Spy shots: Ducati Scrambler spotted

Ducati keeps to its air-cooled roots

SPY shots have emerged of Ducati’s new Scrambler leaving the Bologna factory in Italy.

The Scrambler is believed to use a version of the Monster 796 air-cooled engine which produces 84hp and 58lb-ft of torque.

The bike is expected to go on sale in 2015 and will feature an all-new frame, all-new swing arm and styling that insiders say will be inspired by the original Scrambler of the 60s.

The bike will have tall bars and a thin dirt bike style tank. Unlike the heavily-disguised Scrambler prototype pictured, expect to see semi-knobbly tyres and a more complete headlight fitted to the production version.
