Cool Scramblered Rider Here

Hi folks!

Current Ducati owner (Diavel for me, Monster for wife) and I'm looking to add a Scrambler. I was dead set on the Ducati Scrambler X Enduro Urban, but am now waiting to see what BMW does here. If pricing is right, I'm going Beemer. I'm still longing for the K1200R here in the US.

Welcome to the forum!

What pricing would you like to see the BMW priced at?

If it comes in within $1k of the Ducati and better performance, I'll go with it. Otherwise, I'll be sticking with Italian.

I'm not sure if it will be within $1k. I think it could be more than that.

What makes you like the Italians?

Do you find one is more reliable than the others?

I probably have a little flexibility on pricing, but not too much. I want a scrambler style bike at an appropriate price point. I already paid premiums on higher end bikes in my stable. I won't do it for a scrambler that is trying to cash in at a higher price point than Ducati because some badge buyer wants the blue propeller on their tank. I've owned a couple of BMWs too. The scrambler should come in around $10k or else I'm not buying it. Right now, Ducati's effort fits the bill. BMW has a chance to capture this market share if they aren't stupid and try to place a premium price on their brand scrambler. I'd buy the BMW given most things are equal because I love the styling with the single sided swing arm.

I think mostly you have to consider the difference in the engines.

One thing that makes the Ducati even more attractive is the fact that there are more than likely some on the used bike market, so someone looking for value can get even more value by buying used. And of course the money saved can be pocketed or spent on goodies... and that's always good

What kind of goodies would you like to buy for your Scrambler?

Upgrade suspension, exhaust, tail tidy... and probably more I can't think of right now.

What would you get?
