Surprisingly they actually speak about the bike, GASP! >:D

First Ride: The Ducati Scrambler Is An Amazingly Fun Bike For All Riders

Readout could be a small problem...

. A single, round LCD gauge is offset to the right, with all the usual info – speed, exterior temp, trips, etc. – and a rev-counter at the bottom. That's the only thing I'd change. Ducati says it's in keeping with the style of the '70s, but it's too small to see at a glance and swings clockwise – which just looks weird.

Just like to point out, that on both reviews, both riders had full face helmets, going back to an early thread, Full or Open face helmet.


I don't want to be a jerk to those who disagree, but I think any experienced rider would never want to ride without a full face helmet. I'd honestly probably rather be dead than to have my entire face crushed in an accident, and I think people who wear half or even 3/4 face helmets have never been close to someone who has died from inadequate helmet protection. Unfortunately, I have, so a full face is the only option for me and my (very infrequent) passengers. You know what feels better than the air rushing over your face? Being alive.

Not to hijack the thread, but since the Scrambler is aimed at new riders...and since we all, in one way or another, like looking "cool" on the bike...I'll chime in.

DenverDuc is right. I come from a family of cops, (my father was a motorcycle cop for quite a while) and I have heard far too many stories to wear an open-face helmet. There are some very cool full-face options out there.
