Since the launch of its Scrambler range, Ducati has been employing various one-off build programs and competitions in an attempt to market the lineup’s conduciveness to customization. One of the first efforts was the Maverick program, which included a commission that saw Ducati call on renowned tattoo artist GRIME (of Skull & Sword fame) to customize a 2017 Scrambler Icon.

Taking time off his multi-year waiting-list tattooing schedule, the Bay Area artist treated the scrambler to bespoke aluminum bodywork based on that of 1980s motocrossers and decked out in an Italian National Soccer Team-themed livery. The suspension’s been upgraded front and back with Andreani fork cartridges and an Ohlins shock, plus there’s a dash and dual-throttle body conversion plucked from a Hypermotard, along with a 996 superbike taillight, and a custom dual-can under-tail Termignoni exhaust. After being displayed at the 2017 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas, the bike initially sold for just under $43,000 at Mecum’s 2018 Las Vegas Auction — where the proceeds went to Shriner’s Hospital for Children, the same outfit that helped GRIME as a kid after he was gravely injured in a fire at the age of 8 — though has now resurfaced on the online auction block through Southern California’s Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
