Ducati Scrambler "Essenza" by South Garage
South Garage reinterprets the Ducati Scrambler as a Café Racer, staying true to its DNA and its brand tradition well-known for work done with a "vintage racer" style, expertly employing superior craftsmanship, solar spirit and decidedly Mediterranean creativity.
The name "ESSENZA" (ESSENCE) is derived from the desire to convey a concept that is very dear to the Milanese team: "revolutionising without traumatising" for the purpose of bringing out the intrinsic characteristics of the bike.
In fact, the look develops along the original contours of the Scrambler without invasive work on the frame and chassis. The style is reminiscent of a modern and refined interpretation of "Steam Punk", in which the emphasis on craftsmanship, material selection, tones and finishes mix with conspicuous technical solutions.
The aluminium superstructure is entirely hammered by hand, and the hand-crafted seat is covered with cowhide.
The headlight fairing incorporates a new-generation LED headlight that matches the one on the rear embedded in the reconstructed frame. The handlebars can be adjusted in both height and tilt, and the footpegs can be shifted in 10 different positions, offering maximum modularity in terms of riding position, while the braking system has been improved through the installation of radial brake master cylinders that better feed the standard Brembo calliper.
The engine output has been optimised with a 2-1-2 exhaust system built to specifications by the craftsman Fabrizio Fresco. The chassis has billet anticorodal steering plates and super light aluminium rims.
Casing, rear swinging arm, spring and many other details were completely brushed and polished to emphasise the material aspect and to maximise the authenticity and classical flavour.
The taste and know-how are the same that have always distinguished the brand and that are fully conveyed by this "chic racer" that is as wicked as it is refined and elegant.
South Garage is a laboratory of ideas, a workshop in which customisation projects are carried out based on customer specifications.
Its work reflects a will to dare and to see things from a different perspective, perceiving the bike as an object of status that is an extension of one's self.
"The Exaltation of the Essence", understood as the elimination of the superfluous and emphasis of craftsmanship and material quality, is the mission that wholly reflects the values of the BRAND.
These principles are fully recognised in the production of "one-off" bikes bearing the "SOUTH GARAGE MOTORCYCLES" brand.
