I have been reading that we can expect the new Ducati Scrambler to have a air-cooled 90-degree V-twin engine with a displacement of 696cc.

Ducati has also manufactured a 400cc engine because laws in japan give engines of that size a tax and insurance rate deduction. So we could see a 400cc version as well.

Given that the Scrambler is supposed to be light weight, that makes for a pretty fast bike. Sounds like fun.

Internet says the Scrambler could be getting the 821 cc liquid-cooled engine in Ducati's 2013 Hypermotard, and possibly share some of its architecture.

While others fiercely support the rumors of a new Scrambler powered by an air-cooled engine displacing between 400 and 600cc in single-cylinder setup.

Likely the engine that will power the new Scrambler is Ducati's tried and true air-cooled 90-degree V-Twin in its 696cc setup straight out of the 696 Monster.

I could see Ducati offering more than one engine option in the Scrambler. One for people who want to go really fast, and another for people who are looking for something a bit more casual.

The Scrambler would be lighter than the Monster, no? So that would mean the Scrambler goes faster too.

If this scrambler is supposed to be the entry level Ducati i doubt we see them going multiple engines. Its possible the Scrambler gets different smaller displacement engines for SE Asia and those type of developing markets while NA and EUR get something with a bit more punch.

Seriously doubting Ducati will give us a choice of 2 or 3 engines. The original Scrambler was never about speed it was about adventure, discovery and style.

Beyond the speculation, what kind of engine would you like to see in the new Scrambler?
the biggest I'd be happy with is the 696cc from the monster. But id like to see something closer to the original 400cc. I'm not sure if ducati even has an engine like this anymore, if not the 696 is likely.

Anything bigger and it will overlap with the Hypermotard.

For the scrambler I would honestly prefer the 696cc motor from the monster. 821cc is too large. yes i said it. too large.

Fully in agreement, honest 696cc is a little much as well especially if the Scrambler is anything like the original. You want something fun and engaging not terrifying and stressful..

Does Ducati currently have an engine that is smaller than the 696cc from the Monster? Would this smaller engine be brand new, or would it be the same as one that is already in a different bike?

696cc will be great, if they do that then they should make a mini scrambler that sits right above the Honda Grom. Even if they price it $500-1000 more it will be something people will seriously consider over a Grom.

From what I've been reading it is pretty settled that the Scrambler will use the Monster's 696cc engine. More powerful than many were thinking, but I'm not going to complain about that. I do wonder if this means that Ducati will discontinue the 696cc Monster. It doesn't seem to make sense to sell two bikes that are around the same price with the same engine. You'd just be competing with yourself.
