GOLD, I have gold for you boys. Check it out, looks like the Scrambler was spotted in its natural habitat heavily camouflaged to throw of predators and the ducatisti...



We can be pretty sure this is the scrambler going off its classic design with modern Ducati cues tossed in. The engine looks like Ducati's 803cc air-cooled V-Twin lifted straight from the Monster 796, it puts out 87 hp/58 lb-ft of torque. Not bad, enough to have fun.

Loving the 70's style tank, its clearly been smoothed and elongated to hark back to the glory days of scrambling. But not the whole bike is retro, note the upside down forks and radially mounted Brembos, although those are all holding a SPOKED front wheel, thats right spoked. A side mounted shock is screwed directly to the banana swing out back, minus linkage, very Aprilia Shiver.

As for the headlight I'm pretty positive thats been borrowed fron one of Bologna's parts bin, I'm expecting something a little more classic when production rolls around. Oh and dont forget to check out that big flat banana seat. Classic Scrambler indeed, just missing the rear fender..

I also have reason to believe that headlight is also from the 'spare parts bin'
A more classic looking round headlight would be much better and can be modern in some ways

Looks like a mish mash of parts the front wheel being different to the rear and the headlight. I dont know if this could be official or just some crumbs to lead us on false trail.

beat ya to it.

no round headlight no care. i hope this isn't a scrambler to be honest.
why not? It fits with everything we've been specing about? If its not a scrambler what else do you think it could be? We've already seen the new monster out and about in Camo and it definitely looks different than this....


thats the new monster..

How exciting! The first bit of news aside from rumors.

Hopefully there are only more spy shots to come now.

I can't wait till someone is able to make a semi accurate rendering of the Scrambler.

im hoping its a test mule or something.

the Scrambler just looks like a mini monster.

I wanted a vintage styled scrambler with a monster engine.

At this point I wouldn't be too worried, seems like there's a while to go before we see the scrambler, so chances are what we saw was a test mule. At least I hope it is. :confused:

In the first shot it seems like it has gold-ish forks, i hope we actually get that, it will go well with just about any color Ducati makes this bike available in

well the spy does have some of the retro in it. The skinny long tank, which is partially hidden between his legs. Riding position is properly upright and the Scrambler mule does have the banana seat. I think alot of the retro will come from paint and final details like a rear fender, and we still haven't seen the exhaust which really sets the scramblers style...

although if you look just behind the rider the small silver/grey piece sticking up between the rider and the tail light could be the tip of some nice high pipes ;)

by the looks of the rear end it seems like we won't need a tail tidy kit :D

ehhh. I might just end up getting a 696

then you would be just like every other Ducatisti, the Monster is so common and the Scrambler is at least going to be unique compared to the monster. You can't honestly say you think the Monster looks better than even the Scrambler spy shot.

the scrambler won't be common for the first couple to few months but eventually things will pick up and it will be just as common as this. Just get what ever you like.

i prefer the monster over that spy shot personally. i hate the headlights in that spy shot.
