Hi, I recently bought a red Icon. One of the selling points was the promoted customization of the bike. When you read literature from ducati it always includes the notes about the variety of part options.

My surfing the web however reveals a different story. They have a few seats, the nicely patterned ones only available in brown. The tank plates I expected to find in a myriad of colors and patterns, are no where to be found. etc.

I really expected to have a lot of options and accessories to choose from.

Would you all know if the assortment is coming? or is it what it is?

Googling the bike gives you no end of custom setups, but all of these awesome looking bikes are custom one off examples and the parts used are not available to the general public.

What is everyone doing? painting the plates yourselves, finding solutions from other bike brands and adapting them for the scrambler?

Regardless, happy to be here. Im now up to 15 miles!

Welcome! I am in Hunterdon County, not exactly local to the Jersey shore but in the state. No riding this week, that's for sure, I was hydroplaning on the way to work this morning in my car!

I have built my own saddlebag mounts out of steel (cutting, bending and welding) and they were cheap and look great. I also made my own number plates (for the sides under the tank), flyscreen and tail tidy. As far as buying aftermarket parts, I have the Mustang seat and rear bobbin spindles. I made my own parts just to save money and get exactly what I wanted, but I feel that there are a lot of different parts available for the Scrambler, if you spend some time looking. I want to paint my tank plates next, still need to decide what to do with them.

I suppose I was expecting a much larger catalog. I came across a few additional seats. I want to find a thiner, cafe racer style seat in Black leather with a nice stitch pattern for starters...

Huntington is nice, but for sure no riding this week. Though I did go out last night for a bit, we had a break in the weather! Im up to 12 miles. haha.

I might end up painting or even plati dipping my tank plates myself, though Id much rather buy a set of white ones.

A lot of bike customisation is about doing it yourself. You'll find most mods people have done on this forum have an element of DIY.

Your dealer should have a few options for things like the side panels and seat. Off the top of my head, there should be at least 6 different seats available as each model uses a different one and there is the lower 'comfort' seat.
the list on the Ducati wesite is fairly long: Ducati Scrambler

Stuff like grips, mirrors and turn signals are pretty standard and lots of 3rd party companies have dozens to choose from. Ducati does sell their own as well.
Check out a site like Revzilla, they list lots of 3rd party stuff that will fit the Scrambler.

Any photos of the bike?

I plasti dipped my side panel black, but I wouldn't recommend it. After a few weeks it wore off where my legs rub the tank. I'll be getting them powder coated soon.
