Ducati Scrambler Spied Again, Better Photo This Time

Here's a new, better photo of the Ducati Scrambler, brought to surface by In Sella. The bike looks like far from being ready for the next month's EICMA bike show in Milan, Italy.

However, this spay photo shows much more thant he previous ones, and we can see that Ducati went for a low-swung short exhausts, which is not exactly scrambler-esque, at least not judged by the actual standards.

The line of the bike is modern and aggressive and it retains much of the traditional character of the brand. The passenger sear is rather mocking two-up riding, but as a solo machine, the bike looks lovely. Also, the tank might not hold too much gas and this might be a drawback for longer rides.

So far with a laced, single rotor front wheel and a cast one in the rear leaves both options open though a bike meant for riding on rough terrain should definitely have laced wheels.

Still no hint on the engine: will it be the old mill on the Monster 796 or the new 1100 twin? The price is rumored to make it one of the mos affordable Ducati, but it's still hard to see a new Borgo Panigale machine with a price tag under €8,000 ($11,000) ad therefore a worthy competitor for Triumph or Moto Guzzi.

Via InSella.
