Ducati Scrambler 800 Overview
The Ducati Scrambler 800 is described as a bike for the free-spirited and it’s sleek and exciting style certainly look the part. The Scrambler 800 has been designed to be light and small making it easy to ride with a very user-friendly air-cooled V-twin engine which makes just the right amount of noise and gives out exactly the right level of power and torque. This is a great bike whether you are a newbie or a more experienced rider although the differing wheel sizes (18 inch at the front and 17 inch at the rear) does take a little adjustment to get used to.
One of the main benefits of the whole Ducati Scrambler range is that they offer superb value for money. Even the most basic model in this range, the Icon, doesn’t feel like a budget bike and you would certainly expect the Scrambler 800 to cost more than it does for what you get. New, you can expect to pay just under £7,000 for a Scrambler 800 with used prices coming in around £5,000.
The Scrambler 800 is a fine example of Ducati’s high-end workmanship and impressive finish-quality. Not to mention the fact that they have collaborated with some respected and recognisable names on this bike including Pirelli and Kayaba. There has been plenty of attention to detail on this bike making it a real beauty to look at and a exceptional joy to ride. It’s especially worth looking at if you want a bike with a quirky look but which doesn’t compromise on power and handling to get it.

Really manoeuvrable, easy to ride, very hard suspension, need to avoid bumps/ potholes or else your whole boy gets a thump
Engine & gearing perfect for the bike, sounds fantastic. Throttle response too sharp.
Suspension is mediocre at best
Great, solid performance, good feel
Chassis is great – forks need better damping. Rear shock could be bettee
Ok so it's the old Monster motor but it's got plenty of grunt and with the Termi silencers sounds great !
Ducati servicing is not the cheapest
