Hi all,

Well very excited to say this arrived in my garage today... have been watching it since Ducati announced they were getting Customs created for the Scrambler launch.



Created by Holographic Hammer, its designer/creator Sylvain Berneron and his brother Florent for me at least, created an amazing machine here, and it fell into that category of "must have this in my life!"

Its one hell of a spec:

Showa forks
Rotobox Carbon Rims
Beringer 4D Front brakes (thats 8 pads on the disks, pull the lever "gently")
Werkes Slip On
Rizoma goodness sprinkled all over it...
And that lovely Cognito Rear loop with integrated LED lights...

and they managed to drop the weight of the bike to just 147kgs!!! Its so beautifully finished...

Sylvain himself dropped it over himself today, and what an awesome guy he is as well, could have talked to him for days, let alone the hours we actually had (the Eurotunnel problem today was not helpful to his journey)

Super excited to have secured it and looking forward to some nice days to get it out on the road.. smile

Stunning! Have you got any shots of yours (i.e. not press shots)?

Some close ups of the wheels, the (what I assume is) timing chain and seat would be appreciated. Looks like there's a lot of detail there.

i like the look,the front /back symetry of the frame.
looks like it needs more exhaust to stop people thinking youre a fag on a harley.
i dont know why but i hate those wheels
my guess is its going to be great fun smile

where do the rear lights and number plate go?
do they spoil the look or not?


in short we need more pictures!

That's proper st the bed pretty! Lucky man.

Dare I ask, is it going to be a garage queen or are you planning on using it a reasonable amount?

ETA: Your "garage" has nicer flooring than my lounge frown

As the others have said, very nice bike, but there's something about the wheels that doesn't work for me. Might grow on me in time though, maybe it's just that they're somewhat unconventional, which is a good thing I guess....

unconventional is what they were going for. the wheels will be a cause for consternation for some, but in the flesh it actually works... but bear in mind this was a cafe racer weight exercise... with tech... check out Sylvain's S383 project... he is thinking way ahead of the curve... it is stupidly fast! i mean Diavel fast with half the BHP... it actually shocked me earlier... smile

Ah, your lucky bugger. Love Sylvain's work and got to have a good gleg at it and a chat down at Wheels and Waves back in June.

Along with Fred Krugger's X Scrambler it's my favourite rendition so far. Ride the snot out of it and enjoy.

Thanks all, feel very lucky I have to say... some more detail shots for those that requested... (although my poor photography is nowhere near as good as the pro shots)

Nicely done, this one will stand out.

There's also a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R Scrambler, right?
