The Scrambler from Ducati is among the most important motorcycles of the modern era and has been designed from inception to be a motorcycle that will be improvised upon and modified by its owners. Thus no wonder, the moment this simple modern classic entry level Ducati motorcycle came into the market for the masses, it was showered with love from custom builders all over the world. Now when the whole world was diving deep into the frenzy of the utterly gorgeous yet mechanically simple Scrambler from Ducati, then how could the people from Thailand, the country where the motorcycle is manufactured, stay behind? Thailand is a country that loves motorcycles and their passion can be seen in the amount of two wheelers that are sold in that country along with the sheer range of them too. So no wonder they turned up with this stunning Ducati Scrambler Mike Hailwood Replica.
The Thailand branch of Ducati is one passionate group of people that are known to create some really special one off builds of Ducati’ already stunning designs and have a tendency to make these gorgeous machines even more drool worthy. This time around they took on the mantle to create a fitting custom build Scrambler inspired by Mike Hailwood and the result is this Ducati Scrambler Mike Hailwood Replica and it is nothing short of utter magnificence. To be made in a seriously limited number of 58 units, out of which 25 units have already been accounted for this Scrambler Icon based build to-die-for.
To start off with, the build uses the same 803cc power plant from the Scrambler Icon and has the stunning combination of Red and Green paint scheme as it biggest attention seeking and striking element and detailing such as those subtle white pinstripes and panels, great looking custom-shaped side panels and a tail section that looks oh so simply outstanding that makes this custom build Scrambler an absolute eye candy. The blokes at Ducati Thailand have left the Ducati Scrambler Mike Hailwood Replica in its basic naked attire but have given it an authentic flair of the 70’s with its tinted fly screen mounted on a rounded front cowl. Not just the aesthetic but we believe that the bikini fairing would also aid is deflecting the wind blast on the street naked too.
On the build front, the Ducati Thailand people have given the Ducati Scrambler Mike Hailwood Replica a bespoke and stunning tail section that sees the turn signals to be integrated into it smartly. For the rest of the build, the makers seems to have gone deep into the Scrambler aftermarket catalog to dress the motorcycle with equipment like the dual Termignoni silencers that without effort fall back to the two-stroke era, there are grips from the Panigale range while the golden wheels to seem to have come from Ducati listings, however the use of that exhaust unit is the most welcome of the additions.
After all this, before you ask about the cost of all this build, then we should first tell you the sad golden rule, ‘nothing fancy is ever cheap’ and the story continues here as well. At 699,000 Thai Bhat, that roughly translates in $19,800 which should mean around €17,750 is no where into ‘cheap and entry level’ category and that excludes that shipping and other miscellaneous charges. Still, if you have or can manage that sort of money, then this Ducati Scrambler Mike Hailwood Replica is totally worth it. You better should hurry as there aren’t many left and don’t say we didn’t tell you this earlier.
