Ducati Scrambler breaks cover
For many months, the world’s motorcycling media has been constantly titillated with snippets about the new Ducati Scrambler, and finally, the full story is out. No, it’s not a 450 single, as was the original Scrambler from the late ‘sixties, but it’s guaranteed to be easier to start. Available in four styles – Icon, Urban Enduro, Full Throttle, and Classic, the Scrambler employs the well known oil/air cooled L-twin 803cc two-valve engine, with various combinations of chassis fitments and details. The base model Icon (in Ducati Red) lists at $12,990 which the yellow version, reminiscent of the original, is $150 more. Top of the specs is the Full Throttle which comes with a Termignoni exhaust and has a RRP of $14,990. We’ll have a full test of the new model soon, and deliveries are expected to begin in January 2015.
