Motorcycles are inherently dangerous and riders are only allowed so much protection from the gear that we choose to place on our bodies. Dainese has always been an innovator when it comes to motorcycle safety. They were the first to incorporate back protectors into the leather pajamas that early motorcycle racers wore in the late 70's, and more recently they were the first to dream up the incorporation of airbags into jackets and race suits in 1995 and then implement them for testing in 2000.

As is the way when you have a good idea, others latch on like a bunch of lampreys and suck the life right out of it. There is a bit of a legal battle over the patents of the use of airbags in motorcycle gear. Alpinestars and Dainese are currently engaged in a he-said-she-said over the patents. Dainese holds several patents and had issued a cease and desist to certain German retailers of Alpinestars Tech-Air systems. AStars tried to get ahead of the news publicly by issuing a statement to the press essentially stating that the cease and disist had been issued, but not a legal action. Thus leaving readers to infer that they had done nothing legally wrong.

According to Zigwheels.com, Claudio Domenicali, the CEO of Ducati, hinted that there could be a Ducati Scrambler 1100 at 2016's EICMA.

As recently as last month's EICMA, Ducati revealed the 40cc Scrambler Sixty2, a downsized version of the Scrambler. Domenicali said theres a possibility for a Scrambler with higher displacement.

"A 1100cc model can still be a Scrambler as long as it keeps to the same formula and doesn’t try to be too technical or make things too complex," Domenicali said to Motorcycle News. "There will be a family of Scrambler motorcycles. All of these will be called Scrambler and they will be about simple fun; something that sits on the other side of the garage from the Ducati sportsbike and is perfect for a Sunday morning ride to get a coffee. These bikes will be about basic technology, just the bike and nothing more.”


If there is any truth to this rumor, we could expect it at next year's EICMA...

CNBC-TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards 2016: Ducati Scrambler wins Import Motorcycle of the Year
The Ducati Scrambler may be the entry point into Ducati ownership but it’s a terrific motorcycle in its own right. Small and nimble, the Ducati Scrambler packs a powerful air/oil-cooled V twin motor and a capable chassis that is as happy on smooth roads as it is on dirt trails. The Scrambler appeals with it’s versatility. It can be an absolute weapon in traffic but as we found out in our anniversary issue it is equally at home when we’re tearing it up in the harsh environment of Ladakh. One for the enthusiast, the Scrambler is a motorcycle that will never cease to entertain and its relative affordability certainly beckons!
