At the World Ducati Week in July, a meeting for Ducati fans at the Marco Simoncelli Misano World Circuit, the biennial competition Custom Rumble will reach its end in a great fashion, but until the final winner is chosen we already have four finalists that will battle for the win.
The second edition of the Custom Rumble started in the end of 2017, with the contestants starting their work on the bikes in September and online voting in October, and since then there were 132 entries for this years’ edition, with customizers working on their Ducati Scramblers to create diversified customized Scramblers.
Divided into four different categories, “Best Dealer” (reserved for all official Ducati dealers), “Best Private Customizer” (for all specialised custom workshops), “Best Customer” (for Ducati Scrambler customers) and “Rookie Rumble” (for under-35 enthusiasts who have customized a Scrambler Sixty2), participants received votes directly on scramblerducati.com. In all, no less than 200,000 votes were cast.
The creations showed how creative customizers can be, with a vast array of styles: from Café Racer to Bobber, and even an electric version (the D-EV Project) built by a Thai participant.
So, who are the four finalists of the Custom Rumble by Ducati Scrambler?
The “ESG Rumble 400” by Ducati Poland comes from the Best Dealer category, “The Batass” built by Piotr also from Poland entered and won the Best Private Customizer category, and then there’s two entries from Thailand, the “Black Ant” imagined and fabricated by Sumalpan that won the Best Customer category, and the last of the four finalists is the “Aree” designed by Tanapol which competed in the Rookie Rumble category.
At the World Ducati Week from 20 to 22 July in Misano, the ultimate winner will be found with the help of the votes from a jury of experts – designers, motorcyclists and customizers
The winner of the second Custom Rumble by Ducati Scrambler will win a trip to California and the honor to say that he has the most beautiful Scrambler in the World.
