Just days after Ducati revealed a teaser video and picture of the new Scrambler, the internet has been flooded with spy pictures and videos of the motorcycle being tested. The latest pictures show the Scrambler being tested in Ducati’s factory in Borgo Panigale, Italy while a video shows the motorcycle undergoing load testing.
The spy pictures show the Scrambler painted in a yellow livery with chrome inserts on the tank and engine case. The motorcycle does resemble closely to the official pictures and has similar layout for the tank, seat, swingarm and wheels.
The bike will be built around a trellis frame with low exhaust pipe, a short tail and rear grab handles. With a low and short stance, a high set handlebar and retro styling, the new motorcycle reminds us of the small-capacity Ducati Scramblers of 60s and early 70s.
Speculations suggest that the Scrambler will be offered with a range of customisable options which includes a rear tyre hugger, a different type of rear end and saddles. The Scrambler will break cover at the 2014 World Ducati Week, this July and will go on sale in Europe around early 2015. By that time, we expect Triumph to be ready with its own range of small capacity motorcycle.
