Are we ready for the Ducati Scrambler?  The latest entry into the flat tracker/scrambler throw backs is set for a January release and we like what we are seeing so far.

The engine is the air-cooled, desmodromic 803cc Monster 796 donk, but it’s had a hefty detune to produce a peak 75 horsepower (down from 87) and 50 lb-ft (68 Nm) of torque (down from 58). The Scrambler is also some 3 kg (6.6 lb) heavier than the Monster, but its final wet weight is still a svelte 186 kg (410 lb).

The scrambler body shape helps keep that light weight low, and the wide bars will make this a nimble puppy on the road; it should be a really fun bike. Its narrow waist and 770 mm (30 in) low seat option should make it fairly accessible to shorties, as well.

Retro it may be, but it carries a bunch of great modern touches: an LED light guide surrounds the front headlight and the tail is fully LED. The dash is fully digital, and there’s a built-in USB charger under the seat to keep your devices topped up.
