Ducati Scrambler Trademarked at the USPTO Ducati Scrambler render 635x400

Last month, Asphalt & Rubber broke the news that Ducati was working on a scrambler-style machine, appropriately named the Ducati Scrambler.

The machine is said to be similar in design to the one Pierre Terblanche inked while he was with the Bologna Brand, though reports and sources have varied on what sort of motor the new model would use in its final form.

Whether it be water or liquid-cooled, single or twin-cylindered, the 2014 Ducati Scrambler cometh, and A&R has the trademark application to prove it.

Registering the name “Ducati Scrambler” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Ducati Motor Holding has tipped its hand regarding the new hipster machine.

A lengthy trademark, he most important provision in the granted trademark is probably the following: “IC 012. US 019 021 023 031 035 044. G & S: Vehicles; apparatus for locomotion by land.”

However, it worth noting that Ducati has filed for the trademark to be valid over a variety of goods, including clothing, precious metals, paper products, photography, and even games (Settlers of Scrambler, anyone?).

We likely won’t have to wait long to see the Scrambler in its final form, as the machine is expected to debut at the 2013 EICMA show in Milan, Italy. Stay tuned Ducatisti.

  1. Not Sure says:

    Hopefully it won’t have those garbage plastic gas tanks that swell from ethanol in our gas. Thanks US Govt for the shitty gas and thanks Ducati for the shitty gas tanks on most of your models!

  2. TRL says:

    But ethanol is good for our energy independence and the environment and without it the unicorns would die! I know because my government told me so!

  3. Smitchell says:

    Looks pretty, would need to be air cooled otherwise its not in the spirit of a scrambler. +1 on the gas tanks, it happened to me, was replaced for free to their credit, but with a smaller tank made of the same material, to their discredit.

  4. kww says:

    what a wonderful world it would be, if it was a supermono – even if it was 20 years late…

  5. Doctor Jelly says:

    @kww
    20 years just might make it retro cool again. Thumpers are still trending up in popularity right meow, maybe they’ll become popular enough for Duc to jump on the bandwagon again…

  6. Woody says:

    They’ll just put their 11ooDS engine in a monster frame with a new tank and seat, high mount exhaust, increase ride height a couple inches and put dualsport tires on it and call it a day.

  7. Wayne says:

    “Ducati Scambler”…..???

  8. paulus says:

    It shows that race reps are in full decline.
    Ducati range is ever expanding.

  9. Uh OH says:

    What’s next, a Ducati Goldwing?

  10. Monus says:

    “The machine is said to be similar in design to the one Pierre Terblanche”

    I thought that design became Moto Morini’s Corsaro/Scrambler.

  11. Pietro says:

    Larry Johnson: Excuse me, are you saying meow?

  12. johnc says:

    “The machine is said to be similar in design to the one Pierre Terblanche inked while he was with the Bologna Brand, though reports and sources have varied on what sort of motor the new model would use in its final form.”

    absolute bullshit statement … i saw the scrambler pierre was designing just prior to leaving ducati, and it looked NOTHING like the pic in this article. the scrambler terblanche designed was feking awesome.

  13. John, I know that you know that the photo at the top of the article is not the bike in question.

  14. Gritboy says:

    The Moto Morini Scrambler (http://tinyurl.com/lgdnlll) was (from a visual standpoint) my favorite scrambler to date, but hopefully Ducati puts out a sweet one of their own.

  15. Tom says:

    People want to blame the government for ethanol as though agribusiness lobbyists had nothing to do with it. I know this is a motorcycle site, but people should really get a clue about how companies like Monsanto are able to write laws and get subsidies for things like corn that have impacts ranging from GMOs to illegals crossing the border.

    The real elite buy the government, and make no mistake that corporations love big government, while the little people revel in being pawns in a genuine game of thrones fighting over “D” and “R” as though those labels matter to those on K Street who run things for their owners anyway.

  16. TRL says:

    @ Tom

    C’mon now aren’t you being a little hard? Monsanto and ADM have nothing but the best intentions, their PBS commercials tell me so…nothing but benevolent overlords…

  17. ZootCadiilac says:

    Don’t expect to see this in 2014. That’s all I’m saying for now :) There are some very exciting new models to be announced in the distant future ;)
