If the Scrambler doesn't end up being a mini monster like I hoped. Do you think Ducati has a market for a mini monster?

not sure what the CC's and price will be like for the 2014 scrambler, but if it's high enough that it will be unattainable to people who can just afford a Honda Grom, then they should consider something along the lines of a Grom...within it's CC and price range.

The GROM is a minibike isn't it? Not sure I mean that small. I just meant a smaller displacement Monster at a smaller size with less expensive parts and materials being sold for less. Budget monster?

Kind of like what I want the scrambler to be like.

ducati would have to cut a lot from the mini monster just to actually be a direct competitor to the Grom, i don't see it happening.
it'll be better if Ducati just builds a smaller and cheaper version

agreed, smaller and cheaper. maybe made in asia? i know it would be INSANELY popular in Asia. Ducati should seriously consider it. If that Scrambler doesn't end up filling that cheaper and smaller role.

I just don't know about a smaller one I mean for ducati's sake. There a new bunch of these little bikes coming out but to see ducati do it...

I guess they can always give it a try but for the most part people will just end up buying other small bikes for less and replicating the look.

many people like the copy the Monster styling. People love the monster because of the style. I would like to see it expand into a mini for the urban nuts!

It really depends on the competition taking in to account for the price some might just pick the the others for the more affordable option. I mean if they can justify what they are getting right.

i highly doubt there will be a smaller version of the monster
ducati has this premium bike experience going on and i think a low-priced "mini" version of something already easily attainable will bring the brand down

Yeah exactly and the scrambler itself is already at the lower price point of them all. I can't see them going any lower in numbers with a new segment.

x2

there are segments they can enter that wont make them seem like less of a brand but IMO this is where it should stop.

Exactly, I don't know if Ducati is doing that bad to really step in to that world of mini bikes. I don't feel that they need to but I could be wrong.

whats wrong with the minibike market? it's a niche market. not a very large one... specialty brand, specialty segment, specialty models.

nothing is wrong with it, i just think it's not a segment ducati should get into, it's not just something i can see ducati in unless they want to expand and hit the low level, cheaper, segments, then manybe.

I feel that ducati is not in that stage or has a need to fill in that small market for mini bikes just yet. But if they ever have to that just means one thing... maybe the bigger bikes arent doing so well.

not really.. or they are just expanding their market..

Minibikes are loved by many. And Ducati doesn't really have anything that is small let alone mini.
