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.
