Default HD Streets don't have a chance....

...against the new Ducati Scrambler....
More power, real brakes, more style, more comfortable, better quality and versatility, ....same price. The Scrambler makes the Street look like a cheap toy by comparison.

The most expensive Street is 7500.....the least expensive Scrambler is 8500.....

I don't see them being cross shopped though.

Scrambler=retro cool, Street=urban blah.

right up to the point you need to have it worked on or repaired.. if you are lucky enough to be someplace that supports ducati's then you are set. if you are someplace that doesn't good luck.
i have had 2 monsters in my previous stables. one was crushed when some lady put it in reverse instead of drive and backed up over it.. the last was an S2R which was a great bike but services started at $500 for even a basic service, and that was when you could get it in. closest dealers to me are around 2-3 hours in any direction and it never was back in a timely manner...
don't get me wrong, i would love another monster or a diavel but with a lack of support, ducati is just not in the cards...
plus the other thing i was thinking when i watched the video is they have already made a couple bikes like this before.. not quite the same look, but similar in purpose - the multistrada and the hypermotard. definitely cool nontheless, but i hope it does better than the GT1000 series..

you got your jesus on the dashboard, the devil's under my hood. you're takin' down to legal, i'm pulling it up to no good.
god is your co-pilot, i let satan ride shotgun, you pay a toll to get to heaven, but on the road to hell there's none..... \m/ \m/

That thing looks like something you'd find in a yard sale. It actually made me grin with amusement that they would actually bring something like that into production. I was expecting something beautiful with big power.

Yup. Reminds me of my first bike from the 70s

1972 Suzuki TC 90

2015 Ducati Scrambler

New one appears to have better brakes.

Anyway, from what I've read, that's just what they were going for. Hipsters and Baby Boomers like nostalgia. Hell, I see copies of the old lid I used to wear back then and others very similar, quite frequently these days.

It's 75HP with a 410 pound wet weight....1HP per 5.5 pounds.

Your XCT is 100HP and 850 pounds...1HP per 8.5 pounds.

One is LEAVING the other.
