At US$8,600 in America, it's easy to see why the brand new Ducati Scrambler line has been a massive sales success. It's charming to look at, painfully retro-fashionable and totally approachable. It would also be incredibly easy to ride if it wasn't for the over-aggressive throttle mapping. It harks back to a time before motorcycles were separated into road, dirt and sports categories, when one bike had to do the lot, and Loz found it a lovely experience on our short road test.
