My favourite Ducati Scrambler from the 2016 range is the Full Throttle. It draws its inspiration from the flat-track and racing worlds. Not something that many people are exposed to here, but the motorcycle just feels right.
The “Deep Black” tank – which sports a dedicated logo with a yellow-black background. The seat also with yellow inserts, draws on flat-track origins. The end result is a sporty look and outstanding rider comfort.
Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle’s cons
The only thing I would really like to change is its short tail. It’s been done that way by Ducati to comply with bikes that roar round the oval tracks of the USA and Australia. But, for me, it needs a tail. A Scrambler Sixty2 kind of tail.
That’s it. At least from what I can tell from the pictures.
Full Throttle’s pros
What really made me look at this motorcycle was a Termignoni racing exhaust, homologated for road use. And, the color. “Deep Black” with black frame and black seat – nicely done!

This is more than just a new bike: it’s a whole new world, one that expresses itself via a range of versions that provide a starting point for satisfying the different needs and wants of individual motorcyclists. “Post-heritage” design gives a contemporary take on the iconic bike built by Ducati back in the 70s.
Ducati knows that its buyers will want to customise their motorcycles. They have achieved this with a huge range of apparel and bike accessories, that they are calling “ingredients”.
For example, chrome, matt black, or even carbon fibre tank side panels are available. Then there are a variety of solutions regarding the front mudguard, high plate holder, tank bag, canvas and leather panniers, high and low Termignoni slip-on exhaust, headlamp rim and grille, instrument panel rim, vintage grips, rear-view mirrors plus spoked wheels, four different seat versions and the low-slung tapered handlebars.
Nice recipe for success, Ducati!
