Ducati Scrambler - Coming Soon ???

http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/fe...r_coming_soon/

From the Motocyclist article:

"Ducati has lately done an impressive job penetrating new market segments with sophisticated (and expensive) models like the Multistrada and Diavel. The Italian manufacturer’s next major growth strategy, however, will likely target the opposite end of the price and performance spectrum with a new generation of inexpensive and accessible Scramblers.

The company’s intentions have been revealed by its recent application for a new trademark on the “Ducati Scrambler” name. The application in Europe petitions for rights to use the name on everything from bikes to clothing and toys, suggesting that Scrambler will become another of the company’s model “families” alongside the six that already exist: Monster, Multistrada, Hypermotard, Streetfighter, Superbike, and Diavel.

Of course, there is a historical precedent for this name: Ducati produced single-cylinder Scramblers in many displacements in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, and these originals retain a loyal cult following today. While the idea of a new, single-cylinder Ducati is appealing, the reality is that the firm is more likely to use one or more of its existing V-twin motors to power any new model. The less-powerful, air-cooled motor from the Monster 696 would be a logical choice, distinguishing the new bike from higher-performance Multistradas and Hypermotards. With 60 horsepower, it could be ideal for a lightweight, versatile all-arounder. In terms of appearance, Ducati is expected to combine the cutting-edge technology that recent Ducatis have favored with only subtle retro styling cues, rather than an all-out aping of the original Scrambler’s style.

Ducati has long harbored hopes of reviving the Scrambler concept, but while the idea has been discussed in the past, the new trademark application is the first sign of action. And given that recent Ducati trademark applications have been where we first learned the names Diavel, Panigale, Superquadro, and Skyhook, there’s good reason to believe that the bike carrying the Scrambler name will be revealed within the next few months—likely at the EICMA show in Milan this upcoming November."

I sorely wish the market had more thumper street bikes available. I would be seriously interested in a modern Duc single, but it sounds like they want to put one of their twins in it.

I would still take a look at that bike though. The Triumph scrambler is cool, and no doubt a Duc Scrambler would outprice it by at least $1k.

I had a 450 scrambler, was kinda fun, I'm not getting misty eyed over it.

Retro nostalgia for folks who never rode the original?

All the fun of duacti maintenance without the benefits of a real offroad bike. Great!

I like it. It would be a fun running around town bike. If they made one like the concept, I would consider it. But I doubt they make a small single, and probably will stick a twin in it. That wouldn't appeal to me so much, but I'll have a look at this thing if it comes out.

I like it. I think that if it ever hits production it will loose the clean look once they add electronics, wiring, catalytic converter, evaporative canister and the necessary plumbing.

that clean look isn't even a real concept model, it's just a hacked up photoshop job that combines elements of several bikes. No way a real concept bike from ducati would have such crude cut lines on the layer masking and use unrealistic elements like the handlebar riser height - look how far back and high those bars are, and the seat/fender combo is really poorly cut/pasted. Really poor concept mock up... never going to be a real bike because that image is not actually from ducati.

Kinda reminds me of a Hodaka layout with couple of extra unnecessary cross braces and a XR250 engine stuffed in.

I would expect it to be a dog. A stiff dog but a dog none the less.

If the illustration is by Luca Bar or Oberdan Bezzi, then no. We won't be seeing it soon... And that illustration is by Luca Bar.
