However, Ducati has also ensured the bike is practical and interchangeable with plenty of clever accessories and riding gear to match the fun mood.
The first shipment of the Ducati Scrambler is due to arrive in Australia in March 2015. Scrambler prices are:
Icon (Ducati Red) $12,990
Icon (’62 Yellow) $13,140
Urban Enduro $14,990
Full Throttle $14,990
The first model available will be the Icon. There is no date yet for the other variants.
That’s pretty good value for a fun little weekend warrior that you can play with on the dirt or the tar, then take to work from Monday to Friday.
But with the innovative luggage you can also take it touring and still retain much of its style with its range of waterproof and classic style saddlebags, rear seat bag and magnetic tank bags.
Even though there are four Scrambler models, you can conceivably make hundreds of variations with a bit of swapping and changing among the multitude of bike accessories.
However, instead of calling them bike accessories, Ducati calls them “ingredients”. They allow users to “scramble” their Scrambler with different tank side panels, mudguards, plate holder, headlamp rim and grille, instrument panel rim, grips, mirrors, wheels, handlebars and crossbars, and four different seats.
There are also Termignoni exhausts that include a high-rise scrambler-style pipe and shorty twin pipes that change the look even more.
And, of course, you can also dress up in all the hipster Scrambler riding and leisure apparel which comes in three different lines (Urban, Outdoor and Lifestyle) for men and women.
The Urban and Outdoor lines are riding gear with different styles from helmet down to boots.
The Urban line is typified by the Quattrotasche (four pockets) jacket made by Dainese with Pro Shape protectors and the Outdoor line by the Outdoor jacket with removable camouflage lining and type-approved soft protectors.
The Lifestyle leisure wear includes T-shirts, fleeces, trucker caps, belts, watches and even a water bottle.
Meanwhile, Australian delivery of the new Multistrada with Desmodromic Variable (DVT) timing is scheduled for late May, the Diavel Titanium arrives by April and the Panigale R arrives in late April.
