Ducati concluded its search for the best custom Scrambler in the world online. The contest, called Custom Rumble was concluded with a live stream on the Scrambler Ducati Facebook page to announced the winners.
Rocker finalist, Ducati Hellas featuring Jigsaw Customs, from Athens, Greece
The contest garnered 74 entries from around the world. Enthusiasts of the world of customization and of the “Land of Joy” had until March 15 to vote for their favorite motorcycle on Scramblerducati.com.
Outsider finalist by Nick Tansley, from Barcelona, Spain
The entries were divided into different categories of customs. Four categories are for the Scrambler 800 and Scrambler Sixty2, and one is specifically for the 1100.
These are Rocker for motorcycles inspired by café racers of the 1960’s; Cut-down for bobber-style motorcycles with minimalist style; All-Terrain for enduro-style scramblers with off-road-inspired components; Outsider which is a relatively open category; and Bully specifically for Scrambler 1100 models without any other restrictions on style.
Almost five thousand users logged on to cast their vote. From these votes, five — one for each category — were chosen for the final, to be presided over by a jury made up of actor Nicholas Hoult; riders Chaz Davies and Andrea Dovizioso; the founder of BikeShed, Dutch Van Someren; and Filippo Barbacane. These judges selected the winning custom-made Scrambler Ducati of the competition. The awards event, live streamed on Ducati’s Scrambler Facebook page, was hosted by model, influencer and Scrambler Ducati, Ambassador Dominika Grnova (pictured in main photo above), who in turn participated in the Custom Rumble in 2018.

The Custom Rumble final happened on the official Scrambler Ducati Facebook page last Monday, May 25. You can still watch it if you’re curious about the proceedings. Warning. Spoilers ahead.

Taking the trophy was the Bully of Marco Graziani by CC Racing Garage, from Rome, Italy. As the winner, Graziani takes the coveted title and will also be rewarded with a Beta workbench with a complete set of tools included to continue his impressive custom work.
It’s certainly interesting to see how customizers around the world approach their craft. Perhaps next year, we’ll see a Pinoy entry in the finals.
