2015 Ducati Scrambler Classic on http://www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Ducati Scrambler isn’t just a bike, it’s a world...

The Classic is for riders who want 1970s styling and details plus the pure riding pleasure and practicality of a modern bike. With its metal mudguards, traditional plate holder, and spoked wheels (the same size as the alloy ones, 3 x 18 at the front and 5.5 x 17 at the rear) this is, perhaps, the version that embodies the essence of motorcycling more than any other. The Scrambler Classic logo is the one that most resembles its 1970s counterpart, perfectly matching the "Orange Sunshine" of the tank which, just like the original
Scrambler, features a central black stripe. Lastly, the retro flavour of the Scrambler Classic is enhanced even further by the lozenge-patterned stitching on the brown seat.

The Classic version is aimed at those who appreciate attention to detail and 1970s style, but who don’t want to compromise on riding pleasure and the functionality of a modern bike. It is characterised by unique, refined details, such as the aluminium front and rear mudguards, the spoke wheels and the brown seat with diamond-shaped inserts. In Orange Sunshine.

The wait is over at last. The Ducati Scrambler is finally out of the yellow container that has so jealously guarded it over the last few months and is now – after the previews granted to employees and Ducatisti at World Ducati Week 2014 - officially ready to be revealed to all enthusiasts. This is more than just a new bike: it’s a whole new world, one that expresses itself via a range of versions that provide a starting point for satisfying the different needs and wants of individual motorcyclists

Indeed it does look like a ... shall I coin the term? Retro UMJ? :)

But a really nice design. I was a little biased in choosing the Scrambler Classic as I thought the Classic looked the best, but the other 3 models are really nice too TBH.

Not sure why Ducati choose to bring out the Scrambler now, you would have thought they missed the boat on the naked-retro years ago, but it's nice to see a proper "naked" Ducati now that the Ducati Monsters looks "less naked" and more modern than ever before.

But I'm a little disappointed in Ducati's new "cheap" direction of double sided swing arms (not that this one should have one but..), and I would guess as there isn't much too the Scrambler it should be Ducati's cheapest model.

Wow, that was much longer of a post than I originally intended...lol.

nice looking bike, but the muffler is a bit too low down for a true scrambler.
Always ask why.

Funny enough as you mention it I noticed that as well... I guess it's not a "true scrambler" like the Triumph Scrambler, but something of a dual-scrambler... More road than dirt?

I think this will very likely be my next bike. Simple, basic, versatile, comfortable, looks like a lot of fun. Competent enough for the gravel/fire roads I enjoy riding. Could do with a high pipe option though, but I'll bet that'll be available soon.

1970 Ducati 350 Scrambler...so I guess indeed it's pretty close to the original then.

I finally decided to go: Cool (a very cool), but I reserve the right to change it to awesome/uncool based on when the price is released.

It's really nice to see Ducati again manufacturer true naked bikes. I remember the Ducati Monster was a naked bike, then Ducati started to make them more and more complex, adding more to them till they are not so naked today (if you know what I mean). The Ducati Scrambler returns Ducati back to it's roots and to simplicity, which in my books, is very attractive. Personally I don't want a bike with the function and features of a Samsung Galaxy 6s, I just want to ride and have the bike focus on that pure aspect.

The one designy thing about the new Scrambler I that really bothers me (and I'd change right away) would be the single instrument gauge off-set to the right. It's unfortunately partially covered up by the handlebars and looks really out of place (to me). I'd be paying to have it relocated to a more middle position and add a 2nd (tach) if possible.

But overall, I really do hope the new Ducati Scrambler is the lowest priced in the Ducati line up so they sell.

I totally agree. With the Scrambler's retro appeal, I was hoping they'd have analog clocks. I guess a one-piece LED unit without moving parts is cheaper to manufacture? Even then, I wish the unit was "flipped" 180 degrees; tach on the upper half, going the more conventional way round (left to right), then speed, and finally the more minor readouts (tempt, clock, etc.) on the bottom half of the gauge. And centered, of course.

Very nice image there. :)

Yes, it's definitely way too "techie" for a retro 70s style bike... It's really, really hard to improve upon the double analog/needle clock design for a retro or standard bike. I've seen so many of the techie tachs (lol, good word) that they become "tacky techie tachs".

2015 Ducati Scrambler Classic - Coolness Factor = 76.7%
Featured: October 10th, 2014 - October 17th, 2014
Most popular vote category: Cool

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=50145
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... lassic.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Ducati Scrambler Classic is:

Awesome (3 points) 44% [ 19 ]
Cool (2 points) 47% [ 20 ]
Uncool (1 point) 5% [ 2 ]
Fail (0 point) 5% [ 2 ]


Total votes : 43


= a Coolwall Factor of 76.7%

NOTES: I like the comment "Simple, basic, versatile, comfortable, looks like a lot of fun" Grey Thumper left but like many, I'd like to see less "tacky tech" and more retro style, especially in the gauge/clock area and with the muffler design. But overall, here is hoping for Ducati's true naked bike to be successful. A score of 76% is nothing to be ashamed at and I'm sure aftermarket goodies will fix this bike up nicely.

Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!
