Gallery: Ducati XDiavel and Scrambler Concepts

At this past weekend's Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Italy, Ducati showed concept bikes based on its XDiavel and Scrambler models. The draXter, based on the new XDiavel cruiser model, was developed by the Ducati Design Center's Advanced Design area; the three Scrambler models were each designed by Italian customizers. Scroll through the gallery below to see images and details of each bike.

The number 90 on the draXter pays homage to Ducati's 90th anniversary, being celebrated this year.

The draXter's suspension and brakes are taken directly from the Panigale Superbike.

Following the Ducati Café Racer Scrambler, the imaginative Verona-based builder Mr. Martini has now come up with his second Scrambler-based creation. This is the Peace Sixty2. Based on the new Sixty2, it has an even “racier” feel than the previous special designed by this builder, largely thanks to its 1960s-style fairing.

The plexiglass nose fairing designed by Mr. Martini for this bike (giving prominence to the original headlight), the handlebars, the single-seater tailpiece, the Termignoni exhaust and hand-crafted leather seat all make the Peace Sixty2 something truly unique. Further contributions to its originality also come from a series of details and graphic elements, such as the symbols that recall the concept of peace.

With the Peace Sixty2 Mr. Martini also aims to express a state of mind. Indeed, the idea behind this bike took shape during the recent tragic events in Paris, a city extremely dear to Mr. Martini, where he has showcased his creations at numerous events and exhibitions.

Revolution is a Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 that has undergone the full bobber style treatment. This bike is characterised by several elements, all hand-crafted by Officine Mermaid, the same team that previously came up with the Ducati Scrambler Scratch.

Specially for the Revolution, this Milan-based builder has come up with a leather rider-only seat as well as new fork yokes and a new plate holder. Dedicated on-tank pin striping nicely offsets the black colour scheme so typical of bobber bikes. The 17’’ front and rear wheels emphasise the bike's custom character.

Dario Mastroianni, founder and customizer of Officine Mermaid, named the bike Revolution to highlight just how sweeping the changes to it have been. Low-slung and wicked-looking like any self-respecting bobber, the Ducati Scrambler Revolution is as essential as can be, stripped of everything that's not strictly necessary.

The Dario Lopez Studio has put its signature to the Ducati Scrambler Artika, a modern take on the Ducati Pantah Ice project of the late 70s, one of the iconic bikes displayed at the Ducati Museum in Borgo Panigale. The latter used to take part in the Ice Trophy, a competition reserved for Ducati Pantah bikes alone.

The Ducati Scrambler Artika retains the colour scheme of its yesteryear counterpart: sporting a fluorescent yellow, its vintage graphics offer intriguing nuances of blue. The mechanics, based on the Icon version, take centre-stage thanks to clever old-style highlighting of the essence and shine of the aluminium

Chunky, Pirelli tyres with ice studs make the Ducati Scrambler Artika a bike with a personality as extreme as it is unique.
