This Custom Ducati Scrambler Moto Was Built For Hardcore Desert Racing

A well-known and highly-respected name in flat track and off-road racing circles, Paul Hartman runs a small operation transforming stock production bikes into bonafide competition-grade sleds. Built for Jordan Graham to campaign in the National Hare & Hound series, Hartman’s newest project sees Ducati’s Scrambler Desert Sled given the full race-spec treatment.

The 803cc L-Twin was stripped down and built back up as a rolling chassis with top-of-the-line Race Tech-tuned suspension backed by a GPR V4 steering stabilizer, and Excel wheels wrapped in Pirelli off-road moto tires. Other than the tail section — which is now capped off with a bespoke race saddle— the entirety of the Duck’s bodywork was binned in favor of custom front and side number boards, and an eight-liter carbon fiber tank from Bad Winners’ bolt-on kit. Other highlights on the build include the relocation of the stock instrumentation, K&N filtration paired with a hand-made Italian exhaust from QD, and a custom race livery. To see more of the project or any of the other stellar work from Hartman, you can check out the race builder’s Instagram page linked below.
