Would you be disappointed if the scrambler showed up like something along the lines of the Royal Enfield Continental GT? I know the GT is a little more cafe style but it hits all the old school heart strings in all the right places....
I wouldn't be disappointed. Ducati would put its own spin on the design and give us a nice engine. I think this Royal Enfield Continental is a great classically-influenced bike. That is basically what I am looking for from Ducati with the Scrambler.
I like the Royal Enfield, but if I wanted one than I would just buy one. I hope that the Scrambler is unique enough to be its own thing. I don't want it to just be the Ducati version of something else.
Royal Enfield just announced that it will be lowering its prices. The flagship 535cc Continental GT Cafe Racer is now $5,999, a reduction of $1,400. The rest of Royal Enfield's lineup also received lower prices.
Looks like there is a lot of competition and it is causing some price reductions. Maybe now people really will go for a Royal Enfield instead of a Ducati which will undoubtedly cost more.
