The Italian manufacturer announced plans to launch a new Scrambler in 2015, over 40 years after the last model in the range left the factory. Ducati is expected to premiere this new, vintage-inspired motorcycle at Intermot next October.

Before revealing details on the characteristics of the new Scrambler, the Italian manufacturer has created a dedicated website. For the time being, Scramblerducati.com features only a short video on the project, ending with the outline of a new retro-style bike with wide handlebars.

So far, only a handful of Ducati insiders have laid eyes on the first prototype of the revived Scrambler. The new model could make its debut at Intermot, which takes place October 1-5 in Cologne.

Vintage-inspired designs have become a trend in the motorcycle industry in recent years, as exemplified by models such as the BMW R nineT and the Moto Guzzi V7.

Originally, Scrambler was the name given to a line of motorcycles with engines from 250cc to 450cc produced by Ducati from 1962 to 1974, primarily for the North American market.
