I've been hearing that the new Ducati Scrambler may just be a Monster with a different tank, seat and rear fender. Given that it runs on the same engine as the Monster, will the Scrambler just be a Monster with a few new parts?

From what Ive been reading the Scrambler is more likely to steal from the Hypermotard. Majority of Scrambler renderings have used the hypermotards frame and monsters engine. But i dont think the Scrambler gets the Monsters 696, its going to be smaller. If the Scrambler is going to be successful in the booming SE Asian countries it needs to come with ideally a 400cc engine, maybe 500cc for kicks.

The Scrambler is VERY important to Ducatis success in SE Asia. If you want proof look at the success Triumph is having with their Scrambler. Ducati even built a new plant in Thailand a couple years back, the Scrambler is expected to be produced there..

The bike has to be modular in order to keep costs down, but i think Ducati will use the entire parts bin not just strip a Monster down...

Basically everything that the Scrambler is is being built and put together in SE Asia, so I'd agree that the bike is being made for that market. And they do love their bikes.

I have been hearing a lot of different things about the engine and frame and such. I hope that they build the Scrambler from a completely new frame, but I would be okay with them using a motor from another bike (that seems like the cheapest thing to do.) Does Ducati have an engine that is smaller than the monster's that they could use?
