Ducati Scrambler Custom Scene Grows at Verona Bike Expo

Ducati Scrambler Customs – Peace Sixty2, Revolution and Artika

In fall, the EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show is the destination for new-model releases. But come January when most new models are already unveiled for the year, there’s another show that attracts a different type of motorcycle – the Motor Bike Expo in Verona, which is the stage for many Italian custom creations.

This year’s show will be highlighted by three customs built on Ducati’s top-selling model in 2015 – the Scrambler. The three Ducati Scrambler customs that will be shown at Motor Bike Expo at Ducati’s “Land of Joy” attraction will be the Peace Sixty2, the Revolution, and the Artika – all built by Italian builders.

Ducati Peace Sixty2 – Scrambler Custom

Last year, the Verona-based Mr. Martini built a Ducati Cafe Racer Scrambler that attracted many. He has followed this up with the “Peace Sixty2,” based on the new 400cc Scrambler Sixty2. The Peace Sixty2 has a racier feel due to the 1960s-style Plexiglas fairing, which was designed by Martini to give prominence to original headlight.

The Peace Sixty2 is further upgraded with custom handlebars, a single-seater tailpiece, Termignoni exhaust, a hand-crafted seat, and graphics that symbolize peace.

Ducati says “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.”

Built by Officine Mermaid – the same team that designed the Ducati Scrambler Scratch – the Revolution is also based on a Sixty2. But you won’t find any cafe inspiration here; instead, the Revolution receives a full bobber treatment.

The Milan-based builder added a leather single-rider seat, new fork yokes, new plate holder, and pin-striping that clashes with the black color scheme typical of bobber bikes, which are usually built on Harley-Davidson platforms in the states. The Ducati Revolution also arrives with 17” wheels.

Ducati says “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.”

Ducati Scrambler Artika – Scrambler Custom

Back in the late 1970s, there was a competition in Borgo Panigale reserved only for Ducati Pantah bikes – the Ice Trophy. Dario Lopez Studio took inspiration from this scene, and created the Ducati Scrambler Artika – a modern take of on the Ducati Pantah Ice project that currently is on display in at the Ducati Museum in Borgo Panigale.

The Ducati Scrambler Artika’s paint scheme is immediately noticed; it arrives with a florescent yellow paint and vintage graphics in blue. This custom is based on the Scrambler Icon model, and takes “center stage thanks to clever old-style highlighting of the essence and shine of the aluminum.” The Artika is also fitted with studded Pirelli tires for some serious winter riding.
