one word… hot! m.

eccles loved ducati’s signature frame, and celebrated it with a custom petrol tank. it echoes the lines and angles of the frame resulting in a tapered shape which became the overall direction for the build – the seat, and headlight are all part of one single tapered form. the slim design also suggested a more pared-down flattrack inspired style which eccles felt was compatible with the ‘scrambler’s’ DNA. from that point on, the build was geared towards stripping and removing all extraneous details and components, including numerous plastic panels. the result was a bike that, at 148 kgs, is 39 kilograms lighter than the original.

visually, the custom ‘scrambler’ design consists of three core elements: engine, frame and body. the engine and other mechanical parts have been stripped to bare metal and vapor blasted to celebrate their raw mechanical nature. the frame was painted in ‘rosso corsa’, a neon orange color that ducati uses for their race bikes. the bodywork was painted in a solid grey to match the slim motocross influenced vinyl seat.
