Ducati Teases New 2015 ScramblerMon, 09 Jun 2014 00:00:00 -0700
Ducati officially confirmed it is launching a new Scrambler model for 2015. Ducati gave its factory workers in Bologna a sneak peak of the new Scrambler prototype, but the rest of us will have to settle for the teaser image above and a video.
We’ve been waiting for Ducati to reveal its new Scrambler ever since the company registered for the trademark in April 2013. We were hoping to see it at EICMA last year but disappointed when the Scrambler was a no-show. Ducati says the Scrambler will be available in early 2015 but will debut this fall either at this year’s EICMA in Italy or perhaps Intermot in Germany.
The new Scrambler is a modern interpretation of the original Ducati Scramblers sold in the ’60s and ’70s. The video shows several images from the original model’s heyday, interspersed with a few teaser images of the new model.
While the original Scrambler used small-displacement single-cylinder engines, the new Scrambler will almost assuredly use a 90-degree V-Twin engine. A brief glimpse of cooling fins in the video suggests an air-cooled engine, likely inherited from the Monster line.
Ducati has launched a new website (http://scramblerducati.com/) where it will slowly reveal more information about the Scrambler in the months to come.
