Well if Ducati doesn't want our money, Triumph certainly does. The new 2014 Triumph Scrambler has shown itself..

Triumphs new Scrambler carries on the newly sought-after heritage and brings in several upgrades over last year.

The 2014 Triumph Scrambler will be available in two color schemes: Matt Pacific Blue and the striking Lunar Silver/Diablo Red combo, for a base price starting at ~$10k. The seat has been revised for a more relaxed riding position.

While the Triumph Scrambler looks very old school, there is a lot of modern-day tech to make riding more fuel-efficient, eco-friendly and enjoyable.

This Scrambler is powered by a brawny 865cc engine with top-class fuel injection and capable of 58 hp @ 6,800 rpm and 50 ft-lbs @ 4,750 rpm.

Add in high-performance KYB suspension and powerful Nissin brakes to conquer the rigors of rough riding and that's it...

Certainly an attainable target for Ducati, I'm confident Ducati can blow Triumph out of the water performance wise and should be able to clock it in under the Triumphs MSRP or at least match it with better specs...

So it seems like the Ducati Scrambler will have a less powerful engine and will be slightly cheaper. The design of the Triumph Scrambler is really nice though. I see they opted for the raised exhaust pipes which has been a matter of debate on this forum. I'll be interested to compare the two bikes once I have a better idea of what the Ducati Scrambler will actually be.

Is that the photo of the 2014 Triumph Scrambler?
im trying to figure that out too, hard to tell if it's new or old, so far i believe it actually is a 2014 model.

it looks pretty good, going to have to see how it looks sitting next to a Ducati Scrambler.

the vintage styling of the scrambler is appealing. Seems like every one is coming back with them. so there is a market for them. instead of spending money on a resto now you could get them brand new but are they the same as the previous ones?

Yes that is the 2014 Triumph Scrambler, Its a vintage look with modern bones. Very Hipsterish...

I'm personally a big fan of the high pipes but they will get hot and fast that close to your leg...

I think Ducati has to go with High pipes on their Scrambler, its the best way to throw it back to the classic days and it will make the scrambler easily distinguishable from the rest of the Ducati lineup. I personalyl feel most ducati exhausts are garish, except for the 1199 Panigale

good point on the high mounted pipes become a nuisance after riding for some time, for short distance riding I guess they would be perfect, it sucks because scramblers tend to have a more comfortable riding position.

Not a bad thought, something new and up to date would help. Not to mention some of the older scrambler owners can tell you or even show you what the consequences are when you have a pipe right there.

Yup Triumph would not be an easy oponnent to beat when it comes to scramblers.
Yeah definitely not, what would help them is keeping up with the great designs they usually come out with all the time. Plus the name sells it's self, a lot of people, even those that aren't bike enthusiasts know what Ducati is.

that's easy to say
we need to wait to see how the initial sales go, it will be a good way to gauge what success ducati will have
