Latest news about the Scrambler 2015

I just read an article on an Italian online motorcycle magazine with some more exciting news about the new Scrambler. The news are not official, but seem to come from a reliable source.

First of all, the Scrambler will be available in the first months of 2015. 
There will be 2 displacements: 
- an 800 2 valve L-twin (803cc), air cooled, from the Monster 796. It won't have the 87hp of the Monster, but more likely around 80/85hp to have more power at low revs. Price is supposed to be around 7.500 to 8.000Euro.
- a 400 (!), but unsure if it will be a single or twin, with about 48hp (for the restricted A2 driving licence). Price between 6.000 and 6.500 Euro.

The introduction of the 400 is the biggest newsbit, making it not only the smallest but also the cheapest Ducati on offer. If they truly can take the single engine they used on the Supermono and bring it to the 21st century, that would be amazing and it would be an answer to what seems to be the online community's biggest desire.

Ducati Scrambler 2015 - New official teaser

We live in exciting times my friends.

Ducati has just given us the first official teaser for the long awaited Scrambler.

What we can see for now is that it will have lightly knobbed tires, a round headlight (thanks God!) but with a modern twist (acceptable) of LED lights. It will sport 10-spoke alloy rims, upside down forks and a rear wheel hugger...not a big fan of those, but easily removable. One of the colors will definitely be yellow. It's not visible in the teaser, but the exhaust system seems to be placed under the engine, as seen on the recent spy pics. hmmm
The tank, the seat and the swingarm seem to be the same too.

The new Scrambler looks very much like the classic one: small, narrow, simple and loooots of fun.
Ducati also started a new website dedicated to the newborn Scrambler. Check it out HERE.

EDIT: Visit Visordown for a much better spy pic

EDIT 2: So far the clearest picture...From http://www.motorradonline.de/

EDIT 3: New video available, showing the sound test behind the factory in Borgo Panigale.

POLL: Yamaha SR - Full Aluminium Fairing

It's poll time!

At the moment, if you want a full fairing for your Yamaha SR, you have to rely on Japanese manufacturers and we all know how much that can set you back financially. In addition, they're not aluminium fairings, but simply fiberglass.

What if there were a place where such a full aluminium fairing could be purchased for a fraction of its Japanese counterpart, all the while retaining a high level of craftsmanship? Hmm, what if.....?

That's exactly what I'm planning to do. The only problem I'm facing is that I can't decide on the design! Here's where I need your help. Please have a look at the following pictures and vote for what you think the best design is. You can do it here below or on the OmegaRacer Facebook page.

Let the voting begin!






Not really a contender in the poll, but while we're at it...let me know what you think.

EDIT 2016: The Finished Fairing

My bike is now finished and I'm very happy of the result. It's called Sunmaster14 and it has already been published online by Pipeburn, Return of the Cafe Racer, Inazuma Cafe, Ottonero, SR Times, and will appear next month in the German paper magazine CRAFTRAD, Italian magazine SPECIAL CAFE and French magazine RAD MOTORCYCLES.
