Hello everyone!
Gianluca here, from Rome, Italy. just placed my order yesterday for a Red Icon. I should receive it by mid April.
To be honest, i did not like the scrambler at all when I first saw it in pictures last october.
Then a week ago i saw it in the flesh at a local exhibition here, and it was love at first sight! I was already shopping for a new bike, so a test drive was in order.
I had a chance to test drive it last week, and things got even better!
So yesterday, i went back the Dealer (Ducati Roma) just to have another look, and I ended up leaving with a contract signed! ;)

I will keep you posted on the bike, and I m looking forward to get some more insights on accessories and modifications for the bike!

Ciao!
Gianluca

Ciao Gianluca,
complimenti per la tua nuova moto!
Anche io l'ho ordinata da Ducati Roma il 9 Marzo...anche io Icon Gialla!
A me hanno detto 20 giorni di attesa, a te mi pare un pò di più o sbaglio?
Ti hanno regalato qualche accessorio con l'acquisto? Ti ha seguito Roberto?
Non vedo l'ora di ritirare la mia!!!

Ciao basilisco,
Mi hanno detto dopo Pasqua, per cui forse un po' meno di un mese. Si mi ha seguito Roberto, ma non c'è sconto sulla moto. Mi ha regalato la sella del modello enduro che comunque volevo mettere.
Ciao!
Gianluca

Welcome!!! what changed for you when you saw it in person?
Well, good question. I think in terms of aesthetics it is much better in person than in pictures. The thing that I really disliked about the bike was the plate holder, but then I saw the Classic version and that one worked for me. In the end I chose the Icon because I like better the rims and the colour matching fenders, and I can move the plate in a more conventional position (I ordered the specific accessory with the bike).

The second element was the test. I am not buying a bike anymore without having tested it. And I have to say that it is really fun, and good for the purpose I have in mind: City commuting and weekends in twisty roads on the appennines. But it is not my only bike in the garage, I do mostly enduro, so the scrambler would be my everyday bike.

I also considered the new V7, the stone is gorgeous, but I think the V7 is a real classic, it is the old small block engine and tonti frame updated to these days. The scrambler is a modern bike with a classic look (It seems to me the same they did with the Mini and the fiat 500). But I do not like all the marketing b...hit around it! I told that to the dealer and quite surprisingly he told me that most of those buying the scrambler are in their 40s and 50s (I am 47) and not to younger people, as they were planning. In the end they might have got the demographics wrong 😜.

Ciao
Gianluca

I felt the same way about the Scramblers when I finally got to see them in person at a local show, but that goes with just about any bike and even cars that I see both online and off.

Seeing them in person just gives you this way to gauge it that can't be done from sitting on the sidelines.
