Ducati engineered the Scrambler with excellent customization capabilities from scratch, thus allowing owners and bike builders a better way to express their own personalities and aspirations. Alongside the OEM Scrambler parts and accessories, these bikes can be equipped with innumerable bespoke add-ons, and the three new custom motorcycles Ducati showed at Verona are more than enough proof of that.
A message of peace

Peace Sixty2 comes from a workshop with a long tradition in custom Ducati. Mr. Martini's creation is an homage to the old-school racers that prowled the streets of Europe in the '60s and '70s, with an instantly recognizable bubbly front fairing and ample side panels.

A plexiglass windscreen protrudes lower to provide shielding for the Scrambler headlight while adding era-consistent looks. The Rear racing hump retains the rounded, fluid shapes of the machine, and complements the interesting multi-panel hand-crafted leather seat.

Peace Sixty2 also includes a high-end Termignoni silencer, and Mr. Martini says that the graphic details represent a message of peace. The bike took shape during the recent violent events in the French capital Paris, a city that Mr. Martini holds so dear.

Bobber the Revolution

Officine Mermaid is the second workshop Ducati chose, with their bobberized Scrambler Sixty2. Their bike was named Revolution, and is also a solo machine, with a rider-only seat crafted from genuine leather and which integrates the rear hump.

New yokes have also been employed in the build, as they had to accommodate the beefier front wheel the bobber "protocol" mandates. Leather was also used for the side number plates, and they exude a sober type of luxury. As for the rest of the build, all that was not crucially important for the operation of the Scrambler was scrapped.

Not sure how well the black tape fits into the big picture, as Officine Mermaid's Dario Mastroianni used some to accent the upper part of the fork legs.

Artika, a winter-Scrambler

Dario Lopez Studio delivers Artika, a reinterpretation of the old Pantah Ice machines from the '70s. Paying tribute to the ice racers of yore, the Artika mimics the color scheme of the old bikes, with fluorescent yellow and three tones of blue accenting in a very racey way.

Spiked Pirelli knobbies replaced the stock tires, adding the much-needed traction on ice and making the Artika a bike one could really take out for a spin on a frozen lake. Based on the Icon version of the Scrambler, Dario Lopez Studio's custom bike retains the shiny aluminium accents of the Ducati engine.

A tall silencer introduces classic Scrambler looks, with the joint collector running horizontally towards the rear section of the exhaust tract. Obviously, the headlight is gone, replaced by a rectangular number plate.

The three new bikes can serve as inspiration for riders who want to personalize their Scramblers, adding even more to the rewards in the Land of Joy.
