The Ducati Scrambler was the brand name for a series of single cylinder scrambler motorcycles made by Ducati for the American market from 1962 until 1974. Its creation is attributed to the American Berliner Motor Corporation. Models were produced in 250 cc through to 450 cc displacements. The 450 variant was sold as the "Jupiter" in the United States.
The first Scramblers (1962-1967) were derived from street-legal models, and featured "narrow case" engines with lightly altered frames. It originally derived from a Ducati Diana road bike converted by Michael Berliner for dirt-track racing in America.
These Scrambler models all had a maximum engine capacity of 250cc, and are generally referred to as "narrow case Scrambler(s)"
Our Ducati is of the second series, using a wider engine case. Frames were modified with experience derived from Bruno Spaggiari's Ducati factory racing motorcycles.
