We know that the two will be sharing the 803cc air cooled V Twin, what does that mean for the Scrambler?

First and foremost the desmo does not like idle, naturally it pops and burbles in all the right ways, but low gears do not particularly agree with its nature. Interestingly the Ducati gear boxes can be prone to providing false neutrals.

As for rideability, from what I 've been able to gather the 803cc Twin is most happy above 5000 RPM. Most of its power is brought on between the relatively narrow 5-9K powerband.

Anyone with extras to add please feel free to chime in. This is just a preliminary look at what could be...

I own a Monster 796, and quite honestly it was absolutely necessary to install a one tooth lower front sprocket - stock is 15T and the most common mod is 14T. That made the bike MUCH happier around town and at low speeds. The motor is not super happy between idle and around 2,000 rpms, but the power is smooth and strong between 3,000 and 8,000 rpms especially with the 14T sprocket. I presume one of the reasons why the Scrambler motor was "retuned" or "detuned" is to promote better/smoother power deliver off idle through the middle of the power band. I ordered a Scrambler, and I may ask the Ducati dealer to install a 14T sprocket right off the bat since all modern Ducatis are geared too high from the factor IMO due to emissions and noise restrictions.

The monster is 15x39 and the scrambler 15x46 with the same gearbox.

It's like two tooth less on the front sprocket of the monster. No need of 14 on the scrambler except if you do mostly off road.


That sounds great! Do you mind referencing where you got the info for 15x46? I've seen that twice now in forums, but I haven't seen any official specs on it. I would be elated to see if that is the final gearing for the Scrambler.
