I think I like it! Looks somewhat like the traditional old ones.
Looks like one of those Honda monkey bikes.
Here is an original one. Looks like the new ones have much more motor!
I'm a bit conflicted about the new bike, it doesn't look too bad but Ducati Scramblers are meant to be singles
vtr250 for grown ups!
Thats horrible,1000% better was the Hyprermotad at the Sydney Ducati Concorse with the Olive green paint job and Nobby tyres.It got heaps of comments,must have been a custum job but looked factory made.Would make a great Adventure Bike.There are pics of it in the Advernture Rider thread called
With fuel range of 150km, it wouldn't be a very far adventure. Should be fine to the local cafe though.
The same was said about that very expensive Mick Halwood Rep,till a replacement larger tank was made in California.Same for just about every 450 endro bike before they get modded for The Dakar.Not to mention those underseat accessory tanks for some big twin KTMs,or those nomad tanks that mount on the rear guard of endro bikes that get ridden more than 100ks on a trail ride,fuel proof soft bladders available etc etc.There is a fix for anything.
I'm having mixed reactions.
Sort of like parts of it and sort of don't like some other parts. Will have to wait and see. Would be interesting to see the Australian pricing as well.
I prefer the looks of the new Monster 821 though. That's one good looking bike. Along with the Panigales.
The machines will go on sale in early 2015, at the following prices:
ICON (Ducati Red) $12,990
ICON (’62 Yellow) $13,140
URBAN ENDURO $14,990
FULL THROTTLE $14,990
Plus dealer costs plus statutory charges plus other costs?? Or are these ride away prices?
No, not ride away!
It still seems like a bargain though when you compare it to BMW's Nine T, because I'm pretty sure people will be cross shopping these bikes.
Looking at the tank size and the "fuely" data from the donor bike I get a 250km range. "Adventure bike" ergonomics have been popular with people not adventuring for a fair while, I actually like that this one doesn't have a beak.
yeah, that is ugly
Every other time I've seen a Ducati price published on Bikesales it hasn't included onroads. If that's the case for the Scrambler then its pricing is way off the charts, especially considering they'll be coming in from Thailand.
Anybody heard what cc it is?
