Ducati Scrambler range set to grow, Triumph the target?

We were expecting the Ducati Streetfighter V4, Ducati 959 Panigale V2 and the Ducati Multistrada but now there are also two new Ducati Scramblers on the way too

Ducati Scrambler range set to grow, Triumph the target?

Two more Ducati Scrambler variants are on the way, according to EPA documents filed in the United States which reveal the Italian manufacturer has been very busy behind the scenes in preparation for its new model blitz.

Whilst there has been a lot of focus on the Ducati Streetfighter V4, the ‘baby Panigale 959 and the updated Multistrada 1260 – not to mention a lot of spy shots over the past few weeks – it is the Ducati Scrambler that brings in the biggest sales now -= 55,000 worldwide annually to be exact.

Whilst there is already a large choice available to us – the Icon, Desert Sled, Café Racer, Sixty2, Full Throttle, 1100, 1100 Sport and 1100 Special - the EPA documents reveal a Ducati Scrambler 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport Pro have been added to the 2020 Ducati model range.

Ducati targeting Triumph with Scrambler update?

With identical power figures to its 1100 siblings, it’s not clear how the Pro and Sport Pro will differentiate from the range, but more focused underpinnings with suspension and brakes upgrades would seem the logical guess as it would put it more directly into range with the Triumph Scrambler 1200.

The bikes are almost certainly going to make their bow on October 23rd – officially at least – when Ducati reveals its 2020 model range in a special livestream before we get to have a proper poke around at EICMA a couple of weeks later on November 5.

Seems Ducati is going to have a lot to present come October...
