Ducati unveiled three new variants of the Scrambler during the Verona Motor Bike Expo in Italy held late last month.
The Ducati Scrambler Peace Sixty2, the Revolution and the Artika are three new Ducati Scrambler proposals that carry the signatures of Italian designers and customizers.
Following the Ducati Café Racer Scrambler, the imaginative Verona-based builder Mr. Martini has come up with his second Scrambler-based creation. This is the Peace Sixty2. Based on the new Sixty2, it has an even “racier” feel than the previous special designed by this builder, largely thanks to its 1960s-style fairing. The plexiglass nose fairing designed by Mr. Martini for this bike (giving promi-nence to the original headlight), the handlebars, the single-seater tailpiece, the Termignoni exhaust and hand-crafted leather seat all make the Peace Sixty2 something truly unique. Further contribu-tions to its originality also come from a series of details and graphic elements, such as the symbols that recall the concept of peace.
With the Peace Sixty2, Mr. Martini also aims to express a state of mind. Indeed, the idea behind this bike took shape during the recent tragic events in Paris, a city extremely dear to Mr. Martini, where he has showcased his creations at numerous events and exhibitions.
The Revolution is a Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 that has undergone the full bobber style treatment. This bike is characterized by several elements, all hand-crafted by Officine Mermaid, the same team that previously came up with the Ducati Scrambler Scratch. Especially for the Revolution, this Milan-based builder has come up with a leather rider-only seat as well as new fork yokes and a new plate holder. Dedicated on-tank pin striping nicely offsets the black colour scheme so typical of bobber bikes. The 17-inch front and rear wheels emphasize the bike’s custom character. Dario Mastroianni, founder and customizer of Officine Mermaid, named the bike Revolution to highlight just how sweeping the changes to it have been. Low-slung and wicked-looking like any self-respecting bobber, the Ducati Scrambler Revolution is as essential as can be, stripped of everything that’s not strictly necessary.
Lastly, the Dario Lopez Studio has put its signature to the Ducati Scrambler Artika, a modern take on the Ducati Pantah Ice project of the late 1970s, one of the iconic bikes displayed at the Ducati Muse-um in Borgo Panigale. The latter used to take part in the Ice Trophy, a competition reserved for Ducati Pantah bikes alone. The Ducati Scrambler Artika retains the color scheme of its yesteryear counter-part: sporting a fluorescent yellow, its vintage graphics offer intriguing nuances of blue. The mechan-ics, based on the Icon version, take center-stage thanks to clever old-style highlighting of the es-sence and shine of the aluminum. Chunky, Pirelli tires with ice studs make the Ducati Scrambler Arti-ka a bike with a personality as extreme as it is unique.
