Italia Independent Made The Scrambler Special Edition Ducati Should Have Made

Ducati felt like they launched something for everyone when they released the Scrambler Ducati line last year. Suprisingly, the one thing they missed was a low-key cafe option. Luckily, Italian fashion brand Italia Independent came to the rescue.


The bike, which was released at the Art Basel show in Miami this last week, is a collaboration that began three years ago, which may be why Ducati failed to give us something with lower bars in their original offerings.

The frame and wheels have been given a lovely dark bronze treatment, and the engine blacked out with brushed aluminum cylinder fins. The tank and fenders are matte black, as is the Termignoni exhaust.

The flat bar and underslung mirrors look great here, and are a welcome change compared to the ape hangers the stock bike gets. Naturally, special badges, frame I.D. card, and seat tag are included. You can also buy a pair of Italia Independent sunglasses designed to match the bike, but that’s it.


Only 1,077 units are being made and no price has been announced, so you better get on it if you want to get one. Or just save this to your Pinterest board and figure out how to do it yourself.

An earlier version of this story indicated the Italia Independent sunglasses came with the motorcycle. They do not. The text has been corrected.
