Suspicion is growing that Ducati is producing a new model of its Scrambler motorbike, with many expecting to see the bike in 2014.

There has been anticipation building around the new Scrambler in recent years, and the latest suggestion is that the new bike is close to completion, and it is likely to be revealed next year.

The Scrambler name was trademarked by Ducati back in March 2013, which sparked rumours that a new model of the popular bike would be available in the not too distant future.

The trademark of the name is intended to be used not only for motorbikes, but other merchandise such as t-shirts and gloves.

Ducati currently refuses to reveal whether the construction of a new Scrambler is underway, but many would argue that the signs are there, and it certainly wouldn't be a disappointment to bikers if it is revealed next year.

General opinion is that a new Scrambler would have a V-twin engine compared to the single-engine that previous models have had, and that the bike would get an overall makeover so that a classic design can be matched with a modern performance.

The first Ducati Scrambler was first produced in 1962, and the all-terrain bike was a popular choice for riders up until production was stopped in 1974.

The original Scrambler was popular with riders because it was affordable, with Ducati leaving the bike with only the necessities, making it cheap and light.

It was not the most powerful of bikes, but had a good overall performance and was considered a highly fashionable design.
