We’ve seen some pretty mental interpretations of the Ducati Scrambler, but this has to be one of the maddest. You can see it at The Bike Shed show in London this weekend.
Built in conjunction with Ducati and Pirelli tyres by Vibrazioni Art Design, the Scrambler will make its UK debut at The Bike Shed show in London this weekend (May 23/24). It’s called the SC-Rumble.
After its debut the bike will make its way to Wheels and Waves in Biarritz on June 11 to 14. You can follow its progress online on Ducati's Scrambler Facebook page.
Vibrazioni took the Ducati Scrambler and raided Ducati’s parts bin, using a longer wheelbase and Ducati Streetfighter handlebars. It also features solid wheels and a tank that shows Scrambler on one side and the tread of a tyre on the other side of the tank.
Vibrazioni are an interior design specialist company who operate using recycled metal sheet recycled from industrial bins of chemical, petrochemical and food companies, then hand worked and inspired by old school craftsmanship.
That’s why the monocoque seat unit is made up of industrial bins hand hammered and shaped to maintain the original shape of the chassis.
Ducati say: “The name of this special edition maintains the association with Scrambler, and it emphasises a warlike personality and a partiality for dirt roads.”
We reckon they’d been smoking something not available in the shops, just our opinion.
The top fairing is made from hand shaped aluminium like the side panels, and houses the headlight made from billet aluminium, with a smoked lens that has a circular LED light guide inspired by the factory Ducati Scrambler headlight. The high exhaust is based on the dedicated Termignoni aftermarket model with a hand-crafted silencer. You can see some video of the SC-Rumble here.
Standard Pirelli MT 60 RS tyres are used, as per the standard bike.
See it at the Bike Shed Show London at Tobacco Dock this weekend. (May 23-24).
