Fairly attractive pricing for the scrambler, I think its a bit steep for the new rider that has been oft talked about, but no matter for those of us not new riders with some cash to play with, sub $10K is an excellent place to begin IMO.

Scrambler Icon Ducati Red: $8,495
Scrambler Icon '65 Yellow: $8,595
Scrambler Classic: $9,995
Scrambler Enduro: $9,995
Scrambler Full Throttle: $9,995

I think the full throttle is best value simply because they include the Termi cans which the others do not get...

The Termi cans add nothing of value other than the name printed on them.

I'm disappointed in the pricing, 10 large should get me some better suspension components.

But Ive been waiting for over 20 years for this bike, so I'm paying for it.

Australian Pricing

I rang my local Ducati dealership here in Adelaide, South Australia and got this.
Icon - $14,790 ride away with 12 months rego.
All other models - $16,990 ride away with 12 months rego.


Please remember - Aussie Dollars.

I am actually happy with the pricing. I thought that it could have been worse. Its still on the pricey side, but its accessible for new riders if they have some extra cash. I'm definitely going for one of the Scramblers that costs $8,500, and not one that costs $9,500.

true, but new riders does not = young riders. They're going after the mid 20-30 young professional crowd. Its a lifestyle thing. and realistically the scrambler is not an entry level bike, too much power. But for those who don;t ever really intend to RIDE proper, I suppose it is a good entry level bike.

True entry level bike, used CBR125, $1000. But it doesn't fit the image... pardon me, misanthropy is showing ;)

Yea I would also say that the Scrambler is a bit powerful for an entry level bike. It seems to me more like a second bike that you get in your late 20s or early 30s. Those people are still considered millennials though so it lines up pretty much with what Ducati said it was going for.

Considering the bike comes with the 796 motor which you would have paid at least $10.5k to get in the Monster (in the US at least), I think the base price of $8.5k in the Scrambler is an excellent value. Sure the front suspension isn't adjustable, but it isn't on the Monster 796 either. Even compared to the Japanese or British competition the price is very fair IMO.

I don't think its a question/concern so much of adjustability but of overall component quality...

I really doubt there's going to be much difference in the quality between the Monster 796 and Scrambler. They both have inverted Kayaba front forks and I'm guessing they're both 43mm. It's conjecture until they actually get test ridden and reported on, but I would imagine the issues will only crop up for riders over 200 pounds which is the main complaint on the Monster 796.
