Top Shelf: Italia Independent x Ducati Scrambler


Changing the pace right quick, to take you and yours on the road. My boy SG is really into bikes, and when we get the content together for posts on here, he's always looking for a way to push bikes more. That’s been his thing forever. I’m more of a car guy. Probably because I’m scared to death of killing myself riding a bike, lol. But I’ve always appreciated the engineering that goes into constructing a vehicle, and that’s the part that really brings it home for me. So let’s get into one that caught our attention this week.

Continuing to push into lifestyle, Ducati, maker of some of the world’s best motorcycles has unveiled a new collaboration with Italian lifestyle, sunglasses and apparel brand Italia Independent. Founded by Lapo Elkann, the Italian entrepreneur and grandson of former Fiat Automobiles CEO and controlling shareholder Gianni Agnelli, you can imagine that there is a lot of racing expertise that has gone into this unique project. 

First presented during Art Basel Miami this year, a limited edition Ducati Scrambler with Italia Independent badging and other unique details debuted alongside a new collection of sunglasses, marking the start of a three-year partnership between the two brands. Each one of the Italia Independent Scramblers features a black Termignoni exhaust, custom tapered handlebars, café nose fairing, bar-mount aluminum rear-view mirrors, a blacked-out engine and shortened mudguard. 

Limited to only 1,077 pieces, the motorcycle has a steampunk look, with the design being dominated by black and night copper. With the price set at $12,777, good luck getting your hands on one of these for next summer.

Get yours..
