The Scrambler made its global debut at the INTERMOT 2014 in Cologne, Germany, in September last year. The motorcycle will appeal to “non-conformists” according to the company with its neo-retro styling.

And speaking of styling, the Scrambler’s minimalistic design features a classic, circular headlight with a LED outline, a single-sided rear mudguard, an eccentric instrument dial and a floating seat. The motorcycle rests on a twin-spar steel trellis structure and gets Kayaba inverted telescopic forks up front and an offset monoshock for the rear.

The 803 cc L-twin motor makes 75 PS and 67.7 Nm of torque, and is paired to a 6-speed transmission via a slipper clutch. Ducati claims a dry kerb weight of 170 kg. Stopping power comes from a 330 mm disc up front and a 245 mm disc at the rear with two-channel ABS as standard. Ducati offers Pirelli tyres as standard.
