I saw this bike at Daytona Bike Week in March, 2014. It was at the main Yamaha booth. It didn't have the geometry/balanced look of a scrambler but looked like a cruiser that was converted. Its wheelbase and rake and trail make it look long.

The real show stopper at that show for Yamaha was the 2015 Yamaha SR400 turned into scrambler by Jeff Palhegyi as shown at the bikeexif site.

That bike looked so good in person. Its dimensions and fit and finish ignited some serious motorcycle lust. I just looked like it would work well. That's how I feel about the Duc Scrambler.

That 950 looks very heavy! I like the design overall, but it certainly wouldn't sway me away from the Ducati. If anything, I'd like an even smaller scrambler like the 400 above. Light weight and agility is the most appealing aspect of the genre for me!

It looks great but it is a custom bike. I think part of the appeal of the Scrambler is that it is a Scrambler without you having to make any changes to it. I'm all for custom bikes, but I think that outright Scramblers are the thing that excites me more than custom Scramblers only because a Scrambler you can buy outright seems more rare these days in some ways.

Yeah, the XV950 is 150 pounds heavier than the Scrambler. Not at all what I'm looking for. It looks cool though.

I like this more than xv950/scramble , and i that is a lovely looking bike, this looks so much lighter and more manageable.

Do you guys really think that the Ducati Scrambler will prompt the Japanese to come out with their own versions of the bike? It seems like many of those brands have given up on this style of bike for the time being. Is this the thing to make them come back to the lifestyle game instead of making sport bike after sport bike?

I was just about to say. The looks are appealing but Im sure If I was to take it for a ride it would feel a tad bit too heavy.

I bet the Japanese factory's are all "scrambling" to get their own version of the Scrambler launched.....>:D
Yes they are missing out and most likely be late to the show playing catch up.
