From one French and one Italian source...

Ducati, Domenicali smentisce: "Nessuno scooter in arrivo"

A model which instead will soon be a part of the line-up is the new Ducati Ducati Scrambler , whose prototype has already been immortalized in some spy photos . that MCN has already managed to grab the very early test shots while the bike was ridden around Bologna.

The 'reincarnation' for the new millennium Scrambler of the glorious 60s and 70s will probably receive the Desmodue engine of the Monster 796 (a L-Twin 803 cc air-cooled capable of delivering 87 hp at 8250 rev / min and 78 Nm of torque at 6250 r / min) and could be unveiled at the end of 2014 and then to make his entrance on the markets as the Model Year 2015.

The Scrambler original of the last century was a single-cylinder , which was proposed with different displacements between 125 and 450 cc, but Domenicali - notoriously not a fan of 'mono' - has officially confirmed that a return to such engines could be ruled out:

"Abbbiamo noticed a general trend globally that sees the rebirth of light models and style 'retro', but there will be no new model single cylinder Ducati: we believe we already have the engines that we need to enter this market . "

Now, nothing prevents this range to suit local circumstances. Suddenly, the project scrambler sees quite knighting. It will take an existing engine. A feature that helps to eliminate any idea of ​​a unique drum sound that would feed a 250 or 300cc thought Bologna.

That is longer than I would have liked to wait, but I guess its not that long. Right now I am most curious about price. Ducati doesn't make cheap bikes. I am trying to figure out how low Ducati wants to or can go with the price of the Scrambler.

Likely.
I doubt they would cheap out in other areas just to bring the price down to make it affordable, Ducati doesn't do that

especially if they're taking pieces from the monster. We'll be lucky if it comes in under $10K Jayyysssuuss

I thought the this bike was going to be less expensive. Hearing that it will be about the same as other Ducatis is disappointing. Maybe its time to start looking into other brands that make more affordable bikes.

Anyone else having second thoughts?

even if it's not under $10k, it should still be worth it. Ducati has always provided great value with it's products. i have yet to be disappointed with anything they sell. this is just going to be something more affordable and unique.

not yet. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. As was said above Ducati usually has an excellent value prop so I wont write them off until I can fondle the Scrambler in the metal ;)
