This exclusive Ducati Scrambler Special Edition Mike Hailwood® is inspired by the Ducati 900SS that Mike Hailwood rode to victory during his legendary Isle of Man comeback in 1978, eleven years after his retirement from motorcycle racing. Mike’s first encounter with Ducati was in 1958 when he was just 18, 58 years ago. It is for this reason that we have produced the Ducati Scrambler Hailwood in a limited, numbered edition of 58 only. Honouring his love for motorcycles, this Hailwood Edition offers a unique interpretation of Italian sophistication and elegance, while also capturing the essence of why the world came to know him as “Mike the Bike”.In October 2015, the 1972’s Imola 200 winner Paul Smart has introduced Apichat Leenutaphong owner of Ducati Thailand to Pauline Hailwood (Mike’s wife), where the two have exchanged the idea about building a Scrambler Hailwood Edition. This bike is to be delivered in 2016 to commemorate the 58th anniversary since Mike’s first encounter with Ducati. In honouring Mike Hailwood®, only 58 units of this special edition Ducati Scrambler are to be produced.
In collaboration between Ducati Thailand and Hailwood family, this bike is a fully customised Ducati Scrambler Icon that features a number of special components that show the model’s high level of sophistication and exclusivity. The motorcycle proudly presents the same dynamic red, white and green livery as Mike’s race winning Ducati in 1978.“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,” Pauline Hailwood.Visit official website of Mike Hailwood®"http://www.mikethebike.com/
