If you’ve got a Ducati Scrambler and a thing for customized motorcycles, then the Custom Rumble competition is meant for you. With two successful editions, the Custom Rumble event is back with its 3rd edition for which the registration is now open.
Custom Rumble is a two-yearly competition for the best customized Ducati Scrambler. With the aim of providing even more freedom for personal reinterpretations, for this 3rd edition the categories are increased and updated. There are 4 categories dedicated to the Ducati Scrambler 800 and Sixty2 and one specifically for the Ducati Scrambler 1100.
The 5 concepts to take as a starting point for creating the custom motorcycle are:
Rocker: bikes inspired by the culture of the legendary cafe racers which, in the 1960s, started off an authentic revolution in the world of motorcycles.
Cut-down: bikes in bobber style where all elements that are not strictly necessary are eliminated, for a really essential look.
All-Terrain: enduro-style Scramblers, perfect for any terrain and equipped with elements inspired by off-road riding.
Outsider: conceived for those who don’t want the restrictions of a particular category but prefer to give free rein to their creativity.
Bully: the special category dedicated to the Ducati Scrambler 1100, with no restrictions as to the type of bike or style.
If you want to participate, registration is already open and will close on 30th Dec 2019. It’s requested to the participants to get their customized motorcycles ready and upload its pictures to the dedicated section on scramblerducati.com by 30th Jan 2020. Visitors to the website will vote for their favorite motorcycle online by 15th March 2020, and these votes will determine the winning bike.
Participants in the Custom Rumble competition can share images and contents of their work-in-progress on their own Instagram and Facebook profiles with the #customrumble hashtag so as to be shared on the official Scrambler Ducati and Custom Rumble pages.
The 2nd edition of Custom Rumble saw over 132 international participants competing in the Dealer, Customer, Customizer, and Rookie Rumble categories. The winner was announced at the 2018 World Ducati Week. It is being anticipated that the number of participants for this season would be more. The winner of the 3rd edition will be rewarded in May 2020 at a dedicated event with a jury of carefully selected experts.
