Anyway, I've come round to liking the FZ-09 better, and I bet they're more reliable. Better engine, too and a bit more room on them.

Can you believe it’s almost a year since Ducati threw the wraps off the new Scrambler? Since then, it’s become Ducati’s most popular bike—outselling the Multistrada by two to one.
The Ducati Scrambler was revealed at the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany. The next Intermot show will be 2016, and in a neat twist of fate, the headline bike will once again be a Scrambler—this very rapid custom from WalzWerk Racing.....

Alex Earle is a motorcycle builder with a vision. A vision specifically for the Ducati Monster, one of the most iconic, distinguishable and recognized motorcycles on the planet. He took that vision and drive and when combined with his mechanical mind he was able to sketch, create, build and customize 5 brand new Ducati Monsters into fire breathing Roost Monsters that can tear up the asphalt in any canyon on the dirt on any track. These one of a kind custom Monsters appeal to street and dirt riders alike....

MOTO LUST: DUCATI SCRAMBLER PAUL SMART LIMITED EDITION Ducati Thailand gets all 24 of these gorgeous Scramblers, unveiled by Paul Smart himself last week in Bangkok.

September 17, 2015



The Ducati Scrambler Icon (and the other variations in the Scrambler line) pretty much hit motorcycle enthusiasts right in our gooey center. Never mind that it’s essentially a rebranded air-cooled Monster (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and built to a budget (not that there’s anything wrong with that either), the Scrambler’s great styling, easy riding, and fun personality have made it a hit for all kinds of riders.
But now there’s this Ducati Scrambler Paul Smart Limited Edition to tear down any last shred of resistance you might harbor. Well, at least for 24 customers in Thailand, where the bike was conceived and where this very limited edition was sold out in short order.
This Ducati Thailand project echoes the GT750 V-twin superbike that Paul Smart rode to victory in the 1972 Imola 200, all the way down to the vertical bronze strip on the gas tank meant to mimic the clear fiberglass that served as a kind of gas gauge.



Sure, mixing the vintage roadracer with the Scrambler vibe is a little weird, but the colors are classic and it works like magic, down to the brown leather seat and number-plated tailsection featuring Smart’s racing number (16).
Icing on the cake was having Smart himself at the “delivery” party in Bangkok, there to hang out with the owners and to personally autograph every bike.
Sadly, Ducati USA has no current plans to offer such a bike here and, in fact, found out about the bike only because of our inquiry!
I guess we’ll have to keep shopping around for the Paul Smart 1000 LE Sport Classic we can’t afford used anymore.

Ducati plans for supersize Scrambler
1100cc Scrambler teased by Ducati

DUCATI has dropped its strongest hint yet that an 1100cc supersize Scrambler could be joining the hugely successful family.

Speaking at the launch of the Scrambler Sixty2 in Barcelona, project manager Federico Sabbioni told Visordown: 'We've got the engines, there is room to make something bigger. We'll see, we have a number of ideas and we're thinking about it... there is a volcano of ideas.'

Don't get too excited about the prospect of a 200hp Panigale-engined Scrambler on the horizon, instead Sabbioni insisted that any larger displacement would adhere to the Scrambler's philosophy of a two-valve, air-cooled engine.

He said: 'I think we will continue to apply this kind of engine, we have in the past made a number of different displacements of this engine so we have experience and room to do a different version in terms of engine sizing. There's great possibility to stretch the brand with the 800cc engine, then of course there's also the possibility to make the bigger engine.'

Currently the largest Desmodue in Ducati's range is the air-cooled 800cc engine housed in the Scrambler.

However, the 1100cc Desmodue Evoluzione, last used in the Monster EVO and discontinued in 2013, looks the most likely candidate for the larger model. Of course, Ducati's engineers will need to make the engine Euro 4 compliant.

With Ducati's use of the name Sixty2, a reference to the original 1962 250cc single cylinder Scrambler, Visordown wondered if an affordable entry-level 250 was the next logical step – particularly with the possibility of building the much simpler engine in India or the Far East.

Ducati firmly quashed this idea – suggesting it would be damaging to the prestige of the brand.

'250cc is too small,' said Sabbioni. 'We think this is a bottom line (400cc twin) and we have to respect that and not stretch our brand and our values too much to the lower end. We didn't want to just copy the old Scrambler 30 years later, we want to re-imagine them in a post heritage way, try to add contemporary technology and innovation but keeping the style and inspiration of the old bike.'

Two New Ducati Scramblers Spotted in CARB Docs?

More new model news, as filings with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) suggest that we will see two new Scrambler models debuting, later this year.
We come to this conclusion because emissions papers from CARB state that “Scrambler CR” and “Scrambler DS” models are coming from Ducati for 2017, in addition to the models we already have from the Italian manufacturer.

The two-letter designations imply that we are likely to see a café racer (CR) version of the Ducati Scrambler, as well as a dual-sport (DS) version of the machine, which we have already seen in spy photos.
This news isn’t surprising, since Ducati has made no secret about its desire to expand the Scrambler lineup.

Ducati insiders have also intimated to Asphalt & Rubber that the Ducati Scrambler brand does not need to be only comprised of scrambler-styled motorcycles, with a café racer model mentioned as a possible point of expansion for the air-cooled v-twin motorcycle collection.
With 75hp of peak power, and 410 lbs wet, the base 803cc Scrambler model has the makings of an adept dual-sport, just add some longer suspension, and slap on proper crash protection.

As such, we have already seen positive responses on the spy photos of the machine, which have been circulating on the internet with these exact changes visible.
This should make the Scrambler DS a very welcomed addition to the Scrambler Ducati brand. The café racer model is hard to judge though, especially without a visual reference.

The custom café scene is noticeably losing steam in the motorcycle industry, with every permutation of the Honda CB350 having already been explored – we kid.
In seriousness though, the café racer aesthetic seems to be on the downslope of the heritage motorcycle zeitgeist, something which can be seen by the posts to social media and bellwether sites like the esteemed BikeEXIF.

What this bodes for OEMs, who are looking to cash in on the post-authentic motorcycle movement, remains to be seen, but it’s possible that the development time it takes to get motorcycles to market could mean that hesitant motorcycle manufacturers will have a hard time staying on-trend with the fickle aesthetic tastes of millennials.
Ducati has always excelled at making motorcycle segments their own though, with the company’s unique Italian flare often distinguishing it from its competitors.
As such, it will be interesting to see what it brings to market in the coming weeks, not only with these two machines, but with its full 2017 lineup.
