Want a Ducati Scrambler? Canadian buyers might have a bit of a wait, because according to a Ducati insider, they’re sold out here already. Take heart, though! You will be able to buy a Scrambler if you want one this summer, you’ll just have to wait for availability on the 2016 model. We understand they’ll be available in July … so that gives you a few weeks of riding before the snow starts again in September :).
Although it’s the most economical entry in the Ducati lineup, the company seems to have their fortunes staked on this model; at last weekend’s show in Moncton, the four versions of the Scrambler took up about as much space as the rest of Ducati’s lineup, and held as much floor space (or more!) than two other Japanese manufacturers and two other Euro manufacturers.
In recent years, bikes like the Yamaha Bolt, the Royal Enfield Continental GT and now the Scrambler have sold in great numbers in Canada. Despite all the talk about growth in adventure riding, it seems classic, retro-inspired designs are doing pretty well these days too.
