Ducati shows two Scrambler concepts at Bike Shed MotoShow

At the 2024 London Bike Shed MotoShow, Ducati presented bold and innovative concepts based on the second generation Scrambler. The two proposals from the Centro Stile Ducati show how fundamental the world of customization, characterized by creativity and free expression, is for the post-heritage Ducati world.

The CR24I concept is a motorcycle in the purest Café Racer style, a natural evolution of the Scrambler of the same name from 2017. The line is inspired by the motorcycles that made the legend of the British halls in the 1960s, where enthusiasts challenged each other to driving around the block in time with a record playing on the jukebox.

The project, created entirely within the Centro Stile Ducati, underlines the versatility of the mechanical basis of the Ducati Scrambler, which in this interpretation is characterized by the 17″ front rim with road tires and by the sporty clip-on handlebar with bar end mirrors.

The tank-mounted fairing recalls icons of Ducati history such as the Pantah and the 750 SS, reinterpreted to achieve that contemporary and post-heritage look that has always been an asset of the Ducati Scrambler brand.

The saddle turns into a single-seater thanks to the removable cover over the part reserved for the passenger, reminiscent of the classic ‘panettone’ saddles of sports motorcycles of the 70s. The color scheme completes a concept that appeals to enthusiasts who most are connected to the iconography of the British rockers of the 60s.

The RR24I references the aesthetic canons of post-apocalyptic sagas from films and TV series. Minimalist and functional in every detail, this Ducati Scrambler contrasts with the sleek and harmonious lines of the CR24I concept.

The concept immediately takes the enthusiast back to the original size of the motorcycle: two wheels, a tank, an engine and a handlebar. Nothing superfluous to the purest emotions of riding, to fully experience that feeling of freedom that has always been fundamental in the Ducati Scrambler concept.

All aluminum parts have been highlighted, the technical and functional details have been exposed to give authenticity to a concept that focuses entirely on materials that are distinctive to the eye and the sense of touch. The tank has been stripped of its cover and replaced by a frame on which a tank bag can be attached.

The part of the seat reserved for the passenger is removable to create space for a luggage rack, another detail that underlines the adventurous and essential spirit of the concept.

Moto Show in London
Both concepts were shown to the public at the London Bike Shed MotoShow, which took place from 24 to 26 May. The Bike Shed MotoShow was founded in 2013 as a celebration of special culture and within ten years has become one of the most important events on the international stage.
