75 Pics of the 2015 Ducati Scrambler and It Doesn't Look Bad at All

Well, the wait is over, as Ducati has finally unveiled its newest addition to the entry-point bike line-up, the Scrambler. I have to be honest and admit I kind of like this bike, as the high-res photos do indeed show a neat, stylish machine, infinitely better-looking than we all could see in the spy shots and videos which preceded its launch.

What appeared to be a flimsy, loose and unworthy motorcycle turns out to be a compact, well-designed, and apparently very fun to ride bike which could definitely draw in more than hipsters. Still, the new Ducati Scrambler manages to pack in two major things: a vibe which harks back to the retro machines of yore and the modern attire of a fashionable, yet dead-serious bike. And since the prices are also on the decent side, the Scrambler might just be a really successful two-wheeler.Monster power
The Ducati Scrambler is equipped with the air-oil-cooled L-twin 803cc mill of the Monster 796, which has undergone some tweaking to make is more linear and manageable both on the street and in the dirt. Fuel is derived by a 50mm throttle body with sub-butterfly injectors, with the pistons and the crankshaft unchanged from the Monster 796 and the Hypermotard, but with the camshafts updated to the requirements of the 11° valve overlap angle of the Desmodue.

A wet APTC (Adler Power Torque Plate Clutch) slipper, self-servo clutch interfaces the engine and the 6-speed gearbox and allows the rider to make better use of the 75 hp @ 8,250 revs and 50.2 lb-ft (68.1 Nm) of torque the Scrambler produces at 5,750 rpm.

Kayaba supplies the 41mm upside-down fork and monoshock, both adjustable and offering 150mm of travel for great compliance with riding on rough roads. Still, the 10-spoke cast wheel Scrambler must be treated with kindness, as it will definitely not last long if you’re more on the off-road side of scrambling. The other three versions have all-fun, wire-spoked wheels which can take more abuse.

The Scrambler is also offered with 2-channel Bosch ABS and Brembo brakes, with a monoblock, radial-mount unit in the front.
