That's Not a Bike, This Is a Bike

I haven't bought a new Duc or used for that matter, since 2011 when I picked up my Multistrada. Had a 2007 749 S and a 2008 848 with track-plastic/stock plastic for track days.
When I saw this new Scrambler being touted by my Ducati dealer, I thought it was so cool. It was a Ride Day, so I jumped on one. 1 mile down the road, I was sold. Got back to the dealer, and he convinced me to demo their newest Icon Electric Bike...I was very impressed in many ways. I told him I'd be a buyer, BUT I had to get the Scrambler first...thus the thread title.
2 of my boys had bought Triumph Scramblers, so I thought old Dad could slip in there with them on open face helmet rides and be old school cool. It's been a joy plus ever since June 2015. I'm stoked !

I really like it too. I might pickup a low mileage used one when they hit the used market. I've picked up three great Ducati's waiting for the major service to come due.
I like the yellow the best too.
Good luck!

Can't agree more, they are cool. Going to add one to the stable next year as my urban bike. Plus a little more compatible when riding with my wife on her Harley street 500. I just wondering how long it will take her to trade up after she rides the scrambler with a years worth of experience under her belt.

I'm seeing a bunch of really cool customizations for them, too.

I really dig this setup.

Congrats on the new ride.

Scramblers are a blast to ride. Ducati really has a great line up right now.

1999 Monster 900
2004 Monster 620

Both gone, but not forgotten.

The 1100 is going to be a blast! And with Ohlins fron and rear.... WHAT?! I would have rather it come with a dry clutch to really make a comeback but it will be a classic with those goodies.

I have a Diavel and a Multi, but I typically take the Scrambler for my 12 mile back road commute. It's just so much fun to ride a small bike fast.

Sorry, it just makes me cringe at the mention of wearing open face helmets because of fashion. Cool? Smashing your face into the pavement is not gonna be cool.
Good luck
