Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The Su­per­sport 939 wasn’t the only Du­cati spied test­ing this week. Also seen were a new Scram­bler vari­ant and two re­vised Mon­sters.

The Scram­bler is the most in­ter­est­ing of the three. It ap­pears to be a new ver­sion of the rel­a­tively poor-sell­ing Scram­bler Ur­ban En­duro which, com­pared to the rest of the Scram­bler range, has been some­thing of a flop. The ride height of the new bike ap­pears to be raised – a hint to­wards in­creased off-road abil­ity – and the use of lots of dis­guise tape sug­gests there is new stuff un­der­neath that Du­cati don’t want any­one to see.

The two Mon­sters are more mys­te­ri­ous. The smaller vari­ant ap­pears to be a Mon­ster 795 which is only sold in the Far East. This model has Euro4 spec fork-mounted re­flec­tors, which ei­ther sug­gests it might be com­ing to Europe, or that Du­cati have stan­dard­ised their fit­ment for all mar­kets.

The other Mon­ster is a mildly breathed-on 1200, which is al­most cer­tainly just tweaks to get it through Euro4 emis­sions reg­u­la­tions which come into

force on Jan­uary 1, 2017.
