This Custom Ducati Scrambler Pays Homage To The Prestigious Isle Of Man TT
What better way to celebrate the return of the Isle Of Man TT than by creating a staggering custom bike, right?by Punya Sharma, on
With Isle Of Man TT once again in full swing after a Covid-struck hiatus, Austria-based Reier Motors wanted to do something special on the occasion. So the bikemaker took matters into its own hands and prepared an epic custom Ducati Scrambler that pays homage to Ducati’s four-time Isle Of Man-winning race bike, the TT2. Now that you know the intention, let’s check out the motorcycle.
Custom Ducati Scrambler By Reier Motors
Since the inspiration for the build came from the Ducati TT2, it was certain the Scrambler would need all-new bodywork and that’s exactly the case. Right from the semi-fairings and front fender to the rear tail cover, everything’s handmade in-house by Reier Motors.
The team picked the Scrambler for the job, thanks to the trellis frame and L-twin engine, which was also there on the TT2
The tail section, in particular, looks exactly like the original Ducati TT2 donning a squarish design and extending to the fuel tank. Speaking of the tank, it remains mostly unchanged, only with a dash of matching paint and old-school Ducati logos.
Up top, even though the headlight is stock, the mounting brackets are all new and were fabricated in-house. Meanwhile, an aftermarket screen and a retro oil-cooler (borrowed from an old Monster 900) round off the new fascia.
Design aside, there are a few chassis and engine tweaks here too. Starting with the former, Reier Motors has reworked and lowered the stock front forks of the Scrambler, while the rear end now gets an Ohlins monoshock. Not to mention, you also get a custom triple-clamp with clip-ons and 17-inch alloy wheels donning Bridgestone semi-slicks keeping the race bike flavor intact.
Coming to the latter, the engine remains mostly unchanged, with the only upgrade being the handmade header pipes finishing out of Termignoni exhausts. The routing of the headers does look a tad unorthodox, though, but hey, it adds to the exclusivity of the motorcycle.
For the final touches, the team created a custom electronics tray, repositioned the battery, and hid all the wires neatly, while also wrapping everything in an old-school red and black livery, topped with a red chassis and wheels.
Can You Buy It?
Reier Motors has shed no light on whether this is already someone’s prized possession or up for grabs. What we know, though, is that this is an impressive build and any die-hard Isle Of Man fan would be lucky to have it in his/her garage.
