I'm glad to see any motorcycle company make something without ninja plastic shields.
For the money Ducati is asking , I would much rather wait for a beautiful Mcdeeb RE, if you can still get one at all.

The Borile is interesting looking, but I, too, would prefer the McDeeb. Definitely looks like a '50s Scrambler

According to the magazines and web, Ducati has recently trademarked the name "Ducati Scrambler," and are supposedly at work on a new machine.  There are renders of a concept that an unrelated artist created that the magazines and blogs are using but it's in no way official. 

It would be amazing if it resembled this Borile Scrambler, but I would wager it will not. And it would be an L-twin, not a single, for sure.

That Borile is a real beauty.

There is another V-Twin version

Up side down forks with gaiters.  Hmmm

It's a nice bike, but for $16K I'd rather buy a Hyabusa for $3K less.  Or for about the same price buy a real nice Aprilla SXV 550 Supermoto.
