Ducati Thailand has brought forth a highly exclusive and unique Scrambler variant which is dubbed the Scrambler Special Edition Mike Hailwood. Named for the highly respected MotoGP rider Mike Hailwood, also known as ‘Mike the Bike’.
Mike Hailwood is regarded by many as being one of the best racers of all time, having competed not only in MotoGP, but also Formula 1 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This exquisite machine draws its inspiration from Mike Hailwood, as well as the 1970s. This era’s influence is perhaps most pronounced in the nose fairing and in the livery which harkens back to Hailwood’s 900ss from 1978.
Other changes to the Hailwood edition include a new handlebar, Panigale handgrips, Ducati Performance rear view mirrors, a custom ‘monoposto’ seat, LED integrated rear indicators and much more. Suspension modifications include both an Ohlins rear unit and Kayaba upside down front forks. The Exhaust system, too, has been upgraded, with a Termignoni exhaust system.
Assuring the utmost exclusivity, only 58 examples will be sold, each adorning an aluminum number plate indicating which number of the 58 bikes it is on. Our peers at VisorDown report that at least 25 of have already been sold. As for price, the Hailwood edition costs nearly 700,000 Thai Bhat, just shy of $20,000 USD.
