Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A used Verona Motor Bike Show (Ducati at Verona Bike Show) as a window for everyone to preview their second instalment of Scrambler-based specials, the Peace Sixty2, Revolution and Artika; all fashioned by Mr. Martini. So here’s a brief about Ducati at Verona Bike Show.
At the healthy dawn of this second automotive century, it is apparent that the competitive realm of automotive industry is shifting away from conventional designs to strategies that give more aftermarket scope for goods. We say why not, considering the current plethora of all the customizers, their heyday across the globe and the recent and ever increasing wave of custom bikes that is blowing the first stage competition out, the old paradigm of stock bikes mollifying the end users is rare. But, what if a bike exits an assembly line with that élan, yet with a trace of originality and no opportunity to customize, at least for a few years? Well it does, at least in the case of these triplets; the Peace Sixty2, Revolution and Artika.
1. Ducati Peace Sixty2
First in Ducati at Verona Bike Show is the lewder Peace Sixty2 that sports a 1960s styled fairing comes with a Termignoni exhaust, handcrafted leather seats and a Plexiglass nose fairing which adds up to its matchless design. Apart from the handle bar and the single-seat tailpiece, the overall bike is largely conceptualised by the idea of peace by Mr. Martini as absorption of the recent ill-fated events at Paris. The reason being, this place gave Mr. Martini a lot of opportunities to showcase his creations; hence, the expression.
2. Ducati Revolution
The Revolution which is a Bobber is handcrafted by Officine Mermaid. With its low-slung 17’’ rear and front and new fork yokes, it seems that this Ducati Scrambler Custom Revolution is quite ready to manoeuvre when it comes to handling. However, the Bobber’s attitude is been taken care by the leather rider-only seat and the gold pin-striping on the tank.
3. Ducati Artika
Last but not the least, it’s the Ducati Scrambler Customs- Artika; a 70s bike with a dash of modernity. This icy-cool bike is spur of those 70s when Ducati Pantah Project was running, which is now displayed in the Ducati Museum in Borgo Panigale. We call it icy-cool bike because it wears Pirelli rubber with Ice studs to re-introduce itself to ice; the same way Ducati has done with us with these troikas.
