The original Ducati Scrambler was around in the 60s and 70s and is a classic bike.



The new model probably won't be a complete redo of the old models, so the question is how close will the new Ducati Scrambler be to the old one as far as the design goes? The new model is expected to be based off a concept bike that you can see here:





A combination of the old and the new should make this bike to die for. What are you expecting in the new model?

This is the version that i am most excited about so far. Updated, but still the same in many ways. I'm sure there will be many more renderings before we get any clue as to what it will actually look like.

I hope that they include the tall side mirrors in the final design. Those things are awesome. I like how they mimic tall handle bars, but they are mirrors. Very cool.

Some of the pics here show the Scrambler with a visor above the headlight. I would prefer it without. The single round headlight is to die for, and putting that visor on top of it ruins it.

Looks like on some of the renderings that the scramblers tach/speedo are hiding under that visor. Probably necessary IMO

this feature is about an older scrambler that was restored and updated right? not about the new scrambler to come?
Actually i think its both, they touch on Ducati reviving the Scrambler and then show that updated Scrambler as something that we could get from Ducati.

That MCN article actually speculates the Scrambler will get a 796cc engine....

That's more powerful than I've heard. Outside of speculation, how powerful an engine would you like to see on the Scrambler?

696cc from the Monster, no bigger. Scramblers are about adventure, discovery, style and above all fun.

Bigger engines in Motos dont always = bigger fun. Usually with a beast of an engine you're scared numb that one throttle blip will put you over the line.

I would really like the Scrambler to show up with something in the 400-500cc range, that way you can ride the bike much closer to its limits without the risks of a 900cc hooligan.

I'd agree with this. The bike does not have to go that fast. Often times on a bike you feel like you are going a lot faster than you are compared to a car because you are exposed and more vulnerable.

I just want it to go fast enough for me to ride around like a boss. Not so fast I could be in a Fast and Furious movie.

Nothing to worry about then. The Scrambler is supposed to be a fun bike. Not too serious, but still seriously cool.

I think this bike is going to be extremely popular. Just what everyone wants, an expertly styled (hopefully,) fun and casual bike.

Come on Ducati, do us proud.

there was a photo of the new scrambler posted on this forum somewhere. it looked great, payed tribute to the original with classic styling but as you get to the engine and other details you can see where it starts to look very modern
