Quite pretty but not a nice little Honda.

A bit on the ugly side IMHO

Not tempted by this, looks like a gimmick to tempt sunny day riders.
Sorry but the budget restraints on this build dont make this a serious bike in my opinion, nearly there but lacking

Seen one in real life and also saw it at bike show recently and cannot think of any reason I would buy one! Think you would seriously have to be into ducati's to even consider it. I'm not saying I don't like the idea of it or even its looks but so many other bikes would come before this.

I agree with Nick. Had a good look at these at the bike show and didn't like them at all.

I love it, but 7k wow way to much!
Especially if you wanted to mod it another 1-2k, 2nd hand why not.

Like so many new models, it looks like a lifestyle accessory aimed at those with an excess of immaculately-groomed facial hair, neck tattoos and an encyclopaedic knowledge of obscure coffee beans.

According to fast bikes magazine the scrambler has been one of Ducatis best selling models in recent times and they are even realising a 310cc version for A2 license holders.

I wouldn't buy one, I don't think they look bad or ought but it doesn't give me the fizz.
