The seat looks terrible, I think it spoils an otherwise good looking bike but it dominates the whole profile, the rest of the bike is fine especially the chromed tank panels

The seat is a Corbin Streetfighter Lady. I ride a lot with my wife and daughters and the stock seat was VERY uncomfortable. I love the comfort and look of the seat...to each his own I always say.

Fitted gel pads to original seat looks the same no rise in height.
FT Bars
Throttle tamer
Bar end mirrors
Rear black rack

To do: front forks poss rear as well
Bought some krauser bags!
And some love handles to keep the missus on the back! Which has a bonus of her staying behind me when cornering rather than looking around or swapping shoulders!! World's worse honest!

It's a Classic!

I do like the colour scheme, something a bit different. The chrome side panels really do set it off !

As others have said, I'm not a fan of the seats. I think Corbin always go OTT. The seat is very thick, making the back look quite heavy but it looks well made and you seem to love it, so all power to you!

Certainly unique and you won't see anyone with the same look. Ducati is selling so many Scramblers, making it your own is going to be important.
I love how you can transform this bike with just a new seat and side panels.

I built my own tail tidy (available for sale!), added Ohlins rear and have front cartridges that aren't in yet, Mustang seat, exhaust, replaced coil cover with my own custom version, Dart screen, Ducati bags with waxed coating, still working on lots of custom bits.

I have added a few mods to my FT. Intake express Power Up Kit, with this unit you remove the orignal airbox and install the new filter and breather kit. The install was clean and all the parts and new brackets are included. Rexxer PUK remap, FM Projects slipon exhaust. Now the bike does power wheelies in first gear and is close to that if you nail it in second too.
I also tried the MBC upgrade filter and the remap for the slipon exhaust, this was an improvement over stock which many will be happy with. After running both setups I am glad I went for the PUK kit and remap, so much fun like a completely different bike in the power department.
I had Sargent two up world seat stitched with a custom cover the way I wanted it, the guys at Sargent were great and I would highly recommend this seat. They had a seat heater option so I added that. Seat is very nice and comfortable, the stock looked great but was the worst seat after about 80 miles, I could not wait for the ride to be over. Now I have about 600 miles on the new seat, when you get off the bike after a ride no pain so nice, another great upgrade I think.
Changed out the grips to a softer pair without the stock waffle pattern, after about 150 miles of spirited riding the stock grips seemed to be very hard. Another great upgrade that I think makes the scrambler easier to love.
I fabricated a new very small rear fender that protrudes out just past the stock rear turn signals, painted it flat black and added the yellow and black Ducati stripes same as on the front fender. The rear fender did get rid of the cutoff look at the rear of the bike, I like it now.
Brake light flasher module just plugged in so that was an easy install too. Just some of the upgrades I have done so far. I can post some pics if anyone is interested in seeing these.
