Taking inspiration from the customized Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle that three-time World SBK Champion Troy Bayliss and Dakar podium-finisher Jimmy Lewis piloted during the 2015 AMA Pro Flat Track Championship, Ducati has released an all-new Scrambler for 2016 – the Flat Track Pro.

The Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro is basically a Scrambler Full Throttle with a racier attitude centered around the yellow paint scheme. The Flat Track Pro’s styling is highlighted by a nose fairing, rear plate holders, yellow pin stripping around the wheels, and billet aluminum accessories such as the brake-fluid filler cap and footpegs.

All else is pure Scrambler Full Throttle, from the Termignoni exhaust to the tapered handlebars to the alloy wheels

The 2016 Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro is arrives with the 803cc Desmodue – transplanted from the Monster 796 – that produces 75 horsepower at 8250 rpm and 50.2 ft/lbs of torque at 5750 rpm. The Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro features a twin-spar steel trellis frame and a generous 56.9-inch wheelbase for true agility around town while remaining stable at speed.

Suspension duties are handled by a 41mm upside down stanchion Kayaba fork, and a Kayaba monoshock with adjustable preload out back. The Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro rolls on 10-spoke aluminum wheels shod in Pirelli MT60 RS tires – a 110/80 ZR18 up front, and a 180/55 ZR17 out back.

Regarding braking, the Scrambler Flat Track Pro uses a single 330mm disc up front squeezed by a four-piston Brembo monobloc radial-mount caliper, and a single 245mm disc griped by a single-piston caliper out back. The Scrambler also arrives with a two-channel Bosch ABS system – the only high-tech electronics found on the motorcycle.

As for the color, the 2016 Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro arrives in one color – “Racing Yellow” with black frame and black seat with yellow stitching. A stateside price has yet to be released, but expect to pay just over $10,000 for the Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro.
