The inaugural Scrambler Maverick motorcycle, designed by renowned tattoo artist GRIME, went to one lucky bidder on Saturday, June 2, as part of MECUM’s Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa. The motorcycle sold for $39,000.

The 100 percent unique motorcycle was customized as part of Ducati North America’s inaugural Maverick program, by prolific celebrity tattoo artist GRIME, known worldwide and with a tattoo waiting list in excess of three years. The proceeds from the auction of GRIME’s custom Scrambler will be given to support the Shriners Hospitals For Children, an organization chosen by GRIME himself.

The motorcycle originated as a Scrambler Ducati Icon – the first model of Ducati’s Scrambler lineup, which is now the company’s most successful model. GRIME’s Scrambler was artistically handcrafted during more than 250 hours of precise fabrication, through the forming of steel and aluminum in order to merge the world of motorcycling with that of tattooing.

The Scrambler Maverick build was supported by GRIME’s local Ducati dealership, Marin Speed Shop. GRIME’s design consists of a custom-fabricated gas tank, tail and headlight, with paint influenced by the Italian Football Federation’s colors. Additional modifications include: fully-adjustable fork cartridges, Öhlins rear shock with remote pre-load and adjustable compression, Custom 2-1-2 Termignoni High-mount exhaust, custom seat, rear taillight from a Ducati 996, dual-throttle body conversion, dashboard and an oil cooler from a Ducati Hypermotard.
