Hot swap: A plug ‘n’ play Ducati Scrambler kit

Bad Winners wowed us last year with a sharp, purpose-built flat tracker based on the Ducati Scrambler. Now the Parisian shop’s raised the bar with a fresh take on the concept—a bolt-on kit for the Scrambler that looks just as rad, but doesn’t require major surgery.

“We agree now that stock is the new custom, right?” jokes Bad Winners’ front man, Walid Ben Lamine. “Clients coming into the workshop want ‘plug and play’ kits that are easy to reverse. Well, most of them… so that’s what we’re working on lately.”

The previous flat track build was made to race, but this kit leaves the Scrambler fully usable for day-to-day street riding. And it truly is plug and play; you can install it in an afternoon, without having to cut or weld anything. (It even uses the OEM key-operated seat latch.)

The centerpiece of the Scrambler ‘MotoKit’ is its all-new bodywork. There’s a fuel cell that holds eight liters, a cover that goes over it, and a new tail section with a leather seat. There’s also a set of four side covers; two to fill the space below the tank, and two number board-style covers below the seat.

Bad Winners relied on 3D modeling software, and their in-house 3D printer, to develop the kit. Walid and his team designed all the parts digitally, then printed out molds to shape the final fiberglass and carbon fiber pieces on.

The process for building the fuel cell was slightly different. Walid created a 3D design, then split the pieces digitally, laser-cut them from 3 mm aluminum and welded everything up. The whole setup mounts to existing points on the frame, and makes use of the Ducati’s stock fuel pump.

Rather than outsource manufacturing and sit with a whole lot of stock waiting to be sold, all production is done in-house. So each set is built to order, with a four to six week lead-time.

There’s more to the package than just the body kit though. Walid’s selected a set of tasteful bolt-ons to enhance the Scrambler even more—like a snaking two-into-one stainless steel exhaust system from SC Project. There’s a set of K&N filters in the box too, and a Lithium-ion battery from Antigravity.

The exhaust muffler hangs off a bracket that accompanies a rearset setup from Ducabike. There’s a really handy mod up front too; adjustable risers from Gilles Tooling that let you move your bars closer or further from you.

The Bad Winners kit keeps the Scrambler’s speedo and headlight (let’s face it, they work and look good enough), but adds a set of tiny Motogadget turn signals. The front LEDs mount on a custom-machined bracket, and the rear ones attach to an aluminum license plate holder.

All the parts come ready painted or powder-coated, with a choice of white and yellow or black and carbon for the tank cover. You also get all the hardware you need, a manual, and an instructional video.

Pricing for the kit starts at €4,490 (around $4,950) for the above, but there are upgrades available if you’re feeling reckless. Bad Winners have a full Öhlins suspension setup in the catalog, along with a 17” front wheel swap (the stock Scrambler has an 18” hoop up front) and a neater front fender.

The bikes pictured here are wearing the front wheel and fender option, along with sticky Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tires. With flat track style in mind you’d expect to see a 19” wheel kit on offer, but Walid’s clear on the motorcycle kit’s intended usage.

“It keeps the original feel of the racing flat tracker, but with everyday use in mind,” he explains. “This kit makes the Scrambler a perfect street weapon!”

Bad Winners’ MotoKit is a good look for the Ducati Scrambler, but we also love how well sorted it is. And if you’ve got a Scrambler 1100 in the garage, Walid’s working on a similar kit for that too.

We’re hard-pressed to pick our favorite color though: stealthy black, or vivid yellow. How about you?
