If anyone’s ever wondered what the Ducati Scrambler would look like naked, wonder no more because Untitled Motorcycles San Francisco took the liberty of stripping the Scrambler’s body down to the basics to reveal its inner workings. As part of a competition, the Ducati Scrambler was stripped into what you see now, the UMC-038 Marin Ducati Scrambler Icon.
Just to give you an idea of how much of the body was removed, UMC-SF’s owner Hugo Eccles managed to reduce the bike’s weight by 85 pounds, from a dry weight of 375 pounds to 325 pounds. He removed what he considered to be unnecessary parts; plastic panels, the OEM exhaust, headlight, etc. Even the mechanical parts were stripped of color to its bare metal state!
The final product only contains the 3 most necessary elements of a motorcycle to keep it running: the engine, a trellis frame and body. To match the angles of the frame the gas tank and seat was custom designed so that all three pieces will fit into one outline. With the reduced frame comes a smaller set of 17-inch wheels and a vertical LED light bar.
The UMC-038 Marin Ducati Scrambler Icon is actually road legal. Interested?
