Ducatisti, the bike was not even fitted with
an electric starter. Stately and impressive, it was truly
a biker’s bike.
