Among the new bikes is a Scrambler Icon Dark the new entry level 803cc model. It will be €800 cheaper which should mean at least $A1000 off the current price of $A13,990.
It features a matt black frame, black engine with polished fin ends, black seat with grey trim and round black mirrors.
Claudio also presented two styling department drawings of a Motard version and a Desert X racer.
He says their styling department was asked to create “something unprecedented but entirely possible”.
The results are these concepts shown at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan.
The Motard will be based on the 803cc Scrambler.
“This is a bike we are working on right now,” says Claudio, so a production version can’t be far away.
Desert X Scrambler
The Desert X is based on the 1100cc Scrambler and celebrates the 1990 Paris-Dakar Rally victory by Italian rider Edi Orioli on the Ducati-powered Cagiva Elefant. That bike is in now in Ducati’s museum above their Bologna factory.
