Du­cati Scram­bler breaks cover

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

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.
