Now, as for engines some say that the Scrambler could be getting the 821 cc liquid-cooled engine in Ducati's 2013 Hypermotard, and possibly sharing some of its architecture, at least as a base. 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.



We'll see eventually, what are you guys hoping for?

It's hard to say exactly what motor but I would be surprised if it wasn't a twin.
If Ducati is trying to move these bikes in numbers in south east asia a single cyl 400cc engine could do very well. Japan was the first to create laws giving special insurance deals and tax rates on 400cc engines, a law that enentually spread out to other Asian nations. Even if they offered the Scrambler with a choice 400cc single or 696cc twin. Especially in the NA market that choice could be very valuable.
