It's probably going to sell for $19,999 because it says Ducati.

Says wet clutch on their website.

BTW I don't mean to come off as a fanboy, I just think it's a cool bike that I hope hipsters don't ruin for everyone else.

That video was the biggest load of crap I've ever seen. Typical Ducati.

It might be a wet clutch but that vid looked like a classic ducati dry clutch out to the open.

my thoughts exactly...

hmm.. let's check this bike out...wait what's this... nnnooooo the bike isn't evene released and it's being ruined by hipsters!

I'm just curious if this thing is actually worth a shit for scrambling. it's got almost an inch more suspension travel then our niners. doesn't look super adaptable for luggage though. i know the alum. tank inserts are probably mostly cosmetic, and can't be that strong.. but is the idea if you drop it you just replace the insert instead of banging up your tank?

I like the look as well as the concept: a fun bike for the sake of being fun. However, being a Duc and all, I'd be worried about it's reliability in doing what its 'intended' for, and like everybody else I think it's still overpriced.

Talking I'm loving my one

Hi guys

I've not posted for some time, but decided to look in.

I got my Scrambler in mid-March and I've done about 1200 miles now.

I'm absolutely loving it. It is so much lighter, lower and easier to manage than the Yam FZ1 it replaced, and that makes for more fun (in my opinion anyway), even though it only has 50% of the bhp of the FZ1.

It does have a wet multiplate clutch (cable operated) by the way. It isn't really intended for serious off-road use - it's just an easy-going do-it-all bike that has a little mild off-road ability (gravel tracks, etc).

This is the day I picked it up:


It has been named Daffy, for "Duc(k)" and the colour:

The Bonneville could lose some weight, and get a more refined suspension.

the Ducati is going to be a big seller!

Actually I only had the newest bike in our garage for nine days. When I got the Scrambler Andy (my other half) had an almost new Triumph Sprint GT. He hadn't been getting on with it, but didn't want to trade for anything significantly less powerful while I had the FZ1. A few days after I got the Scrambler he sat on a T100 Black at the Triumph dealer and decided that he wanted one. He got a cracking trade in deal and so now we have a pair of air-cooled twins ... and we couldn't be happier.

For the record, Andy tends to like Triumphs and finds my Scrambler to be a little too small for comfort, so he was happy to go for the Triumph even though some would say that the Scrambler is the better bike.

Hi, Janet! How the heck have you been doing?
Good to see you back here.
I saw your bike in red a couple of weeks back at an impromptu car show here in Santa Barbara CA. I was fascinated by it and paid little attention to the cages surrounding me for about 15 minutes.
The bike looked like you would need surgery to remove the smile from your face after riding it.
Is it a 690? That is what I thought looking over the motor.

BTW, I am partial to the yellow myself after having a yellow Superhawk and a yellow/black 929RR.

In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.

It's 803 cc. It's the old air-cooled motor from the Monster 796, detuned slightly (75 bhp) and with just one throttle body instead of the two the 796 had.

It HAD to be the yellow one for me - it is called '62 Yellow, referring to the year of the first Ducati Scrambler, and I was born in '62. It just looks more special in the yellow than the red too IMHO. It's my fourth yellow bike

It is a lot of fun to ride. When it was new the throttle action was a bit too quick for my liking, but I think it has calmed down and I have got used to it, so we've met in the middle.
