There are four different versions of the Scrambler, but they are — outside of cosmetic differences — essentially the same motorcycle. The Icon is the base model, and at $2000 more there is the Full Throttle and the more retro-looking Classic. Ducati used a version of the 798cc motor from the Monster, opened to 803cc but with half the valves, and created a perfect beginner bike, or quasi-off road bike for more experienced riders. Balance is amazing, and the large lock-to-lock radius on the steering allows for very tight turning. The engine gives 70hp or so, and 50 ft./lbs. of torque — about on par with a Triumph Thruxton, but has a sixth gear.
