Today, Ducati announced they’re planning to release the Scrambler in 2015, and that they’ve put together a website documenting the ongoing project (check it out at ScramblerDucati.com). They’ve even given their employees a sneak peek at the project.
The company says they’ll unveil the bike this fall (we’re guessing we’ll see it around EICMA). It’s supposed to be a modern interpretation of the company’s original Scrambler from the ’60s and ’70s. Their press release says the machine will “represent the perfect combination of the traditional and contemporary, while returning to the pure essence of motorcycling – two wheels, wide handlebars, a simple engine and a lot of fun.” Maybe we’ll see another air-cooled Ducati? We’re guessing pollution controls mean no, but it’s possible.
Ducati released two official teaser shots; the first shows employees lined up, waiting to catch a glimpse of the machine in a container (they weren’t allowed to take smartphone snaps, either). The second shows the bike from the front, seemingly hinting the Scrambler has an LED headlight and a massive speedometer … and that’s about it.
