Looks good and functional too. Seems Evotech has the rectifier and oil cooler guards available as well. Thanks for the picture and info.

Had an exhaust-related issue with the OEM plate at my UE and switched to the evotech plate. Design is a more rigid construction:

bogus bash plate

I can tell you that the Ducati bash plate is useless and mainly for looks. No good for off-roading and also lessens your ground clearance in turns. It also makes checking the oil filter which had a habit of coming loose a chore.

Will this work with the bottom pan Ducati offers ???

My problem is, I don't like the look of the Evotech bash plate. I'd like to see something that continues on the theme of Ducati's bash plate…either a second plate that matches the first, but sits higher up…or a whole new plate that looks like the original but forms up the front. Not just over the head, but partially around the head pipe...

I'm curious what issue you had with the exhaust. I bought the Ducati skid plate about 8 months ago, but I never got around to putting it on. I was going to put it on soon since it's too cold ride!

ok, fine: if you follow the link to my YT video you will see at 3min 38sec that the bashplate does not go well with the QD exhaust from an esthetical point of view...

Try this link perhaps. The video should start directly there:

Apart from that imho the original bashplate is better than nothing at all.

Judging by the way my Remus pipe is routed using factory headers, I don't think I will have any issues...

Yes. IMO the Evotech provides more protection. But as previously mentioned, the Scrambler is not a good bike to test how well bash plates function. In the end, all bash plates for the scrambler boil down to form over function. Choose which suits your taste and preference.
