Custom Ducati Scramblers Star at Verona Bike Expo
25 Janvier 2016 - Autoblog
The Ducati Scrambler is already one of the most stylish motorcycles on the market because of its combination of simplicity and vintage design cues, but three customizers at the Verona Motor Bike Expo in Italy show that there's always room for more panache.
The Peace Sixty2 from a customizer called Mr. Martini transforms the Scrambler into a '60s racing bike with a large, rounded fairing and Plexiglas headlight cover. It almost wouldn't look out of place in an old photo of Ducatis racing at Monza. The red seat and rainbow stripe down the tank provide a nice pop of color, too. Mr. Martini came up with the bike's name out of a desire for harmony after the recent terror attacks in Paris.
The Revolution by Officine Mermaid also adopts a vintage style but takes inspiration from classic bobbers. The Scrambler now looks ready to cruise down the open road with its satiny black paint and gold pinstripes. Officine Mermaid also installs a custom leather seat and new fork yokes to complete the design.
Finally, the Artika by Dario Lopez Studio would be fun to ride in the current snowy weather. The bike takes inspiration from the Ducati Pantah ice racers of the late '70s, and its florescent yellow body and bright blue trim would be hard to miss in a blizzard. Studded Pirelli tires also provide some extra traction when things get slippery.
