The Ducati Scrambler is one of our favorite contemporary rides, and one of the most versatile platforms on the market. There is the cafe racer version, the desert sled, and an array of street-oriented models with different styling cues and performance directions.
Coterie West of Los Angeles wanted to create a “modern desert tracker,” based on a 2015 Ducati Scrambler Classic. The result is a far cry from the bike that rolled off the boat. Now she is “Stella the Scrambler.” Given that the aftermarket was still relatively small for this bike, many of the parts were hand-fabricated. Below, we get the full story on the build.
Ducati Scrambler Desert Tracker: In the Builder’s Words
The idea behind “Stella the scrambler” was to execute my version of a modern desert tracker with a twist. With that said, and the market being very small for the Ducati Scrambler Community, I went forth with a plan to fabricate as much as I personally could and purchase the key items I know I would need to finish the bike.
Just to name a few of the key mods:
- Repaint with a custom mix of Grey that we made one off, topped with a mix of Black highlights both Matte finish and Gloss Black with some House of Kolor silver metallic pin stripping
- Custom SCRAM-Tracker front headlight / number plate mod utilizing a Baja Design LED lamp
- Custom side panels
- Custom reshaped and upholstered Scrambler seat slimmed down in height for my riding preference and gel insert for additional comfort.
- ZARD Stainless steel exhaust
- Daytona Nissin Brake master cylinder combo with a CRG sport levers and CRG 3inch bar end folding mirrors
- Rizoma gauge relocation kit with Renthal Fatbar replacement to the factory 7/8 bar
- Rizoma front axle spool
- Driven racing rear axle blocks and slider combo
- Pirelli Scorpion Rally tire combo front and rear
- Racing Brothers steering damper with Daytona fork clamp
