Ducati Scrambler Dirt Track Concept Is One Evil Machine

In the absence of a better term, this is doubtlessly the best Ducati Scrambler we have seen so far, and we include in this comparison even photo manipulations or renderings. It hails from Thailand and is a creation of Ducati's local branch.

Revealed last fall after a long and sometimes frustrating teasing campaign, the Ducati Scrambler is enjoying a great success in all the markets, even though certain models are still to be delivered in some countries.When off-road grunt meets Italian sexiness
The Scrambler retained its characteristic attire but was dramatically changed. Brushed metal replaces the mellow colors inspired by the '70s, and aggressive lines have been used to stress out the bike's off-road DNA.

The stylish headlight is replaced by a square-ish flat front plate Mad Max could really use. The integrated headlight enjoys four cutaways in the tracker plate to replicate the daytime driving lights of the base model.

Scrambler stands for dirt fun, so the fenders had to go, also because they would most likely not fit any longer after Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires shod the bike.

The brushed tank shows off the texture of the metal, and the aluminium sidepanels were replaced by retro, yet awesomely stylish leather-clad ones. A CNC-machined fuel cap was also used.

Ducati Thailand wrapped the collectors and installed a racey, shorty exhaust can for some extra aggressiveness and possibly, extra horsies. The Scrambler Dirt Track Concept is ready to hit the dirt, but whoever rides it should better be careful on rocky trails: cast wheels are not exactly the best choice for serious off-road.
