DUCATI dealers from across the planet have been taking part in a dream contest — customising a new Ducati Scrambler and morphing it into something extra special.
The Scrambler range is a stylistic shout-out to Ducati’s Scrambler from the 1970s. You can order yours in one of half a dozen different iterations, from a slightly anaemic 41hp, 399cc model dubbed the Sixty2 through to a more entertaining 75hp, 803cc model called the Full Throttle.
(Bike Shed Times contributor The Postman is not a great fan of the modern-day Scrambler, but worships Ducati’s original scrambler — the 1971 Ducati 450 R/T. Check out his short drool here .)
Unconvincing or not, the modern Scrambler is obviously a great base from which to build a custom. At the time of writing, the global contest was down to five finalists, one of them an Aussie. The winner will be named at World Ducati Week (bet you didn’t know there was a world Ducati Week …) in Italy in July.
Here are the other four.
