In the early 1960s manufacturers modified street bikes for off-road use and called them scramblers. They were the predecessors of modern dirt bikes. Motorcycles have come a long way since then, and the 2015 Ducati Scrambler is more of a retro styling exercise than an actual off-road bike.
Scramblers have seen a resurgence in recent years, with renewed interest coming from younger, hipper riders. The Ducati Scrambler captures the essence of those original trail bikes; it’s minimalist, it’s svelte, and with a variety of Ducati accessories, it is customisable. In other words, it’s the perfect hipster fit.
It uses Ducati’s venerable 803 cc V-twin, and it’s affordable, starting at $9,299. It comes in four styling variations: the Icon, the Classic, the Urban Enduro and the Full Throttle.
The Ducati Scrambler is a refreshing approach that is meant to be fun to look and fun to ride, and it should entice many riders, hip or otherwise.
