In addition to showcasing their draXter concept, Ducati displayed three new Scrambler proposals at the Verona Bike Show – the Peace Sixty2, Revolution and Artika. Each bike has been crafted by Italian custom builders and is Ducati’s attempt to show the customization possibilities for their smash hit Scrambler.
The Peace Sixty2 is the second major Scrambler from Verona-based builder, Mr Martini (the first being his Cafe Racer Scrambler). It’s probably the most distinct of the three on display thanks to its 1960’s inspired fairing with plexiglass nose and handcrafted leather seat.
The Artika (because it’s pictured in the cold, get it?) is supposedly a throwback to the Ducati Pantah Ice project of the late 70’s. That bike was involved in a race, the Ice Trophy, that only the Pantah could enter. Ironically, the Peace Sixty2 actually resembles the Pantah more closely than the Artika which if we’re being frank, looks like a standard Scrambler with chunkier tires.
Lastly is the Revolution – a Scrambler based on the upcoming smaller capacity Sixty2 and has been modified to look (and ride) more like a bobber. The Revolution gets a leather rider-only seat as well as new fork yokes and a new plate holder. As the style requires, the front fender is eliminated and the rear seat gets chopped down to size – it’s a style that really suits the compact Scrambler.
