Ducati Crowns A Winner For Its 3rd Annual Custom Scrambler Contest

May 27, 2020

Not long after Ducati rolled out its Scrambler lineup in 2015, the Italian marque attempted to demonstrate the retro-themed L-twin’s modularity and potential for customization via a bespoke bike building competition known as the Thud Rumble Contest. After an extended hiatus, Scrambler Ducati has now revived the Thud Rumble Contest in its third iteration for 2020, and shortly on the heels of revealing the finalists, Ducati has now declared a winner, crowning Marco Graziani of Italian custom moto outfit, CC Racing Garage’s “Bully” with first place.

The Roman shop edged out the top prize by a matter of only 87 votes, thanks to CC’s transformation of the modern-retro into a contemporary cafe racer, complete with a bespoke burnt titanium lobster-cut exhaust, waspish tail section, and upgraded running gear. Runner ups included an off-road build from Nguyen Ximong in Vietnam, a cafe-meets-tracker build with a single-piece tank and tail section, and a particularly clean brat bike build. Judged by a panel that included Ducati Corse WSBK and MotoGP stars, Chaz Davies and Andrea Dovizioso, the contest’s final results were streamed live on Facebook in a special ceremony.
