Who Has Ordered a Scrambler?

Wondering how many of you have pre orders in? I went yesterday to try and get my name on one, but the dealer told me that all theirs are spoken for. Said its going to be tough getting near one for the first year, at least round these parts...

I'm not going to be ordering anything until I hear about how the bike is when early adopters get it. I don't want to be committed to something that ends up having a whole bunch or problems.

Same here. I like to wait it out, see how the first year of production goes, if all goes as well as I want it to then buying into the 2nd year model is what i'll do.
I'm in no rush to get a bike anyways, i'm happy with what I have but still keeping my options open.

Put a deposit down as soon as I saw the photos and specs from Intermot.

My local dealer had already put in their initial order for 40 units, and were told by Ducati that they would most certainly not be getting all of them.

Not worried about the "first production run" stuff. That motor is anything but new.

I placed an order the day after the debut. I ordered an Icon in red, and got into the first batch of orders that my dealer is placing. I wasn't in the market for a bike and wasn't very impressed from the spy shots, but once I saw it I had to have one.

I also don't care about the first production year thing. That's a well established motor and none of the other important parts are very complicated.

I ordered a Scrambler classic as soon as I heard they came out.I figured most people were going with the Icon due to price and more color options but I really wanted the spoked wheels. Also hope that the vintage seat they are showing is real leather. I ordered as soon as possible because I want the bike as soon as possible and figured there might be demand issues.

Agreed with the others first production thing is a foolish fear. Perhaps if we were talking about a new ground up panigale, perhaps...

The engine and gearbox are tried and true, the suspension is slightly suspect but thats not going to improve significantly from the factory. The only difference year two will make is the chance Ducati adds new paint options...

So for the people who have ordered, do you have any idea when you are going to be getting your bikes in?

New paint option are what i'd like to see. I think that with a bike like this Ducati has the opportunity to do something much different with paint where it won't seem wrong.

My dealer estimated April. From the Italians I'd read that to mean maybe by June. With Audi running things, maybe they'll make May.
