Oberdan Bezzi has clearly been dreaming about Ducati entering the off-road/mixed terrain market recently. The Italian designer has already come out with a Ducati dirtbike and Ducati supermoto, and now adds to that collection with a Ducati scrambler, dubbed the Desmoscrambler.

Out of all three of these sketches, we have to say the scrambler option seems the most fitting for the Italian brand. Not only is the scambler segment heating up, but the retro meets modern approach fits well with the Ducati brand…not too mention the bike is more street oriented. So what do you think? Can you see a Bologna-based scrambler tickling your Italian desire?

    I hope that’s the last one, I was getting tired of the “Desmo” portmanteaus…

    Hey, this looks quite good ! – though not as good as Triumph’s interpretation of the Scrambler (and this comes from a Ducati fan an owner). Then again, PLEASE remove that headlight. It has killed the Monster, do not carry it on other models… just please

    I’m not sure of the execution, but I like the overall idea. I would probably slot in the smaller 2 valve twin for R&D simplicity rather than develop a new liquid cooled, 4-valve motor.

    Why not use the Supermono engine in the frame.
