Add a Termignoni to the Ducati Scrambler, Chase the Hipster Factor Forever

A Termignoni exhaust is Ducati Scrambler's best friend 1 photo

There are a lot of guys who say that Ducati’s all-new Scrambler is nothing but another motorcycles for hipsters, tame and cozy, with little-to-none-at-all of the mean vibe Borgo Panigale’s bikes are famous for. Now, truth is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and what looks ugly to some might be the epitome of sweetness to others, so whether you like the Ducati Scrambler or not is a matter of personal preference.
We had a close encounter with these bikes on two occasions, in Paris and at EICMA 2014. They surely look nice and neat, and if you’re not the pickiest of riders, they’ll pass the desirability test with flying colors.

If you’re more of a luxury-focused type of rider, the Scrambler might not live up to your expectations as Ducati has not built it with the same materials and care for details as a 1299 Panigale, Diavel or Multistrada. Still, since Bologna is expecting the Scrambler to see the rough side of riding, too, maybe a two-wheeled jewel was not exactly the best idea.

The Monster engine can sound menacing

What may look like an almost girly bike can in fact produce a sound which strikes both fear and admiration in the hearts of the passers-by. That is, if you decide to ditch the stock exhaust and replace it with a Termignoni, which is exactly what the guys in the video below did.

Needless to say, adding a Termignoni silencer to the 803cc air/oil-cooled L-twin engine is a massive game-changer and opens up a whole new perspective on the Scrambler. While the standard tone of the Ducati Scrambler sounds rather common, impersonal and almost dull, it appears like equipping yours with an aftermarket exhaust is the shortest way to add an overdose of manly grunt to this bike.

Honestly, Ducati should consider this exhaust as the standard trim for all the four Scrambler versions. Seriously.
