The model that won was part of the Bully category, a section of the entries that was dedicated to the Scrambler Ducati 110. There were no restrictions on the the of bike or style that designers had to create for their entry.

It retails starting at $15,095 and includes Öhlins forks and suspensions, a 1,079 cc air-cooled L-twin engine, traction control, three ride modes (Active, Journey, City), and machine-finished aluminum belt covers. The power plant delivers 86 horsepower and 65 pound-feet of torque.
When new, the bike rode on 10-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels. Up front were two semi-floating disc brakes matched with Brembo calipers. Out back is a disc brake and one-piston floating caliper.
Originally the model had a black seat with yellow stitching, black side panels with yellow underpanels, and a dual-element LCD instrument panel.
He customized the color, graphics, seat, and exhaust. He kept the headlight, rear, and tank similar to the original because he saw them as key elements of traditional Scrambler design.
During the qualification phase, which included nearly 5,000 users of the Ducati Scrambler community that voted at scramblerducati.com, the Scrambler 110 FT received the highest number of votes. It would take the crown after receiving the best score from the judges.
As the winner, Graziani received a Beta workbench including the complete tool kit.
