This should help; Motorcycle Ergonomics


Just click the red "+Add a Motorcycle" box near the top, and select Ducati Scrambler from the pull-down menu. All versions are pretty much the same fit.
Worth noting that you have to tweak the seat height on the ergonomics site. They default to 30.7 inches which is neither the quoted values of the standard seat (31.1) or the optional lowered seat (30.3).

Cheers,

FatRob.

I'm interested in the Classic, and have been looking for a breakout of the components/features that account for the $1500 difference between the Ikon and the Classic. (if this is covered in another thread, just point me to it, thanks)

I'm pretty sure it's NOT covered elsewhere in this forum, but maybe I can help shed a little light. The wheels cost about $1300, the seat- $350, and (unpainted)rear fender another $200 (IIRC) You get no credit for the OEM parts you take off.

The fact that there is no credit for the replaced OEM parts was definitely a consideration when I chose the Icon. I just don't see the value in the parts. The other models are all very cool, but the premium seems a little steep (over 17% more) for the difference.

My thinking when ordering the classic was that the parts needed to modify my Icon would be trickling in all year long and I was unwilling to wait

I wonder how much it would cost to source the needed parts to mod the Icon into a Classic. And I don't mean using Ducatis catalogue either...

I think the dry weight is 176 kg and not 170 (icon).

I read that the Classic has an aluminium swingarm, would that be damaged by using a swingarm lift for chain maintenance?
I really don not think so.

almost all racing bikes have aluminium frame/swingarm, some have holes for "bobbins", some other uses these kind of rubber supports to lift the bike (I bought them)

The Classic version of the Scrambler get the most interest for me. Wire spoke wheel assemblies are something wanted. My suspicion is that a set of aftermarket wire spoke wheels would cost at least the premium over the Icon.


Fenders are liked better and would like a really stout bash plate on the bottom.

I just went today to a bike show they had the Yellow Icon, nice seating on this bike really great suspension - well at least sitting on this bike felt great - now I have to ride it :)

well seeing the icon in person made me think I want the Classic, in fact the first thing I asked about the cost for the classic seat and they said about 600$ (here in Costa Rica)


why you guy opted for the classic different look maybe

BTW here icon 14500$ and classic 16000$

Those wheels cost $1300... EACH (as in $2600 total)

I almost took the classic myself but I basically abuse and then sell my bikes it would have been wasted on me. I'm also very over metal fenders... (that ding, bend and crack). I do like the spoked wheels and I wish there was a 5th model of the icon priced in the middle with spoked wheels.
