If loving today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe CJ8 is wrong then I don’t want to be right. That’s because it’s right-hand drive and one of only about 230 built. Let’s see if that and its condition will make paying its asking price the right thing to do.
The second model from the Scrambler Ducati line is making its way stateside, and I spent a day romping all over Venice, California so I could tell you about it. Photos are being edited and the review is on the way, so get your questions in now.
One of the coolest things about the motorcycle industry is the people you meet in it. For most of them, motorcycling isn’t a job, it’s a way of life, and something that they live out even when they clock out. Heath Cofran, who’s a communications pro for gearmaker Alpinestars, is one of the guys, and his Ducati…
Unfortunately, the nice folks at MotoCorsa’s Hello Scrambler didn’t make it to the finals to represent the U.S. in the Scrambler Ducati Custom Rumble bike build contest, but here are the bikes that did. All of them are pretty badass, some more than others.
Ducati felt like they launched something for everyone when they released the Scrambler Ducati line last year. Suprisingly, the one thing they missed was a low-key cafe option. Luckily, Italian fashion brand Italia Independent came to the rescue.
The Bimota Tesi 3D RaceCafe definitely takes the prize for the “most special” bike released at the EICMA show in Milan. I still can’t decide if I’d be proud or ashamed to call this thing my own, but I do know I definitely need to ride it.
If you thought this year was a fun bike launch/EICMA season, wait til you see what’s coming for 2017. Kawasaki just declared they have 12 bikes coming over the next two years, we should see more forced induction things, KTM better bring me my 800 cc twins, and Husqvarna confirmed the 401 Vitpilen is on the way. The…
On the one hand, the idea that Ducati thinks people are so dumb that they can’t tracker-ize the regular Scrambler is pretty insulting. On the other hand, this Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro is pretty damn cool. This one got lost in the new bike fray of EICMA a bit, but is well worth taking a gander at.
Today, the term “Scrambler” means a retro/classic looking motorcycle that’s been given higher bars, off-road tires, and exhaust that looks cool but will likely burn your leg. And, quite honestly, there isn’t anything wrong with that. However, it used to mean something entirely different.
You know what I do when I need to take a quick break from writing about motorcycles? I sit back and scroll through Instagram pics of motorcycles. Chances are, you do the same, so here are some accounts you should make sure you’re following.
Moto Guzzi adds a touch of weird sophistication to every bike they make. It starts with that motor placement, and the individuality just seeps throughout. This year, they brought to EICMA what all the cool kids brought to EICMA – a Scrambler, but they also brought a heavy weight surprise.
Last week, we broke news that BMW released a scrambler version of their R nineT roadster. They officially uncovered the bike at EICMA in Milan, Italy today and we have more details and a ton of pretty pictures so you can start your day drooling.
Yamaha held a special unveiling in Hollywood, California today to pull the wraps off this: the 2016 Yamaha XSR900 - a stunning version of their FZ-09 naked sport bike.
BMW teased a R nineT scrambler earlier this year when they let Roland Sands put a surfboard and some higher bars on the Path 22 concept. This video shows the bike in production form, set for release next week.
An Italian site is claiming to have spy pics which confirm Ducati is about to release a 400 Scrambler. One of the best bikes of the year is about to get a little brother.
This Sunday, over 30,000 well-dressed gentlefolk from over 400 cities in 79 different countries will ride to help fund a cure for prostate cancer. If you have a cafe, scrambler, bobber, or just want an excuse to dress up and ride for a good cause, you should join them.
The reaction to reviews of the new Ducati Scrambler has been…mixed. I think that's partially because us journalists have failed to do it justice and partially because the bike is very misunderstood. So I figured I should take a few minutes and explain it for you.
The Ducati Scrambler comes in four flavors, but as I found out this week, there are no mechanical differences between them. It's the same engine, the same suspension, and the same frame holding it all together. And that means you can pull any bit from any bike to create your own. It's like a two-wheeled LEGO kit, so…
Ducati's latest superbike, the 1299, makes 205bhp. This new Scrambler makes 75. But, it's also the better bike for most people, most of the time. We spent yesterday riding it through the mountains so we can tell you why.
At some point the motorcycle industry forgot that bikes are supposed to be fun. They don't have to be overpowered enablers of natural selection or obscenely styled, over-priced midlife crisis machines or vapidly retro fashion trinkets. They just need to be fun. And the new Ducati Scrambler is exactly that.
