Ducati Glasgow, a Ducati dealer from the United Kingdom has come up with a tricked out 848 model that shows the unbelievably exotic lines characterizing the 2009 model year. We’re not talking about a limited edition series, but about a one-of-a-kind motorcycle ordered by a very demanding customer that was willing to pay the £28,000 ($45,631) price.
The list of goodies includes Ohlins forks from a 1098R , complete with a 25mm TTX fork kit and an Ohlins TTX rear shock, also from a 1098R , but what definitely sets this bike apart from the standard £10,616 ($17,300) Ducati 848 is the Ducati Glasgow paintjob. Is this one sweet ride or what?

Ducati presented at Mazda Raceways Laguna Seca a new version of their middleweight supersport model. The 848 Nicky Hayden Edition was unveiled by the Ducati Star itself and it will be produced in a limited number of 100 units and sold only in the USA.
What sets this bike apart from the standard model is the special Hayden paintjob and the pilot’s autograph on the gas tank, but also the $14,495 price tag (only $500 more than what you would pay for the regular version ).
This bike is the first Ducati to receive an official racing paint job as far as we can remember. It does look very good, but we prefer our Ducati plain red, away from the busy Japanese paint jobs.
