Hot bike.  They always bring good money.  The problem is that when they get over about where it is now itís only a rider for eccentric millionaires. Thanks for keeping us posted JJ.

As much as I (like many others ), appreciated the return of Mike "the Bike" to motorcycle racing and his  victory at the TT on the Sports Motorcycles  NCR bike,  I could do  (and did )very happily with a "regular" Bevel 900SS ( mine was a 1980 with Contis and 40 PHM kit ) . By comparison the MHR as served by Ducati always seemed (to me) bloated by comparison.  Performance gains over a 900 SS were minimal at best. A  visit to NCR  confirmed that any of the go fast and other bits like tanks, fenders seat, could be easily had if my wallet could stand it . Then at least it would be more like  a real NCR.,not just  a tarted up 900SS . For those who bought one as an investment, may they enjoy the rarity and/or profits at sale time .  Flame away if you must

That's not a "turn your head and cough," that's a "bend over."

I would have the the 750 GT being usable but these Starbucks bikes sure are getting spendy.

It got bid to AU $58,600.00 reserve not met.

I have to wonder based on high sales worldwide if people are having a think about life and money sitting in the bank based on 2020 and now 2021.

For a minute there I thought that Hailwood had arisen from the grave, determined to get one more win.
