Scrambler Ducati-Which version would you choose?

I just put a deposit on one, and while I was there the owner of the dealership told me how many people had deposits on which versions. I don't particularly believe him, but not ready to say why just yet.

Which one would you choose, and why?


Edit; I've ordered the Urban Enduro

Spoked wheels of the UE and Classic look great, but I don't want tubes, the FT handlebar is lower than the Icon's - so the Icon makes the best farkling base for my needs.

Wife likes the spoked wheels and matte finish.

They got a winner here!

The one negative- 7,500 miles for a value adjustment. WTF?

The valve inspection interval is now 18k miles on this version of the 803cc "796 Monster" engine.

I was at the IMS show today in NYC with both the dealer guys and corporate folks. All said the same thing- 7500. The print material on display on the bikes says 7500.

But I hope you're right.

I didn't notice the printed material at the show in Long Beach, but the 2 Duc reps I talked with, one each day that I went, both said 18k.

I hope I'm right too!

There are good photos of each model, from various angles and showing options plus technical specs, on Ducati's Scrambler site: http://scramblerducati.com/en

Whichever one isn't already parked at Starbucks.

I like the Urban Enduro (most Scrambler like) and Full Throttle (cafe) best.

The Icon choice to save money only makes sense if, you are happy with the cast wheels. If you plan to put wires on it later, there goes the savings.
That's why I choose the Classic. I also don't care much for the swingarm mounted fender thingy on the other models.
Any of them look like a lot of fun.

Thanks for the pics there, Ronko.

I still like the Classic for the rear fender, but they all need a little more front fender for this all weather rider.

I voted Urban Enduro. They all look like good hooligan bikes.
The red Icon with carbon tank panels looks pretty tough too.
I'm sure they will rumble.

And now I'm wondering, since this is AdvRider, if the results would be different with a different population? After considering how popular cruisers are in the USA compared to this board...what are the "hipsters" buying?

I wonder...the Dealer told me that the Icon was as popular as the others combined. He also told me he had deposits on at least 15 bikes, half Icons, and mine would be the 4th Urban Enduro. My receipt says "Scrambler #4", which leads me to believe that mine was the 4th deposit he received...and if the ratio he mentioned is true, that would be 2 Icons, and 1 each of Classic and my UE.

That would be awkward, like women showing up in the same dress. But, hey, Ducati has it covered, just run down and swap some parts and you're not a putz again.

Because it may be quite a bit better off road than 90% of the Beasts.
