I feel like a proud papa getting the news today from the dealer. They called to tell me that Ducati is taking customer names and tracking them to PO's . This gives you an estimated delivery date. It will update the PO with VIN numbers as that information is updated during the build process. The April 15th delivery is fine with me. There won't be much riding before then for me in the middle of New England. Although warmer than normal temps has me suiting up to ride right now.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

The Icon is the first to hit the dealers. The rest of the bikes are going to be produced in later runs of production. Its assumed they will each be headed to the dealers in later stages of the year.

Congrats on putting your order in! Seems like plenty of people will be receiving their bikes in April. Any plans for mods or accessories?
First mod is to remove the plastic vapor canister (seen in photo in front of DUCATI logo on engine). I'm not sure if that is a USA thing or world wide but its got to go.

Then its a slip on exhaust.

Word has it California is to blame. I posted this in another forum. Here is a photo of the European Icon without the black box. I think it looks WAY better. Mine will be coming off:



And another pic of the European model:



EDIT: For reference, here is the US/Canada model with it:

This ugly thing is called "evap canister",and is mounted on many bikes for US.

Fortunately it is not used in Europe!

Not in Europe yet, on the Scrambler anyway as it's only Euro3, but the most of other new models for 2015 are Euro4 emissions compliant and have charcoal canisters (and, strangely, side reflectors). All new models must be Euro4 compliant by 2016 and existing models by 2017. The Scrambler production might be quite short-lived, or it will have gained a water-cooled engine. Euro4 won't be achievable with the air-cooled 2V engines.

Good info Derek.

Thanks

ah yes the vaunted charcoal canister. I remember last year when I was THINKNG about an FZ09 the cannister was causing all kinds of problems. I believe even the 899 panigales were having starting issues because of the can...

Good Information, i did not know.
THX! So it was a good idea to order a Scrambler with one of the last aircooled engines,without the f**ing EURO4,5,6,7 bla :D
And the only aircooled Ducati-engine available 2015!
I dont want to see a watercooled Scrambler.
Cheers

I spoke with my local dealer today. He said that Ducati asked for info on who had put down deposits and what type. He said late January, early February. I ordered an Icon and am in the first batch. He also said they are waiting for Ducati to post the USA accessory options as everyone has been asking and they want to start selling. Assumption is that this will happen in January.

My first mods will be intake, exhaust and probably the seat. I will have to sit on the stock seat first.

California does not yet require smog emissions checks on motorcycles so I am not worried about changing out the entire exhaust. If California does start requiring a test before you re-register your bike I can alway reinstall the stock system to get it tested. Cops only really care about noise, so it would only be a every other year registration chore.

I am also looking at the high plate mount but want to see one first. The rear bag says it mounts to a luggage rack. I am not really interested in the bag but would like to see what the luggage rack looks like.

Be aware that the dealer cannot install "off highway only" mods on a plated bike here in CA. Fortunately the fuel map re-flash can be done from your own PC
