Ducati Multistrada MTS1000 SDS.
Ducati is a great motorcycle company.
In 2006, they released a special limited version of their upcoming retro café racer, the Sports S 1000.
2006 Ducati Paul Smart 1000 LE.
From the official Ducati website.
Englishman Paul Smart’s historic Imola 200 victory in 1972 on the 750 Imola Desmo marked the beginning of the modern Ducati racing era and the emergence of the big-bore twin, sport bike dynasty. The new Paul Smart Limited Edition is a tribute to Smart’s victory and the timeless styling of his silver racer.
The exclusive status of this limited edition, available only in a single-seat version, is confirmed by its highly advanced suspension components, a historic colour scheme and small production run of just 2000 examples worldwide. Each and every bike has an engraved centre fairing mount cap stating: “Ducati – Paul Smart 1000 – Limited Edition”.
2001 Ducati MH900E
This is not the first time they tried this. In 2000-01, they announced the production of a limited café racer called the MH900E. It’s styling cues were a bit more aggressive than the Paul Smart 1000.
Desmosedici RR, the road going version of the Ducati Moto GP, MSRP of 70000USD.
Ducati is well known for offering the first road going version of a Moto GP, the Desmosedici RR. This is the equivalent of owning a street legal F1 car. HP was about 200 for this version. Naturally they were all sold out before they went on sale.
A Ducati Sports S1000, MSRP of 12000 USD.
Basically, I was thinking about the MH900E and the Paul Smart 1000 LE. In the beginning, I couldn’t understand why people liked them. That is before I saw the MH900E. It’s lines were very interesting and a lot more striking that the PS1000LE. And before I knew it, I was researching both models on the net. To my eyes, I prefer the MH900E, it’s stance is more powerful and more aggressive. I would probably get that one for my garage. And at 480000 NTD (about 13700 USD) it is a lot more affordable than the PS1000LE, which is 800000 NTD (22800 USD).
