The Ducati Scrambler is the most beautiful bike of the 2014
EICMA show. The EICMA show was held from November 4 to 9, 2014 in Milan, Italy. The
decision on the Scrambler was made by 43pc of more than 10,000 fans who took
part in the competition organised every year by Italian magazine
“Motociclismo”. The result came from a survey among visitors with a form to be
filled out either directly at the show or on its web site. The Ducati Scrambler
was the most popular choice, both at the show and online, and has won with
almost three times the votes of the second place bike which took 15pc.
The prize for “Most Beautiful Bike of Show” was the final
act after an intense week of exhibitions and events that saw an increase in
visitors of approximately 25pc compared to 2013, a clear indication of recovery
for an important, leading sector such as motorcycles, which is particularly
suffering during the current economic crisis, said a press release.
During the Milan show, the Ducati Scrambler stand was
visited by tens of thousands of fans who were able to experience first-hand the
joyful and laid-back atmosphere, characterised by the now legendary yellow
containers and green lawn, alive with bikes, music and fun. The Ducati
Scrambler aims to transmit the joy of bike riding to every generation of biker,
with a range for all ages customers, leaving room for creativity and personal
freedom of expression.
