    Ancient crappy Pantah motor? Must-a Be-a Joking-huh?

    It's like a Yamaha Star Bolt 950, pretending to be a dirt bike. Mixed with a few little SR500 styling cues.

    Everything Ducati produces these days looks cheap, tacky and dated. And I don't mean retro.

    It would be neat with a CX 650 motor.

    Danger, is my business.

    Why you still persist in being the village idiot is beyond me, but you're still good for a half laugh at times.

    Looks like it could be a fun around town bike.

    I like it too, it seems like a jack of all trades master of none simple motorcycle. Knowing ducati they will find some way to screw it up, screw all their customers in some way, and still be praised because they are Italian and good looking.

    I don't remember the 70's desmo 450 scrambler being such an icon that would warrant this. I think it was a mediocre seller when new.

    Ducati needs a single.

    Mediocre sales when new means that it is super rare and interesting now.
    Hence the baller hipsterness of the new rendition.

    ----Good grief. Delve into some of the "lifestyle" photos in the gallery to find cringeworthy moments, such as "man stands on bike at sunset," "man leaps over bike at the beach" and my favorite – "bike breaks down next to haystack."

    If a bike breaking down next to a haystack doesn't make you want to buy one of these things, then what will???

    I think the bike looks pretty cool, but being that its a ducati I'm assuming the price will be steep.(Well, steep for me anyway) And I'm with hillsy, his pic is legit.
