A retro-inspired refresh of the Scrambler Icon that was reintroduced in 2014. It is a beginner friendly, middleweight motorcycle that is great for everyday riding and short road trips. This model gets refinements to its suspension, power delivery, ride, and safety tech.
THE BEST Ducati
An accessible off-roader. The Desert Sled has the same 803cc 75hp engine found in all Scramblers, but it’s surrounded by all new parts, including longer forks and suspension, a reinforced frame and Pirelli tires custom made for the bike. Drops 3/2017 for about $11,400.
Ducati’s entry-level sportbike has a 113hp 937cc engine based on the Hypermotard’s core. Its frame is similar to the Panigale’s but has a more comfortable riding stance. It also has three riding modes, an adjustable windscreen and adjustable suspension. More here.
Jay Leno checks out Untitled Motorcycles’ barebones variant of Ducati’s entry-level bike. The UMC-038 has been stripped down to its bare essentials, along with a custom tank, seat, rear subframe, a Ducati Monster swingarm and a modded QD box exhaust. Test drive at 11:10.
Iron Pirate Garage turned the top-heavy Ducati Supersport 750 into a visually balanced post-apocalyptic bobber. The Kraken’s custom made rear subframe, tank, horizontal exhausts and more. The yellow stripe is a nice visual break and homage to the 750 Imola.
Jay Leno’s Garage gets a look at Ducati’s first ever cruiser. It has an L-twin that produces up to 156hp and 95lbft of torque. Jay found its feet-forward stance and handlebar position to be very comfortable, and the bike itself to be nimble and versatile. Test ride at 13:33.
