After much teasing and tantalising over the last few years and having showcased the bike to a special selection of employees and enthusiasts at the World Ducati Week 2014, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer unveiled the Scrambler at the 2014 Intermot in Cologne, Germany.
The Scrambler is a universally used term for bikes capable of crossing trails and fire roads while being completely street legal. Ducati's take on this style of motorcycle comes in four variants - Icon, Urban Enduro, Full Throttle and Classic. All four trims are powered by an oil cooled L-twin two-valve 803cc engine. Scroll down to get a good look at the motorcycles.
The Scrambler Icon comes in a choice of two colours - this one is called 62 Yellow . . .
. . . and this, the Ducati Red
The Scrambler gets Pirelli Enduro tyres as standard
The aluminium spoke wheels are 18 inches in diameter up front and 17 inches at the rear
ABS comes as standard fitment on all Scramblers
The Urban Enduro model comes in Wild Green with a black frame and brown seat
The Urban Enduro also gets a high mounted plastic mud guard
All Scramblers get under seat storage with a USB socket
Fork protectors and a headlamp grille add to the macho persona
The Full Throttle variant comes in this Deep Black with a black frame and a black seat to match
