Ducati Scrambler. A name from the ages. The youngest would think that Bologna is attacking its own interpretation of this type of machine, ancestor of trail running. Those with a little more bottle will remember the first Scramblers of the company, when it manufactured single cylinders.. It was the 60s, the Scramblers existed in 250, 350 and even 450 from 1969. They felt the music, the carefree, the fun, the Beatles, the jeans, the dreadful orange color of the time….

We take the same sauce and start again to acidify the second chapter of the 21st century. Except that we fired the emetic orange, that Coldplay and Daft Punk fill the charts; but the new Scrambler always smacks of fun, pleasure, and above all, from near and far, it looks super nice and we immediately want to become a friend. A motorcycle as a friend, the Scrambler?!? Ducati has however accustomed us to muscle, especially for some time. Sports cars of 200 nags, Diavel to graze the road, a trail as powerful as a 750 GSX-R, Monsters that run at 115 hp minimum…
Yes, but in all this, it lacked a funny and accessible device. The place had been vacant since the 696 Monster had cleared the catalog. So, a Scrambler with a holiday look, not too powerful and accessible, it really feels good.

Isn’t this Ducati 800 Scrambler cute?!? Almost looks like a TW, but a little bigger. It is not stretched out like a Streetfighter, rather compact in its proportions, not in pursuit of a pure, high fashion style like MV-Agusta. No, he’s just cute. And yet, the stroke of the pencil has not been idle to make it endearing. Yes, it’s vintage, and that’s part of why we notice it. He claims to be the offspring and evolution of the Scrambler of the hippie years. Technically, we oscillate between the proven and the modern. One brake disc? Yes, it’s lighter visually, but it’s more than enough to calm this 170-kilo beast: a 330 mm disc pinched by a monobloc 4-piston caliper, and a Bosch 9.1 MP ABS, it’s already causing . Another 254mm disc with a single-piston caliper is present at the rear.

How about a Scrambler? It’s not really made for … No, it’s made for fun. So Ducati put in a few horses, but not too much. First, recover the 803 cm3 twin of fire the 796 Monster and Hypermotard, we keep the 2 valves per cylinder, the desmo system, we change the camshafts, and we distribute 75 horsepower at 8250 rpm. Torque, we will do with 6.9 mkg, at 5750 rpm. Not huge, almost correct for the cubic capacity, and in the end, we won’t need more. To avoid spoiling anything, we appreciate the attention to detail, such as the designs machined in the aluminum of the crankcases and belt covers..

The trellis frame is de rigueur as usual. Discreet, minimalist, it supports the saddle at a very accessible 790 mm high, holds a 41 mm inverted fork, a banana-type swingarm, and 10-spoke rims on each side.
This is not what will appeal the most. Quidams, curious and charmed will especially see this tank, taking again feature for feature the shape of that of the Scrambler of yesteryear. The brushed aluminum covers are interchangeable, in order to multiply the customizations and to keep the marketing machine running at full speed. Ducat ‘has planned a whole universe around its new toy, to the free appreciation of each one.
The 800 Scrambler also plays with a certain impertinence and remarkable specificities. Let us quote the inscription “born in 1962” on the tank, the tires with large cobblestones type enduro manufactured exclusively for him, an 18-inch rim at the rear, a thin gommard of 110 at the bow while the stern reveals a large 180, 150 mm travel suspensions allowing you to venture into the paths leading to the beach.

From a distance, it seems classic this round headlight and this minimalist instrumentation with a single eccentric meter. Someone turns on the ignition. The Scrambler then unveils its light signature. Four arcs form an immediately identifiable circle. Suddenly, we approach to find out more. The dashboard is indeed a simple dial, but everything is digital in it. The displayed speed has chosen the best visibility. The plan will have to be satisfied with a few bars displayed at the bottom edge..

The Scrambler becomes the entry model to the Ducati range, a little more in its 400 Sixty2 version. And maybe the most fun too. Good boils, a reference to the past full of style, old-fashioned engine (desmo 2 valves cooled by air), it smells of holidays, walks and aperitifs.
Only one desire comes at the end of the handlebars: fun. Far from the glitter, the bleeding trajectories, the frightening powers and the “always more”, the Ducati Scrambler brings a real breath of fresh air and that simple little taste that it is more and more difficult to find. Except that when your name is Ducati, the simple mixes with the premium, and this affects the price. We used to camp for the holidays; now we take a mobile home. But the desire for the beach has not changed.
