Mike Hailwood edition Ducati Scrambler

The most gorgeous custom Scrambler yet?

DUCATI Thailand has created a Mike Hailwood-inspired Scrambler, featuring unique graphics, bodywork and styling, and limited to 58 bikes worldwide.

It costs 699,000 Thai Bhat, which is approximately £14,029. At the time of writing, 25 have been sold.

The Hailwood Scrambler is a customised Scrambler Icon and the bike’s 803cc L-twin engine has been left in standard form, with the majority of changes being made to the bike's styling.

The Hailwood Scrambler wears a small noise fairing with tinted screen, meant to give the bike a bit of a 1970’s look. The fuel tank has been given a custom paint job and the livery takes inspiration from the Ducati 900SS ridden by Hailwood in his comeback race after an 11-year hiatus from racing.

The 900SS influence continues into the single seat unit, which has been created specifically for this bike, and is designed to resemble the seat unit from the 900SS. It's set off by an under-seat panel complete with cut outs and a retro Desmo graphic.

Other styling changes include the rear indicators, which have been integrated into the seat unit and sit next to the rear light.

The billet aluminium mirrors are from the Scrambler accessories catalogue and the gold wheels are a nice touch too.

A couple of performance orientated changes include the Ohlins rear shock plus a Termignoni exhaust system, and to make the bike feel more aggressive, the Hailwood Scrambler also gets a specially made handlebar and the grips from a Panigale. With only 58 Hailwood Scramblers being made, each one comes complete with a numbered aluminium plate behind the seat.

According to the Scrambler Hailwood website, the bike came about as a result of Paul Smart introducing the owner of Ducati Thailand to Mike's wife Pauline, and the pair talking about creating a custom Scrambler.

Speaking about the bike, Pauline said: ‘By becoming the owner of this bike, you have not only acquired a special limited edition motorcycle, but also made a sound investment into the legend of Mike Hailwood.’
